The Reluctant Visionary

Nanotechnology-driven manufacturing will change our world in fundamental ways—but we shouldn’t get too worked up about it

NOVEMBER 27, 2013 by PHIL BOWERMASTER

Advances in fields not explicitly related to nanotech have us poised on the verge of a fourth revolution that could be every bit as disruptive as the agricultural, industrial, and digital ones--but on a far vaster scale. Just ignore the hype (and the backlash it has created).

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back.

The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
