Pseudonymous Futurology

Futurology as pseudo-science: Confusing science fiction with science practice, confusing faith-based initiatives with consensus science.

Futurology as pseudo-politics: Confusing consumer fandoms with stakeholder constituencies, confusing technocratic incumbency with democratic contestation.

Futurology as pseudo-philosophy: Confusing PR with analysis, confusing making bets with having thoughts.
