Here is what the excellent James Lileks had to say about the opera The Handmaid’s Tale about which I commented the other day.
“Let us imagine that a very bitter, angry old man writes a book about some horrible dystopian future. Due to ecological despoliation brought on by overpopulation, the society is now run by homosexuals who breed a ruling class through genetic manipulation. Religion and private property are banned. In concert with other nations, the ruling clique of gays is attempting to dissolve national boundaries and seek a socialist global order. The novel concerns the life of one man who defies his genetic programming.
