"World peace and social tranquility in THE STATUS CIVILIZATION have been achieved through a hypnotic process incorporated into public school education, which compels each person to hasten to one of the ubiquitous robot-confessor stations if he has committed a crime or even suspects himself of having committed one. Ironically, Sheckley's hero, a confessed and exiled 'murderer,' is innocent, but he had assumed himself guilty because of incriminating circumstances." - Berger, Science Fiction and the New Dark Age, pp. 103-4.
