The Earthsea books by Le Guin, set in a high fantasy world following a boy from a village that later on became a far-flung wizard, tale-spun and song-sung in taverns and inns all across Earthsea. The wizards in that universe understood the importance of virginity, and sealed their libido under spells of chastity, living essentially in celibacy, though some have broken this seal to get children.

I found a PDF one time of a book "Die Nachtkinder" surprisingly it was in English about a man who worked menial jobs all day then daydreamed the rest of the day that he was a kid again going on adventures and redoing his life in several timelines he thought of. It sounds lame but it was very detailed and you could see how the daydreaming affected his personal life and psyche. I guess The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty would be similar. I haven't been able to find it again and that sucks, good book if you can find it.

I'm about 70 pages into Frank Herbert's "The White Plague," a science-fiction thriller about a man-made disease that kills all women in revenge for the death of the dark hero's wife. It's kind of boring, time-wasting, low focus reading like Tom Clancy, but I am getting tripped up in the details of genetic science. I wanted to try something standalone by the author before getting around to Dune. Frank is taking a very positive view of wifedom, but at least they are written like objects to be moved, demanded, and shuffled around as property in most cases. As a result of this protect-the-wife attitude they've spread the plague from the countries it was supposed to be limited to all over the world. One skump is supposed to be put into a vacumn chamber like you'd put a golf bag in the closet and it's entertaining me to imagine how that's going to turn out for her. The protagonist is pretty much Uncle Ted, if you're into that.

man without money (about a daniel suelo who lived in the desert and survives by eating dumpster food. he's kind of a normie in that he socializes with people, but he's gay. )

Americans say that the US debt doesn't matter because the debt doesn't need to be paid back, but would writing off a $22 trillion debt really have no consequences?

If debt doesn't matter, why not send every American a monthly check for $1 million?

Wouldn't Americans go hungry if they aren't repaid the money they lent the government?

Wouldn't China and Japan be angry if they didn't get their money back?

Wouldn't companies who loaned money to the government go bankrupt if US bonds became worthless?

Wouldn't laid-off workers stop paying their credit cards, mortgages, student loans, and car loans?

Wouldn't banks go bankrupt?

Do you think there would be bailouts, food stamps, and Social Security if the US government was bankrupt?

Would the US military be of much use if soldiers aren't getting paid?

What will you do when the US economy falls by half?

What will you do when your ATM doesn't work?

Do you think your bank account cannot be zeroed out?

What will you do when you see a starving man stab someone with a butter knife to steal a can of corn?

What will you think when the Gestapo shoots someone in the street?

Americans need to either stock up or go mobile and spread the word now.

The US Ponzi economy may last another 5, 10, or 30 years, but what you see outside and hear on the news might seem like two different things.

Do you think that the police state, wars, and debt are a coincidence?

Tyranny is really insidious. Commies and Nazis say Spain, North Korea, and the USSR were calm paradises under tyranny, but who wants to live in a prison?

Americans used to be taught to love morality, freedom, balanced budgets, and peace.

Now Americans are told to be immoral, and embrace tyranny, debt, and war.

People give up in police states.

Everything is illegal.

Why obey the law if the government and illegal immigrants don't?

Why try if the government has taken away your right to speak, protest, go to church, own a gun, have privacy, have property, be free from TSA groping, be free from extrajudicial assassination, be free torture, and be free from indefinite detention without trial?

You are just a slave now. Your life is over.

Why have free college if the government can just take everything you have?

When your life is a crime, who wouldn't embrace terrorism? Why not just destroy government property and kill government workers?

Just because things like tattoos, drugs, smoking, drinking, homosexuality, and prostitution should be legal doesn't mean people should embrace them.
