Heinlein, Starship Troopers and pragmatism
Jim Wright is a retired US Navy Chief Warrant Officer who writes a personal site over at Stonekettle Station. You should go cruise through his back catalog, but today’s post is really interesting: discussing political pragmatism through the lens of Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers.
S. — my soon-to-be–11-year-old — is getting to the point where she’s reading more science fiction. She loved The Martian and is about to start on Rendezvous with Rama (thanks, Russ!). She read Ender’s Game and really enjoyed it. I’m going to re-read my Heinlein and see if she’s ready for it.
