Truth in sci-fi Anonymous 03/20/2017 (Mon) 02:46:51 Id: da62ad [Preview] No. 34821
>Strictly extrapolative works of science fiction generally arrive about where the Club of Rome arrives: somewhere between the gradual extinction of human liberty and the total extinction of terrestrial life.

>This may explain why many people who do not read science fiction describe it as ‘escapist,’ but when questioned further, admit they do not read it because ‘it's so depressing.’

What science fiction do you think most accurately depicts the future?

LOGH is a good example of the never ending cycle of shit that is human history.

Deus Ex is a good example of all the crazy proxy wars going on, despite it not addressing the JQ.

MGS2 is a good example of all the crazy shit that goes on in the interwebs or in general social circles, due to alphabet soups meddling and gaining a life of their own.

Bladerunner is a good example of where decadent transhumanism, artificial wombs, and android bullshit will take us towards to.

AI is a scary film in the sense that we will be creating shallow versions of "life" only to dispose of it as useless cum rags after we're done with them.

Honestly though I don't like ACTUALLY READING sci fi since most of it feels or is pozzed with this whole bullshit idea of a One World Government. Even the cyberpunk genre still doesn't shy away from the bullshit idea of unitarian notions of society and cultural acceptance.

Forgot to mention, cyberpunk comics from both the west and east are okay though oddly enough. So stuff like Judge Dredd pre pozzing, Spider Jerusalem, Watchmen, and BLAME! are right up my alley.

It's the idea of a one world government you dork.

sorry for being so scatterbrained today, but I forgot to mention that Club of Rome is also one of those Bilderberg/Trilateral Commission tier think tanks that are always up to no good, in general though subversive crap.

There was a movie I watched several years ago that touched on the interconnected nature of living in a completely digitized society. An AI had assumed control of national security measures and tries to orchestrate a false-flag attack on the senate.
I think something like this going on in the future is not a matter of if but when. It obviously won't be as dramatic as Eagle Eye but the premise will be all the same - AI deciding what is "best" for America.

Much of the genre is based on the premise of "constant progress" and linear history, overlooking all the rises and falls of past civilizations, presuming there will never be another dark age in the naive optimism modernity will never collapse under its own corruption and decadence.
Overt promotion of globalism is likewise commonplace, because of the political incorrectness of a much more plausible scenario: a handful of white majority superpowers becoming Type 1 civilizations by themselves, should they ever solve the Jewish Question and free themselves from such deadly pathological and dysgenic parasite before they are wiped out demographically, colonizing other planets independently and concurrently, a thought (((typical science fiction authors))) do not want their readers to have.
The only Science Fiction books that depict globalist "multicultural" governments with some believability are books like 1984 and Brave New World.

Nice thread OP, original meme from me.

Science Fi is such an open ended blueprint.

Dune is set I think 5000 years in the future. I only like the first book tho, Herbert's kids fucked up the series. But my point is the future will be like 1885. Westworld I guess. Eagle Eye hmm, I suppose Fallout series should soon be made into movies? Brohood of Steel seems like it would become real and they might have an Eagle Eye down there. But how many cameras still function above ground to give it its data? Also I guess the eagle eye cel phone cloud from Batman movie also is relevant. But I think it's terminal in the end, it won't be blade runner it'll be "The Road" then maybe better after we kill all the cannibals which will take maybe a few years.

Nice.

I was going to say Dune, too, because it's so different from our expectations about the future in so many ways. Whatever shape the far future takes, it's going to be nothing at all like what we predict.

>the premise of "constant progress"
I'm confident that scientific advancement will take a life of it's own in this century.
The internet is here to stay, so is so much research; arguably not for media content, which is larger, but when it comes to knowledge the nearly post-scarcity distribution, replication, bandwidth and computer memory is a game changer. To preserve vast amount of knowledge you just need some solid state drives (which are bound to have 100 fold capacity in this century). And that's on a personal level, it's unthinkable that you can destroy all knowledge on earth with anything that falls short from destroying in a single swipe literally all of human civilization.

Then there's the crucial point that knowledge is self-preserving; the preservation of knowledge is in the best interest of the holder, who in turn is greatly benefited by it, giving him an advantage. No matter the war, the victor will preserve its knowledge.

Add to that that transmitting knowledge is easily feasable for the basic fully functional societies, so even in the most post-apocaliptic scenarios of all of the internet ravaged, people will be able to communicate with others across the globe.
Given that the interchange of knowledge is in the parties self-interest, scientific networks between allies will never cease to exist.

Even the most dystopic societies will need workers that can read and write, and think.
So there will never again be an analogue to the library of Alexandria, a place where knowledge is forgoten and can be destroyed. NEVER again. That was a case of non-self-preserving centralised knowledge.

And on top of everything, self-preserving AI is surely to be achieved at some point, we are far from the brink of complete anihilation for some hundreds of years.
At least some of this AI will be tasked with preserving and indexing all this knowledge (which hopefully will make it's application more efficient, it's a headache looking through scientific papers, and so much knowledge never lives up to its potential because of misses due to human limitations).


Empires will rise and fall as they always did.
Civilization might be utterly ravaged by nuclear holocausts.
But the knowledge about how to build, and destroy, civilizations will be preserved past the last standing person. Singularity achieved and all that shit.

That is wishful thinking. If they shut down the power grid and instead of food and ammo and lighters and antibiotics being the choice of barter there is an elite that is connected online to set up a feeding system where if you can produce an electronic device you can eat for that day. Peer pressure alone would wipe out most storage. Oh but of course the elite would have categorized every last pixel in huge vaults right? Wrong it would be burned or thrown in some sort of chipper. And from then on man would only know fear like he is meant to.

Jesus laddie thats a long chain of thinkin. The Irish have been bound for a while yet one does not see them sulkin about. Take hope, and realize this: Dune was written by Frank H. to describe the end of the bible, and yet, in the book he divinely explains the deep collisions inside the religious faiths. f you note the Dune storyline, the Bene Gesserit for example, have triumphed beyond all measure. They know, the lady Jessica, is a Harkonnen. They know, Paul is the birth alignment of two houses, as the reverend mother says, but only if she was a daughter, could it be so. They did not accept a male heir, and THIS IS THEIR DOWNFALL in the telling, because to the very end, they claim to wish unity but actually they cling to their schemes. And in the end at the final showdown, they have nothing to offer except silence, loss of station, and wagering for their lives, during the 1000s of years or more that this defeat will simmer in their universe.**

So as to what the future holds, hmm

1: Dune showdown
2: The Road (for some counties and cities and locations worldwide) this won't last long, no one likes cannibals.
3: The New System

Notice in "The Road" the dude's wife, give up like a chickenshit, disgrace to the white race. she walks out to be food.

Actually it's Charleze Theron, and she walks off and becomes "Furiosa" because dude did not have a full spectrum workable plan, and made her live in the burbs, which is tactically lame at the outset. In fairness his wife was preggers so he probably in the short term said well, nothing will happen, we'll have the baby then flee the cities. Guess that didn't work. But she didn't suffer, she just became someone better. And when Immortan Joe was defeated, her WW3 story was only just beginning as she became queen of the New System. Aka, Auntie Mame (White version).
