YMMV: The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress
  • Alternate Character Interpretation / Designated Hero: Stock exchange fraud, rigged voting, hypocritical "anarchists" who deride "government knows best" philosophy right up until they form a shadow cabinet that "knows better" than the government they helped construct; not to mention the strategic use of weapons of mass destruction to terrorize the Earth's population into caving to their demands after they asphyxiated the previous "head of state" into a vegetable state... Our heroes, ladies and gentlemen!
  • He's Just Hiding: Proven in later books, when The World as Myth became unified.
  • Values Dissonance: Even allowing for the deliberate differences in Luna society, the book was obviously written in The Sixties in light of its characterization of women.
