Doofy I tottaly get you. We lived under mild socialistic dictatorship (Josip Broz -TITO was an awesome political talent and leader despite some of his mistakes -only the surviving fifth column and their offsprings and neonazis denie it) for years and it was a whole lotta better. We didn't have that much goods, but we had professional security, healthcare,.... If we wanted something more fancy and a bit cheaper we just crossed the border and smuggled in a few walkmans,... It was kind a romantic.
Now it sucks utterly. There was a war and this much promoted 'idiocracy' happened. The market is flooded, but we have no money and shitty jobs even without payment. More and more people are unemployed, the managers and banks sink the companies, because they suck all the money on their accounts and they're not even prosecuted, because all the political parties and justice sistems are corrupted. I work some time in a fabric, leave after I don't get paid for half a year, was a bouncer, spent a whole year unemployed, than I clean toilets, and now I'm a graphic designer.... But I have a feeling I'll need to seek another job soon. F++k this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! And we have 2 strong parties that can be elected which is exactley one more than in the most dark communistic countries. And when one party starts solving the ****, the right wingers spoil it all up again.
Democracy is for idiots! :problem:

Your one of these ass holes that think the guy that scores the very last point in a game is the one who won the game for his team never mind all the fuckers who scored points before him.

In other words, if you want to remove a government you deeply hate from power legally, you first have to gain their approval to do so.
You do not need a degree in political science to see how this might be just a tiny bit exploitable by political leaders wishing to maintain power.
Heinlein can suck a fat dick and so can all the neckbearded manchildren who uphold his **** writing as being anything but atrocious just because they get miniscule hardons by a combination of lazors and ****-the-hippies.
I never once, while reading the book, thought Henlein was advocating the government he was writing about. I do however think we should live like the alien in 'Stranger in a Strange Land'. What with the sex parties and all.
