Why Sci-Fi Keeps Imagining the Subjugation of White People – Noah Berlatsky – The Atlantic

As much as the genre imagines the future, it also remixes the past—often by envisioning Western-style imperialism visited on the Western world.

Mostly bullshit, but a few points of minor interest.

Check out my new bestseller, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.com says: “Bill Quick has authored a terrific thriller that is also an all too plausible warning. Highly recommended!” Available in Kindle e-book or trade paperback formats.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Of course, not knowing that much about SF, he missed the work most clearly and overtly inspired by colonialism – Farnham’s Freehold. He says in his own writings that he was thinking of colonial scenes he had witnessed during his world travels.

    The stupidities of racism and the horrors of nuclear war are central themes, so of course that book is almost never referenced by the intelligentsia. It undermines their preferred narrative that Heinlein was a fascist.
