#solarpunkreads number whatever: short fiction
becky chambers who i already love for the Wayfarer series wrote a shorter book about space exploration, To Be Taught, If Fortunate. a group of nearish-future astronauts employed by an international science co-op(!!!) are on a long haul mission to explore a string of exoplanets, and even though they expect a return trip, they know it will put them decades out of their time.
A couple of days after 9/11, Hunter S. Thompson, writing for ESPN, go figure, wrote one of the few genuinely intelligent pieces of political writing of this century.
"Make no mistake about it: We are At War now -- with somebody -- and we will stay At War with that mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives. "
This is Required Reading, and it's short.
also you know what i fucking hate so god damn much? the idea that small business are in anyway more moral in comparison to corps. ugh. the rage that fills my being when the owner walks in to the shop with their expensive lifestyle and their stress free demeanor and asks me how my day is. of course i say my day is great but i really want to lock them in their office until they pay their workers more and gives us enough pay to feel half the stability that they do. they would be nothing without us.
