They ban Russian books in Ukraine, Dugin’s among them. There’s a psyphi writer on the list too
Can never get enough “near-future fiction”
Metropolis on Fire – The battle is at its fiercest. A massive strike cripples the American superarmada. The indestructible aircraft carriers are at the bottom of the sea. It’s not easy to cut up the world, when one is faced with soldiers in kevlar armor and Russian hackers… a rebellion being in the overfed USA, as blacks fight whites, Hispanics fight whites, and whites fight both of the above.

I was thinking of this connection (highlighted)
Platonov, that’s one of the banned ones on the Russian Federation’s List of Extremist Materials
“Translating” banned books into subtle psyphi… sounds deadly.
