STroopers' socialism (was stevep's reader/gamer thingie)
- It's been 20+ years since I read Starship Troopers, (it's gathering dust with the rest of the books I don't have time to read/re-read) but I do remember the ST movie, (which I saw a couple years ago & I thought was decent in parts, but different from the book in others, just don't recall which parts) & there was a class on socialism toward the beginning of the movie. THAT was what I based my earlier comment on. Sorry for the confusion, long day, short night.For Those of Us Who Are Confused, We Salute You!Bobjester at bobjester28@...----- Original Message -----From: John RanerSent: Friday, August 31, 2001 6:55 AMSubject: Re: [gwmg] - Swap "Reader" for "Gamer" - and "GM" for "author".

In what way is the Federation socialist? I don't think
there is anything socialist about it.
