The novel may sound like it's being leaned to far left for most people's taste today, but it's still a great story for the sake of escapism. I say this because any religion or ideology can go to far or just aren't compatibly with general free will or even a society. This implies the problem with Islam in the west, Christians censoring video games, and Marxism influencing colleges and destroying universities. There will always be some flaws with the world around us, but we always have the power to for what is right. That is why Channel Zero is one of the best novels since 1984.
