[Milton-L] Not your mother's John Milton, but it is still "on topic"

Scholarly discussion is, I agree, the heart of the matter, but I don’t think there’s anything “off topic” about notices of works of art that Miltonists might find interesting (from the artists themselves or from others).

Is this, in fact, "on topic"?

I look forward to scholarly discussion on the list, which I have enjoyed in the past.  Haven't seen much recently.

Here is the latest iteration of John Milton in Outer Space. It includes Miltonist Biblical scholar Bienvenido Bones Banez's verses on diversity. Also the chapters argue why humanity and especially Western civilization is on the verge of extinction.
You will see why you will all need to get jobs as taxi drivers or flipping hamburgers at McDonald's in a few years when they eliminate the humanities as we used to know it. Do not kill the messenger please! Whether you believe any of the ideas or not, you might be amused.

Book is about 1/4 complete. After that I do the illustrations. Can Milton "make humanity great again?" We will see!
