Why, yes, my middle name is hubris.

At Liberty Island, we’re all about breaking the worker’s paradise-friendly paradigm, so sure, why not?  Let’s do a “Year in Review” column, even though it’s only the second column of Dispatches from the Alamo… and it’s the end of the freaking year.

You know how it hurts me when you doubt me.

When Babies Arrive: A Springly Walkabout with a Blue-Haired Farmer

When the grasses die off, all the creatures depend more on bucket-feeding. Everything comes and goes in cycles. In keeping with that rhythm, this past November, we went from around two hundred animals down to around one hundred.

New Science Fiction: Revival

“I – We’ve analyzed the data. It was a spate of second births that parents had already wanted to have or the earlier birth of first borns. No one is having third children that are necessary for population growth. The incentives are not even stabilizing growth by encouraging parents to have second children above the one designer child they typically have. Children are seen as a burden; money doesn’t change mindsets.” Daniel wondered how so many experts in propaganda and public affairs could not see beyond the carrot and stick approach. The birth dearth was caused by a lack of desire for children as much as a lack of children themselves. “A single financial bonus does not counteract years of propaganda of how hard it is to raise more than one child.”

A New LI Series Debuts: Griff’s Culture Dispatches from the Alamo

“Arise, Cultural Dupes! You have Nothing to Lose but Your Chains!”

The author of the Lonesome George Chronicles starts a new column dissecting culture high and low… Have you ever really, really thought about story? Have you ever thought about how story is the way we make sense of our life, the universe, and our place in it? The stories we tell ourselves have a real impact. “My dad neglected us, he was never home, and he missed all of my baseball games” paints a very different picture of reality than explaining your childhood by saying “My dad worked incredibly long hours so mom could stay at home, so we could live in a safe neighborhood, so there would be money for college for us kids.”
