The next battle between liberty and tyranny is about to begin…
Mikael Carlson brings the omnipresent government surveillance and public manipulation weaves into this award-winning novel. The Black Swan Event is the action-packed introduction to a terrifying dystopian future in the epic speculative fiction saga America, Inc.
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.
People are now cogs in the corporate machine whose sole purpose is to enrich the elite. Every employee is monitored for any hint of subversion and subjected to the harshest penalties for even minor transgressions. Most of the world’s population has accepted this new reality. Not all of them have. The corporations call them “terrorists.” They call themselves humanity’s last, best hope for liberty.
When an underground group of dissenters detonates an explosion that causes problems with trading on the world’s sole stock exchange, a series of events are set in motion that threatens to unravel the fabric of society. Egos clash as bureaucrats, corporate executives, and wealthy elites play politics amid an unprecedented threat to their corporatist economic system. Are these black swan events the harbinger of another great collapse, or is it the spark needed for the light of liberty to shine once more?
