I think this book should be required reading in school. It might cure voter apathy.

Definitely. I like political satires, because I think they always deepen one’s understanding of political procedures. I am not sure, whether it would cure voter apathy though, because disregarding the beginning of the book, the voting system on actual laws in Superstoe is quite different from our current one. It is hard to say. But I think the most important aspect is, that it sensitises to political manipulation which also for us gets harder and harder to spot.

Oh we can spot it. But can we stop it?

I see what you did there :)
We might be able to stop it by not voting for it or by voting for the alternative, provided that there actually is an alternative.
