Ideologues are people who pretend they know how to “make the world a better place” before they’ve taken care of their own chaos within. Sometimes it seems the only people willing to give advice in a relativistic society are those with the least to offer. Dreams shed light on the dim places where reason itself has yet to voyage. –Jordan B. Peterson

The story is set in a universe where there are 2 sister planets, which run on completely different ideologies:

Anarres: an arid planet with an anarchic society: no rulers, no private property, and no government.

“Less ego, more wealth. Saving money is the gap between your ego and your income, and wealth is what you don’t see. So wealth is created by suppressing what you could buy today in order to have more stuff or more options in the future. No matter how much you earn, you will never build wealth unless you can put a lid on how much fun you can have with your money right now, today.” –Morgan Housel
