Hickman has said that he likes to be thought provoking but would like to refrain from creating a political stance one way or the other. You could be right, that may be the way it plays out.
That being said, it is easy to see that his writing has a liberal ideology behind it.
Am I crazy, or are phrases like "global projection ideology" and "homogeneous liberal democracy" ominous and evil sounding? I mean, surely the world hasn't gone so insane that those kinds of hitleresque philosophies are considered preferable, are they?
And take into account, the guy saying this stuff was doing it in the dark, in front of some nefarious machine, and the protagonist of this book is being mentored by a guy who wants to bring down the organization saying these things. I'm fairly confident in my assessment.
