Notes on Fractional Autonomy Under the New Gods: 8/17-25 In Year One of the Advent of the Mask

21,385 words over 120 pages in Arial 12 point.
As the author, a wandering hobo who somehow predicted a host of evils which have since come to pass, sat at the table of his host at a meal of corned beef hash and eggs generously heaped, he was asked a question of some gravity. His host was a man with a growing, extended, family, most of whom are frails, who wanted to know, “What comes next?”
The author wryly answered, “Hopefully Phillip K. Dick will finally awaken from this acid trip and write us into the novel so that we can rest in peace as figments of his shattered imagination.”
The following book is this hobo habitant’s attempt to answer that question in a more fitting way by posing potential developments within our currently imploding social matrix and possible coping mechanisms.
