    is whatever the author sees, it is not a constrained art form which must always be optimistic, always be the good guys wear white hats and win.

    Science is actually fairly neutral in many ways, and ought to be.   It should be a search for facts, to understand how things work and what is.  But it has always been corrupted by those who would avoid the facts, and its products misused to destroy rather than succor.

    I prefer optimistic stories, morality tales in which good triumphs over evil.   But I don't think anyone can or should dictate that science fiction is always optimistic.
