Western sci fi authors, on the other hand, had more freedom to discuss issues of a political or societal nature in their stories but in the context of wondering how society functioned in the future, rather than re-inforcing a particular line.
...


That include a whole imagination of stealing a whole generation as providing "hygiene", better faith and sanitary?

I admire this kind of sci-fi emucc. You don't need S H A M E to have this kind of mental masturbation.

Poor emucc.

<Cueing up - Safety Dance by Men Without Hats >

S-s-s-s A-a-a-a F-f-f-f E-e-e-e T-t-t-t Y-y-y-y
Safe, dance!

{Spoken}
We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
Cause your friends don't dance and if they dont dance
Well theyre no friends of mine
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can dance

{Sung}
We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
Cause your friends don't dance and if they dont dance
Well theyre no friends of mine
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can dance
Dance!

We can go when we want to
The night is young and so am I
And we can dress real neat from our hats to our feet
And surprise em with the victory cry
Say, we can act if want to
If we don't nobody will
And you can act real rude and totally removed
And I can act like an imbecile

{Refrain}
I say, we can dance, we can dance
Everything out of control
We can dance, we can dance
Were doing it from wall to wall
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody look at your hands
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody takin the cha-a-a-ance

Safety dance
Is it safe to dance
Is it safe to dance

S-s-s-s A-a-a-a F-f-f-f E-e-e-e T-t-t-t Y-y-y-y
Safe, dance!

We can dance if we want to
Weve got all your life and mine
As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it
Everythingll work out right
I say, we can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
Cause your friends dont dance and if they dont dance
Well theyre no friends of mine

{Refrain}

Is it safe to dance, oh is it safe to dance [6x]
Is it safe to dance

You really need to review your U.S. history courses for the 1950's and 1960's.

Please review the history of the Twlight Zone, the Outer Limits, and One Step Beyond.

I do believe you will see that the realm of Science Fiction has been the home of many a writer, from all shades of the poltical spectrum.

So that kind of begs the question. Do all writers of fiction use politics in their writing, or is it just the Chinese?  


Oh... the realm of the fiction writer had been the realm of many a poison pen.  Whether it be Shakesphere or Sterling, the use of the imagined to take a stand on the real has been around may a long, long year.

But along with that poison pen has been the critic's sword - which in short term timeframes been mighter.  But in the long run - the pen seems to have a boarder, deeper stroke.

As for P.R. China... I will leave that comment to Northwest, who has graciously decided to join the debate. :)
