"The science-fiction movies of the 1970s suggest a number of common fears were in the air: chaos, deprivation, and totalitarianism, usually in some combination. (Less common but still present fears: killer computers, disruptive ape visitors, underground bats, and other threats this column will get to in due time.) The world of Soylent Green managed the ruin of Earth with an iron fist, while No Blade Of Grass and A Clockwork Orange depict worlds spinning out of control. But what of futures that managed to have everything and then some? Why would this be something to fear?"
~In 1970s science fiction, every utopia had a price
