The Witches thing just one political group attacking other political group. I am sure we can see something like that all around us now.

Yes, life is surround by politics , and one must choose either side or be neutral. Sure, there are degree of political level in all sides, but these are the big three - left, right, or neutral. Aristotle's politic is a good read in this.

http://www.coverbrowser.com/image/books-on-politics/283-3.jpg

It always come back to what is best for the people, not just for the ruling class or the Stakeholders. I know US Constitution is the best, not perfect, but the best amount all political system on earth's short history that will and did bring the most liberty and freedom to her people. I hope this is not too political in here.

A good book indeed. Though, I would suggest one to read the original language of AOW. I read both versions and I can tell you that they are somewhat different.

Oh yeah, the ancient character language is fascinating. Some scholar say one only need to know around two thousand characters to speak the language properly. I think one need to know more than two thousand to really understand AOW. Good fun though.

The Communist Manifesto
http://lemmingsorlions.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/the-communist-manifesto.jpg
It had a great start explaining things. It is still very very relevant, even though it was published on February 21, 1848. Then it took a turn for the worse. The solution was very extreme and I concluded that it is "no wonder" that communism fell as hard as it did.

Balance is the answer.

That is what I already said in my concluding statement....

Or did you mean

China is not the "exact" communism introduced by this book.

It was a good description of how things started to work after the industrialization of nations. Then when it started concluding that we are mindless drones with A) No morality B) No Spirituality C) Et Cetera I realized why it didn't work.

Do you have the same opinion as me?

The proletarians replace the state, and the state basically replaces the Bourgeois.

The self-destruction process of USSR is one most important example of top classes will use "Utopia" idea to gain power. There are no such things call morality, spirituality, proletarians, bourgeois, add some if you want. There is only one thing - human. We are a being that will control others if given a chance. Brave New World is one of the best description in how the top control others. And I am sure THE BEST thing that can guarantee it will be restricted is the uSA Constitution.
