Bradbury is one of my favorite authors.


Yes, Bradbury, Wells, Asimov, Heinlein, Verne and of course... Orwell/ECT. I read so much, pre-30/professional life, I can't name/remember them all.

Have you read "History Lesson"? It's an Arthur C Clarke short story. I read it in a book/mix of Sci-Fi short stories 30+ (40?) years ago. Still remember it fondly... Can be read in <3hrs. (spoiler: you'll never look at LoonyToons/Disney/cartoons the same way, ever again)

If you DON'T want to find/read it, here's a link to a short synopsis:
