Half dystopia in a U. S. that is spreading around the world and half a eutopia set in Australia. The dystopia is brought about by the gradual takeover of the control of almost all work by computers, which results in a few extremely wealthy and the majority unemployed, on welfare and living in specially built buildings. The Australian eutopia is based on principles that “1. Everyone is equal 2. Everything is reused 3. Nothing is anonymous 4. Nothing is owned 5. Tell the truth 6. Do no harm. 7. Obey the rules. 7. Live your life. 9. Better and better” (Chapter 5, p. 8).
