A year of prophesying is a collection of 55 newspaper columns written by H. G. Wells in 1925.
Written during 1923 and 1924, they were published by the McClure Syndicate. In them, Wells spoke on a variety of topics and made predictions such as a war between the United States and Japan (which ended up happening), expressed his support for animal policies and his rejection of fascism.
Wells had previously written columns in other newspapers of the likes of the New York Times, which earned him a reputation and a great deal of demand.
Although these articles were written almost a century ago, Wells' ideas and predictions have remained surprisingly relevant and are still of interest to readers today.
"I am one of those people who believe that if human affairs are to go on without decay and catastrophe, there must be an end to the organisation of war. I believe that the power to prepare for war and make war must be withdrawn from separate States, as already it has been withdrawn from separate cities and from districts and from private individuals, and that ultimately there must be a Confederation of all mankind to keep one peace throughout the world."
