Future history ending in a eutopia. Considerable satire presented through a speech by a scholar in the far future. First vegetarians win the day; then Neo-Vegetarians, who won’t eat plants; then scientists create chemical food. A backlash against science occurs when Glasgow is destroyed during an experiment and then all science is regulated and begins to develop things that are useful. General decentralization occurs and people return to eating meat.
