“Don’t do unto anybody else what you wouldn’t like to be done to you.” It seems to me that that’s all there is to it.

The other issue is, why can’t humans live up to this principle?

So says Arthur C Clarke in this interview . Often the purpose of science fiction is pointed to show the world what could their blind ways of living life can result in to. Many a stories show the extreem version of class and cast divisions, including Wells’ Time Machine and Orwell’s 1842.

However, today… when we live a life aided by gadgets, we do seem to be living in an era of science fiction come true. Yet, something called religion is causing a lot of stir in various areas. Clarke talks about that too. Good Morning World!.
