 In our weekly international online Future Historians seminars ​ we pretend that we're historians putting together a centennial history book for the teenagers of 2117.  We are constructing utopias, if you will, but we are also explaining how we got here (a peaceful, cooperative world society in 2117) from there (the catastrophes of 2017). We're a group from a wide variety of backgrounds,​ spread out from L.A. to Moscow, including a subway track worker, some students, a businessman,​ a few academics and various old radicals like me. Unlike so many Leftists, we don't argue or denounce each other, although we have many differing viewpoints. For this simple reason: viewed from 2117 we see the complimentarity of the different roads leading to the Emergence of the new society from the shell of the old (for example ‘reform’ and ‘revolution’).  ​ In our weekly international online Future Historians seminars ​ we pretend that we're historians putting together a centennial history book for the teenagers of 2117.  We are constructing utopias, if you will, but we are also explaining how we got here (a peaceful, cooperative world society in 2117) from there (the catastrophes of 2017).
