review The Iron Heel

review The Iron Heel read ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ì Jack London Jack London Ì 8 characters The Iron Heel has been hailed by some critics as the greatest of all dystopian novels Published in 1908 the novel is a prophetic warning of the dangers of capitalist excess The Oligarchy a monopoly trust has gained control and is in the process of sueezing out and shutti. Jack London wrote a dystopia Did you know that I didn t It is terribleThe first 75% is pure political screed And not very well scrode either it s hysterically and ineptly scridden Jack London was a socialist and this book makes socialism look bad through its sheer incompetence By the way that Lincoln uote didn t happen The fact that I happen to agree with the basic ideas here doesn t make the book any less boringWhen the plot finally does kick in it swell who cares what it is Without discussion if it hasn t kicked in by the halfway mark it s too late and it s a shite book Isn t that annoying when I say Without discussion It feels bossy and obnoxious right The very words make you want to argue even if my point is perfectly agreeable Well London uses that phrase like ten times in this bookWhat I was going to say is just when the plot is about to get going 150 pages too late no plot spoilers here but still minor view spoilerit ends in the middle of a sentence Literally in the middle of a sentence The last of many irritating footnotes explains that the manuscript just cuts off here and what a shame because we were just getting to the interesting part That is a lie though this is a made up book written by Jack London which means that Jack London could have just written the interesting part if he wanted to He s certainly written interesting parts before it s not like it s beyond him Maybe he could have written one of the stories he sortof mentions in passing like the 69 year old grandma assassin That could have been a cool story But no Instead he did the opposite of that Of all the possible parts of this book he wrote the least interesting one hide spoiler

Jack London Ì 8 characters

review The Iron Heel read ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ì Jack London Jack London Ì 8 characters Rnest Everhard but discovered by a third party Anthony Meredith who offers commentary throughout London finds time to praise Oscar Wilde who was still regarded by most of the public as a demonic corruptor of youth while providing a prophetic vision of the rise of fascism. In the Iron Heel London lays out something right in step with reality past present and almost certainly the future Jack London was a guy that had hobnobbed and interacted with the well to do he was even a member of Bohemian Grove but he had also seen the hard side of life working on fishing boats and in various brutal exploitive labor jobs doing time in jail etc So he had an insight that not many people have In this work he really lays out through fictional characters how many segments of society that claim to represent the downtrodden are bought and owned by the exploitive oligarchs especially the Christian church the fantasy world of academia and the crooked labor unions who often sell out the workers Also your hypocritical well to do armchair liberals who like to pat themselves on the back for any charitable deed but also often unwittingly have blood on their hands and almost always embrace and support the system when they feel their comfortable lifestyle may be threatened or they may have to make a stand He also shows how the big Capitalists destroy small and mid level business operators how they run smear campaigns through the media against anybody within the system that speaks out against them and the out and out brutality that they use against people that resist them Its pretty easy to find multitudes of real examples of all these things whether 100 years ago or in the here and now As far as how the revolutionary struggle is portrayed in The Iron Heel there are elements to it that I could see going down if a underground movement to topple the current oligarchs ever occured but there are also elements that I couldn t see working or even happening in a million years Besides that at this point in time I don t think there are enough people out there with the fighting spirit or intelligence to see how they are being screwed over by the system for any mass movement of resistance Just so long as people can stuff their face with junk food watch tv play video games take mind control drugs like prozac etc the new world order doesn t have much to worry about One thing London doesn t do well in The Iron Heel is differentiate between the Oligarch controlled Orwellian branch of international socialism and national localized or dare I say it racial socialism which the later three were much what London was in tune to not the globalist type of Fabian Socialism that people like HG Wells promoted
