Short Story: North Tonawanda, 2029

At first Segar was slightly amused when he heard about the housing track malfunctions, just like everybody else.

But when was that again? 


Five winters ago? 

How funny, he thought at the start: the rich and famous, trapped in their high-tech homes, sealed away from society. 

Why? Because they were uber paranoid or liked privacy or whatever. But maybe some of them didn’t know the capabilities of Gafegan and their assistants or managers set it up just in case.

But whatever the case, it was a glitch. Something in the code (maybe a misplaced letter?) that locked it down, never to start up again. 

But then more news came in, from the nursing homes, and the schools, and the colleges. 

And then there was a new world order within days.

Gay Men in America: The 2% in 2020

It's claimed that just above two percent of men in the United States are gay.

Another four percent of Americans are bisexual.

This, of course, has ramifications.

Nationalism, fascism, income inequality, racism and collectivism has divided the country since the 1980's.

These elements, in part, greatly accelerate as more people allow technology, social media and cell phones to take over their lives.

During this same era, the acceptance of gay men has drastically increased: favoring high class, masculine, blue-collar, European-American and college-educated guys in big cities.

Yes, federal marriage has been legal since 2015, but there are endless places where legalized homophobia occurs, oftentimes at the state or local level.

If this is not changed swiftly, the consequences will be serious, if not deadly.

Due to many factors, including spontaneous order, elements have aligned to allow us to directly impact issues that are important to us. That includes having a direct say in the type of immigrants allowed into the country, how religion should have no impact on laws, gun rights and full equality and protections - as all men deserve.

The next House of Representatives election will be held on November 3, 2020.

Short Story: The Great Reset


She waited outside the Kreuzberg bar nervously.

People were speaking Russian, German and English, but she couldn’t place the blonde girl as American or not.

“Entschuldigung,” was said quickly behind her and she was startled.

“Oh, sorry. Is English better?”

“Yes, please. I know my email was in Deutsch, aber Englisch ist meine Muttersprache.”

They went inside, ordered two drinks and sat near the large open window.

“How did you find us?”

“I pieced it together myself,” the American said nervously.

“At first, I was simply interested in the moon. So, I started to track its cycle. And then patterns seemed too coincidental. And then…”

That’s how it usually starts, the woman replied.

“And I suppose there’s no stopping it?”

“No.”

"And this is endless, right? What number are we in the cycle?"

The woman wanted to confirm her beliefs.

“Who knows. But what we do know, is the best place to stay when the world goes offline."

The German woman paused.

"And we want you to join us."
