Back on Terra, Dr. Henry Harris is charged with finding the cause of, and solution to this problem. After submitting the vegetative subjects to shock treatment, Dr. Harris was able to learn the source of the problem; and, upon visiting the garrison he is able to confirm that source - Pipers. Dr. Harris further diagnoses the Pipers as imaginative entities upon which the subjects are projecting blame for their desire to revert to useless social subjects.
Solution: psychotherapy - cause the subjects to become self-aware. Once the subjects become self-aware, the Pipers will vanish.
Read on to see what happens next.
Nice commentary on social entitlements which give rise to laziness, despondence, and dependence upon others. In actuality, it is this readers firm belief that the teaching and glorification of evolutionary theory has done much to destroy humanities self-awareness. Creatures that are created in the image of God, as taught in Christian scripture, ought not be led to believe that they are nothing more than the latest step on a never ending chain of happenstance. How does that breed self-awareness? How does that spark hope and desire? How is that ever good for a society, let alone an individual.

All Dick's writing attempt to make a social statement, some more successful than others. Even when he misses the mark you'll find yourself reading an entertaining story.Published 8 months ago by The Book Miner

I guess it's unfair for me to give it three stars, it's just that I expect a bit better from him. Cute and funny, but not that deep.Published 13 months ago by Ridley Jones
