Naomi Klein has reminded us that “No is not enough.” To save the planet from impending catastrophe, people need a positive vision of a better world and the roads leading to it. In other words, a credible picture of a possible Utopia and a plausible account of how to get there from here. But is “Another World” REALLY possible?
To answer that question, we Future Historians are performing a thought experiment: if there is even one chance in a hundred for a better world — we at least ought to be able to imagine it. So we place ourselves in the position of historians living in a peaceful, egalitarian, democratic society on a damaged, but stabilized, planet, in 2118. We cast our gaze back 100 years to 2018 and reconstruct HOW our great-grandparents got us from THEN — today’s capitalist death-spiral — to NOW: a sustainable, egalitarian global society, free of war, oppression and exploitation. For further information, see About Us. To begin, read To the Youth of 2118.
