The Twilight of Authority


Authority has made for a great show, but its present cycle is nearing completion, and once it is complete, the power structures that control our lives will be gone. Like it was at the end of the Soviet Union, people are behaving as if the system is eternal, but once it breaks, they’ll (honestly) be saying, “Yeah, I kind of knew.”



This issue examines precisely what authority is, how it works in groups of humans, and why it always crashes in the end.
