Richard K. Morgan: Market Forces (2004)

(Just started Richard K. Morgan's novel Market Forces last night and could not put it down...)

"Society is, always has been and always will be a structure for the exploitation and oppression of the majority through systems of political force dictated by an élite, enforced by thugs, uniformed or not, and upheld by a willful ignorance and stupidity on the part of the very majority whom the system oppresses."

Oh My God. That quote excerpt perfectly captures how I feel about society and to top it off, it perplexes me!
I'll definitely have to read the book.

It is a vision of darwinistic global capitalism taken to the extreme.
