The Black Swan Event
by Mikael Carlson
The next battle between liberty and tyranny is about to begin…
Following a global economic collapse in 2039 that brought governments to their knees, brutal violence and chaos spread across the globe. To fill the power vacuum, giant multinational corporations, backed by wealthy benefactors, seized the reins of power and began governing the masses. Nearly fifty years later, there is no crime, no unemployment, no homelessness, and no war. All that progress came at a price – individual freedom.
When an underground group of dissenters causes problems with trading on the world’s sole stock exchange, events threaten to unravel the fabric of society. Egos clash as corporate executives and wealthy elites play politics amid an unprecedented threat to the system. Are these black swan events the harbinger of another great collapse, or is it the spark needed for liberty’s light to shine again?
