Only Communists would think that it makes sense to actually implement bad science fiction plot ideas…

“It was Robert Heinlein, I believe, who wrote that the essence of science fiction is to take some idea or trend and play it out to its logical, if absurd, conclusion. For Heinlein, the essence of science fiction was to ponder the question, “if this goes on…”

Normal people may wonder what would happen “if this goes on,” but when they ponder the conclusion, they usually draw back in a human horror of the inhuman implications.

Not so with science fiction authors and Communists.”
