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.
