Annotation

Satire both on the idea of utopia and on specific reform movements, including women’s rights. A military that does not fight. No votes for anyone. Government that does nothing. Only Shakespeare in the theatre. No newspapers. There is a well of the water of truth, and anyone exposed to it can no longer live in Utopia.
