Future Shock

Alvin Toffler
In all-time terms: Future Shock is about the present. Future Shock is about what is happening today to people who are overwhelmed by change. Change affects everything - if it was Covid-19, the electoral realities in the U.S. or urban decay like it occurred in Motown. Following that train of thought: Future Shock heavily influenced Detroit Techno. Listen to Lit Cities Radio and enjoy a private dance.
