For an interesting summary of our current political situation re-read or read for the first time these books/ short stories , all written over 50 years ago. What were the concerns of some remarkably prescient satirical scifi writers 50 years ago…To me it seems remarkably like what we should be writing about today. All can be read from different points of view with differing interpretations but all will make you stop and think where are we and where are we going?
