Cyberpunk... a futile warning!

We don't choose our cyberpunk, it's chosen for us.  Companies like Wal-Mart, Monsanto, Del-Monte, Halliburton, BP, Fannie Mae,........

Greed.... the elite capitalist dogma of Profit above all else and damn repercussions.  That is what is creating our dystopia.  People who treat 1984 like a how-to book, and see Ayn Rand as a visionary.  Governments beholden to corporations, and too divided by party lines to work for the greater good.  That is what is creating the overriding sense of paranoia leaving us handicapped in the onslaught of the future.  The cyberpunks are the ones who see this coming, who warn us it's happening now, who fight against it, or retreat altogether to try and whether the storm.

Utopia requires people to work together, united in their efforts to promote harmony, tolerance, and community.  It requires a governing body concerned with the well being of it's citizens.  This is not something we are moving towards, it's something we are actively moving away from.

  1. Cyberpunk is already here. You're either a Cyberpunk living life on the edge and trying to make a better tomorrow. Or you're sitting in that corporate office, cigarette smoke on your breath - just waiting to be ordered to die.
