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

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

#32 - Because Bradbury was almost prophetic, Niven & Pournelle made hard SF like diamonds and as a side project took down the Soviet Union (Pournelle´s claims will leave you smiling), Herbert illustrated the unbreakable link between terrorism and jihad, Clarke discovered geosynchronous orbits amongst 2001 other stories, Spinrad wrote the only alternative history worth its paper and ink, Anderson got patriotic with New Americans and warped with tau, l´Engle combined morality with higher dimensions, Blish sent Jesuits to space, Schaara had a life before Gettysburg, and Silverberg tried to anthologize all of them in between his own work.

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.

I don´t think the president´s going to do that. Just as a practical matter, even if we passed it, why would he sign it?"

What the late Lionel Trilling used to call the liberal imagination was captured by the plight of two black men who went to a Philadelphia Starbucks and didn´t order anything. The company said 8,000 Starbucks stores would close for sensitivity training and the conscience of an anguished world pulsated with guilt and grief over the arrest of the two men, whose only offense was to stand there. The two men were exactly right: The right thing to do in Starbucks is not to order anything, because the coffee is disgusting. Starbucks´ response, to be sure, was incommensurate with the problem: Rather

Tallahassee police suspected Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois possessed marijuana with the intent to sell it when they executed a search warrant on his home last week, according to an affidavit. The case — which culminated Thursday when Francois agreed to a pre-arrest diversion program on misdemeanor complaints of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia — began in February. That´s when an anonymous tipster known to law enforcement reported seeing a grocery bag of marijuana at Francois´ home. Police estimated it was about two pounds of the drug – "in excess of what a common ´user´ of cannabis might have on hand

A high-speed police chase ended Tuesday with K9 units shifting through heavy swamp foliage to apprehend a Pasco County suspect who was submerged in mud after battering a Hernando County deputy and fleeing a traffic stop. The arrest of Paul Daniel Smith, 34, was caught on body-cam footage and shows the suspect completely submerged in water near Gardenia Drive and Wisteria Loop in Land O’Lakes. The police video shows Smith, of Holiday, asking officers to not "cuff him too tight" while a police dog named Knox sniffs at his face. In defiance, Smith said he’d like to be "tased" so he could

Perhaps I should have written the headline as "You´re" showering too much. I live alone, spending most of my days writing and blogging and I very rarely have to interact with other people.

Former FBI Director James Comey may have, for the moment at least, become the most polarizing figure in America not named Donald Trump.

As I pointed out last week when the first excerpts from Comey´s book were leaked, these are the same people who until recently blamed him for getting Trump elected.

The problem with defining whether you’re an Alpha or a Beta male is that everybody wants to be an Alpha and we’re great at lying to ourselves. Either we fudge the answers or try to make being Alpha unobtainable (Alphas? That’s guys like Chuck Norris, James Mattis or The Rock) so we don’t feel bad about missing the mark. So, let’s make it a little more objective with this quiz. Answer as honestly as you can and this will let you know where you really stand. 1) Are you more of a leader or a follower? Have you taken a group

NEW YORK (CBS) — A sketch of the man Stormy Daniels says threatened her lit up Twitter on Tuesday, with many seeing a resemblance to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Daniels appeared on ABC’s “The View” Tuesday morning with lawyer Michael Avenatti. They released a sketch of the man Daniels says approached her in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 while she was carrying her infant daughter, and told her “not to go to police and leave Mr. Trump alone.” Daniels said the encounter happened after she had agreed to give a magazine her story about the alleged

Former FBI Director James B. Comey said Wednesday that he no longer considers himself a Republican. “I just think they’ve lost their way, and I can’t be associated with it,” Mr. Comey said on ABC News podcast “Start Here.” Mr. Comey attributed the change in the party to the 2016 election and said that after he was fired, he started to become more politically aware. He has been a lifelong Republican and said that in today’s party, the only Republican he does respect is former 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney. He called Mr. Romney, who is running for the open Senate seat in Utah, a “person of principle and honor.”

Kramerbooks, located in Washington’s trendy Dupont Circle district, is the place Washingtonians go to hang out, browse books, and grab something to eat at the attached cafe. It’s much smaller than a Barnes and Noble and has survived Amazon because it is cozy and inviting, offering the feeling that you are immersed within a warm den of great books. And if you’re going to sell a political book, it’s a good place to start, given the clientele. The place was open at 12:01 am Tuesday morning expecting long lines for James Comey’s new book, “I’ve Got Higher Morals than You,” or “I’m

A Democratic lawmaker demanded Monday evening that Fox News Channel fire Sean Hannity for having Michael Cohen as a lawyer. Rep. Gerry Connolly, Virginia Democrat, said on CNN that Mr. Hannity is untrustworthy because he did not disclose his ties to Mr. Cohen while commenting on or covering the Trump administration. “I think he is so into this like a pig in the mud he can’t get out of it. And I think he deserves to be fired. His word can never again be trusted,” Mr. Connolly said, calling the revelation at a court hearing earlier Monday “a big stain on Hannity

As president of S.F. Travel, the city’s visitors bureau, Joe D’Alessandro’s job is to promote San Francisco. You’d think he’d be hyping the city’s gorgeous vistas, top-notch restaurants and glorious museums. Instead, he’s getting honest. Sure, San Francisco has great facets worthy of postcards and travel books, but it also has a worsening underbelly that D’Alessandro says he can no longer gloss over. People injecting themselves with drugs in broad daylight, their dirty needles and other garbage strewn on the sidewalks. Tent camps. Human feces. The threatening behavior of some people who appear either mentally ill or high. Petty theft. “The streets are

During a Tuesday interview with “Good Morning America,” former FBI Director praised Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, saying he learned a lot about leadership from the future Hall of Fame. “I admire LeBron James, and he’s probably about to find out I used to talk about him all over the FBI and say he illustrates what the endless pursuit of excellence looks like,” Comey told host George Stephanopoulos. He continued, “Every offseason, I’ve read, he tries to find a part of his game to make better — which is crazy, because he’s already better than everybody else. It’s because he measures himself

On Tuesday, Starbucks announced it will be closing 8,000 stores on May 29 so 175,000 employees can attend a training program that will address implicit bias, promote inclusion and help prevent discrimination, NBC reports. Eric Holder was tapped as one of the ‘experts’ to assist with training the employees. That’s all you need to know. NBC reported: Starbucks said Tuesday it will be closing all of its company-owned restaurants in the U.S. during the afternoon of May 29 to conduct a racial-bias education program. “I’ve spent the last few days in Philadelphia with my leadership team listening to the community,

James Woods went there. Late Saturday night, patriotic actor James Woods asked anyone who attended Columbia University and recalled Obama as a student there to please respond by tweeting a picture of him at Columbia. Twitter erupted and the responses were hilarious. Barry Hussein Obama’s records are still sealed so we don’t know what his grades were like nor do we know the content of any papers he wrote. People who attended Columbia University at the same time as Obama do not recall seeing him or having any classes with him.

After starting an advertiser boycott of Fox News Channel host Laura Ingraham, gun-control activist David Hogg has set his sights on two new targets — iconic gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson and its capital backers. In a series of tweets Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Hogg sicced his 764,000 Twitter followers on five investment companies, singling out two most of all — Blackrock and Vanguard Group. “.@blackrock and @Vanguard_Group are two of the biggest investors in gun manufacturers; if you use them, feel free to let them know,” he tweeted with a winking emoji. In one follow-up tweet he used the hashtags #BoycottBlackrock and

SAN DIEGO - Fayaz Nawabi has never met President Donald Trump. But he credits the president with convincing him to run for office. Nawabi, a 31-year-old candidate for San Diego City Council, supports almost everything that Trump opposes: He is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates spurred to run by Trump´s election and policies. But Nawabi is also part of a notable subset: the blue Muslim wave. More than 90 American Muslims, nearly all of them Democrats, are running for public office across the country this year. Many

Starbucks is closing thousands of stores across the U.S. on the afternoon of May 29 to conduct "racial-bias education geared toward preventing discrimination in our stores," the company said in a statement. The coffee shop chain has been criticized and protested against after two black men were arrested last week at a Starbucks in Philadelphia, where they were quietly waiting to meet someone. Starbucks employees called 911 after one of the men, who had not yet purchased anything, asked to use the bathroom and then remained at the shop. Other customers recorded the arrest and protested that the men hadn´t

A group of kids is suing Florida Gov. Rick Scott, claiming he “endangered” their future and violated their constitutional rights by not doing anything to combat climate change. The youngsters filed their lawsuit on Monday in Leon County Court. “It is the responsibility of the state to uphold the constitution, and these young people have a fundamental right to a stable climate system,” said Guy Burns, lead counsel for the eight plaintiffs, most of whom are teens. The youths are being represented by the Oregon-based nonprofit organization Our Children’s Trust, which is supporting similar suits from children across the country.
