YMMV: Farnham's Freehold
  • Clueless Aesop/Unfortunate Implications: Heinlein was trying for an anti-racist Aesop, but the characterization of the black oppressors lines up remarkably well with contemporary racist stereotypes, and the Persecution Flip can easily be read as leading to the moral "Don't let black people get any power, because they'll use it to do to us white people what we did to them, only worse!"
