You know how there's a "rule of the internet" that: "if you can imagine it, there's porn of it"

Is there a similar rule like "anything dystopian you can imagine, a techbro somewhere is non-ironically trying to make into reality"? Because

@bgcarlisle i don't think so, but I think there probably is a similar rule of "every dystopia designed to highlight the flaws of society is seen by someone as a blueprint for success"

@InspectorCaracal @bgcarlisle I mean, dystopias are usually utopias for members of the ruling class.

@bgcarlisle "...and that is how I believe VR technology will enable every Martha to better track handmaidens and econowives in real-time through the power of crowd sourcing. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk."

@bgcarlisle the worst part about this is that it's impossible to even joke about this without bringing up entirely plausible scenarios that are terrifying and just around the corner.

@bgcarlisle wait is there a techbro trying to make Living World Season 1 happen

because that'd actually be pretty cool
