Editorial Reviews


As with all of the editing of your previous novels, you are an absolute gift to edit and the amount of times I find myself reading instead of editing (fear not, I double back!) is ridiculous. You have something to say and the craft to say it - super impressive writing. Well done. -Caroline Smailes, Editor

"This book was absolutely amazing! I didn't realize when I bought it, that it was 600+ pages! I figured I would take a month to read it. It hooked me from the first 3 pages. I ended up reading the book just about nonstop for 2 days. Anyone wanting a great thought provoking book, grab this one now!" - Koditten ★★★★★

"Williams hits this one out of the park." - Jerry G. ★★★★★

"I've been studying American "democracy" for almost 40 years, step by laborious and painful step figuring out its Machiavellian nature--one genocide after another, endless wars of conquest based on propaganda and lies, erosion of liberties, growing inequalities, and, worse of all, dismantling the biosphere and threatening humanity's very existence. Phil Williams not only captures these horrors, but does so through a captivating, touching, well-crafted, novel. If you care about the golden rule, truth, justice, freedom, peace, and the future of humanity, you owe it to yourself to read this novel. And unlike the articles and books that dissidents like myself write, this is a beautiful work of fiction, a real page-turner.

A few minor philosophical points occurred to me. First, the answer in my view is not anarchism but real (miscalled direct) democracy (see: 7.4 Million Cheers for Real Democracy). Second, I entirely agree that we must give our rulers a bit of their own violent medicine, but there is a better way, in my view, than Williams' solution. Why isn't his solution going to work? In part because once you brainwash people, they find it excruciatingly difficult to change their minds (for more details, see the Wikipedia entry "Belief Perseverance" and especially the cited Festinger and Nissani experiments). And speaking of Wikipedia: It's a Deep State project, and should be treated with skepticism on anything that involves history, political assassinations, billionaires, Mafiosos, judges, congressmen, and presidents. Lastly, barely mentioned in this wonderful book is our rulers' gravest crime: if humanity continues on the present course, its chances of survival are close to zero (see online: The Human Experiment is Probably Coming to an End).

All in all, I've read two other novels by Williams, and in my view he is one of the best contemporary novelists in the English-speaking world." - Donna Nissani, Author, LIVES IN THE BALANCE: The Cold War and American Politics, 1945-1991 ★★★★★

"What an eye opening book! Through a very interesting story line, the author has taught me more about government, politics, monetary systems, banking, and propaganda than I've previously learned in my fairly well-educated life. Like Plato's cave, I can't go back to ignorance. As a novel, this was a wonderful book. As an educational tool, it was eye opening!" - LaLaw ★★★★★

"Fabulous book. The author researched this well and created a universe that I wish we lived in. This is the best novel I have read in quite a while." - Ame ★★★★★

"This was one of the best fiction based on truth books I've ever read. If you have a question that we are being duped by the government this will enlighten you." - Patrick R. ★★★★★

From the Author

I researched and wrote much of this novel during the 2016 presidential race. I was shocked at the division I saw among the American public. Families and friends and Facebook warriors fought over their brand of politics, so certain that, if their candidate was elected, things would be better. People who I've never seen passionate about anything--not their family and certainly not their jobs--were passionate about the D or the R. It was eye-opening.

The Revolutionary War was fought and won with 3 percent of the population at the time. A tiny minority of Americans believe any government to be the antithesis to freedom and a scourge to be ignored out of existence. Many of these Anarchists and Voluntarists have well-reasoned, logical, and ethical arguments against government.

What if this group were to grow to 3 percent and beyond?

Governments around the world are responsible for 250-300 million democide deaths in the past century. These are deaths of a government killing its own people and do not include war-related deaths. In the United States today, we have endless wars, the largest prison population on the planet, debt money created out of thin air, and many layers of government that grow in size each year like tumors. Maybe it's time to stop looking to the government to solve our problems. Maybe it's time to see through the propaganda perpetrated by our schooling, our culture, and our media. Maybe it's time to see the true source of the problem.
