By George on July 15, 2006
Format: Paperback
Colony 14 by Don Fredrick is a philosophy book following the stile of Ayn Rand's book Atlas Shrugged.

The book builds a what-if-society if the government keeps making to many laws. This book really does resemble Atlas Shrugged. The basic story line is about the same. The book follows the story of several successful individuals in a world that laws are making it increasingly difficult to be successful. Details about the government are more important to the story then the people themselves.

What are some of the consequences of having a national health plan? What about equal opportunity employment? What if unions had so much power that you couldn't run you business with out the consent of the union.

I the book Colony 14 Americans have made the words fair and equal mean the same thing. It is not fair to have only a white male president we should have people that are black and we should have women. We should not forget about the Hispanic community. The year is 2030 and we have presidents of the United States, four of them to be exact. The four presidents are made of two women, two men, one White, one Black, and one Hispanic. That's only fair right?

In this system the government will support the rights of one group by squashing the rights of another. They will tax one set of people to give jobs to another.

The book is a great read. Like Ayn Rand, Don Fredrick presents the concept of no government where capitalism is a self-managing system. The book almost makes it sound possible and it has some excellent points. After reading this book I think you will see most of our governments spending and regulations as wasteful. If you believed in a federal health care system before reading the book you may be questioning you believes.

Good so far. The auther does a good job explaining free market economics and why statism and social fail. I felt the story could have been drawn out a little more -- more show and less tell. Looking forward to the ending.

This is a badly plagiarized Fountainhead. If the tree was infested, so shall be the fruit.
