Industrial Society and its Future

Perhaps some of you, old enough to have been adults 1995, do recognise the title. But I suspect most of you don’t, particularly if you are not living in the US.

I find this document interesting, specially when considering that it is written almost 30 years ago. The predictions made then seem eerily real for me know, 30 years later.

Of course, I’m in no way endorsing the “method of action” of the author (who is serving multiple lifetime sentence in maximum security prison), but I find very few if any errors in his analysis on the modern society and its future.

If you don’t want to read the full doc, I suggest you at least read the section on control of humans, starting in paragraph 143.

    What is interesting about this is that the author is certified as insane.

    Thanks.

    • Yes. And in one way he for sure is. On the other hand, his analysis/prediction is spot on. Buckle up, because the next 10 years or so will give you a ride no one of us have ever experienced.
