These works reflect on the rise and fall of dystopian societies, which in their desperation to artificially evolve are unweaving humanity at the seams.
According to the writer C.S Lewis,
“the man-moulders of the new age will be armed with the powers of an omnicompetent state and an irresistible scientific technique: we shall get at last a race of conditioners who really can cut out all posterity in what shape they please…Man’s final conquest has proved to be the abolition of Man.”1

1 Lewis, C. S. The Abolition of Man. Oxford University Press, 1943.
