In the late 1990’s, Swedish social theorists Alexander Bard and Jan Söderqvist started working on a radical new theory, since referred to as The Netocracy Hypothesis. Mr. Bard held a series of lectures at the Stockholm School of Economics, while Mr Söderqvist wrote a number of extensive magazine articles on related subjects. After joining forces, they argued that the interactive revolution is the most profound and radical of all technological revolutions in history, and that it completely transforms society, politics, the economy and the culture, social power structures, the collective worldview, and the whole concept of being human. They demonstrated the effects of digital dynamics on various levels of a globalized world.
At this early stage, Bard and Söderqvist foresaw that the control of the Internet would be the subject of the main power struggle for the next century; an outright war between a brand new rising elite (the netocracy) and an established but rapidly declining elite (the bourgeoisie).
They not only made predictions against the tide in the early years of the new millennium (and cleverly foresaw both the dot-com crash and September 11), they have since been proven right in virtually every aspect, and even in the most minute of details. Not only did Bard and Söderqvist foresee revolutionary innovations such as Google, Facebook, Al-Qaida, and Wikileaks, they also went deeper, and looked beyond where any other observer has been or managed to go, into the very power struggle of the on-going revolution.
Now, for the first time, Bard and Söderqvist’s groundbreaking works are available as one compact set, under the title,The Futurica Trilogy, including:
The Netocrats – Detailing how the Internet creates a new global upper-class that fights and destroys the old, struggling, power structure.
The Global Empire – Dealing with the worldview of the Netocrats and how it radically differs from any previous ideology in history
The Body Machines – Presenting the idea of what it means to be human in an interactive world, which radically differs from any previous concept of human existence.
Join the steady growing number of readers around the world who follow Bard and Söderqvist, and perhaps emerge as a netocrat yourself!
