Crime beyond the numbers

The year is 20X6. The States are under attack. Leviathan has gotten sick of humans’ shit, and has built an army of flying death robots to kill anyone who gets within fifty miles of the ocean. USG includes these deaths in its homicide statistics.

What happens to the homicide rate?

When the robots show up and start killing, the homicide rate increases. Eventually, people figure out what’s going on, and everyone who’s still alive flees the affected areas—and the homicide rate drops back down to normal.

But the coastal regions are still uninhabitable.

The flying death robots are still there—but people got used to their presence, ate the losses, and learned to work around them.

    What is this an allegory for?

    Also, when are you going back to writing more long-form actually good content? There are some old posts on here and the other WordPress which would be good candidates for a follow-up.

      Which? I’m working on one now, but it’s not a follow-up to anything.

      I should finish the Moldbug series at some point, but that ship has probably sunk, splintered into a million pieces, and been alchemized by tryhard godlings into turdlet molecules swirling about in an ocean of piss.

    Is this a white-flight thing?

    Not all flying robots are like that. A flying robot drops Amazon packages at my house and he seems very nice.

    So are white women mudsharking with the robots? Are the kids like terminators part man part machine?
