He's just upset that essentially all of Heinlein's books remain in print and popular after all these years, and people will still be reading and enjoying Heinlein long after nothing remains of the current SJW spasm generally and PZ specifically but a bad smell.
I gotta admit that I used to be more like ole PZ. I was mad at the world... figuring it was everyone elses fault for my struggles. Then I started to become successful.... and... eventually... I figured out that I could succeed as long as I didn't blame things on others. PZ is basically just a whining loser. He is obviously reasonably successful in a way... since he is a teacher etc. But, he is not content to live happily in his world and do his best every day. He has convinced himself that he should be king of the world. What an ass.

So, I don't really play sports, I like watching musicals, I birdwatch, I hike, I play war games with little toy soldiers. And if you don't like what I do then don't do it. I don't fucking care. and... I consider myself a traditional man. I work hard, I try to be honest, I take care of my family... and this does not mean I am in some kind of fucking patriarchy. I work twice as hard as any of the women in my life right now.... and hell... I work ten times more than my wife. and... this is what the patriarchy looks like.... Jesus Christ.

and the fucking leftist assholes try to call me a fascist. whatever. Haha.

I think it was Camile Paglia who said something like "If women ran everything we would still live in grass huts." Haha. I love it. Because really.... science fiction is about fucking SCIENCE! It is in the god-damned name! SCIENCE FICTION. Men like science and machines and shit ten times more than women.... So... most of the good sci fi tends to be masculine. GET OVER IT BITCHES and go read Little Women or something. Go fuck off! And let men have some male spaces! Really now... just suck my asshole!

So, now, after being totally red-pilled I struggle to even listen to the radio or TV. What the fuck!

I have been thinking about getting some patriotic fans and a bunch of US flags for my house. Over the top shit! I don't know what my wife will think of this. Haha.

end-of-rant.
The result of intersectional crap is that people now have other people to blame for their situation. That leads to tribalism, and tribalism never leads to anything good. Here is an example (from NBC (!)) of blaming men for women's problems:

https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/m ... cna1042931
Framed differently, the picture is this: Men need heterosexuality to maintain their societal dominance over women. Women, on the other hand, are increasingly realizing not only that they don’t need heterosexuality, but that it also is often the bedrock of their global oppression.
Historically, women have been conditioned to believe that heterosexuality is natural or innate, just as they have been conditioned to believe that their main purpose is to make babies — and if they fail to do so, they are condemned as not “real,” or as bad, women.
So evolution had nothing to do with it.

On science fiction, I found this archive: http://www.luminist.org/archives/SF/.

I always liked the classic big three - Asimov, Clark and Heinlein, as well as other writers from SF's golden age. But I never considered them the be-all and end-all of the genre, so enjoyed the New Wavies such as Ursula K. Le Guin, Brian Aldis and Harlan Ellison too.

I remember William Gibson saying that he was not interested in the technology so much as the behavior and culture of the people that were using it. So he was writing about people as much as he was writing about things. And then by the time he wrote 'Pattern Recognition' - it was in the same genre and style as his earlier works, but arguably due to general advances was no longer science fiction.

Don't much care who is gerrymandering the lines between 'mascaline' and 'feminine' fiction - to let everyone know what is and isn't acceptable.


Ah well - I think I'll go and read something by James Tiptree Jr...that'll show 'em.
Nah, the one you want to read is Jack Chalker. Maybe something from the Flux and Anchor series. And not Midnight at the Well of Souls - that one's actually a great book.

Perverse worldview is putting it mildly.

Relaxing with some morning coffee... catching-up on the youtube I missed...

and Sargon is talking about a mysterious, unidentified 'prophet' caught on video 20 years ago, campaigning for Donald Trump to be President...

...well that prophet is a good friend of mine & cohort in weird public stunts.

So-- who has a good communication line to Sargon? I can introduce him to Thee Prophet. Maybe he'll do a 'Sargon for Knighthood' sign...

PZ has a column about a sexual predator prof at Yale. (He never mentions the orientation of the prof. Better to imply it is another white, cis-male, hetero perv than a white, cis-male, gay perv. At the end of the blogpost, PZ reveals why is at UMM rather than an Ivy League college:
I would like to point out that working with spiders in Minnesota seems to provide few excuses for sexually harassing students, but apparently if an industrious, motivated professor could find a way to turn studying vervet monkeys into an opportunity to get into students’ pants, it could be done. Except that I have no interest in treating students that way. I guess that’s why Redmond was at Yale, while I’m at a small state school (PZ Myers)
There you have it! I knew there was a logical explanation why PZ isn't a full prof at Harvard or Yale.

That really is what it's all about. Peez has failed at masculinity his entire life, so when he bombasts " it’s time to overthrow the old order. There will be great pain in the churn", he's fantasizing about toppling all the boys & men who ever were better at being boys & men than he (which he defines as "misogyny" and 'toxic masculinity'.)

What a sad, defeated creature PZ is. Even his impotent rage seems especially flaccid of late.
PZ has been doing "now it's time to get serious and kick ass" schtick since at least the early 2000's on Panda's Thumb. Every couple months he does a new variant of "This time I am really serious! No more Mr. Nice Guy!"

In addition to being one the least scientifically productive Ph.Ds in the history of the degree, he perhaps is academia's biggest paper tiger.

So...concerning free will...

...and the death penalty for people that kill...


...If I recall correctly (which I don't necessarily- see following wiki-link) - Charles Whitman - the Texas Tower shooter requested that an autopsy be performed on him after his death - to try and find the cause of his actions.

The autopsy found a tumor in his brain - but did not conclusively link it to his actions (more info in the link above).

It does raise the question as to what extent he was acting under his own volition - and if he had survived, whether he should have been put in prison, or a mental hospital or possibly just operated on and released.


In some cases - justice seems to be a polite fiction at best.

Funny thing about the enabling and inspiring violence thing is that it sometimes works the other way round to that in which the Resistance claim. At the risk of inflaming Rabbit and Bear, I think Brive was correct in his conjecture as to the roots of recent so-called Right-wing violence in the West. It generally isn't when national leaders talk about a problem that the violence happens, it's when people perceive a major problem in their societies and nobody is talking about it or is allowed to talk about it. Intense frustration has to be released somehow and some people will blow violently. Problem on the Left is that loons genuinely believe that there is a Nazi problem and the authorities refuse to act. They're in a real tizzy over it, hence the rampant violence. IMO the reason they haven't gone full fertiliser bomb is that there are so many public figures and media outlets agreeing with them, which releases some of the emotion.

Hypocrisy and sanctimony aside, at least GT isn't as pig ignorant on the underlying issue as the conspiracy-theorising naysayers. If anything, climatologists have been a bit reticent of late in expressing how alarming they think the situation really is. Poking fun at the sanctimonious celebs is really just another way of negating the seriousness of the issue. If PJW really wanted to expose some AGW related lunacy he would be directing some snark this way:

How do you get to be this ignorant? By studying Robotics at MIT apparently. What is it about engineering that attracts the Dunning-Krugerites?

Speaking of Netflix, I recently binged on all three seasons of The Last Kingdom - and it is fucking excellent, even if the protagonist, Uhtred of Babbababbaeeuurgh occasionally sidles into Marty-Stu territory. The portrayal of King Alfred is fantastically good: physically weak and sickly, as history records, yet fiercely intelligent, cunning as all fuck and nursing a piety that sometimes borders on fanaticism. Considering it started out as a BBC series, it's quite astonishing to see no BAME folk in Anglo-Saxon England at all. Maybe Chiwetel Ejiofor was just asking for too much money to play Alfred, or something.

Just watched episode 1 of Wu Assassins on Netflix. It's proof that diversity is no cure for corniness.

Fantastic show!

Jeff Daniels is amazing in the show and really sinks into the role, very believable psycho character.

Good recommendation, Phil.

I'm quite enjoying it, and some of the episodes with Ibis, Anansi, Baron Samedi, and of course Shadow Moon, were beautifully cinematic.

I panicked briefly when I saw the headline about French musician killed by bear in Canada.

There are three.
