Social critique should always be this funny.

I would expect the book, with its focus on the media circus, to feel a little dated given when it was written, before the real internet boom. But somehow it doesn't. Its vision of hope is a little overly vague at the end, though - perhaps that's sensible enough, given its simultaneous critique of capitalism and revolution. Though that makes me curious to read more political satire written in a post Seattle '99, post Occupy moment, though, because some of the critique is going to be very different, and I wonder what the possibilities for change are that could be opened up by a strong satire of those movements.
