Lots of American SF was propaganda too, although neither the audience nor
the authors necessarily realized it.  "Now good old American can-do will
conquer the final frontier!  It's our manifest destiny to colonize the
entire universe!"  Et cetera.

Indeed, too many people think that settings of SF properties are meant to
indicate *approval* of the setting by its creators.  "Firefly" isn't meant
to advocate for its setting, folks.
