So not the One True Socialism then?Well yes, any society you can think of that has a possibility of existing on Earth.
Reminds me of that one episode of The Orville where the crew goes to a Current Year-esque planet with a rating system like that.The increasingly probable future where social credit scores become mainstream.
That already happened IRL.all porn is banned.
I think it'd be worse without the labor. An automated hellscape with no work, only endless hours of "leisure" because people have become superfluous but for some reason the state doesn't just kill them. You aren't allowed to create anything, that could undermine the state. You just sit there, a slug, consuming.Everything you say and do is monitored and policed to bring you "in line" with what a handful of elites want you to say and do. There is no leisure time, only endless labor followed by collapsing in a heap at the end of the day, only to repeat the process endlessly until you expire at which point you will be cremated unceremoniously and promptly forgotten. Your kids are not taught, they are trained and indoctrinated. You don't remember anymore what it's like to have an ounce of freedom of any sort, you have no real ties to your family and offspring as you are in competition with all of them from day one and the state takes your kids from you as soon as they leave the breast.
You are kept suitably medicated on whatever is prescribed for you, you feel little but fear and exhaustion until you feel nothing at all. You are a cog in a machine lubricated and fueled by the blood of your fellow man, lacking in any purpose but service to the elites. You have no appreciation for art, as art does not feed you, make you less tired, or free you in any meaningful fashion and you only read instructions and warnings. You never see the sky anymore, as you are shuttered in a building for most of your waking hours.
You'd hate where I live in real life. It's like a giant strip mall of strip malls. There's nothing around here but pavement, corporate-looking buildings, and landscaping. There's so much light pollution that only a handful of the brightest celestial bodies are visible at night. The only sounds are pretty much just running motors (the city never sleeps) and human activity. Pretty much the only things around here that are free are breathing (polluted air) and sunshine (through polluted skies) -- for now.A world without the beauty of nature.
tl;dr: where I live IRL is the Chipman dream come trueThe future envisioned by Blob Chipman.
