Post-apocalyptic literature such as Alas, Babylon strips humanity of all the trappings of "civilization". It forces humanity to look at its very core. The lessons we learn have to do with how we react when we don't have "essential" services of society to rely on. We lean that humanity can be resilient as well as inherently destructive.
