Quick Overview

Aleph McNaught is simply trying to make a point. He wants to tilt the axis of the old world order just enough to make a difference to the way people think. Only then can the megalomania of politics, economics, society and religion cause the old world order to spin out and unravel. In its place, a new world order will gather up the threads on an axis realigned to the demands of an ever evolving 21st century world of chaos, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, crypto currencies, cloud computing, high frequency stock trading, high frequency terror threats, catastrophic climate change fallout, mind bending with false memories and fake news, mental illnesses like post traumatic stress disorder and drug-induced psychosis, and whatever other pet hate humanity may have in store for us.

An anger tsunami often tosses and rolls the eccentric Aleph McNaught because he doesn’t have the means to compete or the gall to exploit others. Nor does he possess the nerve to take advantage of a situation, or the sense of self-worth to confront an adversary. When he has endured enough torment and can take no more, he changes up a gear from a scream to something turbocharged to vent his frustration and help alleviate the pain. Disenchanted and exhausted by a dysfunctional government, social rejection and the economy and religion encroaching on his personal life, Aleph proposes an absurd other-worldly alternative government that ‘offers nothing but keeps its promises’. He invites the reader to participate in this love affair with his beloved crippled country on the promise that it will linger longer than the usual tryst and can last forever if the reader dares commit to it.
