    Being deliberately vague to avoid spoilers: One of the most important skills in writing fiction is empathy, the ability to take diverse viewpoints and really imagine things from the perspective of the character you're trying to write. Otherwise all your characters end up looking either like copies of yourself or like caricatures. I don't think the author has done well in this regard, though it's a common problem in sci-fi. And I think portraying a more ambiguous and realistic scenario would have done more to get at the interesting ethical issues surrounding this use of the Panopticon.
