From official release/information:

When I was newly in college I hung out with a bunch of Anarchists, or at least Libertarians, who seemed convinced that government was the root of all social evil. Which means that I'm sure I never really understood what they meant at all. They were a bit confused by my presence, as I had clearly not drunk the cool-aid and seemed unlikely to give up my notions about a strong but limited government, but I was there because I liked them, and I liked the fact that they argued about how the world should (or shouldn't) be run. The answers they came up with still seem fanciful to me, but I always liked the fact they were in the business of trying to come up with answers at all. I met them at a small "free school" program run by the State University of New York known as "College A" and I think I originally read LeGuin's The Dispossessed as part of a seminar I organized called, "The Utopia In Science Fiction". I wish I could go back and find out what we talked about.
