Emails from the future, Part 3

The other day, I picked up a local newsletter in a café and idly flicked through the pages. The second last page caught my eye. It was filled with the adverts of various spiritual gurus who promised to solve all problems, cure any illness, and vanquish black magic, at a very reasonable charge. I’m pretty sure that the niche for such gurus is not going to go away in the future. If anything, they will be even more popular…
