Am in the same boat, regarding politics. My brief brush with party politics has left me disgusted with entire process.
I maintain skepticism only at cost of profound alienation. If someone says "we", I'm pretty sure I'm "them", whoever "we" is.
If being seen to be good and kind is by expressing certain allegiances, then it is internalised quickly even by bright people.
I've always wished that Frank Herbert had swapped his use of the term "human" for "person" or some such else, idk. I should reread Dune soon

The Orange Catholic Bible (abbreviated to O. C. Bible or OCB) is a fictional book from the Dune universe created by Frank Herbert. Created in the wake of the crusade against thinking machines known as the Butlerian Jihad, the Orange Catholic Bible is the primary orthodox religious text in the Dune universe and is described thus in the glossary of the 1965 novel Dune: ORANGE CATHOLIC BIBLE: the “Accumulated Book,” the religious text produced by the Commission of Ecumenical Translators. It contains elements of most ancient religions, including the Maometh Saari, Mahayana Christianity, Zensunni Catholicism and Buddhislamic traditions. Its supreme commandment is considered to be: “Thou shalt not disfigure the soul.” The name “Orange Catholic” was created by Frank Herbert as a combination of the symbolic colour of Northern Irish Protestantism with Catholicism. As such it alludes to the union of what have been called “salvation by faith” (Protestantism) and “salvation by works” (Catholicism) ...

Interview with about Civ: Beyond Earth contains GIANT ALIEN WORMS. Frank Herbert is smiling down on you
I've had a wonderful time re-reading "Dune" and the other five Frank Herbert novels in the series. My cheerful atheist heart and head thoroughly approve of the way he comprehensively deconstructed Paul Atreides (and later, Leto II) as messiahs and gods over the course of the books. Although there are clues to what he planned in that first book, it's a bold course that he decided upon, essentially exposing as hollow what seemed to be core concepts within an iconic masterpiece. So many epic, Shakespearian tragedies in the sequels! Alia "possessed" by the evil shade of Baron Harkonnen, the prolonged existential torture of the Duncan Idaho Golas, the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood at war with itself, Dune itself destroyed and the fearsome Fremen reduced to pallid re-enactors! George R.R Martin has nothing on Frank Herbert when it comes to ruthlessly annihilating his characters.

I've seen other "lost works" published by descendants. Frank Herbert, Tolkien, and Conan Doyle come to mind.

I'll probably buy this one, and hope for the best. ;-)

“Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristocratic forms. No government in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class -- whether that class be hereditary royalty, oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy.” ― Frank Herbert, Children of Dune

I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -Isaiah 41:10 NKJV Fear is an act of reverential awe.

My senior quote was from Frank Herbert. Because I'm a nerd!
In the 1970s Chilean-French film director Alejandro Jodorowsky (best known for El Topo and The Holy Mountain) attempted to make a film adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune on a $9.5 million budget, it would have been a loose adaptation in Jodorowsky's surrealist style, it would have featured art and set design from H.R. Giger, Jean "Mœbius" Giraud and Chris Foss , music from Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, Magma and others (Jodorowsky wanted to assign each planet it's own art designer and musicians to score, so each one would have it's own unique look and feel) and a cast that would have included Orson Welles, Gloria Swanson, *** Jagger, David Carradine and freaking Salvador Dali, who demanded to be paid $100,000 per hour on the set, Jodorowsky actually agreed to this but it would lead to some budget conflicts. Oh and the movie would have been 14 hours long. Unfortunately the production stalled when it became obvious that Jodorowsky's ambitions FAR exceeded the actual budget and the film rights were eventually ...
Why is it than when anyone mentions George Herbert I for a brief instant confuse him with Frank Herbert?
"It is a wise man that does know the contented man is never poor, whilst the discontented man is never rich.". - Frank Herbert . Good night
Come on out for some art-house science fiction this weekend -- JODOROWSKY'S DUNE! 6pm Friday & Saturday 2pm Sunday 7:45pm Monday-Thursday (May 5-8) In 1975, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky, whose films El Topo and THE HOLY MOUNTAIN launched and ultimately defined the midnight movie phenomenon, began work on his most ambitious project yet. Starring his own 12 year old son Brontis alongside Orson Welles, *** Jagger, David Carradine and Salvador Dali, featuring music by Pink Floyd and art by some of the most provocative talents of the era, including HR Giger and Jean 'Moebius' Giraud, Jodorowsky's adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel DUNE was poised to change cinema forever.
Just heard the word "Pogrom" on TV, it reminds me of Frank Herbert's Dune; the vision of millions of Fremen marching on a holy war.
Whoa! I was trying to write a big post on here about God and Quantum Physics, and my browser crashed quite unexpectedly. I suppose it was not meant to be. But here is a little gem for you guys to enjoy, by a very great man, Werner Heisenberg. Anyone who studies Quantum Physics or genetics has heard of him. And any Frank Herbert fan has heard of him too -- hehe. I am betting most Jungians have also heard of him. But to the point, I guess my whole 8 paragraphs could be summed up by the following statement: “The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.” ― Werner Heisenberg Isn't that the most amazing thing to read about God and science? The Bible says that God gives us living water -- and Heisenberg's comment rings true on many levels -- one of the less apparent things he is saying here is this: "I drank the living water and when I realized where it came from, I was satisfied with the answer at last." The point a ...
The Making of the Atomic Bomb, by Richard Rhodes. Judas Unchained, by Peter F. Hamilton. And Dune, by Frank Herbert!
Certain sectors of Christiantity and Judaism claim the age of phophets is dead. George Orwell, Michael Chrichton, Aldous Huxley, Arthur C. Clark, Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Ayn Rand, and yes, Frank Herbert too, just to name a few... seriously, can you tell me the Age of Prophets is dead?!? Yes, I capitalized it! Ladies and gentlemen, we still live in the Age of Prophets, and the future is NOW!
I suppose that I've been influenced a _little_ by the "Dune" fantasy novels: mainly by their depiction of the "asymmetrical warfare" between rival factions who differ in their abilities, e.g. the mystical Bene Gesserit versus the scientific Bene Tleilaxu. But now that I have finished the _very_ Last Dune novel (Frank Herbert's son building on his father's outlines to complete the saga), I say, "YUCK!" The final volume "profoundly" arrives at the same old moral-equivalence _nonsense:_ defenders "equally guilty" as their attackers. None of that with Grey Eagle. "Ooooh, oh, you're being simplistic!" some will say. "You're not recognizing the shades of gray in real life!" Anyone who says this to me will be wrong. I have _plenty_ of ambiguous, on-the-fence characters in the Grey Eagle series; it's just that I know _which_ side of the fence they ought to jump off on. Let me offer just one of my important supporting characters: Mabel Sukarno Smith. She has lived all of her life as a member of the elite caste i . ...
By all, I mean all the Frank Herbert books. I didn't enjoy the Brian Herbert & Kevin J. Anderson books.

Orson Welles, Salvador Dali, *** Jagger, Pink Floyd, Moebius, David Carradine, H.R.Giger were all committed to participate in Alejandro Jodorowsky's cinematic interpretation of Frank Herbert's DUNE - had it been made. I thoroughly enjoyed Frank Pavich's documentary "Jodorowsky's DUNE" about the greatest science fiction film never made. What makes the film particularly engaging is Jodorowsky's non-stop enthusiasm recounting the whole process of almost getting it into production while showing little bitterness at all. For filmmakers and all artists, this film is especially inspirational and shows what one visionary went through in the attempt to realize his vision. "You can't make a masterpiece without madness."

David Lynch's 1984 adaptation of Dune is an ambitious, sprawling, messy work of visual art. No wonder it's a classic — though many will argue about how successfully, it took Frank Herbert's...
QUOTES for today's YOUR GROWTH MINUTE on: UNCERTAINTY “When in doubt, throw doubt out and have a little faith.” ~ E.A. Bucchianeri “Knowledge is an unending adventure at the edge of uncertainty.” ~ Frank Herbert “Never perceive anything as being inevitable or predestined. The only absolute is uncertainty.” ~ Lionel Suggs “We react to fear when we are uncertain of the outcome, we respond to fear when we don't care about the outcome.” ~ A. Dragonblood “If and perhaps. The language of procrastination and uncertainty. That's just people looking to justify their own lack of action.” ~ John Flanagan “Life isn’t meant to be lived perfectly…but merely to be LIVED. Boldly, wildly, beautifully, uncertainly, imperfectly, magically LIVED.” ~ Mandy Hale “He had the feeling that he must make a decision, and though he was used to making many decisions every day, this time he was beset with uncertainty; in fact he had no idea what was being asked of him” ~ Amos Oz “The most self-damaging ...

If Peter Jackson would adapt Dune, he could probably make 20+ movies just out of the Frank Herbert books.
Since a dozen of my friends have posted various versions of the list ten books that touched you I will share 10 books that heavily influenced me before high school. I was a precocious reader and at 10 was reading at a college level so I kind of skipped young adult books for the most part. 1. Dune by Frank Herbert (my first difficult book that I had to get a dictionary to help and practiced trying to say all the words with weird spellings) 2. Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (beginning a life long fascination with logic and deduction) 3. Foundation trilogy by Isaac Asimov (was given a giant book of Asimov classics which were my first SF stories) 4. Battlefields Beyond Tomorrow (a collection of military SF short stories which was my first anthology including Heinlein, PKD, Card, Nourse, Laumer, Saberhagen, Haldeman, Sheffield, Teddy the fish and other greats) 5. Childhood's End by Arthur C Clarke (my first SF story with a twist at the end) 6. Magician by Raymond E Feist (my first fantasy ...
Taken from an article by Philip Purser-Hallard in the Guardian : Literary highs 1. Melange (Frank Herbert, Dune) Also known as "Spice", melange can heighten awareness, instill psychic powers, prolong the user's life for centuries or bend time and space to their will. Unfortunately it's also hugely addictive - withdrawal means agonising death - and can cause extreme bodily mutations. Oh, and it's made from worms. 2. Soma (Aldous Huxley, Brave New World) Named after the food of the Hindu gods, soma is a narcotic, aphrodisiac and entheogen used in the ritual worship of Our (Henry) Ford. It's the mass-produced, bottled opiate of the mass-produced, bottled masses. 3. Chew-Z (Philip K *** The Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch) Supposedly a hallucinogen allowing the user to define their own reality, Chew-Z actually pitches them into the malevolent world of uber-dealer and false god Palmer Eldritch. The ultimate in bad trips. 4. Henry Jekyll's drug (Robert Louis Stevenson, Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde) The good doctor's . ...
Dune is a 1965 epic science fiction novel by Frank Herbert. It won the Hugo Award in 1966,[1] and the inaugural Nebula Award for Best Novel.[2] Dune is the world's best-selling science fiction novel[3][4] and is the start of the Dune saga. Set in the distant future amidst a feudal interstellar society in which noble houses, in control of individual planets, owe allegiance to the imperial House Corrino, Dune tells the story of young Paul Atreides, the heir apparent to Duke Leto Atreides as his family accepts control of the desert planet Arrakis, the only source of the "spice" melange. Melange is the most important and valuable substance in the universe, increasing Arrakis's value as a fief. The story explores the multi-layered interactions of politics, religion, ecology, technology, and human emotion, as the forces of the empire confront each other in a struggle for the control of Arrakis and its "spice".[5] Herbert wrote five sequels to the novel Dune: Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, ...
Thank you, Abby Beggerly Wright. This is a challenge. Picking a top ten for a specific genre would have been easier. I have always liked books that keep me engaged. My favorite books either become escapes (i.e., I slip into a timeless reality and may even forget to eat) or they present cascades of insights about life, the universe and everything. My list (alphabetized): A Course in Miracles (Helen Schucman) Dune (Frank Herbert) Ender’s Game (Orson Scott Card) Fingerprints of the Gods (Graham Hancock) Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe (Douglas Adams) Lord of the Rings (J. R. R. Tolkien) The Client (John Gresham) The Poetry of Robert Frost (Robert Frost) The Sign of the Crooked Arrow (Franklin W. Dixon) The Sphere (Michael Crichton) If the list included the top 20, I would include works by Louis L’Amour, Julia Child, Robert Heinlein, Robert Louis Stevenson, Albert Ellis, Gary Zukav, Woody Allen, Irvin Yalom, and the sagas of the Icelanders. As I understand this task, everyone on my list posts their t ...
