Freedom TM

Daemon #2

This was almost a 180 shift from the previous book. Everyone good was now bad and the Daemon and it’s minions were now the good guys.

And the first 3rd of the book was more of a soapbox preaching about economic philosophies. It wasn’t really interesting.

Then things got interesting, but it was more like a computer game. And Suarez seems to postulate that if only real life were more like a videogame then everything would be ok. The problem is that the system he puts in place could, and would, be abused, hacked and manipulated just like anything in life.

But the points he makes about our current socio-economic way of life simply doesn’t ring with me, as I believe the path we are on is one that is a necessity for the End to come.

Really too bad that Daemon wasn’t more of a standalone, because this really drags it down.
