I am loving rss feeds again. I stopped using one around the time google reader died, but I started again because I was tired of having stuff I viewed be recommendations rather than stuff I actually subscribed to. I def have to be careful about overdoing it with the feeds, but right now I have a good amount of articles and content to choose from without being overwhelmed.
Always cool to be reminded of Moebius’ work, but can you imagine what Dune may have been like if this film version had come to fruition? “In 1975 the cartoonist Jean Giraud, a.k.a. Moebius, was in Paris collaborating with Alejandro Jodorowsky on the never-completed adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel Dune, a project that at various times involved H.R. Giger, Mick Jagger, Salvador Dalí, Orson Welles, Udo Kier, Gong, and Pink Floyd.“
If you are not a member of the upper class, the only difference between various forms of work is the level of marginalization and desperation. But it's all survival work. And you're still beholden to the rich.

@BridgeSight lots of solarpunk does that and I love it for that. it runs on the premise that... y'know. we -haven't- fucked ourselves into oblivion. That even if we've brought ourselves to the Mad Max-esque brink, we can still pull ourselves back with the proper use of science and resource redistribution.
And it -is- punk. So to some degree it assumes that at the very least, corporate greed has been largely curtailed, or at most abolished entirely.
Ok, setting idea. There is a vast republic. Each planet gets to send in a number of representatives in proportion to their population. However, this means that the sparsely inhabited boarder regions tend to get abandoned when tough times come. Tough times have been around for a while, and the newly elected Monarch sends out small bands of skilled beings-at-arms to assess and assist this outer regions.
