I gave Modesitt a final chance with this book. He failed.

It is at least 1000-1500 years after the fall of the American Empire but at least 2-3 times per chapter the main character is reminded in one form or another how evil they were and how enlightened and wonderful this new society is.

First off, who even talks about empires thousands of years in the past?[except for historians and history buffs? Not the run of the mill people] The past is forgotten and the evils of a generation are glossed over by newer evils.

It was just another diatribe against capitalism wrapped in Modesitt’s scifi universe. Only his Recluce stuff for me now.
