Journalists Are Delighted to Disgust Bigots

Journalists are delighted when bigots are disgusted that they can present anything they wish to present.

They live to do that.

It is their mission in life.

It is their raison d’être.

Okay, you get the idea. I fun iterating it several ways.

Authoritarian bigots who disdain in-depth reporting backed up by sound research […]

Fight Attempts to Weaponize Freedom of Speech

Taking down statues that commemorate the Confederate past has served as the latest excuse for race and hate riots in the Untied States of America.

Heather Heyer, a white liberal woman, was run over by an Amerikkkan Nazi this weekend, and killed.

This is domestic terrorism, not an exercise of any right in the U.S. […]

The GOP Agenda is Hateful, But the Rose Garden is Beautiful

Today is the Summer Solstice.

It’s a time to enjoy the longest day of the year and smell the roses.

It’s a day when one is meant to be happy.

Happy Summer Solstice!

Well…not so happy.

The GOP keeps getting its way with elections and its politicians keep breaking their oaths to uphold […]

Algorithms, Suppression of Opposition Speech, and Psy-Ops.

As I write this, the Oscars are on. Why not? They’re fun.

I still want to see Hidden Figures, and I hope it wins big, because I’m such a sucker for all things outer space and feminist. My law thesis was on outer space law – but that’s another story, and also a fun one.

For Those Who Wonder Why the GOP Politicians Are Doing This…

…it is because the GOP politicians just don’t care about ethics nor their oaths to serve their constituents. They are so embittered that liberals got to make the reforms that we wanted and so many of them and they have given up and decided to cheat, because that’s the only way that they will be […]

Orwellian Monsters – Human and Computer

Here it is: the Orwellian monster that is Cambridge Analytica.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it…

The Data That Turned the World Upside Down

It has a data-gathering practice called OCEAN, an acronym for openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, neuroticism. It analyzes all that data to see what sort of voter you are. This corporation is […]

Destroying the World in Order to Build it Back Up – No Thank You.

Steve Bannon, Trump’s political strategist, has been heard to say that he wants to destroy the world, watch it burn, whatever it takes to remove the social, economic, political, and legal infrastructure that we now have, so that the slate will be cleared for building it anew.

Here is the quote:

“I’m a Leninist,” Bannon […]

Dystopian Fiction Feels Very Different From Dystopian Nonfiction.

Nineteen Eight-Four by George Orwell.

Mein Kampf by Adolph Hitler.

They are both dystopian books.

One is fiction, one is nonfiction.

Reading one is taking in a story with a moral to it – it’s a cautionary tale to learn from.

The same is true of the other.

The problem is that the first one […]

Don’t Expect Celebration of a Fascist Authoritarian.

It has finally happened.

Hell has frozen over, or whatever this state of disunion is.

We are officially living in the Untied States of America, and that is not a typographical error.

The size of the crowd must have been deeply disappointing to man whose ego is inextricably wrapped up in perceptions of size.

Book 3 of the Nae-Née Series is Out: New World Order Underwater.

At last, I can announce that I am the author of a completed series of novels on human overpopulation.

Here are their covers, done by artists Katelyn M. Gagnon (Book 1) and Steve Palmerton (Books 2 and 3):

The name of the series is Nae-Née, for a birth control nanite. The name is […]
