The terrifying implications of the 20th century, the prospects of a ''liberated'' future.The nature of Ideology, the ruins of Marxism, Political Ecology and other ''post-left'' quandaries.Whether or not a dialectical end of history is a tenable idea anymore. Scarcity, the limits of reason, theology, and why it wont ever go away.The possibility of life on other planets, Geo-Engineering/Terraforming Space elevators and Drone Wars, The difference between androids and cyborgs. What to make of my life, the meaning of my freaky-deeky dreams. The hidden value of waste. Paranoia, real and imagined.
