it's incredibly bleak how many contemporary aspiring writers cut their teeth on fanfiction, a form that actively teaches you to write worse
You could also technically consider Paradise Lost, Divine Comedy, and The Aeneid fanfiction. Those famous pieces of literary garbage.
We don’t talk enough about how the only other time James Spader acted opposite RDJ, aside from “Avengers,” it was in “Less Than Zero,” playing a drug dealer who literally turns him out to give blowjobs in a Palm Springs hotel so he can pay off a cocaine debt.
I think this is why I see a lot of Silicon Valley types casting doubt on the existence of aliens. You might expect these space-loving rationalists to be into aliens, but aliens would actually prove that they are part of a primitive society rather than an advanced, unique one.
If Nathan actually knew any “Silicon Valley types” he’d know they’re the exact opposite, being more receptive than most to the idea of aliens/UFOs. Not endorsing the POV, but if you’re going to write nonsense, back it up with anything but utter bullshit you clearly just made up.
I think reluctance to believe in extraterrestrial life is part of neoliberal "end of history" ism. If the universe is teeming with life we haven't yet found, but could, it suggests that neoliberal capitalism is not our peak but is in fact a very primitive early historical state.
Siri, show me “last-ditch argument.”

I know this is hilarious to everyone, but the New Republic literally just concern trolled the fact that there was no framework or agency in place to regulate the increasing proliferation of satellites launched by (*gasp*) private space companies. Pick a lane.
