More or less much everyone on OT seems to have read it, and if you havent, do. Its the best book ever written. A few discussion points: 1. Is there a war going on? 2. Is is possible for the proles to rise up? 3. Can the societies described survive indefinitely? Taking the mind-reading techniques they have to be real. Would stopping all technological progress also stop political change? Would a natural disaster, famine, or some other event eventually see BB toppled?
