A couple years ago I read a four book science fiction trilogy by Canadian marine biologist Peter Watts which I enjoyed quite a bit. For a while I even had a link to his blog in my list. Here's my post announcing that, which includes a link to his post celebrating the election of Obama which was titled Where Were You When the USA Pulled Back from Being a Fascist Shithole?
He's probably been too busy to think of that post lately, but if he has I imagine he now recognizes his error. I didn't hear about this until yesterday, but he had, let's say, a difference of opinion with some Michigan border guards back in December. Here is his first post on the subject where he suggests that in a parallel universe he didn't get punched, pepper-sprayed, jailed, charged, and otherwise abused for asking a question. And here is what I first learned about it after his sentencing hearing, and here is his own post afterward.
Pulled back, indeed! Power to the people, one small link for man, etc.
On the Edge, Precariously
