Help Wanted! Fashionable Opinion Needs Author for Its Next World
I plead insanity and I've got witnesses.
Do You Remember the Movie "Soylent
In the 1960s, at the end of the post-World War
II "baby boom," Fashionable Opinion said the white population was
growing wildly. The solution to this, said
Fashionable Opinion, was for bureaucrats to take over population
control. To save the world from overpopulation, we had to let
the professors, the "intellectuals," decide how many children each
person should have.
Charleton Heston's 1973 movie "Soylent
was about the Inevitable Future when America was so packed with
everybody was desperately poor. We ended up eating each other.
In "Soylent Green" Evil Americans had killed every
other form of life and ended up eating each other. "Soylent
Green" was made when Charleton Heston was a big Bobby Kennedy
supporter -- he says he still is -- and the big liberal demand was
to turn birth control over to the bureaucrats.
At the same time that "Soylent Green" came out
there was the usual flurry of science fiction books saying exactly the same
thing. One of them talked about the Inevitable Future when white people would
be jamming Britain so tightly that no one could move.
Shortly after "Soylent Green" was produced, the
liberal line changed. It turned out that by the 1960s the world's white
population was not expanding, it was dropping. It took
quite a while before Fashionable Opinion realized that, once again,
its predictions were wrong.
After it sunk in that the post-World War II
white "baby boom" was over and the white population was declining,
all those books were forgotten.
As usual, the Inevitable Future predicted by
liberals turned out to be silly. So they needed a new
The next Inevitable Future was typified by a book called
"The Population Bomb."
Next They Said That Liberals Must Rule
the World to Control Third World Population
"The Population Bomb" was written about the
runaway growth of third world populations in the 1970s.
It replaced the "Soylent Green" books because we had found out by
then that the white world was having a population bust, so "Soylent
Green" was silly.
The Social Message of the "Soylent Green" books
was that liberal planners, guided by social science professors, had
to take over population control in America and Europe because whites were having too many
children. When the white Baby Boom turned into a Baby
Bust, the "Soylent Green" fad fizzled. Like all liberal Social messages, it
was silly to begin with.
Then came another wildly popular book called
"The Population Bomb." This book showed that the third
world population was expanding wildly. So in the new
Inevitable Future, the third world population increase would go on
Just as "Soylent Green" was the main shark in a
feeding frenzy of science fiction books about a wildly overcrowded
white world, 'The Population Bomb" was the central book in a feeding
frenzy of books about the runaway third world birth rate.
"Soylent Green" and all the little
books surrounding it in the 1960s had a single Social Message. "The Population
Bomb" and all the little books surrounding it in the 1970s had a
single Social Message.
By the most amazing coincidence, both "The
Population Bomb" and all the little science fiction books circling
around it had exactly the same liberal Social Message
as "Soylent Green" did.
"The Population Bomb" said that liberal social
planners had to set up a world birth control program. World bureaucrats would control population
in the third world. Bureaucrats would also
supervise a program to move excess third world population into white
To solve the third world's population problems,
excess third worlders would be sent into ALL white majority
countries, and ONLY into white majority countries. None
would be sent to Japan or Taiwan or any of the open lands in the
third world itself.
By another amazing coincidence, sending the
world's excess third world population into ALL white majority countries
and ONLY into white majority countries just happened to be what
liberals had wanted to do all along.
Once again, the only way to save the world was
to do what liberals had always wanted to do.
Now that Inevitable Future has died, too.
The runaway population expansion in the third world ended well over
a decade ago. Third world population is leveling out.
Another Inevitable Future is gone.
So now we need yet another Inevitable Future.
The next Inevitable Future must prove the same thing the last two
Inevitable Futures proved. It must show that the world
can only be saved if bureaucrats rule the world and the white race
Help Wanted! Fashionable Opinion
Needs Author for Next World Crisis Book!
The next crisis book will say that liberals
have to rule the world to save it from global warming or global
freezing or whatever. The new version of "Soylent Green"
will dramatize how the world will be destroyed because we have not
ratified some version of the Kyoto Treaty.
The Kyoto Treaty
would stop all development in white countries and let the third
world go for broke. Any version of the Kyoto Treaty,
no matter how you watered it down, would go a long way towards turning world economic
policy over to the bureaucrats and halting Western growth.
And turning the world over to bureaucrats is
what Fashionable Opinion is all about.
The media have hit Bush hard for not
negotiating some version of the Kyoto Treaty, so Bush has already
begun to cave in. Not one single member of the United States Senate
would dare support the present Kyoto Treaty, so all that Fashionable Opinion
asks is that we start taking it seriously again.
So Bush is starting to go back to negotiating
the Kyoto Treaty. But what is really needed is a book
that will get the yuppies howling for Kyoto and scaring Bush all the
way to the conference table.
Bush is on the run, but we still don't have the
book we need, the new "Soylent Green," the new "Population Bomb."
Hundreds of science fiction writers are out
there waiting waiting for somebody to put that book out so they can
put out little versions of it.
Everybody is waiting for the next Inevitable
Future, and the rewards being offered for it are stupendous.
Every movie about the Holocaust gets dozens of
awards. The professor at Emory who got fired
because his pro-gun control book was such a tissue of obvious lies
got lots of awards for it. Whoever writes the new
"professors must rule the world" and "The white race is the cancer
of history" book has fame and money and awards and professorships
lined up waiting for him.
Where is that book?
