    From the Banks interview:

    “I also felt that there was a moral high ground in space opera, and I wanted to reclaim it for the Left! I was fed up with reading these otherwise enjoyable books that ultimately turned out to be ultra-capitalist, or almost proto-fascist at times. I wasn’t having this.”

    Iain you silly boy. Perhaps one day you might want to explain how the citizens of the Culture were ‘gene fixed” and how an AI invented language became the standard of trillions of people.

    You literally can’t get more fascist then enforced eugenics and government imposed language.

    As to the moral high ground of Space Opera one wonders how the socialists, without violent coercion, will prevent those neanderthal libertarians from just leaving. Space is infinite is it not?

    Lastly your villains have become less believable then the ones found in an Ayn Rand novel. For the sake of your fans, reconsider Horza.
