Or is it only when the focus is on women that you become uncomfortable with dystopian futures that serve to highlight problems in our own societies by exaggerating existent beliefs?


1984 was a great book.
It is a pity we did not heed the message there.

What was 'Brave New World' about ?

Technology shaping humans, creating a hierarchy of humans from alphas to something way down in the Greek alphabet. Not “alphas” like that idiot Aqua keeps crapping on about, in BNW alphas are the most perfect human beings. No marriage—humans are manufactured, the woman do their “malthusian exercises” so they don’t get pregnant.

Another parallel:

QUEENSLAND’S LNP MPs have been warned they could be putting their political future with the party at risk if they support Labor’s abortion decriminalisation Bill.

The Courier-Mail can reveal LNP president Gary Spence spoke with MPs about the looming debate on the Bill during a party room meeting last month.

It isunderstood Mr Spence did not specifically tell MPs how they should vote but he did say they could be putting themselves at risk of having their preselection to run again at the October 2020 State Election overturned by the LNP’s powerful State Council

And—Roe about to be watered down by Kavanaugh:

You can’t ban abortion. You can only ban legal, safe abortion. Knitting needles will see boom times, unfortunately.
