China Dreaming “EXIT 13 or China and the World in 2030 and how we got there” recounts a utopian world where diversity of all sorts and the doctrines of the Great Establishing of Limits (GEL) and of “Slo-nomics” have become the strategies by which disaster has been avoided and a new human culture has been established. 
The second text “China's Spectacular-oneiric Society” is a more sober and analytical reflection on what has led us to where we are and the consciousness and measures necessary to save ourselves and the rest of the planet from imminent and irreversible catastrophe. 
Both texts start from the premise that the World without China is not the World, and that China without the World can no longer be China. 
Both texts draw on two neglected giants of radical French thought: Jacques Ellul and Cornelius Castoriadis; the shamelessly recuperated Guy Debord and, his one-time comrade-in-arms, Raoul Vaneigem are also essential references.”
