A historian says most science fiction has the same major flaw - except one legendary novel
Historian Michael Bess worries that Aldous Huxley's most famous novel "Brave New World" may be one of the most accurate sci-fi visions of our future. In the 1930s-era book, people are bio-engineered, raised in artificial wombs, sorted into castes, and take emotion-altering drugs. Bess argues the trajectory of today's drugs, prosthetics, and genetic engineering may lead to a dystopian future if left unchecked.
