"Definitely slanted against the United States":The FBI was Afraid that Ray Bradbury was Spreading Communism Through Science Fiction

Bradbury:Hating Imperialist America Put Him Ahead of the Curve - Just Like Always!
According to documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, the FBI was worried that Ray Bradbury was spreading communist ideals through his writings. They were particularly concerned about The Martian Chronicles because of the “repeated theme that earthmen are despoilers and not developers.” Even more ludicrous, FBI informant Martin Berkeley called science fiction a “lucrative field for the introduction of Communist ideology.”
