Prominent Science Fiction Author
Calls for Depopulating Rural Areas

PJ Media, by Tom Knighton

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 3/21/2018 7:47:24 PM

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity. If we managed urbanisation properly, we could nearly remove ourselves from a considerable percentage of

Comments:
The Left would like to move all of us into urban areas, housed in public units in tall buildings, dependent on public transportation. Suburbs are anthropogenic devices that allow wealthy humanity to live like a plague, overrunning like coyotes formerly pristine areas that need federal protection.

Did you know that if Duval County, Florida were covered in 20-story highrises, all 7,000,000,000+ people on earth would fit there?

Somebody might want to let Kimmy in on the secret about where food comes from.

So when we play cowboys and progressives where do you think the cowboys live? Good luck with that.

And after you realize your mistake good luck figuring out how to get your equipment working because you just killed the help desk and manufacturing engineering etc..

I call for depopulating this author.

I wonder if they have the slightest clue where food comes from, other than restaurants, or for the adventuresome NYC denizen, a grocery store?

Think hard, idiot, before the restaurant or grocery store is .... what?

A farm, ranch or feedlot in a RURAL area, run by those poor, ignorant, evil people who you all love to hate.

Perhaps we could cut off food supplies to cities larger than, say 100,000 people for a month and see how they like it?

It turns out that a whole lot of factories these days are also in rural areas, well out of big cities.

Several posters mention the idea of controlling the people. Concentrating them in a confined are is one.
Limiting their mobility is one that no one has mentioned on this forum. Has no one ever thought that electric cars limit the mobility of the population? Suppose the peons cannot go very far or very fast, and are concentrated in a small area (and disarmed). Control becomes easier.

#14, I have thought along the same lines as you are. Forcing us into electric cars will limit our ability to move around. Far easier to control.
Believe that this is all part of a plan to end all this problematic "freedom stuff". Stalin has millions of admirers who all think that they can do a better job of what he did.

What international Big Green (Inc.), the Democratic [sic] Party, Al Gore, and the entire political Left hate, and want to stop and roll back is "suburban sprawl." What is suburban sprawl? It´s going out to the country, living in the country. They want to make that illegal. On private land, at least. They don´t like private much of anything, except maybe private parts. Obama still claps with his political trained seals, flippers flapping and clapping, uh-uh-uh.

You could do that naturally and on a purely voluntary basis by making cities attractive to live in. This might include things like suppressing crime and lowering taxes and regulations on businesses. But these ideas would never be considered.

The progressivecommunist plan ALWAYS starts with some nebulous force of armed killers doing their bidding. Suppressing, punishing or ´rounding up,´ those that clawing tyrants like Mr, Robinson want to control. Hey, Kim, do you really have such contempt for the hard men and women in the US military that you think they will obey every lunatic thought a half baked writer comes up with? Of course you do. You are published writer. You´ve won prizes and give talks. You ´know´ the earth is being ´baked.´

Maybe there are enough willfully ignorant ego maniacs like this writer to push things so far that every American citizen will have to pick a side. Done it before Kim and punks like you don´t make the cut, but maybe this time will be different. Maybe you can wonder what happened to Global Warming when the sun sleeps and we huddle through a mini Ice Age of a hundred years or so.

I love th irony of a know it all Sci Fi dreamer depending on blatantly manipulated readings to prove a theory of lies made up so some greedhead elitists can make even more money.

Robinson needs to put his mouth where his life is and remove himself from the planet if he wants to be taken seriously. When he spouts this idiocy, the first question he should be asked is, “Why are you still here”?

This is called Agenda 21. In fact, it is being put into place a little at a time. Did your city put I bike lanes. You know those lanes that are along side car lanes
There use to be two lanes for the cars. w there is only one lane with the bike lane running along side the one car lane This is to get people out of cars and onto bikes. Like China. Check Agenda 21 out. Many cities are putting new regulations in and you don´t know it. And the people pushing this 21 stuff, are nasty and sneaky. look them up

First off, the genre known as Science Fiction today is not the same as what most of us oldsters enjoyed as kids. It has been infested with SJW rot and especially putrid is the quiet support of pedophilia.

The daughter of a supposed iconic SF writer just released her own book documenting what a hellish childhood she had, molested by her parents. This genre has long past gone to the sewer If you enjoy the genre, look backwards at the old authors. The current crop pushed by the Publishing Houses are not worth it.

I stopped reading Sci-Fi after I read all of Heinlein, Clarke, Bradbury, and Asimov. I started up again with the Honor Harrington series, and am now working on the Star Carrier series. I had never heard of this Kim fellow, and will be sure not to read his books.

Around 1900, it took 90% of the US population to feed 100%. Today, it takes less than 10% to feed 100%. Those 10% are one of the few businesses that buy retail, and sell wholesale. Mining and energy companies also come to mind.

What’s that? Unemployment is about to hit a record low. Yes, it is. Ever since President Donald J. Trump signed major tax reform legislation into law, the economy has been booming. Strong job growth, rising wages, and three million jobs created since Trump was sworn into office. There are now more jobs than there are job seekers. Over three million workers from over 250 companies have been given bonus checks averaging $1,000 or more. Guy has a lengthy post detailing the strong retail sales report from June, along with another company, Mack Molding, announcing a $5.4 million expansion that will

As so often happens, President Trump’s critics are so crazy that one feels compelled to take his side. Thus, former Communist and CIA Director John Brennan tweeted earlier today: (Snip, Brennan tweet) This is simply insane. Other Democrats, not going as far as Brennan, say that Trump “gave away the store,” or made inappropriate concessions to President Putin. But there is no evidence that Trump gave anything away in his meeting with Putin, or made any concessions. Putin certainly didn’t suggest that he did, for example with respect to Crimea, about which Democrats expressed concern in advance of the meeting:

The first goal is the one I think I’ll remember. It wasn’t the pretty one—that would be Paul Pogba’s, which came in the fifty-ninth minute, after a long pass from Pogba to Kylian Mbappé, the visionary precision of which made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. And it wasn’t the jaw-dropping one—that would be Mbappé’s own, a few minutes later, when he blasted the ball almost casually into the net from twenty-five yards out. No, the goal that most neatly symbolized France’s World Cup-winning 4–2 victory over Croatia, on Sunday—and, for that matter, Les Bleus’ brilliant,

Although Germany´s entire defense budget is $42 billion, it is as Donald Trump provocatively observed, only twice as much -- approximately $21 billion -- as it pays to Russia in gas purchases. The facts are stark. "About 35% of Germany’s gas is imported from Russia, and fracking is banned at least until 2021. A former Chancellor of Germany sits on the Gazprom board." At a time when Putin is the international bad guy it´s disturbingly hard to deny that much of his bankroll originates in Europe. Merkel is certainly intellectually aware of the facts.

An interesting news story ran in Thursday’s USA Today. “Baltimore police stopped noticing crime after Freddie Gray´s death,” read the headline. “A wave of killings followed.” What I found most interesting about it, though, was not the facts that were reported but rather that anyone should have found them surprising. “Just before a wave of violence turned Baltimore into the nation’s deadliest big city,” the story begins, “a curious thing happened to its police force: officers suddenly seemed to stop noticing crime.” The story goes on to describe how Baltimore’s police officers reported seeing fewer drug dealers out and about, fewer traffic

I have written so many columns detailing the radical views and mental derangement of liberals that it’s hard to believe it’s getting worse! Liberal candidate for New York Governor Cynthia Nixon (former star of “Sex and the City”) just went a step further into crazy land. She said, “I can think of no better description than to call ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) a terrorist organization.” Well at least it’s all now out into the open. Liberals support illegal alien criminals and think ICE agents who protect our border, protect us from terrorism, and save women and children from kidnappers, rapists and

TAMPA — A doctor will determine whether the man accused of running down and killing a New Tampa father is too mentally ill to face trial. A judge Friday appointed a psychiatrist to examine Mikese Morse, after a defense attorney formally raised the issue of Morse’s competency at his arraignment. "This is the first time that my client’s mental health has been brought to the attention of the court," attorney James Smith said afterward. "I don’t think you have to be an expert to come to the conclusion that he has a severe mental illness." Hillsborough Circuit Judge Mark Kiser ordered Dr. George

I personally know appeals court Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who has been nominated by President Donald Trump to succeed retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court. To call him qualified for the role is a massive understatement. A graduate of Yale Law School, Kavanaugh has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit since 2006. Previously, he served in multiple clerkships, including one for Justice Kennedy. In fact, several of his opinions have been adopted by the Supreme Court. As a judge, Kavanaugh has a solid track record that reveals a consistent fidelity to the U.S. Constitution and

ST.

A spirited crowd of about 200 turned out despite the time and temperature: midday and about 90 degrees with 60 percent humidity. Although billed as a voter registration rally, it was difficult to find an attendee political enough to show up, but apathetic enough to not already be registered. Many were too young to vote.

He repeated that ad nauseam throughout the circus-like congressional hearing Thursday.

As Paul noted earlier, Peter Strzok testified today–sort of–before a joint session of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees. The hearing crashed on takeoff and never recovered. After giving an opening statement lauding his own patriotism, Strzok refused to answer questions on the ground that an FBI lawyer had told him not to. What followed was a farce–a farce deliberately created and sustained by the Democratic members of the committee. They interrupted constantly with silly points of order, heckled the committee chairman, and generally tried to disrupt the proceedings. To understand how bad it was, just go here and scan the

Saturday on MSNBC, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said President Donald Trump criticizes former President Barack Obama because “he’s jealous of Obama and his administration.” When asked about Trump tweeting that President Obama should have done more about Russian’s interfering in our elections, Waters said, “First of all, let me say this: If the president wrote out at some point and said the sky is falling and it is Obama’s fault, and everybody knows he likes to blame Obama for any and everything that he can come up with. And in addition to that, it is very clear that he’s jealous

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause. The form letter is one small piece of the message minefield erupting around Kavanaugh

The man who co-wrote “The Art of the Deal” said Sunday he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing — and that he feels obligated to sound the alarm. “We are in a true emergency,” Tony Schwartz said on CNN Sunday. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.” Schwartz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt comfortable making that assessment because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months.”(snip)Stelter pointed out that Schwartz

Meghan Markle‘s smile is hiding fear, stress and the pressure of adjusting to her new royal duties, her father said in an interview published Sunday. “I think she is terrified,” Thomas Markle told The Sun. “I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile.” “I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now,” he added. “This is a pained smile.”The newly-minted Duchess of Sussex, 36, is struggling to cope with the transition from TV actress to a member of the royal

San Francisco Mayor London Breed said the streets of her city are flooded with the excrement of the homeless in an interview Friday. Breed, a Democrat who was inaugurated as San Francisco’s mayor Wednesday, urged homeless advocacy groups that receive money from the city to teach homeless people to “clean up after themselves.” “There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed told KNTV. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.” The streets of San Francisco are littered with a “dangerous

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), well, she’s working hard to boost her profile, but she’s running aground with the Bernie crowd. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) could run again, but his age—and the

Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. (Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter. Cohen’s bizarre tweet was similar to one from former Obama CIA Director

President Donald Trump’s comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday were “treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan asserted. “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, wrote on Twitter. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???” Trump and Putin fielded questions from reporters at a joint summit in Helsinki following a one-on-one meeting earlier in the day. Trump praised Putin during

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.

Citing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh´s record on privacy issues, Sen. Rand Paul (R–Ky.) said Sunday that he has yet to decide if he´ll vote to confirm the judge. "I´m concerned about Kavanaugh," Paul said on Fox & Friends, alluding to the judge´s views on the Fourth Amendment, which protects American citizens from "unreasonable searches and seizures." Paul explained that since President Donald Trump "did such a great job" with his first Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch, he is keeping an "open mind" regarding Kavanaugh. But the Kentucky Republican is "worried" and "perhaps disappointed" that Kavanaugh may "cancel out Gorsuch´s
