In depth critique of Starship Troopers - book and film - covering the politics of both. The novel's been attacked for being too right wing, this critique argues against that. (Anyone who's talked to me about work recently knows about my Technical Implementation/ Mobile Infantry parallels. I'm taken with the idea of being a domain expert wielded by someone else. The chain of command protects you from dealing with unreasonable requests from external sources and lets you get on with your job, while it guarantees you'll be allowed to do the Right Thing and trusts you to make your own domain choices.)
