Adversalife is a reworking of the pastoral visions painted by supporters of patchwork, neocameralism and cryptographic decentralization. Rather than lizard brain-pleasing illusions of total security and control it provides a view into a world full of assassination markets, violence, unscrupulous corporations and political opportunism. While patchwork is most definitely a new global operating system, it is also the operating system of a global civil war. Windows Vista Earth.
