Revolution, 51st Century by Ross Gallen, critically examines what happens to life as we know it because of the Administration’s policy of appeasement. The novel is set in the 51st Century following the cataclysmic nuclear attack of Muslim extremists on the US population centers, in waning days of the Swanson administration.
Three hundred million Americans perished in the attack. Mass sterility and gene defects were the event of the day. The President ordered the Secretary of State to find a way to reconstitute the American way of life. She turned to gene splicing and genetic ladder engineering.
The total focus of the country was on survival at any price. Democratic institutions and the arts withered. Three thousand years following the Great War babies were no longer conceived in their mothers’ wombs. Birthing was done in a lab, with gene splicing aimed at creating units to serve the interest of the Secretariat. Democratic institutions had long since ceased to exist. The life span was extended to 150 years. Men and women no longer married because procreation was also done in the lab, and children were raised in Kinder Hauses. Children who were deemed unfit were harvested for their organs and summarily dispatched.
On a routine training mission, Gaul an officer in the Combat Infantry Legion discovers the library. He was in shock when he read the thoughts of Thomas Paine. He came to the realization that the Secretariat must be overthrown, accompanied by the restoration of democratic reform.
This is his story as he fights to gain what 21st Century Americans take for granted. It is a quest for justice in a cruel world that has little or no respect for the human condition.
