Logan’s Run–here we come!

Posted on Updated on

One of the first films I disctincly remember seeing as a youth is Logan’s Run. The movie’s based on a novel by the same name, written by William F. Nolan and George Johnson.

The dystopian horror story starts like this:

“The seeds of the Little War were planted in a restless summer during the mid-1960s, with sit-ins and student demonstrations as youth tested its strength. By the early 1970s over 75 percent of the people living on Earth were under 21 years of age. The population continued to climb — and with it the youth percentage.
In the 1980s the figure was 79.7 percent.
In the 1990s, 82.4 percent.
In the year 2000 — critical mass.”

In order to combat the over population in the year 2116, it is law that people report for execution on the day they turn 21 years old. Sometimes people try to escape this fate and become Runners, and they attempt to make it to a secret coven of others like themselves–a space colony called Sanctuary. The government dispatches professional assassins, known as Sandmen to murder the Runners.

The main character–Logan 3, is himself a Sandman, who over the course of the book, becomes  a Runner.

The book also depicts a world where promiscuous sex and drug use are not frowned upon, and yet tobacco is illegal.

Sorry, but I can’t help but see some parrallels with what’s going on with the Global Warming issue. GW is now the great funnel through which all progressive agendas are poured: Population control, anti-meat rhetoric, environmentalism, totem-like worship of animals, anti-industrialism.

Think Logan’s Run can’t happen? I hope not, but how much farther is that dystopian vision from Diane Francis’ idea, as printed in the Canadian Paper: Financial Post?

Yup, you read correctly. Francis proposes a world-wide law preventing people from having more than one child.  As she states in ending:

“The only fix is if all countries drastically reduce their populations, clean up their messes and impose mandatory conservation measures.”

Spoken like a true liberal fascist.

    After reading Francis’ article and picturing the Dolores Umbridge character from Harry Potter, I can only say this about Francis’ idea:

    I love to procreate! You wanna impose a one child law like China?

    You can have my gun, you left wing Nazi, when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.

    This concept of population control is closer to home than you think.


    The only thing we are missing is the progressives wanting to use aborted fetuses as a food source to save the planet from Global Warming.

    And according to several reports I read yesterday, she has 2 kids. So what she’s really advocating is a one child policy for the little people. Superior beings like her are fine to have all they want.
