The world is on fire. From the ashes like a phoenix rises a new America, one that will save it all. Under one condition; absolute and complete surrender.
The world complies without question. Those who don’t are destroyed. It is in this world, John is born. His very name is treason.
If the New America, now known to everyone as the State, knew what John was, they’d kill him, but instead they give him a gift.
Guest Post by Scott and Judith Powell: Why We Picked Dystopian as the Subject
Very much like the Dark Ages it appeared that society had taken several steps backwards. Why? In many cases history has shown that great societies like the Romans and the Babylonians were prosperous societies that eventually fell. Again the question would be why?
For us it’s simply because often times we forget how we got where we are today and fail to share this to the future generations. As it has been said often times or in many cases not often enough – those who don’t learn from their history are doomed to repeat it.
Dystopian writings are in many ways of what could be our future if we fail to learn from our personal mistakes and those of our society. In the end our destiny is within our choices, as to what path we take will be the future we create.
