Is this what’s in store?

June 12, 2030 began like several different day in memory—and through then, stories have been long.  because melanoma have been cured fifteen years sooner than, America’s inhabitants was once getting older rapidly.  That appears like excellent news, yet think about this: thousands of child boomers, with a massive usual predator picked off, have been sucking dry advantages and assets that have been by no means intended to carry them into their eighties and beyond.  teens round the state simmered with resentment towards “the olds” and anger on the treadmill they can by no means get off of simply to hold their parents’ entitlement programs.

But on that June twelfth, every thing replaced: a tremendous earthquake devastated la, and the govt, continually teetering at the fringe of financial disaster, was once not able to respond. 

The fallout from the earthquake units in movement a sweeping novel of principles that pits nationwide wish for the long run opposed to assurances from the prior and is peopled through a memorable forged of refugees and billionaires, presidents and revolutionaries, all suffering to discover their way.  In 2030, the author’s all-too-believable imagining of the place today’s demanding situations could lead on us the following day makes gripping and thought-provoking reading.

Example text

De klimatologiska anläggningarna som sedan några generationer tillbaka styrde vädret i välfärdsstaten hade programmerats för sol den dag då valen inföll, vilket gjorde att många avstod. När det programmerades om till regn hjälpte inte detta, människorna hade efter de förbättrade möjligheterna att klimatvariera sina lägenheter alltmer tappat lusten för att gå ut överhuvudtaget. Valsystemet byggdes då in i TV-n, vilket till en början varit framgångsrikt. När valdeltagandet trots detta sjönk hade man övergått till ett system som innebar att väljaren fick markera ett partival på sitt ”valkonto” och det fick sedan fortsatta att galla som denne väljares avgivna röst på valdagen, så länge ingen ändring gjordes.

Han rekapitulerade från rapporterna att ingen nöjaktig förklaring hade stått att finna till varför så många unga avled. Den enda hållbara teorin som fanns var att den totala passiviteten och stora bristen på meningsfyllda uppgifter eller saker att utföra ledde till att kroppen och hjärnan förtvinade. 29 Inte i fysisk bemärkelse, men i psykisk. Därifrån till att förklara varför detta ledde till en dödlig utgång var dock vägen lång. Hade hans son dött av att han hade haft för lite att göra? Han tänkte på sin egen pressade arbetssituation.

Människan fuskar, slår, våldtar och krigar över hela världen. Hur självklart detta än kan tyckas är det dock inte samma sak som att ett politiskt parti formar sitt idealsamhälle utifrån dessa påtagliga mänskliga svagheter. Tvärtom, alla partier utgår mer eller mindre 58 från att människan är ofelbar och skall fås att växa och ges större självbestämmande. Skillnaderna ligger oftare i att de politiska partierna har olika bild a v vem eller vilka krafter i samhället som förhindrar människan från att kunna leva ut i frihet.
