What’s Wrong with Science Fiction?

“For the New World Order, a world government is just the beginning. Once in place they can engage their plan to exterminate 80% of the world’s population, while enabling the “elites” to live forever with the aid of advanced technology. For the first time, crusading filmmaker Alex Jones reveals their secret plan for humanity’s extermination, Operation: ENDGAME”

This is…Pure.  Nonsense.

It’s based on a core science fiction fallacy repeated by too many writers over the last few decades:  Only one aspect of our technosphere will change in the future; everything else will remain the same.

Did this happen in the last 2o0 years?  Of course not.  Did it happen since SF writers started spewing this garbage?  Hell no.  Look around you.  See what hundreds of millions of people have achieved.

Those of us who take the implications of accelerating technology seriously know that it will continue to profoundly change every aspect of our technological lives.  For instance, instead of worrying about leaving the rest of mankind behind in the dust, we should be expecting to meet the Singularity with everyone as we “grow our own” with easily replicated replicators, and as our nanobots repair and maintain our young, healthy bodies.

Dystopia is out of fashion because it simply does not align with Optimism as the New Realism.
