This is smart and very uncynical. It's a great tool for showing retail politics, discussing policies, and showing the kind of tempered vulnerability that a lot of voters apparently want! Also, BONUS: BAILEY! https://twitter.com/ewarren/status/1153134478002458626

This Catholic priest seems very concerned about people he says are homeless breaking his stuff. He blames the city. This seems… uncharitable. He’s basically describing a few random acts and not pinning the blame on the wealthy who reject taxation but the city.

(Note: Doomed = could be saved! The dramatic tension is that Earth/humanity is doomed. The resolution is “we’re saved!”)
Name a work of science fiction or fantasy that takes place on our Earth (or in a universe in which our Earth exists) in which Earth isn’t doomed or hasn’t already been destroyed or abandoned or human beings aren’t doomed or extinct.
The Forever War. Also, Alice In Wonderland. And Vurt counts, right?
I had to go re-read the Forever War plot. My recollection is that humanity “ended,” but it was really like intentional, peaceful uplift. I never read Vurt! I'm going to assemble all this into a list/Medium article. (I read Ubik. I feel like Vurt and Ubik are cousins.)
I’m looking forward to that article! It’s great to read SF that isn’t dystopian or hopeless.
I just read a book I quite liked (Calculating Stars) and it opens with…well…Earth disaster! It was very good. But I felt like EVERY book, even ones I dearly like, are about end times or post-destruction.
The other one is this — think of a sci-fi or fantasy book or movie without a long scene in which people are camping, crossing a frozen wasteland, or crossing a desert.
Also tough. Does it also have to be non-doomed earth? If not, I’d say The Sheep Look Up or Stand On Zanzibar.
Can be doomed or non-doomed. (How do I not know either of these books?!) My thoughts on this started on an Incomparable episode discussing LeGuin when we got to Left Hand and its INTERMINABLE ICE CROSSING.
At first, I was like, ok, this is the template that all other scifi/fantasy authors followed. Then I remembered all the damn camping in the Areas of Scenic Beauty in and around Mordor in LotR.
I reread The Hobbit a few years ago and was surprised how much of it was just hiking.
Spiritual forerunner of The Martian!
It’s about evolution rather than a threat, really, right?
Correct. There is zero threat to mankind; the aliens only seek to help us.
The book is wonderful and I hate to finish it. I fortunately have the second volume already in hand.
Nearly finished with M.R. Kowal’s Calculating Stars, and I am struck by the fact that the protagonist is a Jewish woman. I can’t recall another sci-fi or fantasy novel (not short story) with an avowedly Jewish lead?
