We’re now entering the endgame our six-part series Blueprint for a New World. So far we’ve traversed the mindscape of Psycho, Eco, Corpo, Techno, and now we’re off to the races with Politico … which is shaping up to be our most neuron bending geopolitical fissure of all time.

Ahhh, and don’t forget, at killcap.org, we’re hosting a global vote on the most hated criminal corporations in the world. Which one will you choose?
