Who By Fire?


Who by fire?



Michael Hastings:

Perhaps my 9 year old car is safer?

  1. A good mechanic could insert a "kill switch" in even a new automobile that the driver could resort to if the vehicle went out of control. And I assume that even the new cars still have an emergency brake. So with the switch, or better lever (mechanical rather than electrical), and the mechanical brake a person could escape from a hijacked automobile. I am sure that consultation with a trustworthy mechanic would give one real protection. My vehicle is an '81 Volvo. Of course the driverless car would work very well as a person could be kidnapped so easily then. Or used as a weapon. How trusting people are and with no good reason. Of course they can always help one commit suicide. Recently many doctors favoring alternative healing methods have committed suicide. Maybe there is an office of suicides that determines who will be next. Bankers at the moment seem to be leading in this category especially the ones in on the Libor rate tweaking. Interestingly there was virtually no evidence that Hasting car crashed accidentally!

    1. An office of suicides that determines whose next?

      That sounds like a dystopic science fiction narrative!

      Unfortunately, dystopic elements described in 20th century science fiction seem now far too prescient.

    2. One of the aforementioned doctors, a man, was shot at some distance and yet it was originally ruled a suicide; the family hired a detective and a forensic pathologist who proved otherwise. The police can not be that stupid. A shadowy element of the CIA? Dr John Lily had ECCO: "Earth Coincidence Control Office". So more formally I should have considered Earth Suicide Control Office. It has become ridiculous how often deaths are immediately rendered suicide after a few hours--especially of people who gave no indication of having such feelings like the DC Madame. I am intrigued by the idea of a simple shut off lever for a newer vehicle that involves nothing electronic but cuts the gas off. Still there are still bombs placed under the driver's seat and so on.

  2. Thanks William and majia. Great reading! Science fiction has been a vehicle for activism and satire for a long time. From swifts liliputions to Vonnegut's ice 9.
