He pops up in political discourse often enough to distract me from his art. I too enjoyed Ender's Game and Speaker was okay but he totally lost me with Xenocide. Having grown up in a Libertarian household I may recognize more dogwhistles than some, but whoever it was upthread that said they didn't really want to discuss his politics probably has the proper attitude here.
I didn't mean to start something and then disappear, but frankly I completely forgot that I'd said anything. There was an email in my inbox this morning that reminded me. I'll try to be more conscientious in the future.
