    This is a resonating book, written 40 years before "1984". It is made to be the unfinished manuscript of someone's diary during a revolution and tryranny from an increasingly corrupt and industrializing California. Interesting to note this is the vision from 1908, at the time of the "progressive era" of politics and direct democracy initiatives.
