Couple memories (same book?)

I think these are from the same book.
One is of a lunar colony that is under a ruthless dictatorship, in which the art of literacy has been completely lost. The dictator is an artist and sculptor.
The second is of a character who a time traveler has seen in the future, so is guaranteed to live till then. But it turns out he was brain injured in a near fatal incident and was in an "autistic" state at the time.
From the Seventies (?)
Says I‘be reached my viewing limit or the book is unavailable.
Even if the two are not from the same novel, I am almost certain they are both novels.
