Having just completed my second read-through of Heinlein’s Starship Troopers, I thought I would write about my thoughts on Heinlein’s political philosophy as expressed in this must-read work. Starship Troopers is one of those true gems of Science-Fiction; it uses fiction to explore something interesting about the human condition, in this case war, peace, order and duty, with little to no suspension of disbelief. There are no moments where the reader is going to think, that’s bogus! The Terran Federation has no easy victories, and a couple of sound defeats.
