Annotation

Eutopia of the future rehabilitation of criminals told from the point of view of one of the criminals being rehabilitated. Those considered “genetically criminal” are “permanently isolated;” those considered “low productive” have their memories permanently erased and are “restrained for base labor” (87). For those deemed capable of being rehabilitated, the regime consists of education, exercise, and humiliation at the hands of someone who, it turns out, had been through the process.
