Transcription of the audio:
“Suppose there’s a superpower at our fingertips, but we fail to ever utilize it? This superpower can literally predict the future, with probabilities. Now suppose our society fails because we never utilize this superpower. Yet it was there all along. What would our legacy be?
“What is the superpower? Well what’s the best way to predict the future, now? Look to the past. Because there are cross-cultural universalities among all humans in every civilization. We should study these cross-cultural universalities as if they were our own psyche, or genetic code. Because that is when tendencies arise. We can have this information and foresee decline. Or even precipitate rise. I can promise you that cultures in the future will utilize this superpower. I hope in order to protect Democracy. Because Democracy must be the future. Democracy must be saved.
“I’m scared for Democracy right now. I’m scared, so I decided to write a horror. I’m scared of mob violence, I’m scared of rhetoric. I’m scared of the righteous responses to mob violence and rhetoric. So, I present to you Democracy Jones, or, Adventures in End Phase Western Democracy.”
