Was the guy who wrote that a prophet or something?
Because that is what happens.
The guy goes into the future and finds the surface dwellers who are completely ignorant, accepting, and just plain blaise about everything, and the morlocks that live underneath.
The morlocks eat them, and they just take it because they are dumb. The surface dwellers are incredibly creepy in this book, they are those kind of wide eyed people who just grin at you with that soul less look in their eyes.
True book though, albeit a metaphor.
