Welcome to IC Beyond! Ever wonder what the world would look like in a decade or two, or five? You know what they say: "Change is the only constant!" Tell us about your vision of the future!
We are a futurism-themed society, aimed at serious discussion about the change and evolution of global society.
Here's a list of potential topics we've covered / might cover throughout the year:
- Technological unemployment (Help, the robots are taking over!)
- Inequality and its effects (Can poor people be blamed for being poor?)
- Universal basic income (Basic needs for everyone!)
- Abundance and post-scarcity (We don't need to fight over resources!)
- A systems approach to sustainability (All our problems are interconnected!)
- Steady state economy (Perpetual growth only makes you fat!)
- Transhumanism (What does it really mean to be human?)
- Radical solutions to societal problems? (Moving past the "-ism"s!)
