"Pointing out all the cool ideas in this book would mean a list a page long. There’s PyrE, the incendiary substance that explodes if you think at it just right. There’s a beautiful heartless Snow Maiden with coral eyes who can only see in the ends of the spectrum invisible to the rest of us. There are the cult of Skoptsis, who have for religious reasons had their entire sensory imputs cut off. There`s the radioactive spymaster with his skull-like face who can only speak with his beloved through a panel of lead glass three inches thick. There’s the pornography of taboo religion, the Cellar Christians. There’s the Burning Man (of course, at eleven I pictured the Human Torch in rags) who appears at critical moments like an inscrutable omen. There’s much more. Bester could have kept a magazine going for years by feeding out these concepts to different writers to develop into stories."

OK SOME REALLY SERIOUS SHIT IS HAPPENING IN NORTH KOREA
According to South Korean newspapers, last week the North Korean government PUBLICLY EXECUTED 80 people in 7 cities for watching South Korean/Western shows, movies, and videos, “pornography,” or possessing a Bible.
Apparently people’s attitudes and conformance are changing SO THIS IS HOW THE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO SUPPRESS DISOBEDIENCE
They allegedly herded 10,000 innocent civilians into a stadium where they were FORCED TO WATCH THE EXECUTIONS BY MACHINE GUN FIRE
THIS IS HONESTLY SOME HUNGER GAMES SHIT HAPPENING IN REAL LIFE RIGHT NOW

This is real oppression. All you whiney little bitches on here better take note and remember this when you think you’re oppressed because you can’t walk around half naked in fucking school.
