• The imperialists of the future are imperialists of the mind

    by  • May 3, 2010 • Everything Else • 3 Comments

    in a page is a seven essay collection describing our global situation from different perspectives. Here’s a taste.

    We have a serious problem. Communism leads to genocide. But Capitalism leads to ecocide. Our models of wealth are so broken that high tech societies of all kinds are inoperable on the long scale. The robo-nano-bio revolution will bring weapons, simple to make and hide, and of unparalleled destructiveness.

    Try starting with the seventh seal.

    The essays are designed for printing. Please pass them around, and let me know what you think.

    flattr this!

      Due to the knock-on effects, one might even argue that capitalism leads to *anthrocide*.
