Re: Why is humor lacking in so much modern sci-fi?

Up until the early 1970s, sci-fi generally projected a utopian future, and had a lighter mood. Since then, sci-fi has taken a darker turn overall, reflecting our angst and disenchantment by showing a largely dystopian future. Thus, the lack of humor.
