The Time Traveler: 

In the early 21st century, almost everyone will have these little
boxes we carry.  They permit us to instantly communicate with nearly
anyone in the world.  We can verbally ask these devices nearly any
question and get an immediate answer.  They can show us virtually any
movie or video, display live news around the globe, play any music.
They can show us where we are and how to get where we want to go.
It's like magic, my friend.  You can only imagine!

1968 Guy: 

Hey man, that's groovy!  Wow, the 21st century sounds great.  So no
more health care problems?  No more income and wealth inequalities?
No more civil rights and freedom of speech battles?  No more having to
demonstrate and camp out in parks to fight the government and the
banks?  No more wars?  I can't wait!

The Time Traveler: 

Uh, did I mention that it also shows photos of cute kitties?
