Gary Snyder's future from "Four Changes" 1969, a completely different point of view:
A technology of communication, education,
and quiet transportation,
sensitive to the properties of each region...
Careful but intensive agriculture
in the great alluvial valleys,
deserts left wild for those
who would live there by skill.
Computer technicians who run
the plant part of the year
along with the Elk
in their migrations
during the rest.
