There's this weird thing I'm trying to work out for an article. Bookchin invokes a concept of "futurism" where the present situation is extrapolated and made "bigger", with complete disregard to how that would work. It is assumed people suffer accordingly.
There's this sort of reverse futurism, I think, where the present situation is made "smaller", but the present does not allow for much to be done with small things. People, again, suffer accordingly, as they don't achieve "more with less."

If capitalism is mindless growth, this is mindless degrowth? I dunno. Is there another name for it?
