if cyberpunk is a dystopic future with low life + high tech, solarpunk is a optimist outlook on the future, with susteinable and ecofriendly tech in a post-capitalist world

>>7711295
late to the party, but we are already verging on the dystopian futures we were warned about in entertainment media for decades.

Our resource use per person is growing seemingly exponentially. We are going to reach a point where solar is going to be our only actual source of reliable energy to feed the needs. Unless we as people entirely change the way we handle things, we are going to need to make dyson swarms, or rings to funnel energy directly to earth in a more usable format from the sun.

I personally think that greed and power, will prevail and we will never get to a "post scarcity" utopia like star trek. the reality to me thats more likely is we will just sort of merge solarpunk, and our current cyberpunk, into our own real dystopian deal.

I prefer the highly idealized 1950/1960 future world that solarpunk art seems based on....And its always been my dream since a kid to live in that world we were promised...but I just dont see that happening.

I mean, a cyberpunk world would probably be a post-scarcity one, with abundant things for everyone there would be no need for economic calculus
>>
>>7719838
No, cyberpunk is hyper-urban, hyper-orwellian, hyper-capitalist and hyper-scarcity. Cyberpunk settings are dystopias with corruption, computers and internet connectivity. Giant, multinational corporations have for the most part replaced governments as centers of political, economic, and even military power.

Energy won't be a trouble, because the lack of many other resources (due to overpopulation) will kills us long time before that.
>>
>>7708527
To me, solarpunk seems less like 'post-capitalist post-scarcity' and more like 'small population, almost every citizen is their own producer, scarcity still exists but there's just not enough people to take up ALL of the resouces'
so, in essence, a society where almost everyone is an ethical millionaire/billionaire
>>
>>7719950
>hyper-orwellian
Isn't one of the mainstays of Cyberpunk an extreme lack of safety and constant crime out of select havens reserved for the rich? How can that exist in a system with strong surveillance, punishment, and societal control?

You really got no clue, facism, libertarianism and also anarchism was always favouring big industry. Always promoted polluting. Extremist ideologies did never care about nature at all.

Mind control and supression is quintessential cyberpunk and quintessential facism.

>>7732772
You're a retard : Fascism promote industrialization for the independence/need of the nation/group.

Communism promoted big industry for the good of the soviet republic.

both could have ecological measure (preservation of naturel space and biodiversity, promotion of green living environment) but when it came to real politics, all regime where pretty much the same.
>>
>>7732773
In soviet-style "communist" regimes the state behaves like an evil mega corporation. This is definitely not good for people and nature. I know what I am talking about, I was born in eastern Europe. Solarpunk society should be more like a green social democracy.
>>
>>7732882
also, no one promote polluting.
>>
>>7732883
This. Fucking dictatorship and "planned economy" model - as if any government organ ever really knew what the future demand for anything would look like, let alone on a five year timeline. "Oh no, we don't need more physicists right now. You've been enrolled for becoming a chemistry teacher instead, thank us later". Fucking what mate. "We've calculated / guessed / lol a demand of only 5000 cars for the next three months, so that's exactly how many we'll produce. If more demand comes in, we'll just put people on the waiting list. What do you mean, there already is a list stretching back the last six years and we haven't caught up to that yet? Can't be, the news report was adamant that the numbers matched, so that's the reality we're going with for now."

Fucking messed up "communist states", I'm not a big fan of the general communism idea in the first place but those states really dragged the name through the dirt by perverting it with sheer idiocy.

> You could help direct the world, on its careening trajectory, a bit more toward heaven and a bit more away from Hell. Once having understood Hell, researched it, so to speak–particularly your own individual Hell–you could decide against going there or creating that. You could aim elsewhere. You could, in fact, devote your life to this. That would give you a Meaning, with a capital M.
