It's amazing how few really good plausable stories there are warning about possible catastrophic futures. I'm referring to 1984 and Brave New World and maybe Farentheight 491. Any others I can think of are too much science fiction and can be very easily dismissed as such. Waterworld, Terminator, and all(?) others can be dismissed as unlikely fantasy. And the 'Plausable 3' above have been around for over 50 years and get reused over and over as warning examples. Nothing new since the 1960's. And how much power have they had to serve as warning examples and prevent or resist our slide into techno-corporante-slavery ? I'd argue they are greatly under appreciated.

Only 3 books in 50 years, civilization is hanging by a thread.
