Ursula K Le Guin – Calls on fantasy and Sci Fi writers to write alternatives to capitalism

Recently I read an article from Opendemocracy.net about the how the wonderful and award wining sci fi /fantasy writer Ursula K Le Guin invites fellow writers to use their art to create alternatives to capitalism. She talks about the difficult writers have today in regards to being held to ransom by the large printing houses that dictate what writers should and shouldn’t write.  These powerhouses solicit the prostitution of the craft and Ursula says that writers have a responsibility to resist and rebel against this trend before it is too late.

Let us read about better futures and learn to create them once we can believe they are a possibility. There is huge power in the written word.
