The Sayings of Kris the Bard – Dystopia

This isn’t the usual pithy saying of Kris’ that can be distilled into a 140 characters for Twitter, but I think it is very important, nonetheless.

We were recently discussing and comparing the events occurring in FirstWorld and in this world and agreed that The Balance is tipping. Chaos is taking over.

Kris made the following observation, which I think is quite profound.

“Dystopia is not a zombie rising, an alien invasion, or a nuclear war; rather it is an inexorable progression of tiny steps caused by the actions of ordinary people and the governments which represent them. We have no idea where we are heading, but one day we will wake up and wonder how we got here.”
