2284 World Society

Iaian Vernier's Memoir

Seymour W. Itzkoff

2284: World Society, Iaian Vernier’s Memoir is a fascinating study of mankind. Written as a work of fiction, it looks at the human condition 200 years in the future. Predicting the outcome of today’s social policies, 2284 is a cultural anthropology study that adds to Itzkoff’s extensive writing on the topic. Iaian Vernier writes in 2284 of the revolutionary internationalism that has been established in Nairobi, Africa. He chronicles the disasters that almost destroyed the twenty-first-century world. He describes in anecdote and philosophical depth the new scientific and secular world that has been established to bring peace, equality, ethnic diversity and democracy to humanity, while scrutinizing the plans for demographic stability that will sustain humanity into the future. In the twenty-third century, the forbidden rationality of the scientific minds of the twenty-first century have been unleashed.

Introductory Biographical Note


Iaian Vernier was born in 2204 in what was once called Belgium. His parents were of international heritage and worked in various civil service positions in Europe, Africa and in South America. His studies in Louvain, Wallonia; Cambridge, England; and Heidelberg, Germany were in political theory and philosophy, with a mathematical and legal sub-specialization. Early on, he joined the Secretariat of the World Society shortly after its move to Africa and rose up in its ranks and responsibilities as a very prescient and tough evaluator of plans and process.

Iaian Vernier died in 2294, about one hundred years ago. His final retirement from the World Society Secretariat took place in 2282. His normal retirement at age 70 occurred in 2274. But, because of a serious dispute between medical scientists in Johannesburg, Transvaal Nationality and Nanjing, East Yangtze Nationality, which had enormous potential for increasing human health and life span involving autoimmune therapies, he was called back to service to help adjudicate the dispute for presentation to the Congress. Each of the contesting national entities if confirmed would have been open to special dispensations in population and productivity increases for their achievements. The issue was peacefully resolved, as we all know, and the world is the beneficiary. After four years of additional service on other matters of international concern, Dr. Vernier resumed his well-earned retirement.
