The Foresight Saga: A Dramatic Interlude

  • Nigel Forward


It has been pointed out to me that nothing really happens in these two scenes — no bombs, no spies, no love interest — and that perhaps a better sub-title would be ‘An Undramatic Interlude’. Moreover the international scenario is unimaginative and I have made no attempt to speculate on the changed nature of world politics and Britain’s position in the world in 1986 — or whenever it is supposed to be. My only purpose is to suggest by illustration some of the difficulties of communication that must arise between the priests of a high cult — simulation — and the practitioners of political action who alone can provide the correct setting for the simulation.
