Just a generation ago this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of UN-lead program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as the 'Republic'. There is no president. No congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom.
There are only the Authorities.
Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life.
Those who cannot do either are of no use to society.
This bleak and barren existence is all that 18-year-old Emmeline has ever known. She dutifully walks her energy board daily and accepts all male pairings assigned to her by the Authorities. Like most citizens, she keeps her head down and her eyes closed.
Until the day they came for her mother.
Woken up to the harsh reality of her life and her family's future inside the Republic, Emmeline begins to search for the truth. Why are all citizens confined to ubiquitous concrete living spaces? Why are Compounds guarded by Gatekeepers who track all movements? Why are food, water and energy rationed so strictly? And, most important, why are babies taken from their mothers at birth?
As Emmeline begins to understand the true objectives of Agenda 21, she realizes that she is up against far more than she ever thought. With the Authorities closing in, and nowhere to run, Emmeline embarks on an audacious plan to save her family and expose the Republic - but is she already too late?

The story is compelling and the character development is very real. This could be a preview into world we are headed into if our society does not wake up. The meaning of "recycled" is changing. Be afraid, very afraid.
I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
This book takes what at first peak seems like an adult verson of "The hunger games" then they add sex as one of the objects of fear and boom the adults are the perfect audience. The author's writing is somewhat charming in a clumsy way. The epilouge is chilling and it proves the non-fiction writing skills this author has been given. The epilouge made this a five-star experience. The eight hour used on this book seems like a highly well-crafted plan to turn this into a one-sitting listen. Perfect for a long car trip etc. I think it serves you best as a listen in one sitting alongside family and friends ready to discuss it in great detail.
The way they brainwash it's children and the chilling epilouge.
Lissie: She was a product of brain-washing from the day she was born.
"The secret agenda of the UN."
Do a search for Agenda 21.
This book gives insites to what to expect from the current push for Agenda 21.
I don't know , I didn't try to read the book. I drive truck for a living.

I like Glenn Beck and I trust him. He is a great writer. It was excellent.
Good info in the book, kinda slow and predictable
The author is a reliable source of accurate information
Hearing this truth while being productive.
John who knew how to escape.
Socialism does Not work!
Yes, I would recommend it and have recommended it. I think it is so completely revelant for today. Ayn Rand would be proud of Glenn Beck...Today's true hero
The book was slow moving and the main character was confused the whole book about what was going on. The book took the long way to tell the story. It would of been better if they told a story about how to bring down Agenda 21. A disappointment from The Overton Window .
I was educated into oblivion but have overcome and am having a wonderful life
I have to listen to books because when I read I become immobilized and sit and sit and sit. Before bed I can do that but not on every day that I have off. So I listen as I drive, do dishes, etc.
When "mother" just gave up and stopped walking the activity board. When there's no hope it's hard to keep on.
What past society / culture hasn't believed "it can't happen here"? To think that is human nature. Yet historical reports illustrate that when it happens it happens quickly. We need to pay attention to the local and municipal trends regarding private property, the right to use self defense, the right to worship. We have the most precious gift of all: personal freedom. Let's keep our eyes on the ball.
