I actually tap into the terror of late stage capitalism in my upcoming novel, The Internet President: None of the Above.
The problem is capitalism isn’t broken enough yet. We need a bigger crisis to light the fire that will bring about real change. Until then, it will be bread and circuses to distract us. A resource based economy is really the way to go.
I also have an idea for a new political party using the Internet to replace the existing parties using the powers of personalization and technology. I’ll pursue that after I finish my novel.
