Little Brother Redux

So I finished it last night. The last quarter of the book doesn’t really address the things I griped about yesterday, but it makes them less relevant by virtue of being more exciting. Once the Department of Homeland Security has been established as a gang of jack-booted thugs, for better or worse, it’s hard to feel bad about seeing them get squashed.

I still wish the book had had a little more nuance, or perhaps had encouraged the reader to think about the difference between civil disobedience and mere vandalism. As it is, it’s not the sort of thing that I’m going to recommend to people.
