Can we imagine a future somewhere between TRON City and the Shire? We usually don't–but should and, perhaps, must.
Problem is utopian thinking in general, which always leaves someone out and puts an elite in control of life decisions.
Enjoyed reading this on different ideals on how sustainability intersects with technology. Also a big fan of the Three-Body trilogy
Excellent post! I think that there are more 'punk' categories that are optimistic about the future though, see for example Terrapunk: https://nasjaq.substack.com/p/the-terrapunk-manifesto
