bookshelves: ideology

A combination of narrow ideology and an okay storyline in a sci-fi package. It gets 2 stars for the story, and minus 2 stars for the horrible fake sociology - 1 star is the minimum rating but it's more than it deserves.
The ideology is a mixture of straw-man arguments and paranoia.
It's much, much better and closer to convincing than BF Skinner's "Walden 2", but that's damning with faint praise. ("Walden 2" is a utopia without freedom, written without being recognized as a dystopia).
