Mutualist Blog: Free Market Anti-Capitalism

To dissolve, submerge, and cause to disappear the political or governmental system in the economic system by reducing, simplifying, decentralizing and suppressing, one after another, all the wheels of this great machine, which is called the Government or the State. --Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution

So. I got this book on your recommendation, Kevin. Unfortunately, the very reliable Luke Burrage of SFBRP gives it a horrible review--and he usually strains to find the good things in sci-fi books. See his review.

I didn't see a link to the actual interview, and from the context it seems to be a podcast which might be several hours' download on my dialup connection.

Have you received the book yourself and started reading it yet? I'd be interested in your independent assessment.

As you can tell from my review, my own reaction was pretty enthusiastic.

Kevin, it's a podcast. Luke is great. I listen to him all the time--get tons of recomemndations from him. BUt I have never heard him savaage a book like this. I just can't bear to read it now. I recomends part I out of 3, only.

Sorry, I meant: Luke recommends part I of the novel, but not overall, because of how terrible the writing is in parts II and III.
