The Law of Accelerating Returns states that technology in the coming century will be so “rapid and profound it represents a rupture in the fabric of human history.” On one side will stand those who welcome radical advancement in technology, versus those on the other side who attempt to subvert and destroy it. These are the Blockers - rogue extremists who create spectacles of worst-case-scenario science to spur the masses to action. Rule #7 of KillJoy’s Manifesto: A Blocker does not operate underground. He participates in a group. He is mainstream. All things anathema to him, he must embrace and make central to his life. Inspired by Ray Kurzweil’s 'Law of Accelerating Returns', Bill Joy’s 'Why the Future Doesn’t Need Us', and Hugo de Garis’ 'The Coming Artilect War'.
