Inequality. There was a time when science fiction writers told stories of a future world that strained one’s willing suspension of disbelief to the outer limits of plausibility. Today, some writers of science fiction describe a near future that seems to be just a few short choices away from our current society. Cory Doctorow leads readers into his story of the breakdown of civil order titled, Walkaway, as a logical consequence of growing inequality. I assume Doctorow wants to get readers thinking about the consequences of our current trajectory, consider what could be next, and then engage with others on making improved choices to build a better society.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
