About Me

My photo
Lift your lamp beside the golden door, Break not the golden rule, avoid well the golden calf, know; not all that glitters is gold, and laissez faire et laissez passer [let do and let pass] but as a shining sentinel, hesitate not to ring the bell, defend the gates, and man the wall

DYSTOPIA
   
_______________________________________________________________________________________
1984 by George Orwell

The Fall Of An Empire 
by Abel Cain
_____________________________________________
A horrifying soul crushing odyssey through a madman's nightmarish imaginings for inhuman tyranny embodied in a quote therefrom-- " imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever". It is all the more disturbing that terms like "Orwellian" and "Doublespeak" can easily and accurately be applied to modern American politics, as demonstrated by a growing oblivious segment of society.
_____________________________________________
_____________________________________________
[unfinished readers impression] an interesting [if sometimes seemingly (inevitably) biased] perspective on the dystopic possibilities for the ever growing divides caused by Culturally pluralistic society that neither demands 
nor honors unity or even similarity beyond shallow tribalistic color and creed

Roman Nights by Ron Burns
_____________________________________________
An EXCELLENT Read, if excessively graphic at times, the plot and intrigue more than make up for it.
In Rome, A.D. 180. Stoic Severus Livinius at the bequest of a beautiful and troubled woman, reluctantly acts as an (outlawed) delatore [Detective] ending up often at [loathesome] nocturnal orgies, until Stoics start losing  their heads.
