— summary —

The world is rapidly de-centralizing.

  • what if politics as we know it is about to end?
  • what if humanity soon organizes itself not in hierarchies, but in hive minds?
  • what if society’s mediating structures — education, media, and financial institutions — soon become completely transformed?

Welcome to the social singularity.

In this book, futurist Max Borders shows that humanity is already building systems that will “under-throw” great centers of power. Exploring the promise of a de-centralized world, he says civilization will:

  • re-organize to collaborate + compete with AI
  • operate within networks of superior collective intelligence
  • re-discover + embrace values that foster an age of connection

Borders takes the reader on a tour of: modern pagan festivals, cities of the future, and radically new ways to organize society. He examines trends likely to revolutionize the ways we live + work.

Although the technological singularity fast approaches, Borders explains that a parallel process of human re-organization will allow us to gain enormous benefits. The paradox: global citizens’ billion little acts of subversion will help us lead richer, healthier lives — and avoid a robot apocalypse.
