Wrong or right is imho incorrect. They’ve just seen the future differently. Other times/cultures, other pictures of the future. Yet it tells a lot about the past present.
Never get tired of past futurism. How they were wrong is far more interesting than how they were right.
Agree, it’s all about the sensibility. Like when the mum asks the dad to buy garlic and tells him, like a stalker, exactly where the nearest store is when he’s in the car, because she sees where he is on the screen. If they’ve lived there for a while, I’m sure he knows where the store is? Why follow him around on a screen, it’s creepy.
Sad truth: Despite above arguments, right wing politicians in Stockholm want to turn the whole city into a mall. City center/Downtown is also very much run by rich folks expecting everyone to obey their rules instead of accepting it as a collective space (for example forcing bars to close down because they make too much noise while still choosing to live on busy shopping/social streets). Public transport is expensive, creating segregation. Stockholm really is a city in transition.
