I finally read this sci-fi classic and the overachieving take away I had was how close that world is to our own. I was surprised to see how many scary parallels this story had to our current world and then after some research on the story I found that the current 90s political and racial landscape was Octavia E. Butler's inspiration for The Parable of the Sower. She wanted to focus on the world she lived in and how she saw it's possible acceleration in the future. This is a fascinating story of a future I hope we never encounter.
