Collapse Daily May 30 2018

I am a SF nerd. The first published SF newsprint story was in the 1880s? about an automatic steam operated metal humanoid, the cover had a pen and ink picture of it pulling an old pioneer wagon. Star Trek communicators came from Dick Tracy video wrist watches. I read a trashy NYT novel about global warming in 1985.

Why are there no good climate change novels? Too busy reading mindless drivel? I’m getting so desperate, I now just make up my own climate change SF scenarios.

We are now completely divided. Poor red plains rich blue coasts. As the plains dry and coasts flood, these people will be pushed closer together. The militarization of identity politics is a farce that’s not always useful and will be dropped. I blame Derek Jensen and those fancy 1960s french philosophic morons who still exploit commie infatuated youth to advocate destruction and anarchy. Especially in a gun crazed nation. Then there was operation Gladio, used to blame commies for episodic mass violence in Europe. It’s the same old shit, monarchy versus communism.

Death to gun culture. 100% private carbon dividends = justice & liberty.

Taxing the rich until there’re no rich no more is a good thing.
