    Default ourfuture is one of cameras on high poles

    Hi
    Could you help me get the meaning of the underlined part.
    1. Our future is one of cameras on high poles, soulless shopping malls, children with idle hands and empty heads and enough dole money for booze.

    Does it mean we'll live in isolation?

    Thanks a lot.
    Being a non-native teacher, I'm so thrilled being in such a superb forum.

    I assume that it means that we will all be under constant surveillance by CCTV cameras. That's not too far in the future in the UK.
