Annotation

Satire on both punk rock and the anarchist eutopia. A punk rocker is frozen and revived thousands of years in the future in an anarchist eutopia, where his violence gets him sent back to the past, where he arrives at the corner of Haight and Ashbury during the “summer of love.” The eutopia is also satirized in that everyone lives on a commune; there is only healthy food, clothes and most other things are made from worms; Dolphins run an L 5 space colony and communicate with Earth by telepathy; and so forth.
