Free-market communism ensnares Earth in its boundless clutch as distributed ledgers, machine learning, neural engineering, gene editing, and infinitely renewable energy launch an age beyond scarcity. Network protocols obliterate the ghost protocols of nation-states. Cities unbound from geography. Fractal pluralities fragment world orders as internet-scale cooperatives amputate invisible hands. Govern-mental institutions are remodelled as serotonin reuptake fulfilment centres. It’s giving euphoria-heterotopia intoxication-amnesia.
