Mark | 4 comments So far, so good. Lots of good YA-type critical thinking/moral development stuff in here (I'm only about 100 pages in).

Is it worth giving up freedoms for security?

Is it okay to fight against one wrong by implementing another?

What is the value of privacy?

What types of privacy do we have the right to? What types of privacy do we not have the right to?
Under what circumstances can that be altered (if at all)?

Is intentionally creating disorder and chaos on a large scale a form or terrorism (terrorism lite?) because it makes people feel insecure?

Can our narrator be trusted? If so, what makes you so darn sure? If not-- then WHO CAN WE TRUST?!
