Saudi Arabia has unveiled visuals of its dystopian plan to build a 170 kilometer-long linear, one-building “green” city called The Line. The anti-human monstrosity is supposedly designed to sustainably meet the living needs of 9 million people. In real life, intensive surveillance and the completely unnatural nature of the whole project would make it a Big Brother nightmare, just one power cut away from mass death.
Thr megastructure, which looks like a line stretching across the desert from an aerial view, is billed as a way to “consolidate” the carbon footprint of a traditional city. By running entirely on renewable energy, and confining city transportation to a high-speed rail, the city would boast zero carbon emissions once operative.
Residential, commercial and leisure areas as well as schools would all be included in the futuristic city, consisting of two-skyscraper, 500-meter-high wall-like structures with mirror facades that will enclose an open area.
Residents would be able to travel from end to end of the 105.6 mile-long city in 20 minutes, and would “have access to all their daily needs within five-minute walk neighborhoods.
The city wouldbe located in the northwest of the Gulf country, and according to renderings, will “run into the Red Sea,” where an extension of its structure will serve as a port for ships.
Commentators have slammed the project as “dystopian,” and one described it as a “blatant greenwashing PR exercise by the heads of this rotten regime,” adding that “it’s an attempted distracting cop-out” since “Saudi Arabia is still at the very bottom for human rights.
Tech blog Engadget has raised concerns that The Line “is expected to be loaded with countless sensors, cameras, and facial recognition technology, that in such a confined space could push government surveillance to almost unthinkable levels.”
If the thing is built, there is no doubt that various globalist agencies would hold it up as a model for us all. But there is serious doubt that the sci-fi-style project will ever be completed. Various recent failed “super-projects” that serve as cautionary tales, such as the $38 billion planned Nakheel Harbour and Tower development in next-door Dubai, which was axed six years after its proposal.
