I hear there was an election in the U.S.A.
Before I starting watching the news, I read books about the ‘possible’ news.
I learned about the politics of immigration, the politics of authority, the politics of gender, and the politics of media and technology from great science fiction authors. Most of these I read in my teens. I searched for the covers of the editions I read, as I remember them.
Strangely, I am still not sure of the cover of the 1984 I read. That makes me feel manipulated.
