I don't remember seeing those Communist Dystopias that often, usually I think they just make fun of or use for "satire" whatever/whoever they can somehow lump in with Right-Wing Stereotypes.
I was thinking of more conservative leaning science fiction like the works of Kratman, John Ringo, David Weber, and Steve White.
I'm not going to say that it was an equal spread by any means, but as far as my caring about social-political themes in stories are I couldn't of cared less who your bad guys were. Still don't for the most part.
On that we agree. If anything I feel they are weaker now just because its more questioned then it was. There was a time in the 90s earlier 2000s were the Left was the unquestionable sane party, and every bad example of conservatives was blasted all over the nation.They managed to make that Left-Right Paradigm sorta unquestioned even before the Post-SJW-era
Depends. Did you like any of the Red Sonja stories when she wasn't in a chainmail bikini that barely covered any skin? How about Howard's original Red Sonya, from his historic fiction who wore practical period garb, as I recall?
You know I can't help but notice the disconnect in your argument, on one hand you're quite rational in pointing out that personal foibles or style of artists is an issue independent of social political leanings, but then you seem to be implying that CarlManvers only likes Red Sonja because she is sexy and in a metal bikini. It strikes me as being rather bias yourself in your reasoning.
