Yuri original meme:
Comrades: Welcome to The Line!
Modern day NYC and SF are demoralized Karenland FUPAZ, but even though they are shitholes you still have some semblance of privacy and freedom. Technocrat tyrants are embracing dystopian “smart 15-minute cities” that allow them to control their subjects with ease. Many people will live like this in 2043, some willingly and others dragged kicking and screeming. I will translate the sleek marketing of Saudi Arabia’s Line city into Yuri demoralization speak. For additional background, check out How To Predict the Future Part 1 and Part 2.
For too long, humanity has existed within dysfunctional and polluted cities that ignore nature. Now a revolution in civilization is taking place. Imagine a traditional city and consolidating its footprint, designing to protect and enhance nature. The Line will be home to 9 million residents and will be built with a footprint of just 34 square kilometers. And we are designing it to provide a healthier, more sustainable quality of life.
Dear Citizen - consolidate your footprint! We are designing your home to provide a less free, fully surveilled life. You will own nothing and be happy!
The Line’s communities are organized in 3 dimensions. Residents have access to all their daily needs within 5 minute walk neighborhoods. And the Line’s infrastructure makes it possible to travel end to end in 20 minutes with no need for cars, resulting in zero carbon emissions.
Prisons are designed in the same way to prevent escape. All that’s missing are the machine gun turrets and barbed wire. If you disobey, your carbon emissions will be permanently reduced to zero.
By leveraging AI technology, surfaces are autonomous, saving you time and effort. Designed by world leading architects, The Line is 500 meters tall, 200 meters wide, 170 kilometers long, and housed within an elegant mirror glass facade. Intelligent solutions create efficiency and year-round temperate microclimate with natural ventilation. Energy and water supplies are 100% renewable.
If your ESG score is not high enough, you will not be able to move or pay for anything. At least it won’t be too hot!
The Line is designed as a series of unique communities offering a wealth of amenities, providing equitable views and immediate access to the surrounding nature, with 40% with of the world accessible within 6 hours at the heart of the globe’s key trade routes. A place for commerce and communities to thrive like nothing on earth seen before. The Line - the city that delivers new wonders for the world.
Enjoy going insane watching the empty desert from your pod. A place for tyranny and fascism to thrive like nothing on earth seen before. The Line - a city that delivers new horrors for the world.
Now if you excuse me, I have a date with my AI girlfriend:
Will we even make it to 2043?
YouTube thrust this demoralized ad on me, so now you have to see it too. Canada’s tourism ambassador is on brand - a cringey fat androgynous bug Karen:
