    It’s funny because it’s true.

    Oh, hasn’t this happened already?

    Not completely. But as for the constitution, they don’t need to worry over it. It’s not changed , just forgotten or ignored

    In order to preclude paradoxes the time line splits at that CHD or Common History Date. When you went back you went to your time where nothing has changed. You would have to find some way to get to the alternate you created to live it. See?

    The German government of the 1930s cancelled a lot of constitutional rights for the “Protection” of the German people. Sounds a lot like the U.S. government over the last 12 years!

    William Tenn “Brooklyn Project”

    This is a short story about a time travel experiment with a twist. Well worth the 20 or so minutes it will take to read it. It was written in 1947.

    Here’s a paradox for us to ponder…
    What if there really is time travel. How would we know if the government, or goodness help us others, kept going back and changing things until they got the result they wanted? Would anyone in the ‘current’ now even know?

    If he goes back and somehow prevents Barbara Pierce from meeting a young Navy pilot, it’ll be worth it.

    I read a sci-fi story once where (as best as I can remember—it’s been a long time) the hero went back in time and killed his grandfather … nothing happened. So he went back and killed a bunch of important historical figures … still no change. Finally he met a fellow time traveler who explained that all the lines of history were separate , sort of like spaghetti. The final zinger of the story came when the hero asked why he couldn’t affect anything anymore. He was told that if the time lines were like spaghetti, time travelers became the spaghetti sauce.

    Perhaps the government already has a time machine and knows what the future will bring. That might explain some of the governments odd decisions.

    Of course time travel to the future is possible its called aging.

    Any William Tenn story is worth reading! He and Robert Sheckley are the two forgotten titans as far as I’m concerned.

    Seems to me that any changes to the past would have already been made and we wouldn’t know about it, theoretically.

    Another interesting play on time travel is Robert Heinlein’s 1958 short story All You Zombies. It gives a whole new meaning to “We’re all related”. And, no, it has nothing to do with zombies.

    @Gaijinrabbit

    I’ve just finished reading “All You Zombies.” That’s one of Heinlein’s weirder stories.
    As I read it, I vaguely recalled reading it years ago, but I didn’t remember any details, and saw it with fresh eyes.

    Thanks for the link.
