Mechanocracy by Miles J. Breuer:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

"What the future holds for us, nobody can tell definitely or surely, but some of those psychologists and scientists who let their imaginations roam into the possible, future see things—remarkable things—to which they react with much misgiving. Machinery that standardizes production may in some way extend itself too far in standardiizing life. It is a problem worth considering now—whether a muddling government that still permits initiative and self-reliance is not preferable to a perfectly standardized machine government. Dr. Breuer sees his side of the problem clearly and gives a most vivid picture of such a possible future." Select an invention:
