What is the Sixth Phase of Civilization? Poet Larry Crist wrote this about Doubles in a Game of Chance: i like a lot about this Brave New World, 1984 futuristic nightmare. your style is so spare. no fat. bleak & scary, though i chortled a few places. (i am a tough laugh). i hi-lighted a couple passages on pg. 92 when Dalton is searching through files that i found v funny.
“After the Destruction of the Republic and the Waning of Government and the Collapse of the Bureau of Entitlement, a degenerate form of capitalism which amalgamated all corporations into a single ruling class whose sole purpose was its own enrichment, the logical development is the Sixth Phase of Civilization. In its early days, it will open the door to Utopia.”
