"Suicide of the Fittest: How the Frisbee/Milkdud Conspiracy is Destroying Western Civlization" by David M. Haynes III

In “Suicide of the Fittest: How the Frisbee/Milkdud Conspiracy is Destroying Western Civilization” (ISBN 0985598700), David M. Haynes III presents a learned and satiric description of how Western culture has lost its way. The work’s unlikely title comes from Haynes’ employment of Frisbees and Milk Duds as two key descriptive metaphors.

Haynes uses Frisbees as a symbolic pastime chosen by those who seek alternative lifestyles because they falsely perceive themselves to be social outcasts. These people choose paths that highlight their misguided sense of persecution, says the author. For example, he illustrates this alternate Frisbee world with a real example of an insolent snowboarder who was seen blocking the ski lines while wearing a helmet with a sticker proclaiming, “I’d rather be hated than ignored.”

Milk Duds, on the other hand, point to childish tantrums of immature people who seek to coerce society through protests or through unlawful acts of “civil disobedience.” Self-deprecating, the 61-year-old author is ashamed that his boomer generation appears to be responsible for almost all of the societal chaos caused by the people and the movements symbolized by these two metaphors.

“I’m ashamed because it appears that my generation is responsible for almost all of the chaos,” says Haynes. “It was my generation that screamed obscenities on the Washington Mall, burned draft cards and showed callous indifference to societal standards of honor and decency. Looking back over four decades, we can no longer ignore how we failed society.  The protestors failed by causing the chaos, while the rest of us failed by not taking a stand against their behavior.”

Through his impassioned reasoning and marshalling of facts, Haynes shows how Western culture is slowly committing suicide as it “charitably” tolerates a worldview that works ultimately against society’s best interests. He feels that as a culture we are allowing ourselves to be exploited by humanity’s worst elements through our aspirations of tolerance and goodness.

Intended to reshape readers’ views on the future development of our nation and culture, “Suicide of the Fittest” mixes realism with biting humor, while taking a lacerating and comedic look at the most serious of topics.

“Suicide of the Fittest: How the Frisbee/Milkdud Conspiracy is Destroying Western Civilization” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
