The Guardian Weekly - - Diversions -

Should we an­tic­i­pate the world of the Jet­sons or the Flint­stones?

Both: Trump is off to the moon and Mars, while his spar­ring with Kim Jong-un could lead to bomb­ing us all back to the stone age. Rhys Win­ter­burn, Perth, West­ern Australia

• I’m just hop­ing our chil­dren’s chil­dren still have a world. David Isaacs, Syd­ney, Australia

• Nei­ther the Jet­sons nor the Flint­stones but the Pilt­downs. Philip Stig­ger, Burn­aby, Bri­tish Columbia, Canada

• At the rate we’re go­ing it’s more likely to be cob­ble­stones! Mike Mab­butt, Wind­sor, NSW, Australia

• What do you mean, an­tic­i­pate? We are al­ready well into the au­to­mated fu­ture por­trayed in the Jet­sons. Even­tu­ally, when we have ru­ined the planet and there are some sur­vivors in a post-apoc­a­lyp­tic age, they will be the Flint­stones. Ursula Nixon, Bo­dalla, NSW, Australia

• Fred’s Cob­ble­stone County would cer­tainly be more sus­tain­able. David Tucker, Halle, Ger­many

• More to the point, will fam­i­lies, in what­ever form, still be around? Richard Or­lando, West­mount, Que­bec, Canada

• Nei­ther. I’m think­ing Robin Hood and feu­dal­ism. Lawrie Bradly, Sur­rey Hills, Vic­to­ria, Australia
