As the benevolent forces of Progress whisk us towards a better and more secure tomorrow, there are always those in society who insist on dragging their heels.
They turn up their noses at global smart governance, they insist on the value of a reality that is not virtual, they cling to outmoded notions of “naturalness”, community, truth and freedom.
By spreading misinformation, voicing malicious opinion and breaching public safety norms they endanger both lives and economic sustainability.
In this triptych of novellas, Paul Cudenec introduces us to some of these sinister anti-social misfits. We find ourselves in chillingly close proximity to conspiracy theorists, denialists, technophobes and extremists – in short, to sworn enemies of the modern world.
