# I like this because I like Bradbury and the idea of setting Farage on fire.
I suppose your pun is okay too.

# Interviewer: How does the story of Fahrenheit 451 stand up in 1994?
Bradbury: It works even better because we have political correctness now. Political correctness is the real enemy these days. The black groups want to control our thinking and you can't say certain things. The homosexual groups don't want you to criticize them. It's thought control and freedom of speech control.

# What's this? An American scifi author with insane right wing views? I'm shocked and truly humbled and now I'm questioning my entire sociopolitical outlook.
At least I've still got Heinline and Larry Niven to rely on. No way would they ever turn out to be OH MY GOD THEY'RE ACTUAL NAZIS.

Still, at least the liberal SF literati elite can't let me down. Asimov and A.C.C. can't possibly have said or done anything to OH MY GOD THEY'RE CREEPY FUCKING SEX PEOPLE.

# All the authors I just mentioned express great big ideas
but tend to have pretty badly written characters. Especially women characters, who are either sex mad airheads or autistic savant spinsters.

But as long as you're there for the big dumb objects, robot slavery ethics, fascist dystopias presented as utopias, and bestiality-gangbang-based interspecies societies, you're grand.

# Wasn't there a special edition where the title only appeared on the cover if you placed it in an open fire?

I was happier not knowing this.
