Review: 2018.573 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s an interesting account of one man’s failed rebellion against the system. But at the end, he has his wife and family back, so it’s not totally bleak.

Con: It is very difficult to suspend disbelief for a premise like this one. If corporations rule, then how is the UN funded? How can there be courts that companies actually use?
