Heinlein`s Children


As a science fiction writer, Robert A. Heinlein (1907-88), was accused of giving harmful guidance to children on the path to becoming adult. However, if children behave like the adults they find in fiction, they won`t live, which is how children become adults; by not following the behavior patterns prescribed for them in fiction by adults. Fictional representations of adult activities aren`t peaceful, whereas what children want, and indeed represent, is peace. Consequently, childhood is peace disturbed by adults, who want the child to behave in accordance with the fiction that adult behavior will assist them to live, whereas the behavior prescribed in fiction as `adult` will more than likely result in a child`s early death, which suggests adults want neither children nor peace for them. British science fiction writer, Arthur C. Clarke, wrote the novel, Childhood`s End (1953), which depicts an alien race of `Overlords`,1 who resemble the traditional fallen angels of Christian tradition with leathery wings, cloven hooves, and horns. The Overlords take over the running of the Earth and prepare the human species to join the `Overmind`, an amalgamated cosmic intelligence comprised of the people of ancient civilizations, who were once corporeal, but are now free from material bodies. No more children are born, and many parents commit suicide. A column of energy ascends from the Earth to conjoin with the Overmind, and the Earth disappears in a flash of light, which is what the Overlords supervise.



 Robert A. Heinlein`s juvenile series of novels for children began with Rocket Ship Galileo (1947), a tale of Nazis defeated on the moon, and after thirteen books, concluded with Starship Troopers (1959), a war against an alien `bug` invasion of the Earth by arachnoids. Starship Troopers was succeeded by a supposedly more `adult` narrative, which had begun as a juvenile, Stranger In A Strange Land (1961), about a future Messiah similar to Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity, with his teaching that became the theme of the New Testament of the Bible: `Love your neighbor as you love yourself.` (Mk: 12. 31) Heinlein`s Valentine Michael Smith is important in the literature of science fiction, because he represents many of the aspects of Jesus` life and teaching. Although Jesus was born in Palestine during its occupation by the Roman Empire, Smith was born on Mars and was educated by Martian `Old Ones`, who like Clarke`s Overlords believed in `discorporation`, that is, the body was a preamble to an adulthood apart from the material universe, so death was a goal for children, rather than their end.



 Born of his mother, the Virgin Mary, uncontaminated by male semen, Jesus was `woman`s seed`. Those women who self-fertilize from their own penis` semen are termed `futanarian`, and although Jesus` mother, the Virgin Mary, isn`t represented as futanarian in the Old Testament of the Bible of the `chosen people` of the Jews, which is the Talmud and Torah, that is, their history and law, Jesus` birth uncontaminated by male semen is futanarian. In Christian iconography Jesus` mother, the Virgin Mary, is depicted crushing the head of the serpent with her foot, because she represents futanarian `woman`s seed`. When the first woman, Eve, encountered the fallen angel, Satan, in the paradise of heaven on Earth, he`d been transformed into a serpent by God for rejecting God`s plan that the human host should be greater than the angelic. Tempting Eve to `eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil`, that is, death, Satan told her, and the first man, Adam: `You shall be as gods.` (Gen: 3. 5) Eve and Adam accepted ephemerality for their children in exchange for the power of war, that is, Satan had the role of one of Clarke`s Overlords.

 God told Eve her `seed` would have Redemption but there`d be `enmity` between hers and the serpent`s: `You will crush the head of the serpent with your foot, but he will bruise your heel.` (Gen: 3. 15) In other words, the brainpower of futanarian `woman`s seed` would prove stronger and humanity would escape from its overlords to colonize the planets amongst the stars of heaven above the Earth through starships of the species of women`s own devising. Taken to the hill of Calvary where he was nailed to a cross of wood, and left to die as a `dissident` against the male braining Empire of Rome, Jesus experienced Resurrection and Ascension to heaven as a figure of futanarian `woman`s seed` escaping from her overlords: `The dragon was wroth with the woman and went to make war on the remnant of her seed.` (Rev: 12. 17) Because the Mesozoic (20 m. a.) period of Earth`s history was saurian, it seems likely that winged reptiles were the angelic intelligences described in Judeo-Christianity as the heavenly host of God, while the fallen angels denote degenerate intelligence concerned to establish slavery of women`s futanarian species through war against her human race in order to maintain their position as overlords.

 Although Jesus` role is to illustrate the absence of `woman`s seed` for the sexual reproduction between women of human brainpower to take her species to colonize the planets amongst the stars of heaven above in starships of her brains` own devising, the philosophy of Heinlein`s Messiah, Valentine Smith, is more typical of Clarke`s Overmind. Towards the end of Stranger In A Strange Land Smith is `discorporated` by a mob: ``Lynch him! Give the bastard a nigger necktie!` A heavy-gauge shotgun blasted at close range and Mike's right arm was struck off at the elbow and fell. It floated gently down, then came to rest on the cool grasses, its hand curved open in invitation.`2 Smith`s beatific attitude reflects Heinlein and Clarke`s understanding of the Overlords and the Overmind: `Through bruised and bleeding lips he smiled at them, looking straight into the camera with an expression of yearning tenderness on his face. Some trick of sunlight and stereo formed a golden halo back of his head. `Oh my brothers, I love you so! Drink deep. Share and grow closer without end. Thou art God.`` Smith`s discorporation is a parody of Jesus` Ascension, because the Overlords are the fathers that want the nothingness of the Overmind for their children, which is the difficulty for science fiction writers ostensibly writing bildungsroman for adolescent readers looking to grow beyond acceptance of death.

 Heinlein`s first juvenile, Rocket Ship Galileo, is interesting because it deals with the socio-historical and religious phenomenon of the German National Socialist (Nazi) Party, which came to power in the election of 1933 when its leader Adolf Hitler assumed dictatorship and began to plan the pogroming of the Jews. Hitler`s Nazis built `concentration camps` and fought a global war while upwards of 20, 000, 000 Jews were exterminated and incinerated in what became `death camps` for the `chosen people` of the Bible incarcerated as `spies`. In Rocket Ship Galileo Nazis are discovered on the moon planning to launch an attack upon the Earth, which is foiled by Heinlein`s young heroes. Although Nazism seems far distant from Jesus` time and the Empire of Rome`s occupation of Jewish Palestine, the Roman symbol of authority, the fasces, was adopted by the Nazis from Italy`s dictator, Benito Mussolini, who`d assumed power in Rome after the election of 1922. The symbol of the bundle of wood with an axe in the center represented the Roman planners, who cut wood to build a hide, and behind which they planned the construction of camps during the expansion of Rome`s Empire. Consequently, fascism was a movement against Jesus` `seed`, begun by the Romans and continued by the Nazis.

 Just as Rocket Ship Galileo featured the boys` mentor, Dr Cargraves, Heinlein`s last juvenile continued the `car` theme in its featuring of the character, Carmen Ibanez, who is described as a `mother`, because she`s a starship pilot dropping her `boy sons` on the home world of the arachnoid `bugs`, Klendathu, where they fight and die. In the movie made from Heinlein`s novel, Starship Troopers (1997), actress Denise Richards stars in the role of Carmen, and it`s a typically adult scenario of children being fed to the machine guns by their fathers as `cannon fodder`. Actor Neil Patrick Harris says so, in his role of Colonel Carl Jenkins: `We're in this war for the species, boys and girls. It's simple numbers. They have more. And every day I have to make decisions that send hundreds of people like you to their deaths.`3 Familiar to those who know anything about the first world war (1914-18) with the German Empire`s ambition of slavery for Europe and the rest of humanity, Starship Troopers represents the fathering of boy sons, that is, `poisons`, who`re dropped by `mothers` to their deaths, because that`s the pattern of human behavior advocated by the supervising Overlords in respect of the nihilism of the Overmind they serve: `One day, someone like me is going to kill you and your whole fucking race!`4 The irony of course is that the extrapolated arachnoid enemy species is `woman`s seed` suppressed by male semen so that the fathers can keep poisoning the Earth in male braining.



 In parasitology, the parasite that emerges from the host womb to devour it is termed `parasitoid`: `When you battle 6 trillion enemies that will eat you alive, there are only two rules ... EVERYONE FIGHTS. NO ONE QUITS.` Because women can sexually reproduce with each other, whereas parasitoid men can`t, Heinlein`s eight limbed arachnoid aliens are an extrapolation of how women engage in a sexual reproduction of the human race that`s exponential, whereas men are her parasitoid enslavers. Written in 1947, Rocket Ship Galileo is infused with the optimism born of the age of the car, that is, Heinlein`s rocketeer, Dr Cargraves, together with the youths that make up the crew of the Galileo, look forward to the age of space travel. The first car mass produced in the United States of America, the Model-T Ford, came off the Henry Ford manufacturing plant`s production line in Detroit, Michigan, in 1908. However, by the time Starship Troopers was written in 1959, Heinlein`s perception that space travel represented the grave of the car, had evolved into the idea of fathers, who drove cars and left poisons, that is, boy sons, like pollutants hanging in the air above planets, because they didn`t want a future for their children apart from their supervising of them as Overlords nihilistically obsessed with their Overmind`s nothingness.

 Although Starship Troopers wasn`t a made for `TV` movie, in a sense it was, because the Romans had been manufacturing men and women as a single male brained creature wearing each others` clothes in `TV` transvestism since the ancient Roman Empire`s building of huge amphitheaters inside which its alien parasitoid devouring consciousness watched the `remnant` of human futanarian `woman`s seed` kill itself for its pleasure. Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation (2004) was a `TV` film made for transmission by the television `TV` machine invented by John Logie Baird in 1926 as a home entertainment medium that largely supplanted the appeal of film theaters for the parasitoid public mind, and which had been built to serve the US movie industry centered around Hollywood, Los Angeles, on the west coast of California after director, D. W. Griffith, made the first film there, Old California, in 1910. Although the Nazi pogromers of the Jewish `chosen people` with their futanarian tradition of `woman`s seed` took center stage in the supposed war against fascism in the 1930s until the end of the second world war (1939-45), President of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA), Will Hays` establishment of the `Hays code` (1930) was a step towards the banning of human sexual reproduction from the movie screens as fascist as anything the Nazis envisioned: `... women, in love scenes, at all times have `at least one foot on the floor` (in other words, no love scenes in bed).`5 Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation premiered on Encore Action on April 24, 2004, and was released on DVD on June 1, 2004, to be watched as a recording bought by the `TV` viewer. The troopers face a new arachnoid, a `bug` that infests the human body by entering through the mouth and propagating inside the brain. At first Private Lei Sahara`s hallucinations are blamed on her pregnancy, which affords another neat opportunity to condemn women`s species of futanarian `woman`s seed` for wanting sex without men, who actually transmit the `incurable killer disease`, HIV/AIDS, in rejection of women for homosexuality`s mixing of blood, shit and semen in each others` anuses.



 The human immuno-deficiency virus (HIV) results in acquired immuno-deficiency syndrome (AIDS) inducing systemic collapse of the organs before infecting and killing the brain of the victim. Although human society has been taught that homosexuality is merely an acceptable sexual preference, in ancient Greece host womb slavery of women in homosexuality and pederasty for the spread of the contagion of war against `woman`s seed` was institutionalized. Consequently, HIV/AIDS is men`s `biological weapon` keeping women in fearful faithfulness to the ring slavery of the parasitoid devouring her species in war against her. Actor David Wells, in the role of a recruiting sergeant, makes it explicit for actress Coleen Porch in the role of Lei Sahara: `We need fresh meat for the grinder.`6 Starship Troopers 3: Marauder was released directly onto the recorded home entertainment medium of DVD for purchase by viewers as an owned movie on August 5, 2008. The Mobile Infantry (M.I.) are supported at home by a government suppression of seditionists, which echoes the suppression of the Jewish `dissident` Jesus, and the subsequent Nazi pogroms against the Jews in the middle of the 20th century as `spies`, because of course the arachnoid aliens are spi-ders extrapolated from human women`s futanarian capacity to exponentially reproduce their own brains` powers as an antidote to men`s viral form.



 In his role of Sky Marshal, Omar Anoke, actor Steven Hogan, ostensibly embraces the arachnoids` religion in an attempt to make peace between `the bugs` and the Terran Federation: `I have made this great journey. I have evolved. I have sacrificed all so that I may create with you a great peace. And they're fucking it up!`7 After Omar Anoke`s popular arrival on planet Roku San, an attack by the arachnoids is attributed to Anoke`s deliberately collapsing the base`s defenses, because of what religious trooper, actress Marnette Patterson`s in her role as Holly Little, identifies as a contaminating telepathic rapport between Anoke and the arachnoid `Brain of Brains` which, like the Overlords and the Overmind in Clarke`s Childhood`s End, effectively usurps human consciousness: `It's the wrong God!`8 Returning from Roku San, Anoke and actress Jolene Blalock as Captain Lola Beck find themselves marooned on a planet, OM-1, while actress Amanda Donohoe, as Admiral Phid, ignores their distress signal. Anoke is subsequently killed in a terrorist attack staged by the government of the Terran Federation to discredit `peace protestors`, and dozens hang. New Sky Marshal, Admiral Phid, impressed with the way Anoke was rendered servile by the arachnids religion, decides to adopt a Christian-esque version. Those protesting that they want peace are labeled warlike and executed as unlovable.



 The war against `woman`s seed` extrapolated as `bugs` is a metaphor for homosexuality in pederasty`s `biological war` against the human futanarian race of women`s, which in the late 20th century was characterized by the HIV/AIDS paradigm. HIV/AIDS was translated as `bad machine code` by the `geek` successors to the Greek`s `biological weapon`. The geeks` sought to deploy their `Trojan virus` to infect computer brains to prevent the human race from running its own program, and rather have it succumb to the new pogroming against the peaceful, that is, the children, which is what Amanda Donohoe`s new Sky Marshal character at the close of Starship Troopers 3: Marauder stands for. In simple terms, for Donohoe`s Phid, religion approximates to a `snuff vid`, where `snuff` is the term used to describe that illegal genre of recorded entertainment, which is the real life recording of killings for the parasitoid alien to enjoy, and has been encouraged in homes since the invention of the DVD to make home-made pornography and `snuff films` feasible: `Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did.`9 Pop singer Elton John`s `Candle In The Wind` (1973) lament for Hollywood sex symbol, Marilyn Monroe, who was found dead in the nude in 1962, reflects upon the penislessness and brainlessness of the human race, `snuffed` like a candle flame by its parasitoid killers filming the extinction of `woman`s seed` for its pleasure.

 A huge hollow wooden horse, known as the `Trojan horse`, was the method by which the Greeks captured the city of Troy, as narrated by the poet, Homer, in his Iliad (760-10 B.C.). Left outside the gates of the city the horse was taken in by the Trojans, where the Greeks emerged to enslave the host wombs of the women for homosexuality in pederasty and war against `woman`s seed` to spread their contagion further: `Beware Greeks bearing gifts.`10 Starship Troopers extrapolates men`s desire for invasion into women`s being inaccurately presented as alien `bugs`, because invasion is how men`s viral form spreads. Consequently, the films, and personal computer games deriving from those who hold the franchise on Heinlein`s Starship Troopers, illustrate how patterns of adult behavior, prescribed for children to emulate in fiction, are lethal towards those who seek to live, rather than die.

 Starship Troopers 4: Invasion is a Japanese-American 2012 computer animated film released as a direct-to-video title in Japan on July 21, 2012, and in North America on August 28, 2012. The action consists in killing a `bug` queen bent on crashing a hijacked starship, John A. Warden, into Paris, but the interesting feature is of the developing of mind power by the Terrans to control `the bugs`. Minister of Paranormal Warfare, Carl Jenkins, voiced by Justin Doran, directs `bugs` to assist in the killing of the queen. Because invaded queens aren`t invasive kings, the attribution of a devouring parasitoid evil alien nature to females is symptomatic of an endemic misogyny manifest as xenophobia in the Starship Troopers fictional universe, that is, a supposedly adult genre that`s life-threatening to children who`re trained in militarism to espouse it as a pattern for universally successful human action.

 That peacefulness is childlike, and therefore foolish, is a poison endemic in modern civilization, culture and art. Inculcating the desire to kill, even vicariously, isn`t the way to develop children into adults: `Darkness is your friend. Whatever you do, don't turn on the lights.`12 In the `PC game`, Starship Troopers: The Terran Ascendancy (2000), the recovery of ancient teleportation equipment is essential to the `game`. The `hive` on the `bug` home world, Klendathu, is penetrated, and the M.I. plant bombs. On New Year`s Day, 2372, the Terran military celebrates its victory, but humans would want their children to have something better to do with teleporters capable of transmitting people to distances as far away as the surface of a nearby world, rather than have fathers explain their adult behavior pattern to the latest generation of `cannon fodder`; for the alien parasitoid devourer to enjoy watching itself being killed: so that it can die. Starship Troopers: The Terran Ascendancy isn`t `pc`, that is, it isn`t `politically correct`, because it isn`t for humans, and it purports to be about humans, whereas it`s actually for alien Overlords, who of course want humans to be at peace with the Overmind.
