The Skies of Pern - Anne McCaffrey

I am finding so man similarities between this book and what is happening around us today. The Abominators are like our modern anti-vaxxers, pure water drinkers, flat earthers, blindly religious zealots. Clinging to old ways because it's tradition, despite new technology clearly improving lives. I wonder if Anne would feel the same, or if she foresaw this sort of future for us.
