The eighth year of the Radium Age
By: Valery Bryusov
They resembled wild animals in their ferocity.
Year five of sf’s Radium Age.
Anarchy reached its last limits.
There commenced a dreadful orgy of the despairing.
The sense of property vanished.
Some simulated madness in order to escape punishment.
They fled in fright to the outskirts of the town.
Everyone fled who could.
Life was standardised even to the most minute details.
The number of working hours in the day were small in the extreme.
