Now everyone knows this book is full of racist propaganda, so it should come as no surprise that the antagonists of this book are the blacks and jews. Being of jewish heritage, I was interested in the social commentary of the book. I was disappointment that the book gives no establishment of why they are the enemy. In this dystopia, it is assumed (as if not knowing is ignorance on MY part) that jews and blacks have superceding power over the US Government, and therefore are the system. I found this a ludicrous assumption, but came as no surprise to me since racism is the tradition of ignorance and stupidity.
In my opinion, the book would have been much more meaningful to the average American if the enemy, rather than being those dictated by the Aryan faith, were the major political parties. Unfortunately, this book is propaganda. It mixes truth with lies and blurs the line between racism and reality. I agree with the book in that "people feel no loyalty to the System anymore" but disagree with the notion that this is because of black civil rights or a jewish nation.
The beauty of the first amendment is that you get to read it at all. The FBI probably wants it banned, but you have a right to know, whether it's right or wrong. As Milton said, the truth will always prevail in a free-thinking, uncensored society.
