Archeofuturism

Quote
In his new theory of Archeofuturism, Faye proposes a “vitalist constructivism” that implements a quasi-feudal, national but not jingoistic, united Europe that applies the traditional spirit and learning to a future in which technology plays a central role. His unstated point is that the tool must again serve the man, after centuries of the reverse; he appeals to a sense of both the pragmatic in finding historically valid solutions through tradition, and the spirit of tradition, which is one of a constructive, upward society.

He proposes that we adopt this new outlook through a voluntaristic method, first changing our values, then our art, and then finally our political expectations at about the same time a “convergence of catastrophes” (environmental, political, economic) devastate Europe. Faye’s call is for Europeans to return to being “soldiers of the Idea” again, and for them to take up not a corrective action, but a constructive desire to rebuild and build it bigger, better and more exciting than before.

Getting past the Metalocalypse style one-dimensional stereotypes, a metal society would have the same principles as metal.

If you can imagine a technological version of medieval Europe, possibly with kingdoms separated by vast wastelands filled with mutants, that's the ideal setting.

As far as an adaptation to modern society goes, I think you'd see democracy go out the window and be replaced by a warrior aristocracy. There would be no warning tags on mattresses. Dope would be legal; in fact, almost everything would be, including the right to ride you out of town on your ass for smoking a joint. The hippie faction would not like this society, and it would enjoy exiling them to Eastern Europe like last time.

most metalheads i meet, are very young, and don't fully understand the REASONS as to why the world is the way it is.

and i think it's important to know this...because if you don't understand the intentions with which the people around you do what they do...then you won't be able to cause change, or have much influence on the modern world.

i think while it would certainly improve the world with some of the ideas and concepts which are important to metalheads, compatibility...or at least coming to some type of consensus with those who aren't, is vital in order to spread your own ideas, to cause the change you're seeking.

in other words: trying to create a, "metal" society is a impossibility, but that doesn't mean that you can't change it a bit towards your favor.

Metal is a temporary manifestation of a type of thought process; dissidence. But it's inherently romanticist. In the past there was no need for metal as classical and traditional music were still relevant, in the future this will also be the case. Metal will dissappear when it's goal is achieved hence a "metal society" would be an impossibility.

Please don't say that, it is possible...

That's how it seems to me also. A metal society would be any society that upheld the vision of ancient Rome or (even better) ancient Greece, including young boys for Profanatica to sodomize.
