I am a radical libertarian who wants you to be free to live your life the way *you* want to live it, not as Barack Obama and Donald Trump say you ought to.

I finished reading 's . Aspects were implausible; no régime as centrally-planned as the Nazi's could develop the capability to colonise the Sol System. There were implausible aspects in , too. My favourite parts were…

Politics: the art of backlashing against the "other" side. Politicians on neither the "left" nor the "right" respect the natural rights of their subjects. If they did, they would not try to obtain the status of 'political leader' in the first place.

I suspect that many on the "right" *do* try to convince themselves that they love Trump, but only because they hates the "left" and think that loving-Trump helps to fulfill that hate. The "left" does the same thing with its own pet rulers.

I wasn't planning to read "High Castle" next (I was actually contemplating going back to , which I started way back in high school but never finished; or maybe ), but I saw it in the store and, figuring I should read it before watching the show, bought it.

…since Bill Lundborg may've been (probably was) schizo, I just could not get past my own hardwired scepticism. There just wasn't enough there (for me) to make that leap.

"Transmigration" was okay, but I did like "" and "" better. With "VALIS," I had no trouble embracing the idea that Sophia was the savior—even *after* she died and Fat's mind refractured; but, with "Transmigration," since I regard psychics as frauds, and…

I have always felt that was a little bit crazy—normal people don't don bat costumes and suicidally fight criminals. I appreciated the fact that, in this story, Batman is at his weakest when he is trying to deny this about himself, whilst he is trying to convince…

… As far as Batman himself goes, I'd say he arcs through the story, starting off strong on the GCPD roof, growing weaker and less secure as the story progresses, and emerging strong and confident again in the end upon finally embracing (or, reëmbracing) his role as "the bat."
