The Fault
In Our Popcorn

Hey John, what is your reaction to the news that the Riverside district has chosen to ban TFIOS from middle school libraries on the grounds that it deals with mortality and sex? I remember your reactions to similar situations concerning your books have been pretty animated and wondered what you thought?

I guess I am both happy and sad.

I am happy because apparently young people in Riverside, California will never witness or experience mortality since they won’t be reading my book, which is great for them.

But I am also sad because I was really hoping I would be able to introduce the idea that human beings die to the children of Riverside, California and thereby crush their dreams of immortality.

Imagine a world where people only die if they know about death. 

(How quickly) would everyone become immortal? What do you think will happen? Will there come a point wherein everyone hides the the concept of death from a generation and the concept will die out? Can you even do that? You can’t teach any form of history, or even family trees, because every previous generation has died (what about pets and other animals? is it only human mortality that counts?). Infant mortality would drop to zero though. 

If people only can die if they know death exist, would anything change at all? 

And so a novel was born.

AND WHEN HE DIED CHUCK WAS MADE INTO THE NEW PROPHET AND THAT’S WHY HE NEVER HAD ANY MORE VISIONS

this could actually make tons of sense

Whoa. You just fucked up my brain.

i love how the daleks look exactly the same now as they did 50 years ago

but the cybermen, on the other hand,

look completely different

i guess you could say they upgraded

Cyber men’s society is based on making stuff better

Dalek society believes they are already the best they could be so why change
