Anybody pre-ordering Laurie Penny's new novel "Everything Belongs to the Future"?
>Time is a weapon wielded by the rich, who have excess of it, against the rest, who must trade every breath of it against the promise of another day’s food and shelter. What kind of world have we made, where human beings can live centuries if only they can afford the fix? What kind of creatures have we become? The same as we always were, but keener.
>In the ancient heart of Oxford University, the ultra-rich celebrate their vastly extended lifespans. But a few surprises are in store for them. From Nina and Alex, Margo and Fidget, scruffy anarchists sharing living space with an ever-shifting cast of crusty punks and lost kids. And also from the scientist who invented the longevity treatment in the first place.
FUCK THIS FEMINIST KEK
DON'T POST THIS HERE
SHE IS A MENTALLY ILL LEFTIST WHO IS FOR THE INCLUSION OF MUSLIMS and interracial relationships.
She has absolutely no problem with degenerate homosexuality and wishes to destroy an imaginary "patriarchy".
Take this shit to tumblr, it doesn't belong here!
Isn't she just a meme? I never even heard of her until I started posting here. Also that synopsis sounds like the plot to a shitty movie I'd watch drunk and laugh at. Definitely not reading the book.
>After Cologne, we can't let the bigots steal feminism
Why are you letting the bigots steal Feminism, /lit/?
Protip: It's shills like you who don't want to make lit great again and want to shutdown any threats that are outside your overton window. Sorry if we triggered you but I suggest you realize muh womyn authors are open game in terms of criticism.
>we have mods now
most Laurie threads as an excuse for writing BDSM stories. you go run screaming to the mods you might have to read something you don't like, tell them about this fanny hill nonsense cleland got past the censors too.
I would think someone who actually went to Oxford would know better than the 'le ultra rich' meme. The rich UK families send their kids to good but less selective universities.
>What kind of creatures have we become? The same as we always were, but keener.
Is one of the worst lines from a teaser summary I have ever read.
There was some person who became mildly famous in the uk bacause they did recipes for people on benefits or something and I always assumed it was Laurie Penny and she was just slowly gliding down from that fame, taking it as far as she could. I was wrong and now need to know how the fuck she is famous? Like she's so fucking stupid I couldn't have imagined her ideas actually got her to the place she's at, I thought she was like emma watson or some shit... fuck...
she started working for NS as teen so it is a bit like emma watson. that franchise carried her into adult life where she's trying to make adult choices but also hasn't had to develop because there's no way NS is dropping her now unless she rapes like 20 kids. even then, it might just result in an editorial.
>i'm the arbiter of canon
tough shit, you're the one whose entire argument is /pol/. I don't like Penny, but I'm not going to pretend that she doesn't have a publishing deal just because spergers like you think your view of politics matters more than reality. it just doesn't, and you should fuck off to /pol/ if all you're interested in is political grandstanding. she's a writer of influence, you don't have to like her for that to be true at all, and your brain is too broken by /pol/ to read /lit/ if you think otherwise
>she's a writer of influence
Nobody outside of internet cliques gives a shit about any of these people.
I wish this shit was fucking bannable.
m8, she writes for major publications. this is like saying that either hitchens isn't a writer of influence. get your head out of your own ass and realise that having more books deals than john green is a sign of industry support.
>she's a writer of influence,
When she begged her Twitter followers to spam 5 star reviews on the Amazon page for the book, she couldn't even match the number of 1 stars being spammed by the trolls
She doesn't really have that many friends
Oh wait, spoke too soon, it took her two years but she managed to bring it up to 3.4 stars
it's more like we need a feminist for our debate/ tv show but the intellegent ones aren't desperate enough to appear on 'Danny Dyer's: Is gender a social construct, you cunt?' on at 2pm on a tuesday
didn't hitchens ask his fans to spam kissinger the war criminal? and still no court date for kissinger. we'll erase hitchens from history since he obviously didn't have enough "friends".
so? half this board doesn't know who apollonius of tyana was, it didn't remove him from history.
Face it, you're a retard with a hate-boner for a nobody hack. You're not going to convince anyone that you have anything worthwhile to say. Maybe someone on /pol/ or /r9k/ would jerk you off out of sympathy but no one's going to validate your retardation here.
I posted some of those 'troll' comments, but they were sincere.
She's part of the feminist movement which is financed and propagated by Judaic Marxists who wish for the proletariat to seize the means of production and overthrow the current mode of production by implementing communism.
In this way, the Jews -- who own everything -- will lose their privileged position as the ones who benefit most from the capitalist economic system UNTIL -- in a communist-feminist society -- Jewish lizard aliens (the far removed cousins of the earthly variety) will come down and join forces with the bolshevik Judaic feminists.
It is precisely in a communist society -- where people are equal and race-mixing is okay and women have power too -- that population control and harvesting of humans becomes easy for the lizardian Jews who will become our new overlords.
Take the redpill
I don't have a hate boner for her. I don't like her, but I find it much more disturbing that people can't accept she's a writer with a wide public reach and long history of publication. It's the exact same as if you tried to retcon reality for any other author, whether I liked them or not: it makes it seem like your hate boner is so hard you can't tell reality from your fantasy world where all that matters is your opinion. It's asking for the same kind of echochamber I dislike Penny for, so I think you're just as much a narcissist as her, but a slightly dumber one since you couldn't get a publishing deal and think anyone will listen to your version of history where Penny doesn't have a publishing deal. Unfortunately for you, she does have a publishing deal and a lengthy history of publication, so she is /lit/
It doesn't make her work good, but denying that she's a writer of note just makes you look like an idiot whose feels matter more than reality.
try the redpill and see how deep the rabbit hole goes, goy
the lizards are out there
i want to live forever
i don't believe in anything other than my oppression on earth. i have nothing to look forward to in life or the afterlife.
if i die, i am removed from my oppression. i am removed from the condition that defines me as a being. without oppression, i never existed.
likewise, rupert murdoch and his ilk MUST exist in perpetuity to oppress countless future generations and give their lives meaning through ceaseless oppression.
some part of me wants to break the cycle but i can't. if oppression ends, i end.
Laurie Penney is a great big fat British woman. She'd pin you down and force you to kiss her on the mouth. Her flabby fat arms would be cold and mushy against yours and her flapjack tits would slam onto your kitchen table every morning like someone dropping a phonebook. That would be your life.
You'd like to think so, but there are legitimately retards out there who unironically believe those sorts of things. Go to godlikeproductions one of these days if you want to see some of them in their natural habitat.
Are you implying that there aren't several shills being paid by the Israeli-Jewish-bolshevik lobby to point fun of /pol/ beliefs on /lit/ on a daily basis?
Ah, the naive bluepilled mind strikes again
i could ask the same people about the iliad or paris review, but you'll start crying precious tears
new statesman is a major publication. it's not going to stop being one because of laurie penny.
don't worry i know you don't know what the new republic is to get a joke about stephen glass so i won't make one, butyour need to bring down a publication as a whole so you don't have to cop penny might have an audience is very funny when you bump her threads.
>Joe created the only civilization left
>Furiosa realizes how much she fucked up
>Goes back to the civilization built for her
How dumb is Laurie. HOW.
new statesman guest editors i can think of off the top of my head
>rowan "the wizard of canterbury" williams
I could go on and list the authors and people it's featured over the years like Ted Hughes, or David Lynch, or Christopher Hitchens, or Alex Ferguson, but you seem to think that you're an expert on a magazine you've never heard of so why don't you tell me about the traction of Marxism against Trotskyites at the paper since the Orwell problem back in the 30s?
Fucking pseud idiots think that intelligence can be made up things they saw in head pictures.
that's, uh, that's actually a pretty adequate reread.
don't know how i missed that the first time.
>important guest editors make a mag relevant
>not circulation or recognition
By god, what sort of weird fantasy world you live in. The only pseud I see here is you with your asinine metrics
aand now time for the new republic was the official magazine of air force one joke.
its online readership is massive and it has been the periodical of the left since the belle epoque upped and died. you're literally so ignorant of so much of english writing since the first world war by making this argument, i'm tempted to tell you the russian monarchy's still going
I was reluctant to see the movie, because of all the feminist ass kissing it was doing. Saw it, and laughed at the end by how "non-feminist" it was. Feminists saw "strong independent women dat dont need no man", surface level shit, glossy over key parts in the movie.
Also, all those old bitches ruined their promised land. Joe was the only one to do it right.
No, I like my near future sensationalism exclusively with a distinctly white male gaze to be honest.
