Annotation

Eutopia. A future extremely polluted earth and a simple, individualistic, ecologically oriented culture surviving under a plastic dome. Each person is responsible for feeding themselves and building their own housing (a small hut). Community buildings (one each for the children and the old and one community building) are built by individuals not working in concert. The old, the children, and the fire are cared for by the adults in rotation. Cooperation exists in the form of “gifting”. The society is presented through the eyes of a man from a very advanced technological society, which he returns to in 1973 Farca.
