We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Got a few minutes? Read this bit of futuristic -topian prose (either dys- or u-, depending on your point of view) by Bruce Sterling. ---Told from the point of view of a capitalist stooge imprisoned after an environmental collapse followed by a socialist revolution, it's the scary future that radical, Mike Lee-type right-wingers should be envisioning.

Spoiler alert: The open-source, collaborative, tech-savvy hippies win; and the selfish, crazy, hateful bastards lose.

Personally, I think I'd be rather fond of the "night-soil buckets and vegetarian okra casseroles" lifestyle.
