    I think we can also imagine how absolutely altruistic edits by well-intentioned, good-hearted people could go wrong. There's a famous quote from, of all people, C S Lewis on just that subject, about a dictatorship that exists for your own...

    Didn't James Blish do just that, once upon a day ( IIIRC?)...
  • Commented on FAQ: The Laundry Files--series timeline
    Ah, right (maybe) Two almost-identical phrases, meaning two totally different things. Very confusing...
  • Commented on FAQ: The Laundry Files--series timeline
    I am not running ANY "Eugenics programme" whatever your deluded religious viewpoint might imagine. I think we should stop this, right now, OK?...

    Translation: anyone who pretends that the theory of Mind isn't important since, I don't know, the fucking Cambrian, is a charlatan of the highest order. Not even wrong. Fist of all what is: "Mind"? Answer: - a false construct left-over...

    Hint: Mustn't "offend" the fuckwit religious-believers, even at this late date ... Reminder from self to everyone: If you get a chance go to THIS exhibition Tells how, even though guvmint KNEW as early as 1952, that the programme was...

    WHY would you even want to "effect" homosexuality or bisexuality or whatever with genetic engineering? I think you need to "look in a mirror" .... Also, what has a person's sexuality to do with ethics, either/anyway?...

    And THAT is why, nice guy that you probably are personally, neither you nor the transhumanists should be allowed out with anything more dangerous than a bog-brush. Because you are a n other set of "religious reformers" like the communists/christians/...

    S-power is about the ability to achieve relatively impersonal goals, such as are associated with charities. I.e. doing something for society. Slight problem. "Charities" are notoriously shit employers, since, because they are "doing good" they assume they can get away...

    Late reply Interesting, isn't it, that you & I & F have noticed the religious-bigotry angle at Orkney, but it gets seriously downplayed or studiously ignored in the usual reporting? Wonder why that might be? Hint: Mustn't "offend" the fuckwit...

    But the funny-money is hell-bent on sitting on $100,000,000,000 plus and being content to do nothing with it but watch their shitty Swatche knock-offs fail. Also WRONG ... Even those peop pass from hand-to-hand for a successful economy, including thier...

    I mean: he's both a writer and a (neo)Marxist who also accepts hierarchical placements? In other words, in spite of his intelligence & supposed literary talents [ I get lost inside his turgid prose ] he's still a deluded fuckwit....
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    Not even wrong I'm afraid. That someone posting to this blog should be as simplistic & victim-hunting as you appear to be is very worrying. Look, many "newspapers" will cheerfully hound the wrong person or group if it will sell...

    And the alternative to Barack & Bill were ... ? Now, I suggest you grow up....

    "Episcopalians"...
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    I've just remembered ... Wan't the Orkney Satanic Panic exactly this? The Wee Free ( or similar ) lodged entirely false allegations against Episcopailians .. And IIRC it's still not sorted out, properly [ As in the lairs who made...
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    Only too predictable ..... In Scotland, one might see a child of Catholic parents with a Wee Free "guardian" or vice versa .... Or a muslim guardian of a "jewish" child .... You can play the permutations, I'm sure! How...

    "Saints" "Angels" & "Devils" AFAIK & judging by the public records, at least 95% of all christian "saints" are/were egotistic, cruel dominating bastards of the first water, whom you really don't want to get near. ( As in being on...

    and probably never will be -- it's even more unpopular with the public than the Poll Tax, and you know what happened to that up here Phew - thank you, that's relief. That's exactly the sort of thing I would...

    ... Philip Roth lit-fic academia novel find themselves in a particularly violent Iain M. Banks Culture novel instead ... Now that sounds INTERESTING. Particulary, as in my admittedly-prejudiced opinion, such people are actually very poorly educated & have feeble imaginations....
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    Points taken. BUT The really important meaning of this (I think) is that every parent in Scotland is presumed to be guilty ... unless "passed" by the state-sponsored "guardians" - & who shall guard the guardians? It's only too easy...
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    You too? ALL parents will be required to submit to this spying regime, married, cohabiting or whatever. It's as sensible & cost-effective as screening atheist beer-drinkers like me at airport "security" in case I'm an islamicist-terrorist. Really peoples, that any...

    Oh & I forgot. How much is this futile STASI exercise going to COST?...
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    Excuse me but IDIOT. And what is an authoritarian spy like you (judging by your response) doing on this blog? Grrrrr. [ Or were you trying to be ironic & failing miserably? ] So, SOME parents & institutions in the...

    Going back to Charlie's original posting (!), it's worth remembering that there are also elections in London - for the Mayor & Assembly & also in Scotland next Thursday. THIS subject which I had thought dead & buried has apparently...
  • Commented on PSA: 5-Point Writer's Block Checklist
    This takes us back to the complaints about the movie plots of/for the 21st Century, doesn't it?...
  • Commented on Rise Of The Trollbot
    because only left-wing killers qualify as "terrorists". Then how does your USSA ex-collegue then refer to Da'esh, I wonder? Since they are not "left-wing" by any stretch of the imagination. Being very close indeed to the NSDAP in their "policies"....

    I suspect it's one of those civil service led initiatives (like National ID cards) that keeps coming back, like a bad penny, because .... Horribly true, I suspect. What annoys me is that the arrogant politicos fall for this crap....

    Yeah Brain going to pot, again .......
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    And others on the Daily Heil ... However, as someone pointed out, they do do some quite good investigative real journalism, sometimes. Two days ago, someone showed me this scary peice about a mobile-phone "hacking" money-diverting scam. Worth watching out...
