    falsely stuck in the economy of Need

    10 years after it came out and 3 years before the hypothetical fulfillment of Momus' prophecy:

    As societies evolve, people structure their lives less around what they need (food, heat, shelter) and more around what they want (a Sony Playstation, a holiday on Mustique, teledildonics). Women are slightly more stuck in the economy of Need because they still need men to support them while they're needed by the babies they bear. But in a world where humans are cloned and women earn as much money as men, that stops being true. Women will be singing this song by about 2010, I reckon.

    regarding this song

    Momus - I want you, but I don't need you

    I realise with dread that we are still far away from singing it. we should be singing it. i should. i will. i am.

    Φοβάμαι ότι χάνουμε μέσα σε αυτό που ευκαιριακά θέλουμε το άλλο που ουσιαστικά έχουμε ανάγκη, τη δεύτερη ζωή που έχουμε ανάγκη και ψάχνουμε πότε πότε δίχως θάρρος να τη βρούμε σε επίπλαστα θέλω της στιγμής.
