“So the whole war is because we can’t talk to each other.”

Orson Scott Card, Ender’s Game

Card is 67 and is a professor of English at Southern Virginia University

Sometimes you come across social commentary in sci-fi fiction and it pulls you out of the book to think about your own reality.

Obviously there are a lot more causes to a War than not being able to talk to each other… but when you really stop to think about it, communication and understanding is at the core of any conflict, whether it’s on a world stage or a conflict in your own home.
