Flawed utopia. A future eutopia maintained by dystopian conditioning. Cities have become radically decentralized and groups of houses connected to make small communities. James Joyce (1882-1941) is worshiped by some and is an honored icon for others. Terminal refers to a computer terminal and terminal cancer refers to those who spend all their time in front of their terminals.
