Science Fiction Legend Bradbury Aroused Suspicions of FBI

The FBI actively investigated late science-fiction writer Ray Bradbury on suspicions that he had Communist leanings in the 1960s, according to records obtained by The Huffington Post.

Several writers, including screenwriter Martin Berkeley, voiced suspicions about Bradbury, who was an outspoken critic of the House Un-American Activities Committee, which probed communists in America, The Huffington Post reported.

Berkeley “stated that the general aim of these science fiction writers is to frighten the people into a state of paralysis or psychological incompetence bordering on hysteria which would make it very possible to conduct a Third World War in which the American people would seriously believe [sic] could not be won since their morale had been seriously destroyed.”

But an investigation later revealed: “No evidence has been developed which indicates he was ever a member of the CP (Communist Party).”
