Scott's List of Proud Patrons



About the Patreon Contretemps [ Dec 18, 2018 ]

Scott here.

Patreon's recent moves to de-platform some popular YouTube personalities who have upset a censorious subset of progressives has alarmed all of us who value an ethic of open discussion, even when opinions expressed are sometimes quite difficult to tolerate. Maybe especially then.

I have had several Patrons drop out of the system and ask me to set up an account with an alternative subscriber service. However, there seems to be a Twitter-based activist group of "Social Justice Warriors" which can attack and shut down alternative services lest they become a haven for the wrong crowd. Maker-Support and SubscribeStar have both fallen victim to these racketeers.

Now, I know that some of my readers are here because they like my politics, but many others don't care about the politics but enjoy the stories. And all of you are important to me. But some of you want an alternative subscription service and I am open to any such that seems able to withstand assaults from the Blue Meanies. I have word of such a system in the works and will adopt it quickly if it pans out.

I'm also following Minds.com and Steamit.com, which offer a means for people to support creators, but they deal in crypto-currencies, which at present are not as easy for most people to deal with as their national currencies. But new innovations may change this, so I haven't written them off either.

In the meanwhile, I'm sticking with Patreon, out of financial necessity. If and when I make a move to either add an alternate service or replace Patreon, I will announce it here and elsewhere. And I understand those of you who cannot bring yourselves to consider supporting me through Patreon and will happily welcome you back when I can offer you a better choice.

Thanks for hanging in there with me!

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
In the dining area aboard the Cissonius, Nicole and Pearl Arthur sit at a table as the android chef we saw a few strips back, Miz Beazley, is warming their coffee. They have desert plates, partly eaten, in front of them. Nicole has a melancholy look about her.
Caption: The dining deck:
Nicole: So I've often had weird dreams, but a few of them have been, well, prophetic.
Nicole: Like, when that fool Philbert ran out on me.
Panel 2
Closer 2-shot of Nicole and Pearl
Nicole: Or when those uniformed thugs on Luna caged and and tortured me.
Nicole: The night before I left L-5 City I dreamt of being kidnapped and held for ransom.
Panel 3
Nicole and Pearl
Pearl: You dreamt this would happen on Luna?
Nicole: No well, I'm not sure. The location in the dream was vague. But the faces and some of the other details ...
Panel 4
Nicole and Pearl
Pearl: Surely you don't actually believe in prophetic dreams.
Nicole: No-no, I'm a naturalist, through and through. But I can't honestly deny the dreams happened.
Panel 5
Nicole and Pearl
Pearl: So you were talking about a new dream you've had that's troubling you?
Nicole: Yeah it was it was like I was living through the Calamities.
Nicole: A great darkness spread all over everything, and every one.

Panel 6
Pearl is intrigued.
Pearl: The Calamities! That was four and a half centuries ago!
Nicole: Yeah, and I was on Terra, too. I think. Not sure what city.
Nicole: But people were starving, and there was rioting and martial law.

Panel 7
Pearl and Nicole
Pearl: I've seen the docu-vids, haven't you? It was a horrible time.
Nicole: Sure, I saw them. But well, the dream didn't feel like one of those vids.
Nicole: It was a lot more visceral a constant fear of immanent death.
Panel 8
Pearl and Nicole
Pearl: Lots of people have nightmares about the Calamities, after seeing the vids.
Nicole: Yeah, but this one is different.
Nicole: Because I kept hearing Seamus' voice telling me, 'When I say run, run!'
