When men are scalzied manboobs and women are manjawed feminists, the bedroom is an arid wasteland of dashed passion.
Inwardly Scalzi is a reactionary, in that he despises democracy and supports war and colonialism, but is terrified lest our masters detect his evil thoughts.
Because of crimestop, an author can get away with a lot of thoughtcrime without our masters noticing. See “District 9” for a spectacular example. The movie is a lecture that it is the duty of the superior race to rule the inferior, and failure to do so results not only in disaster for the superior, but considerably worse disaster for the inferior. Progressives totally failed to notice the message, for to notice it would be indication of agreeing with it. Scalzi allows himself a little bit of thoughtcrime in his novels, but not nearly as much as he could easily get away with.
