Before you accuse me of being racist, look up 'Liberia'. I'm not going to show it to you- see it for yourself- the birth rates for blacks that skyrocket compared to the birth rates for whites and asians.




Get ready for a world that is browner, dumber, and more violent.

If you want to accuse me of racism, you have to refute me first.

Welcome to reality. The worst thing, biologically speaking, that ever happened to humanity was and is modern medicine.

A good pandemic with a 90+ % infectivity rate and an 80+ % mortality rate would fix the problem. The biology in it was wrong, but the premise was just fine - go read Herbert's The White Plaque. Better yet, Stewart's Earth Abides.

Earth Abides has some excellent treats in it, for sure; overall Plague is more terrifying, though -

I foolishly read that shit when I was like 10 - another nugget for my psych profile.

Earth Abides is notable for conveying the first even vaguely realistic idea of disaster to the modern world, imo - its most important message (to me) is: "we are foolish to trust in any of these human systems for anything, ever"[spoiler]

Earth Abides abounds with excellence. The near opening scene when Ish comes down out of the high Sierra to an empty world changed the entire way I saw the world around me. The transcontinental odyssey was chilling. The closing scene is one of the most visually evocative pieces of prose ever written, IMO.

Want a truly apocalyptic scenario? Read Dust by Charles Pellegrino. It is one of the most chillingly horrifying visions ever penned.

I loved Earth Abides. The bridge scene at the end was fucking heart breaking. What I felt most from the book was a great sense of loss. They let the greatest trove of knowledge and understanding to exist in history fall through humanity's fingers by not teaching the kids. Laziness was their sin and damn them for it. I can't tell you the anger I felt when I finished the book. All I could think was "Dammit, spend an hour a day teaching you lazy fucks. Bust those kid's asses, make them LEARN to read and appreciate what was and what can be!" When they mentioned possibly showing the kids a working refrigerator and the joy of ice but didn't I hated them Soooo much. I wish I had read that book at an earlier age than in my late teens.

My apocalyptic cherry was busted early on with Mad Max and the Road Warrior. I followed up with the Survivalist series of books at a very early age, (gunporn at it's very best/worst) and my father's subscription to Soldier of Fortune and many of the early Palladin press books. (Thank you Ragnar Benson!) The die was set and what came out I wouldn't change for anything.

I don't know how I'll deal with it; I at least know that I will cling to my core values; community, society and nation as I never have before, to try and bear the brunt of the oncoming invasion.

Our library does not have Dust. I might have to buy it, unless one of you wants to send me a copy. My postapocalyptic reading list is not complete!

The book appears to have had only a single printing, as the author has been revealed to be more than a bit a charlatan and a fabulist of supposed facts regarding his sources and his academic history.

The story itself remains a good read, but it is damned difficult to find a copy. Last time I was at the large 2nd hand book store here, they had a copy. I had planned to go over there tomorrow anyway, so I'll look for it.

I will get it used on Amazon if need be -- please don't buy a copy on my account. A charlatan, eh? That makes it even more enticing.

You've already done more research (and might I add, had more life experience) than most of the writers whom you idolize...

It's time for you to step up to the plate (of timeless authors)...

You've paid your dues.

Silly boy, writing I do for my own pleasure, as I am moved to do so. I frankly do not want, and carefully avoid public notice, for the most part.

As for "idolizing" any author, I'll have to deny that notion. There are a few I respect, but none deserve worship.

Of course Africans will reproduce. They got big dicks.
My dog has big dick.
And he even fucked his daughter.
Made 13 puppies already by 4 different bitches.

LF, anyone can reproduce. Anything can reproduce. That doesn't mean they should.

I'm not racist. I'm speciesist. I'm for human population reduction. At this particular time in our evolution, we've found ourselves at a point of diminishing returns re: quantity = quality.
