i actually don't think what the government is trying to cure is love. it's passion. when alex describes why his father was imprisoned, it's because he belived in something and stood up for it. so long as people have passion to fuel their free will, the powers-that-be will always be threatened. but the government is smart-- passing it off as "love". it's harder to condemn feeling passionate about something than it is something like the romeo&juliet "cautionary tale of love".

Interesting way of looking at it. I think you're right, they just want to avoid having someone threaten their power at all costs.

I agree with everything you wrote in your review! I just felt like the setting was to forced as well. I still want to read the sequels to see what happens.
