However, I agree with those who argue that the intellectual abandonment of utopianism since the late 1930s has sapped our political options, and left us all in the helpless position of passive accomplices. At the USC symposium on cyberpunk, Rudy Rucker recalled how cyberpunk emerged in reaction to the prevalent "arena rock" quality of science fiction in the 1970s--its emphasis on spectacle, elitism and tired, endlessly-rehashed tropes.

In 1983, a writer named Bruce Bethke had published a story called “Cyberpunk” in the November issue of Amazing Stories. In Niven and Pournelle's Lucifer's Hammer, society is wiped out by a comet and must rebuild; in Nevil Shute's On the Beach, humanity is destroyed by a nuclear holocaust; in Stephen King's The Stand, humanity must cope with the aftermath of a devastating plague. I should also add that there has been a lot of awfully bad SF published in the USSR for ideological reasons, because a committee liked its hacks.

As Sterling and Kincaid both note, few practitioners seem to be looking forward and engaging in rigorous speculation on the future. Science-fiction television shows of the 1970s and 1980s include Battlestar Galactica (1978-1980) and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979-1981), both set in outer space. Briggs and UC Reznik in the field, Scene 5, music and ambience by Kevin MacLeod, ERH, and How To Destroy Angels. All the theories of manufactured normalcy and zero history can be short-circuited by just one thing: simply looking around.

The librarians of that era had to cope with more serious problems than theft, vandalism, inadequate budgets, and low pay. Sterling’s desire to represent cyberpunk as a radical subgenre within SF—one which prompts him, in his introduction to Gibson’s Burning Chrome (1986), to dismiss all of ’70s SF as "not much fun," as in "the doldrums," "dogmatic slumbers," or "hibernation" (1-2)—is rearticulated even more forcefully in the special Mississippi Review cyberpunk issue (1988) and in the Rucker-Wilson anthology, Semiotext(e) SF (1989).

One version of a cyberpunk from the in-development Cyberpunk 2077 game. Another television series with a cyberpunk feel was The New War of the Worlds. Orson Scott Card, in his introduction to the story in Future on Ice, argues that Bear cannot be a cyberpunk writer because he is an "all-around nice guy", the implication being that real "cyberpunk" authors are not.

Feminist science fiction has also explored societies that follow a goddess based religion, a theme in Elizabeth Hand's Walking the Moon (1996), Starhawk's The Fifth Sacred Thing (1993), Marie Jakober's The Black Chalice (2000) and Suzette Elgin's The Judas Rose (1994). But what made it so interesting is that the viewer really identified, to some degree, with Hauer's character.
