The Great Explosion
A cheap faster-than-light drive system has permitted the population of the galaxy. Each planet has become the home for a particular social group. Four hundred years after the diaspora, a spaceship from Earth visits three of the planets, the first steps to unifying the galaxy under a new Empire. Things do not go entirely as hoped, as the incompetent military authoritarians of the ship encounter three very different societies.

Fantastic. I love it. One of the best descriptions of functional anarchy anywhere. And a must-read for anybody with even mild anarchist impulses.
I fixed the usual handfull of errors.

So I was watching "We steal secrets : The story of wikileaks" the other day, and came across this :
"Several weeks later, around dinner time. Manning was discovered lying on the ground. With a knife he had scrawled on a chair the words 'I wont"
Ever wondered what that was all about? Well that is clearly taken from this one. It's "The Weapon". (No spoilers, you will have to read it yourself).
I suspect Miss Manning is a Science Fiction buff :)
