One of the issues that our heroes have to contend with in the novels is the general apathy of the populace. This is demonstrated best in book number two, DULCET when the government has imposed a second security check at the airports. This time, the check is made while deplaning.
As one of the characters points out, there can be no reason for this other than to demonstrate how much control the government has and how far people will let themselves be pushed around. People will grumble about things like warrantless searches of their vehicles, desecration of the flag and the release of known murderers and rapists back onto the streets because of ‘overcrowding’, but they won’t do anything about it, and they’ll vote the same politicians and judges’ right back into office.
This isn’t because they like what they see, it’s primarily because they don’t feel they have the power to change it. Who gets to see change? The ones that do violence. Violent protests seem to be the driving force behind change in this country lately. You won’t find me making heroes out of looters, thieves and those who trample on the Constitution in my books. If that is what you are looking for, keep moving.
If, on the other hand, you are looking for novels that try to portray the best of the human spirit and classic good versus evil, I would highly recommend that you start with the first book in the Sense Novels series. You can download AURA for FREE on Amazon.
