The point of this book is that our society is no longer run by the Government we've elected. They are puppets. The puppet-masters are big business who dictate everything. Their goal is not the well-being of society but how to get richer and gain more power. Democracy, true democracy, doesn't exist anymore. Laws are being created to serve the puppet-masters and we are really slaves to the system under the guise of freedom. This could be considered a non-fiction book were it not for Daniel Suarez' character Matthew Sobol.
Sobol was a forward-thinker who was also a computer genius. In Daemon, he comes across as someone with a grudge against society. We know he had a plan but we were unaware of the end-game. Freedom(TM) shows him to be our saviour.
Daniel Suarez is brilliant. I truly believe he sees all the problems in the world today and has come up with a way to fix it all. I'd like to say this is all science fiction but I'm guessing it's really science fact. I'd also like to say this is a dystopian future but it really is an image of our dystopian now. If this story is actually a means of gauging the public interest in this becoming a reality, I'd like to be the first in line to join this revolution. Release the Daemon!!
