The Landed Underclass thinks we ought to get off, too. Or, do something radical and quick. But maybe it’s more realistic for a proportion of humans, even if small, to leave for “other shores”. After all, that’s what we did before.
I don’t go for conspiracy theories, or for “world government” conspiracy theories. I don’t think the Fabianazis, indisputably and irremediably evil, murdering and wicked though they are, are sufficiently well advanced in their plans yet to consider this matter, even if they thought they were even to mean it literally, which I doubt.
I don’t even believe in the (Bob the) “Builder Burgers“. These are a fiction. It is just rich and powerful guys who want to get together and have a drink and a sexy f***, with girls who are specifically not their wives (just look at the wives and see why) in some nice hotels near to some good sources of the more pretty escort girls. Also if money is no object, so I guess the sex would be fairly OK. Why do you think that _”journal ists”_ are kept out? They fear the News of the World just as everyone does. (Tony, it’s your cue here to say if we are right or not.) But this planet may become too unpleasant for liberals, and in the not to distant future, mainly because we failed to see how serious the Enemy Class was, about reinstating slavery, feudalism, and pre-capitalist-neopastoralism, because it has so little imagination abour how it could survive in a real-world.
But the idea of confining, by orbital forts, the pre-capitalist population of bureaucrats – sadly plus those peoples who are too badly-armed or too sheeplike to oppose them – on Earth, while the rest of us leave, is an attractive one.
