What would our planet be like if George Lucas was in charge? Would he be benevolent as ruler, or would he perhaps fall victim to the absolute corruption of absolute power?
I have no idea, but I bet the world would be a much more interesting place. So here’s what I imagine would change if we had Emperor Lucas.
1) That’s No Moon…
Come on, this one was too easy! How could you NOT want to build an orbital weapons platform?
2) NASA Gets a Blank Check
We’d be on Mars in the next year, not the next decade
3) There’d Be One Religion
Hope your blood is full of Midichlorians. Whatever the hell they are.
4) History of the World, Part 2
George would rewrite history books to meet HIS version of the past, and figure that all old history books would have disintegrated within the next century.
5) Cloning Humans Made Legal
How else would he build his army?
6) Robotics: The Next BIG Thing
Hey, I want my own R2 unit!
7) Eventually, We’d All Be Bald
That’s right, a THX joke. And just like the movie, not a very good one. But just think how the hat industry would flourish!
8) Plastic Politicians
If you get a job with the new Galactic Government, they’ll make an action figure of you. No matter how minor your role is.
9) C-SPAN Becomes CGI-SPAN
Every senator is replaced by a CGI alien. As long as there are no Gungans, that might not be too bad.
10) The World WILL End in 2012
According to Seth Rogen, George actually believes that the world will end in 2012. So come what may, he’ll make sure it happens. See #1.
So there you have it; the top 10 things that George would do if he ever became emperor of the world. I have to admit, it’s not a terrible future. Tons of money would get dropped into research and science, we’d all be using lightsaber letter openers, and Harley-Davidson could make a REALLY cool speeder bike. I can certainly think of worse futures.
