The Internet Is Acid, and America Is Having a Bad Trip

quote [ We were coming to grips with the fact that we were living in a “consensual hallucination,” as science fiction writer William Gibson put it, where the things we imagine actually come into being. It seemed as if the world was about to become a whole lot more like a lucid dream, where the future was less a place we arrived at than a thing we created together. We were moving into what I called a “designer reality.” ]

New piece from Douglas Rushkoff. He has an odd perspective sometimes, but it's often thought-provoking.

It sounds a bit like a toned down The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch.
