HG Wells' Things to Come - 1936

A movie that plays with this idea a bit; worth a watch, IMO

Cabal declares that the work of rebuilding must go ahead with the creation of a new planned, technological society. So the second theme of the film scientific planning - emerges. 'Planning' was the great panacea of the 1930s. It was based on faith in the efficacy of reason and science to tackle and overcome whatever problems faced the nation. The lengthy quasi-documentary sequence detailing the building of the New World is a celebration of technology. At the end of it, we see Everytown in 2036, a great new underground city of shining towers, white, clean, clinical, with artificial light and air, huge television screens and scientifically prolonged life. A child, being given a history lesson by her grandfather, declares happily: ‘keep on inventing things and making life lovelier and lovelier.' The latest invention is the space gun, which will launch a projectile to begin the exploration of the universe. Oswald Cabal (Raymond Massey), John's grandson, and Raymond Passworthy (Edward Chapman) discuss the expedition, on which Passworthy's son and Cabal's daughter will be the crew. Passworthy is fearful, and the people share his fears. The symbol of reaction is Theotocopoulos (Cedric Hardwicke), sculptor, artist and individualist. He hates the cold, planned, technological perfection in which they live. He rouses the populace to destroy the space gun, but before they can reach it, it is launched. Passworthy asks if there is ever to be any rest.
