A nightmare totalitarian industrial world, in which everything living is being poisoned to death and in which dehumanised people are subjected to full-spectrum physical and psychological control by slave-masters they never dare question.
So here is where the modern world and its self-mythologising cult of “progress” was leading us… Who’d have thought it, eh?
The warnings have been there, of course, whether from science fiction writers and filmmakers (They Live!, The Terminator, Equals…), musicians or the dozens of thinkers featured on this website.
They warned us where this would end up if we didn’t do something, but we collectively spurned their advice and here we are, on the very brink of a long-term and probably fatal dystopia.
The important question now is how we are going to get out of this global hi-tech concentration camp.
Part of the answer is that we need to keep alive, and spread as widely as possible, a vision of how the world could be, of another way of living which is utterly different from the sterile and robotic hell currently lined up for us and those who will come after.
It is very much part of the ruling elite’s propaganda to insist that their future is the only future, that no other possibility even exists.
They are always keen to dismiss the idea of a different society as totally fanciful, empty-headed or even positively dangerous, removing us from the protective bliss of the prison they have built around us.
