Read the article “Political ideas in science fiction” at Wikipedia. I might mix some of my editorial articles with some science fiction to make them more interesting. Also read the article “List of religious ideas in science fiction” at Wikipedia. I’m interested in history, alternate history, time paradoxes, and time travel, as well as political and religious ideas in science fiction.
