Why cli-fi novels matter and will matter for next 30 generations

''I can't speak for whether any of the named titles are any good, but I can say fiction can shape the attitudes of affected youth: in my day anti-war books like Catch 22, Seven Days in May, Dr. Strangelove, and nuclear warnings like On the Beach, not to mention anti-shut-up-and-take-the-boss-for-granted novels like 1984 and Brave New World left a generation with something to think about into their old age.''

A comment on the ATLANTIC website after a recent article by JK Ullrich about the rise of the cli fi genre of literature and movies.
