Interesting but repetitive. The author has a very large axe and makes room on every page to grind it. I enjoyed the Marxist take on, for example, police as a weapon of the propertied classes to be deployed against the unpropertied classes. However, it's possible to pass out every ten pages simply by drinking a shot whenever the author says "Benthamite". Did I mention it was repetitive?

I hope to finish this some day, but it won't be any day soon.
