Annotation

Dystopia. Anti-union tract. Unionization, specifically of doctors, thirty years in the future. Doctors work six hours only and only on a narrowly defined part of the body; they must allow the patient to die rather than break these rules. Medical education is no longer required and no medical journals exist. Independence prohibited. In response to a campaign against it, the union releases diseases that kill sixty million people and destroys the economy. Killing a scab is not a crime.
