Some really interesting articles have appeared over the past few weeks dealing with dystopian literature.
Wired has a bit of a spirited debate:
While, the London Guardian is worried: http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/sep/01/ya-dystopias-children-free-market-hunger-games-the-giver-divergent
What I strongly disagree with is the notion that dystopian fiction is either right or left. As a genre, it’s just interesting, and it can be as anti-corporate as it is anti-statist. What’s left and what’s right?
Placing it in a left-right category as the Guardian writes does not only diminishes the genre, it diminishes the intelligence of the genre’s audience.
