The Moon is a Harsh Mistress / Starship Troopers ¶
Would love to get your thoughts on two Robert Heinlein Books I (re)read recently.
A short disclaimer: I don't necessarily support any of the ideas proposed in the books, but found them deeply thought provoking especially in the context of the 2016 political climate and with the concept of Asgardia.
'The moon is a harsh mistress' is probably more relevant. It's about a lunar colony trying to break away from earth.
'Starship troopers' should not be confused with the movie, which is only very loosely based on the book. The book spends a lot more time philosophising on systems of government.
What are your thoughts on these? I will share mine in later replies.
