Talk:The Unincorporated Man

Latest comment: 14 years ago by (talk) 12:31, 6 June 2010 (UTC) I consider this book one of the most important social commentaries since 1984 and Brave New World. It has one significant flaw; after the author reveals the main point, that the previous war/crisis/war situation was resolved by initiating young minds with the horror of what alienating yourself by immersing into a make-believe world does, the book collapses and falls to 'set up own world view on asteroid' ending. The most significant statement the author is making is completely ignored by whomever wrote the review page. Everything the book does leads to this discovery; its importance cannot be underestimated. Incorporation is the way this society saw to rescue itself from self-isolation. The society used political indoctrination ala the Hitler Youth and the exposure of young Chinese children to the Rape of Nanking memorial as a way to direct their thinking and even though our hero questions this, their result of 400 years seems sufficient. No war. Everyone's self interest is served be being interested in the success of their corporate stock. Society rewards success for all by decreasing the risks. You eventually buy 51% of yourself and retire. Everyone has contributed, everyone benefited. I suggest the author reached a crisis after constructing this magnificent mountain of thought and was not able to continue in the same vein. I suggest the disclosure of the Chairman's secret amassing of his own stock to 100% should have been a minor aspect, not a turning point. I suggest the rot revealed by the disclosure that all were originally credited with 51% at birth and during subsequent years the amount was reduced to the lower than 40% at the time the Unincorporated Man was unthawed was flawed way forward. Salvation from self-isolation deserves a win. May I suggest that the Unincorporated Man allowed to be unincorporated---while he is alive. Everything is more valuable with time. The unincorporated man should be allowed to continue his choice and upon his natural death a long-term stock option be exercised which would allow everyone a single stock; that in itself would be of sufficient rarity that it would be valuable. This book's concept is too valuable to dismiss due to this flawed way forward.Reply

This entire comment is incoherent babbling. It almost makes sense. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:38, 9 June 2010 (UTC)Reply
