comprehending economics?
#14
Even in science fiction, the only way we can cope with a Utopian society is to discover its evil underpinnings.
To see society of happy well adjusted humans having a fun life is like asking the question of uncovering the evil overlord's insidious agenda.

We can't write the book that dos the follow up on "And then, they lived happily ever after." The end.

Religion helps us dodge the problem. We simply postpone glory until after death. Therefore, activities here are pre-fucked, and at best can only offer the good life later. After you're dead.

Most monkeys and apes spend obscene amounts of effort at making life suck. They live in a state of perpetual warfare, basically...interrupted by brief moments of rape-like sex. We're in that same boat. Like the baboons, we aren't up for an intelligent approach to reproduction.

Even among humans, such talk is pretty much off limits. We're in a tight little groove, us humans.

Here's a radically offensive thing to say:

If the human life span averaged 30 years, like most other large mammals, we wouldn't be in this mess.

We're greedy for life, but insist that it be fairly shitty.

In other news, the Chinese have the first Crisper altered babies. Genetically manipulated for aids immunity.
That sort of hanky panky is illegal everywhere else. Too much like playing God. Nukes, evidently, are the 'just right' amount of playing God.

Also, a new probe has successfully landed on Mars. Long drive to get there, but pretty exciting stuff. I look forward to the information we may receive from the endeavor. Elon Musk says he wants to live there, even if he dies in the attempt.

That's kind of how I feel about the Earth and it's future.

Not much to lose, making bold proclamations.

Here's a scenario you won't see:

"Little Johnny? What do you want to be when you grow up?"

"Gosh, Mr. Johnson...I've been thinking about that a lot. i think I'd like to flunk out of high school; get a girl pregnant; try to steal a car; get caught; go to jail for a few years; get out and sell drugs; party a lot, and eventually o.d. on heroin laced with fentanyl. I'm hoping to accomplish all that by the time I'm thirty."

"Ambitious plan, Johnny...but I believe in you. If you set your mind to it, you can accomplish your goals."


In my next life, I plan to be the new Kim Kardashian. Except for fucking Kayne. That's out.


Shucks, never too late or too soon to map out one's future.
