Very interesting post indeed.

One point, which does not exactly contradict what you say, but supplements
it;   Wolfe is strongly pro "divisions" in humanity.   He is distinctly

That this is one of the fundamental messages of the books.

In TBOTNS his pattern for a Universalist society are the Asciians, where
communism and socialism have indeed removed all human racial and class

The Commonwealth, contrasted to this, is apparently divided and weak, but in
fact alive and strong, because it consists of organic tribal and racial
communities, not an anomymous mass of cannon fodder.
