A Future Worth Fighting For

One of the key benefits of science fiction is that it lets us discuss important social issues without preaching about them. Imagine how much good science fiction could be doing right now skewering racial prejudices as Star Trek did back in the Sixties. Imagine how much good sci-fi could be doing toward getting kids into STEM. Imagine how much good sci-fi could be doing inspiring us to treat each other with dignity. Imagine how much good science fiction could be doing if the storytellers were as brave today as they were back then.

It’s a future worth fighting for. More thoughts on this later.
