Memory of Earth. The road to utopia

When a man by the end destroys the home planet, perhaps somewhere he is able to create new and better world. A world where people will overcome the space in a few hours in order to throw off a bomb that kills thousands other people. A world where technological advances will serve the development of culture and art, not including branches of science, the effects of which can be used to inflict death. Perhaps he will be able to create a world in which physical strength of men will not serve the cause of social domination. Perhaps he can even create your own god, who will guard the frontiers of human knowledge, never in human history did not repeat the story of total destruction.

But even such people actually furnished anything will be different from their ancestors who had the opportunity to call yet Earthlings?

Like Orson Scott Card. A bit of tale (usually), some things to think about, and very skillfully conducted and interesting narration of the story is definitely a good combination. In this respect, Card is a brand, there are no disappointments. In Memory of Earth , which is the first volume are Agi Back home, the world is made of Harmony, in which 40 million years since they live people after they destroyed and left the Earth. To prevent a repetition of the tragedy, the first refugees have created a giant computer, which was to store the achievements of their mind, and so direct their thoughts to move all those dangerously close kierowałyby toward inventions related to the work of destruction. This computer - Oversoul (originally Oversoul ) - was designed for 20 million years. After this time, humanity is on schedule with the help of Oversoul had better return, transformed to its home planet. It took, however, twice as much time, and people do not become to others.

Harmony depicted in the novel Carda, in some sense realized utopia. People live according to the immutable rules, which have conditioned the public peace and stability. Leaving the city or returning to it is recorded through biometrics. On the Harmony of there marriage, couples sign contracts to be temporary, but can easily be extended. Women and men do not keep the household together, live apart. Boys of a certain age living in his mother's home, where he charge science, and then move to her father. When you grow up, parents are them "aunty", ie trained prostitute who brings them into the secrets of sensual delights. P about the city or in its vicinity wander naked women, facing the religious vision dzikuski, known as sacred, that may lawfully be sexually abused, and simply raped. Traditionally relations between residents and residents of depends on their social status, but primarily on gender.

At Harmony we look from the perspective of a teenage Nafaia to be wybrankiem Oversoul. Gradually we learn the reality in which the boy lives. Harmony is a world run by women. A man who has not signed a contract with a suitably important citizen or who is the son of major-in women, little can be achieved: not even the right to purchase the property. It is fair sex but have a decisive voice in the matter of the contract. This particular item women in the society described is related to the dominant religion in Harmony: generally only one - by taking part in the ritual bath in the holy lake come into regular contact with the deity - Oversoul. Oversoul however, become increasingly weaker, and therefore weaken the principle upon which the social structure in the city. May soon start a new massacre, re-quest for annihilation. Harmony Residents sometimes wonder about the existence of his deity, but even if you doubt concerning, it is not accepted to speak out. The cult of men and women differ, although both sexes believe in the Oversoul. Interestingly, as men and women give the impression that they are not aware that it is a product of a mind of their ancestors.

world depicted in Memorial Earth is an interesting combination of many typical fantasy elements, including utopian themes, travel, star, and the theme of taking control of body and mind by another, higher being. How do u Card, one needs to ask when reading a few questions. Is the government putting anything on them may actually contribute to jakiekokolwiek good, or maybe when the game comes a choice: kill the body, usually to save, just about alleged welfare? If this man created a god, not necessarily in his own image and likeness and although that it not be named, why allow this, that the god so easy to take over control of it?

And so I passed by the thought that maybe this computer depicted in the novel quasi-god of Harmony is only a tool of god correct? Because maybe it is It is a mythical guardian of the Earth, waiting patiently for the prodigal humanity in paradise from which man emerged at the beginning?

decent piece of prose. I recommend.

Meeting Incentives Panoptikum "dys (u)

March 17, 2011 (Thursday) the chair. 15:30 held a promotional meeting the latest issue of the journal Panoptikum. This time has been devoted to dystopia. Promotional meetings combined with a panel discussion involving a number of authors. It will take an important hives 1.43
Faculty of Philology, University of Gdansk (St Veit Stoss 55 in Gdansk). The meeting will be: mgr Grażyna Świętochowska (Chief Editor), Dr. Monika Bokiniec (scientific editor). The guests are: prof. dr hab. George Szyłak (UG), Dr. Chris Kornacki (UG), Dr. James Sebastian Konefał (UG), Dr. Paul Sitkiewicz (UG), Chris Lipowski (writer). Admission is free.

"Panoptikum" is a young nation-wide audio-visual magazine for enthusiasts and talented film and art critics who are looking for an area of \u200b\u200bpublishing.

starting point for the new issue of "Panoptikum" The concept was not a utopia, but in the face of the proliferation of kin: dystopia, atopy, or heterotopia ekotopii project seems logical presentation of the topography, the implications of the process of language shift, statements, counter-proposals. Starting from the core of a "space", each of the newly neutralizes or reverses the relationship with the other, while negotiating their relationship with time and space, so that - eventually - to acquire the status of conflicting or niemiejsc. We are dealing with a break with the traditional time, opening up the layers of time, its liquidity, or accumulation.

Utopia has always flourished in times of great crises, violent social, political and cultural. Coincidence that the greatest flowering of utopia as a literary form for the period of the Renaissance, when the old order no longer functioned, and the new has not yet emerged: the project required and it is the task was to meet utopia - next to the satire, by definition, most probably involved socially and politically species. The new world requires a new society, a new society - a new citizen: this is a simple way to utopia.

is no coincidence that the twentieth century dystopian realm: disillusionment with human nature, the impossibility of revolution or the monstrosity of its embodiment. Although each of utopia, from Plato onwards, wants justice, fairness, this does not necessarily mean egalitarianism, and sometimes on the contrary, can only be done at the cost of isolation and exclusion, social and geographical. In this sense, each utopia already contains a potential dystopijny.

Insert Image Into Autocad 2010

Little Brother Cory Doctorow starts badly. The fact that a group of kids grabs the devil knows why the metro area after the terrorist attack in San Francisco and its prison by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security would not cause fear or anger at a bad legitimate power, and irritation to the workshop of the author. Definitely it was necessary to attempt to refine the initial batch of novels such details, so that the reader would clear that the nasty ultraamerykańscy DBW officers can really be convinced that a terrorist attack is the average seventeen. And yes, smells a bit cheap to me kafkowością: "if the system will draw on your feet, after you, a little." Kind of catchy, but not at all passed the test performed. Besides started my reading with the hope of an intertextual relish as batting an eye toward Orwell's also a certain level of detail: But beyond the discussion in a controlled and kept under surveillance society, and novel way of referring explicitly to Year 1984 nickname, which initially uses the hero (oh, he could play it differently Doctorow and leave by the end of Marcus w1n5t0nem), there was too many of the elements of the world famous Orwell novel - and certainly nothing of the rebel terror units conversion for love to Big Brother.

not necessarily a serious objection right away, of course, although it is difficult to require that the lover has not sought dystopijnych worlds in the novel traces Orwellowskich headed this way and not otherwise. I will not however, fall into the extreme and say right away that the longer one reads, this is better. And even - much better. Although it must be borne in mind that Little Brother is de facto rather detective story for young people, and not prophetic dystopia. I read with this approach, this book is pretty nice. It seems to me that this attitude may also be useful to others: especially those who have the twenty-fifth birthday already.

The story begins at school. This institution is a pretty good symbol of a world in which the hero lives with his family and friends. Marcus School is a building guarded by cameras. Since the automatic face recognition has been recognized as unconstitutional, these cameras include gait detectors. "As far as I know, no court has yet determined whether the gait-recognition cameras are more judicious [than recognizing faces], but as long as this does not resolve, we are no flaws" - conclusion: Marcus. To get out of the building unnoticed, it must trick the ubiquitous, but they definitely dumb (Anything that
not written on the package) device, pouring gravel to the shoes. With gravel in the shoes can not be run in a standard way.

In this school, this is fiction - as well as many ordinary, non-literary, which the authorities urgently seek to achieve a miraculous act of surveillance without ever having to strain and to implement the process (never declaratively, of course) unification controlled - promotes a conformist behavior, and, unless niewychodzące never out of fashion, informing. There are websites where the friendly colleagues and casual passers-by can post photographs of truants encountered, and any action taken by pupils in the school PCs is readily monitored by teachers. Obviously, handling blockages and brings the school to remain anonymous to the god of gods, the venerable director of Benson, to rage.

Cory Doctorow in a story about teenagers, where the passion and faith in freedom to manage to escape from the power of the seemingly omnipotent DBW unobtrusively presents a whole host of problems facing society today in many countries. The modern world is built in a certain sense no longer the fear of terrorism as such, but for fear of what is different and strange: no accident that the vast majority of detainees by the DBW in Little Brother is color. The novel forces, probably for many of us, once again, to reflect on this, as far as the desire for security may justify restricting human freedom and the seizure of the private sphere. The Little Brother were presented real dangers, real fears. The author vividly showed the world in which people are increasingly using technological achievements against other people in theory "for their own good. " Limiting the possibility of cash payments, monitoring the scale of the total, including tracking of individuals through their cards to the subway, the widespread acquisition of biometric data, a total lack of awareness of anonymity on the web is not just novel issues. Well a little bit more details CONCERNING these and similar problems to later INDECT not specify the-u (intelligent information system to support surveillance, search and detection for the safety of citizens in urban areas), if, and only as curiosities. Popularization of this type of information This is a great advantage of the novel, that can never be too much. And so completely on the margins of excess again that the name of the operating system invented for the Little Brother , ParanoidLinux, sounds przeuroczo.

Despite imperfections fiction novels have mentioned, the stress and deep bow to the author deserves the ability to juggle a very slim wide range of subjects. And so: in addition to technological themes accented everywhere in Little Brother discussed related issues are widely understood counter-culture, such as:
characteristics yippisów, anarchism, feminism, freeganizm. Refers to the famous year 1968, there are quotes from Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac. And besides all this, nor boring, nor is poured sauce on the strength of didacticism.

Apparently nothing surprising in the fact that the sensational novel for young seventeen must save the world, who knows. Unfortunately, the kid who fought in the network with the government of his empire, smacks to me a bit Card and Ender's siblings conquering power of the Internet, which is the story always makes me a bit rozczulała kind of naive - though perhaps in an era in which millions of voluntarily give up possession of the kindness of our reigning Mr. Zuckerberg (born 1984), it should not. I seriously offended some kind of simplifying the problem of polarization. We, the citizens and their government-are portrayed as totally separate worlds. Interestingly, this second world is not only omnipotent DBW, but even the director of the school. And that's a major simplification, even for the fictional reality: that the world powlekła mesh from a wide variety of tools for surveillance, people must accept it.

on video surveillance in schools (these very real) agrees teachers' council. Parents did not object to the provincial school children belonged to the building for the production of relevant ID with a barcode (when adult strangers - believe me I do not want that legitymowanych - lets you Woźna). Supplemental Monitoring is becoming one of the local mayor's election promises. We are not so distant from the world of Doctorow's novels, as surely we would like. Marcus says: "Benson, along with other school administrators paranoicznymi released (...), money spent on our books for those idiotic camera." In our world, money that could be used many meaningful projects, it seems idiotic to other cameras.

Proponents of government action (which it very simply for their own use may be called "camera enthusiasts") presented in the novel express such cliches starting formulaic, predictable issues, it is difficult to treat them as people who have their own views. I sincerely hope it's imperfections, however, Doctorow's writing and in creating a schematic, not a sad representation of reality. Oh, how not to treat even the protagonist's father as a dummy or a total idiot, when he says: "I do not Time to rip a lawyer and talk about the Charter of Rights. The time has come where we all need a little give, so the city could still be safe "in the context of chaotic, aimless police raids. A little scary, however, is the vision that such views, in fact,
may dominate the mainstream. And given the lack of high-profile debate beyond the third sector to the issues of security and privacy, far from it can not be ruled out.

And so at the end, I think the punch line of one of the last texts Zaczyńskiego Michael, my favorite columnist for Newsweek. In a short scrap headed Modern teenagers distances himself from the popular criticism of the position of young people and wonders what today's young have to offer people in their thirties. Do you want it to be such lifestyle of the well-known social psychologist author (sic), who lives in a "closed for three barriers to protect and porter plus neighborhood Słoneczkowa Valley" and niepytany - as if to convince himself - tells how he was there, right? Deity, which is safety, not satisfied with, apparently, partial victims. You have to sacrifice from all spheres of his life, and even that probably too few.

"Christ, we really do it yourself" - writes Zaczyński. Yes, this is the core: this is not some they we ourselves do it yourself. Agreeing. Not being interested. Silence. The young (and less young) readers Cory Doctorow - to learn from reading anything more than a sense of danger and / or spent time today - they should have the fully aware.

Recipe For Snicker Doodle Salad

Utopia / dystopia marriage of PDF-I

Szlajając after the network, instead of doing something useful (just nawypożyczałam whole pile of books to make up for serious deficiencies in my university-educated Polish Studies, but must probably wait until I choose somewhere in the train journey: who knows, maybe fate smiles on me, and the winds associated with the successful traction stolen, damaged the locomotive, too late - because the winter or summer because - and the compulsory stop at the train station somewhere in Wielkopolska, Malopolska and Upper and Lower Silesia, the two have time to read), I came across a really good side. In English, of course, and therefore a bit sad: too bad that there is no chance that anything like as long as found in Polish (poor Wojciech Zdarzyńskego MD Krajewski barely localized in the network, because the Polish Internet Library grounds inconceivable to me decided to deprive the author of two first names, leaving only the third).

page referred to, it . Its creators distribute e-books. Much of it is - what is important - for free download from the network: either the text should be in the public domain, or the content has been published under the Creative Commons license. For obvious reasons, the most interested in my category utopia / dystopia , to which reference has already hanging on the blog and to which linkowałam on FB.

In the category of utopian and dystopian have been posted on the items, some of which is a classic genre, in Poland, information about them - apart from the Internet - can be obtained only in the textbooks of literature of the period, or simply in the wider literature in question. Post for me is particularly interesting that some of these books has never been translated into Polish (or was very long ago), and thus it is virtually unavailable in our libraries. Obviously does not apply to all items in this category. Some of them that's contemporary novels (which has now launched in Poland Little Brother Cory Doctorow ) and others have for years been known to Polish readers: Iron rate such as Jack London is digitized in the OSP and Trial by Franz Kafka anyone yet needs no introduction.

Below I put a few words on some rather major titles, with whom I have a special desire to get to know.

Looking Backward: 2000-1887 - Edward Bellamy (1888)
News from Nowhere - William Morris (1890)
Popular utopias of the turn of the century. William Morris alluded to earlier works of Edward Bellamy. News nowhere to be translated into Polish in 1902, so maybe there is a chance that somewhere in the translation on the website will soon have digital libraries.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman, 1895
Herland - Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1915)
Herand is called the first utopia feminist. The author, working at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth century Charlotte Perkins Gilman, was an American sociologist, poet and writer. Her works have great influence on the shaping of contemporary feminist thought. In doing so, raise the subject of gender roles in a patriarchal society. Herland is a novel about a society consisting entirely of women. In our ideal world, there is no war and domination. Women in a world without men, multiply by partenogenezie. Narrated Herland is a young sociology student, who with two friends out on a journey which will culminate in a woman's knowledge of the utopian land. For details, refer to the English story Wiki or to the original.

A Modern Utopia - HG Wells (1905)
Herbert George Wells in A Modern Utopia as in other writings of this period presented a utopian vision of society to which the creation was to help develop civilization. A Modern Utopia a species intermediate between the novel (fiction) and the Treaty of philosophy. Wells in this book calls for certain social reforms, further extends the idea of \u200b\u200ba state of the world (this motif can be found later in Huxley, among others).

Metropolis - Thea von Harbou (1926)
Thea von Harbou was a German novelist, screenwriter, theater actress, a director of two films. Metropolis is a novel about a utopian vision, anticipation. As he tells me the French Wikipedia, the novel This had a strong influence of German Expressionism, which is evident in the creation of forms, metaphors, style. Based on the book was written for the film, directed by Fritz Lang with the same title. The film was completed in 1927
