A salary cap would serve not to limit how much a player can make. It could more aptly be called a “payroll cap”, since in essence that is what it does; the

Although the concept of this new world seems ideal, the author portrays it cynically. His ideas of progress, science and politics are reflected negatively in the novel as their employment in the society cause the sacrifice of such themes as religion, history, and freedom.
