Kudos to a Great Graphic Artist Rubin Bolling: Alternative MAUS Hits Home
-by Ptera Hunter Among the best responses that I have seen to date about the recent mashugana decision by the Tennessee School Board to ban a book about the holocaust (because a cartoon mouse shows a breast) comes from graphic artist Ruben Bolling (a.k.a., Tom the Dancing Bug.) One of Mr. Bolling’s most recent parodies,Continue reading “Kudos to a Great Graphic Artist Rubin Bolling: Alternative MAUS Hits Home”
Tennessee School Board Bans MAUS Over a Naked Mouse.
an editorial by our writer, Circa24, author of Silent Consent Now, in 2022, the Tennessee school board wishes to ban Maus by Art Spiegelman (1980). It claims that it doesn’t mind people learning about the Shoah, as long as it’s sanitized! “A naked” picture in the Pulitzer-winning graphic novel Maus displays one character after herContinue reading “Tennessee School Board Bans MAUS Over a Naked Mouse.”
Plastics and Their Role in Silent Consent
A recurring theme in Silent Consent by Circa24 is the damage done to the future generations from the plastics that made much of the carbon era so remarkable. Plastics, as we know them, have become rare strategic materials in the Founder’s States of that book.

Some Paint Choices That Can Cut Your Carbon Footprint and Reduce Your Chemical Usage.
Silent Consent looks at a dystopian world where easy access to energy and power has become part of our past. Although fiction, its prediction of a polarized world is very plausible. A caste system with a few powerful elites have controlled many of the pre-carbon era civilizations. The many others, who serve as their energyContinue reading “Some Paint Choices That Can Cut Your Carbon Footprint and Reduce Your Chemical Usage.”

Among humans, war is typically fought to gain control of resources. The Nazis’ moved against the Soviet Union and waged war in North Africa primarily to gainContinue reading “Population and Violence?”
On Track for a Societal Collapse Soon
One of the things we look for in good science is the ability to make predictions. In 1972, an MIT team modeled twelve different possible scenarios for the future based upon different responses to the environment. Since then, we have followed the BAU2 (Business as Usual) scenario. Based upon our desire for continued economic growth,Continue reading “On Track for a Societal Collapse Soon”
Ravensbrück served as a Nazi concentration camp exclusively for women. An estimated 130,000 women were interned there during the Nazi era, and between 30,000 and 50,000 women died there. It was one of the smaller camps. That did not make it any less horrific. There, women were used like horses, pulling heavy equipment. With sheerContinue reading “Remembering Ravensbrück”
The Colorado River Is In Trouble. The great river of the American West has headwaters in the marshes created by the snow-melts at La Poudre Pass (Colorado). Soon afterwards, the water diversion projects begin. These water fields and provide life to communities. Before leaving the Coyote Valley in Rocky Mountain National Park (also Colorado), aboutContinue reading “Water Troubles”
How many slaves do you have?
The first national remembrance of Juneteenth has come and gone in the United States. But, if you thought that slavery ended with the Emancipation Proclamation or with the condemnation of slavery by the United Nations, think again. Mauritania had legal slavery until 1981, and after its abolition, it imposed no penalties for it until 2007.Continue reading “How many slaves do you have?”
