Annotation

Anti-utopian, anti-socialist, and anti-feminist. Presents a socialist utopia as inevitably dull, boring, and extremely limited. Food requirements are determined by the Hygiene Board and provided from a central, national location. Advanced technology does all the work because the people will not work. Empowering women means that women dress like men and are ashamed of beauty but are more active than the men. Motherhood abolished; if children are born, they are raised by the state. To further equality, there is a law against learning. No religion.
