What is the message of Dune? How does the 1984 movie, directed by David Lynch, differ from the book by Frank Herbert? While the viewer roots for the House of Atreides, even they represent a future endlessly dominated by old-style oligarchy - the perpetual enemy of freedom. Is Frank Herbert catering to our fascination with feudalism? Or is he trying to shake the reader awake? Science fiction author David Brin comments on the social implications of Dune.

David Brin's books include The Postman, Startide Rising,and The Uplift War, as well as his non-fiction work, The Transparent Society, which deals with issues of privacy and secrecy. For more information about David Brin, visit his website: http://www.davidbrin.com/
