This weekend at Salt Lake Comic Con, I mentioned three recent newspaper articles or opinion pieces that had bearing on the conversation. Since a few people have mentioned or asked about those articles, I wanted to share them here.
Here’s an opinion piece in the Guardian arguing that YA dystopian fiction “promotes a tacit right-wing libertarianism.”
Here’s an opinion piece in Wired saying dystopian sci fi makes us “fear technology,” and that therefore no one should write it.
And here is Gizmodo reporting on futurist Nell Watson’s concern that a benevolent AI might exterminate humanity as a mercy killing.
