In Survival of the Richest, Rushkoff traces the origins of The Mindset in science and expertise by its present expression in missions to Mars, island bunkers, AI futurism, and the metaverse. In a dozen pressing, electrifying chapters, he confronts tech utopianism, the datafication of all human interplay, and the exploitation of that information by companies. By fascinating characters—grasp programmers who wish to remake the world from scratch as if redesigning a online game and bankers who return from Burning Man satisfied that incentivized capitalism is the answer to environmental disasters—Rushkoff explains why these with probably the most energy to vary our present trajectory have no real interest in doing so. And he exhibits how current types of anti-mainstream insurrection—QAnon, for instance, or meme shares—reinforce the identical damaging order. This mind-blowing work of social evaluation exhibits us find out how to transcend the panorama The Mindset created—a world alive with algorithms and intelligences actively rewarding our most egocentric tendencies—and rediscover neighborhood, mutual assist, and human interdependency. In a thundering conclusion, Survival of the Richest argues that the one method to survive the approaching disaster is to make sure it doesn’t occur within the first place.
