Annotation

The novel begins in a eutopia on a beautiful planet with very strict birth and pollution controls to correct past bad practice on Earth. Most children are born in machines and raised in “child communes”. The people recognize that they are far from perfect and something like a slum exists among the wealth and the beautiful architecture. No religion. The eutopia is attacked and almost defeated by the followers of a charismatic religious leader who has taken over an entire planet through drugs that enhance psychic ability and allows people to be controlled.
