Heinlein was a great writer, so I suspect he didn't write much of this preachy and vapid story. Fiction is interesting when it makes you think, not when it tells you what to think. To make you think, fiction must raise some question whose answer isn't obvious. This, instead, preaches messages that are either self-evident and not disputed, like, "Using people as expendable minesweepers is wrong;" so biased that they're stupid, like "Rich people are all stupid;" or so cynical that they're stupid, like "what makes people human is their nastiness".
