      1. The more abstract something is, the higher the chance of people not getting it. I’ve written stuff like that in the past when it makes sense as I write it, but a while later – when I have forgotten about it – I sometimes struggle figuring out what it was about and why it made sense in the beginning. Sometimes a little blurb at beginning/ end helps set the mood.

  1. I had to go to New York City for something last week and it was borderline apocalyptic. Not full blown–if it were a book or movie, it’d be the opening scene before the shit began to hit the fan. I was looking around thinking, Moley could do a lot with this.

  2. ALL GOOD PROSE OFTHE FUTURE AND ALL BAD FUTURE ALREADY BEGINNING TO JUST BEGIN. THE EXTREME HORROR IS NOT FAR AWAY. WHAT A STUPID SPECIES. HUMANS HAVE BEEN CALLED THE THRIRD CHIMPANSEE WHICH IS A REAL INSULT TO THE OTHER TWO CHIMPANSEES SPECIES WHO IT IS TRUE MUDRER EACH OTHER WITHOUT ANY SIGN OF REMORSE, BUT AT LEAST THEY KEEP IT TO THEIR OWN SPECIES. WE SEEM HELL BENT ON KILLING EVERY LIVING THING ON EARTH ANIMAL AND VEGETABLE. JUST A DESEART AHEAD FOR ALL LIVING THINGS, AND EXTEMES OF TEMP;ERETURE AHEAD THAT WILL MAKE TODAY’S EXTREMSE LOOK MILD. WOW ARE WE DUMB OR WHAT? GREED KILLS, STUPIDITY KILLS, WAKE UP FOLKS AND SMELL THE END IF WE DON/’T CHANGE ARE WAYS.AND I MEAN NOW NOT LATER. NOWCOULD WEEL BE OUR LAST CHANCE.

  3. “And the wavin’ wheat, can sure smell sweet when the wind comes right behind the… Hey, Richard, what’d they call that stuff?”
    “What stuff, Oscar?”
    “What stuff? You know, water. From the sky.”
    “Rain?”

    1. The juxtaposition of weather extremes, historical flooding here, thousand-year drought there, boiling temps killing thousands of air-condition-less across the planet. Pandemics lined up like Disney queues. Maybe Pinker actually IS clueless.

  4. Wow. Existential crisis in full bloom. Bro, ever read “Earth Abides?” Mankind will survive, but we may have reached the apex of luxury. Only the rich have their eunuchs to pamper every deviant whim.

      1. I read your treatise. Noir, which is what you discuss stylistically, does not require a “genre” (a word I despise). All that is required is the vocabulary of grime. This facade of civilization is a thin crust on an already “dystopian” pie. Mad Max is alive and well in Downtown pick-your-city. Pull a cell phone at a public transportation stop without your other hand on a pistol? Foolish. Drive solo out of the high rise in Detroit after dark? Stupid. Walk from your hotel to the Walgreen’s across the street after dark in LA? Security won’t let you. Shit constantly be goin’ down has absolutely nothing to do with “civilized” behavior. The rich? Possibly. But not the rich drawing big bucks at Duke Energy or Exxon or software magnates or politicos. Big, organized, well-armed cash money rich. Your “dystopia” is available now, right around the corner.

        1. No argument here.
          I think that when suburbia feels the impact of the apocalypse, that’s the core market for dystopian stories. If you don’t threaten Mr. & Mrs. BradyBunch then it’s not a true calamity. “Inner city strife? Biz-as-usual”

          1. Until three under driving age black kids kill a woman in her driveway, in the most affluent part of town, just because they want to drive her car. And that lasts 24 hours while looters burn downtown over a thug committing suicide by cop. “They” won’t let it get next door by channels. All we know is experiential. Even that is quickly numbed.
