40. Our 21st century world turned out to be much more *Brazil* than *1984*



Chaos and Mother Nature always win.

Orwell's 1984 is an excellent warning, but not a sustainable society.

From this *Brazil* place we can follow our best dreams. Or our society can simply collapse into a darkness worse than George Orwell ever imagined, just plain old ordinary stinking bodily fluids, maggots and flies animal extinction, our human civilization becoming a peculiar layer of trash in the geologic record.

Maybe earth's next dominant intelligent species won't screw up.

Or maybe, just maybe, we can keep the lights on.
