We should also look at "Ender's Game" as a classic example of a moral issue presented in a sci-fi wrapper.
I think that novel looked at what it takes to wage war on someone: a willful ignorance of who you are warring against. Or saying it another way: if you truly know someone, how they think and why they did everything, you can't hate them.

I bought a book and read about a third of it before the smartphone I was reading it on died. I got a replacement phone quickly, but when I reinstalled the Mobipocket reader on it and tried to copy the book over from my desktop, I got an error message.
Apparently, their DRM scheme requires the client to reach the mobipocket.com site and verify that I have the rights to continue reading a book I purchased 2 weeks ago. Bottom line: I can't read the book until they get their site up. Pain in the arse."
