We already live in a low-dystopian society. Multinational corporations fuck over the environment and exploit workers on the daily, the media keeps large swathes of the population whipped into political fervor with false stories, lies, half-truths, and general bullshit, the social and political divides are greater than they have ever been, and we're only a hairsbreadth from corporations owning people.

Oh, and hilariously, while most media…comics, films, television shows, novels, etc made it seem like the cause of dystopia would be right-wing religious authoritarianism, the complete opposite has happened…the far-left socialist authoritarians have taken over western society via mass media, post-secondary education, and silicon valley tech sectors.

This is the weirdest dystopia.

Today's era of emerging low-life high-tech life standards is more of a clusterfuck for me.

Yes, at least that seems to be the case with big tech and media corporations. They primarily bias a hard left narrative. Anything contrarion is derezzed or surpressed. These people are just globalist technocrats who want to be on the top and never have to suffer sharing a room with a mere pleb.

>Far-left socialist… multinational corporations? You sure about that?

Virtually every major multinat and NGO is pushing for globalist agendas like open borders, reducing the power of the nation-state, promoting degenerate and fringe sexual identities, dismantling localized cultural norms in favor of a prefabricated "world citizen" identity, and so on. Nowadays these are positions typical for self-described "socialists" and "leftists", even though they're really just marching to the tune that's played for them by the institutions that own them.

We're living in very strange times. The left/right dichotomy doesn't really work anymore. The real question now is globalism vs. the nation-state. In a way, cyberpunk fiction in the 80s predicted this, but we were all so caught up in the 20th century's political status quo that it didn't really become apparent until recently.

For a fun time, look up the WTO riots in Seattle. The "left" and the "right" unified to protest globalization. That hasn't really happened since because both movements have been subverted and made to fight each other.

Thanks for the archive.

There is a fundamental disconnect in most critical writing about cyberpunk fiction. Most of the hacks who get paid pennies to scribble 4000 marketable words re cyberpunk are poorly informed. They can make perfunctory genuflections at the idol of William Gibson, but they haven't really done much reading.

Long before William Gibson started writing Neuromancer, there was a thriving literary movement trying to produce neo-noir sci-fi. William Gibson eventually joined that movement and threw out the label "cyberpunk," and by dumb luck he was rewarded far beyond the scope of his actual contribution. William Gibson did not invent cyberpunk so much as he took credit for neo-noir.

As a result, people ignore the fact that neo-noir science fiction is the larger sci-fi context within which cyberpunk flourished.

Many of the technologies required for cyberpunk have failed to materialize, notably neural interfaces and high-quality implantable prosthetics. Many of the technologies that would have been required for a fully cyberpunk world do exist, but have been repressed more harshly than Gibson ever imagined (see the War on Drugs).

Finally, some technologies evolved in ways that Gibson had no inkling of. 3-D printing, crypto-currency, and copyright infringement through BitTorrent are all part of the real world, but Gibson didn't imagine them. So, the article is wrong to say "cyberpunk is now." Perhaps we could say "neo-noir is now" but that is so vague that one shouldn't even bother to say it.

Gibson didn't invent the term "cyberpunk." It was coined by Bruce Bethke, who used it as the title for a short story he wrote in 1980: https://archive.is/4FbOA

What Gibson did invent was the term "cyberspace", which had never been used before. Gibson was the first to reference a space "inside" the computer, to represent the network itself as a physically accessible place. This is what caught the imagination of a much wider audience and what really lent to cyberpunk's cultural impact in the mid 80's through the mid 90's.

I think anyone with an honest interest in cyberpunk understands (or at least, they should understand) that it's a subset of the neo-noir or tech-noir genre. Most of the time people misusing the term are normies that only pay attention to it because it's a cultural fad.

>Finally, some technologies evolved in ways that Gibson had no inkling of. 3-D printing, crypto-currency, and copyright infringement through BitTorrent

Gibson did predict 3-D printing (it's a plot-relevant technology in the Bridge trilogy), and he did describe a world in which digital currencies had replaced physical ones (although arguably this is more a reference to the rise of credit/debit cards than any truly digital currency).

No. No it isn't. Every time that corporations and governments and society at large gets a hold of something "edgy" they round it all over and distort it to fit what they want.

Donald Trump. He's been supporting fringe right-wing politicians for quite some time now. And he's both a billionaire and the president now.

Robert Mercer and his family openly support alt-right.

Peter Thiel is more libertarian than alt-right, same's with the Koch Brothers. And I think it was Andressen (from a16z venture capitalist fund) who defended Milo Yiannopoluos on Twitter is generally anti-lefty.

There's also much more conservative and tranditional Republican supporters among corporations, and even more among billionaires (You're definitely right in saying that pride and wommen empowerement is trendy now, so I guess some millionaires simply support right-wing movements individually, rather through corporate means just to avoid backlash).

Alt-right public speakers are petty and childish so I can understand why they don't have that much support.

In this cyberpunk future we have so many resources available the problem is not that we don't know what to do with it but most people are not creative enough to use the tools this wonderful age has granted us! Any determined cyberpunk can turn a raspberry pi into a remotely accessable spying platform with functionality that would make Q's eyes like up like a kid on chrismas morning. Access to affordable miniturised high percision machining tools to make any type of weapon you can design or look up. Access to dark marketplaces for chemicals at Rock bottom price. This gives the advrage nightmare mode cyberpunk all the tools they would ever need to do anything… To fight back or go on the attack or live free in-between the cracks of the old world when the new world steam rolled over it.

If you actually look into the reported upon hate attacks, you can find that later investigation has resulted in findings that the supposed victims often created the attacks themselves, for attention, for money(patreon, donations, etc), and for exposure. Of course, as the old saying goes, A lie makes its way halfway around the world before the truth has even put its' pants on. And in true modern media fashion, there are no retractions issued, no apologies made, no admission of guilt. A thousand outlets report on the supposed hate crime and maybe twelve report on the eventual findings that it was all a hoax.

You're a fucking blind fool if you're too stupid to look into it and just believe it because MUH WACISS TWUMP NARWATIVE.

Cowards like you are the reason liberals are voting for conservative politicians in record numbers. "Question everything" turned into "Believe the victim". "Fuck the status quo" turned into "only if it's against ultra-progressivism".

I'm talking about real hate crimes - murders and terrorist attacks - not Jussie Smollet-type of "attacks". People like the guy who sent pipe bombs to Trump opponents.

And as I said, it's not just Trump. It's not like it was all nice and colorful until Trump came - the current political climate both in the US and in Europe was influenced by years of recession, bad politics, rising inequalities and open borders. The problem is that politicians that promised solutions (Trump, Orban, both May and Corbyn in the UK, etc.) are fucking terrible. Trump is extremely self-centered and in most cases it seems like he doesn't really know what he's doing and now he embraces some policies just to appease right-wing media that he listens to and watches. His tweets and statements really inspire some deranged lunatics to commit acts of violence.

Not a chance. There is no meaningful policy discussion at all going on. The vast majority are obsessed hyper-niche issues like gay marriage which involves less than 5% of people, abortion, gender identity, and racism. Both major political parties take absolutely non-sensical approaches issues.

< Government Funded Health care is bad b/c muh commmunism, the us will be venezuala.

< The government should stay out of peoples moral lives meanwhile Gay Marriage violates muh religious liberty (or brings hurricanes)

< Birth Control should be unavailable, meanwhile lets rapidly inflate the number of abortions people are getting to make abortion should like birth control because we just can't face the reality that people are going to have sex

< Refugees and Mexicans are the source of the problems in society!

< White people are all racist, and can't genueinely lead civil rights movements, but are "allies" who should "make space" and "listen" at best, and at worst, should actively be removed.

< No one can know how I have been victimized from whatever bizzare identity I have create, and I am entitled to special privilege because of that.

Republicans insist on going back to the 1950s "when America was Great" but rage about unions.

Structural Issues and cultural problems like the increasingly useless work force we have, the lack of education, obesity, the already wide gap between rich and poor, foreign policy questions about the emergence of new economic powers and their place in the world are not meaningfully discussed, and the winning presidential campaign was literally "build a wall between the US and Mexico to stop illict traffic, even though most illict traffic comes through ports of entry, and the cartels are famous for DIGGING MILES OF UNDERGROUND TUNNEL".

i have a feeling we are going to start pouring poweraid on the plants because they crave electrolytes soon.

Real climate change solutions focus on revitalizing infrastructure to increase efficiency and de-incentivize wasteful habits, not memes about "JUST MAKE ALL THE PLANES/CARS/BAD STUFF ILLEGAL111111"

From reading research over the last few decades, our problems are going to get much worse. it does not matter what your political beliefs are when people start coming in by the thousands because they have no more homes, jobs, or food and water. The environment cannot support 10-15 billion people sustainably, and industrialized food production only prolongs the inevitable collapse by allowing more people to be born into a world where people can't stop fucking. Clean drinking water and fish supplies (one of the largest food sources for people around the world) are going to go first, and then millions of climate migrants/refugees are going to flood and overwhelm the infrastructure of first world countries until everything falls apart. The best concrete estimates we have for climate wars to start range from 15-20 years from now.

Seconded, sadly. Never knew how much of a cuck Gibson is, especially obvious from his salty comment on President Reagan. I’d like to see him go on a similar tirade against Bill Clinton & Barack Obama. How much worse wasn’t it under their presidencies? The Orwellian surveillance and the recent political correctness going completely off the rails… That’s the stuff of Cyberpunk horror.

Are there any examples of good non-pozzed Cyberpunk? Outlaws struggling against a totalitarian gov’ment in a society where surveillance and political correctness are just as much a factor as corrupt politicians and censor-happy mega-corporations?

It's an inherently post-modernist genre, so you're shit out of luck.

Try looking into postcyberpunk though.

>but also more radical

It was bound to happen when even the most softy right wing guy gets tagged as a nazi. At some point they stopped giving a fuck and went all out

And it worked

>It's been discussed to death

Not really, the entire leftard spectrum is in a state of denial about magafags being the new counterculture

>>54644

No brouzouf, no actual support. Fatso just has "fuckyou brouzouf" meaning he can say whatever the fuck he wants. In the middle of gamergate he invited anita shekelsian to his mansion.

>We are 'The Man' now, and that's good!"

Thats what the term "sellout" is about but millenials and zoomerfags now dont even know what that means and even think the more sellout an artist is the better he must be because "look at all the logos in his concerts!"

Smh

>implying trump didnt 4D chess all those yokels into voting for him by pretending to care about them

Dude pulled the biggest scam ever, hats off for that.

>Robert Mercer

Dumb fuck fell for the trump scam, gave a hand to the brexit at best and he got fucked out of his company for that. Compare that to soros openly financing femen, antifa and the refugee ferry boats in europe, or the entire left giving brouzouf and support to the radicals on their side.

>Peter Thiel is more libertarian than alt-right

Exactly, he's also a gay immigrant so doubt he will be welcome with open arms.

>And I think it was Andressen (from a16z venture capitalist fund) who defended Milo Yiannopoluos on Twitter is generally anti-lefty.

>Alt-right public speakers are petty and childish so I can understand why they don't have that much support.

They are as much shit as the leftard ones, in fact they have to be to counter the shit flinging contest that media politics have become. The difference is that if I give one million to an alt-left rag like mother jones nobody cares, not negatively, will even give me clout within the cuckerati. But if I give a million to an alt-right rag like the daily stormer then my life is fucking over

Guerilla ecology idea, no idea of the feasibility, but…

Try setting up a device that manufactures hydroxyl radicals, and then sprays them into the air. Set it up so wind currents will usually waft your hydroxylizer’s output over landfill and farm spaces to help break down methane and other pollutants.

Do hydroxyl radicals contribute to cloud formation? If so, doing this might even reduce drought effects stemming from global warming. But getting more out of it than just making a local area stink less would require either that people build hydroxylizers en masse, or that the resources of a nationstate/megacorporation lined up behind the idea.

If cyberpunk is now, we need to move our street chemistry past street drugs and on into rebelling against a filthy society in danger of its own extinction.

I suspect anime might have stories you would enjoy. Some aspects of *Ergo Proxy* might intrigue you.

Ergo Proxy is a huge steaming pile of pretentious bullshit and teenage angst
