Quote of the Day | 0708

This “out of sight, out of mind” externalization of poverty and poison doesn’t go away just because we’ve covered our eyes with VR goggles and immersed ourselves in an alternate reality. If anything, the longer we ignore the social, economic, and environmental repercussions, the more of a problem they become. This, in turn, motivates even more withdrawal, more isolationism and apocalyptic fantasy–and more desperately concocted technologies and business plans. The cycle feeds itself.

Douglas Rushkoff, ‘Survival of the Richest’
