Which excerpt from Silent Spring best appeals to readers’ pathos? So it had been from the days many years ago when the first settlers raised their houses, sank their wells, and built their barns. The town lay in the midst of a checkerboard of prosperous farms, with fields of grain and hillsides of orchards where, in spring, white clouds of bloom drifted above the green fields. In autumn, oak and maple and birch set up a blaze of color that flamed and flickered across a backdrop of pines. The countryside was, in fact, famous for the abundance and variety of its bird life, and when the flood of migrants was pouring through in spring and fall people traveled from great distances to observe them. Yet every one of these disasters has actually happened somewhere, and many real communities have already suffered a substantial number of them. A grim specter has crept upon us almost unnoticed, and this imagined tragedy may easily become a stark reality we all shall know.

According to "Introduction to Cultural Rebellion: Mid-Twentieth-Century Voices," which statement best reflects one difference between postwar science fiction writers and writers of the beat generation? Postwar science fiction authors wrote to encourage society to prepare for nuclear war, while beat generation authors wrote to protest the Vietnam War.

Postwar science fiction authors wrote to condemn the cultural ideal of the era, while beat generation authors wrote to satirize the cultural ideal of the era.

Postwar science fiction authors wrote to warn society of the potential results of its values, while beat generation authors wrote to reject society’s values.

Postwar science fiction authors wrote to celebrate technological advances, while beat generation authors wrote to embrace simple living and nature.

Answers

Postwar science fiction stories and books were questioning the thought and culture during the Cold War. The stories were discussing how individual identity meets with the moral, political and social issues of the period. Set in near future, in dystopia or in technologically advanced world, the authors tried to make people think about the realities of possible threats and dangers of a society.

In comparison with that, beat generation of the postwar era was not about the preservation or quest of the societal values. By introducing alternatives, such as sexual liberation, psychedelic drugs and spiritual quest the authors were rejecting values.          

The correct answer is the third option

Postwar science fiction authors wrote to warn society of the potential results of its values, while beat generation authors wrote to reject society’s values.
