I've posted my new short story "Alas, Brave New Babylon;" I hope you will find time to read it, and possibly share it around the internet. My goal is for it to be noticed by the statists and liberals, who will of course hate it, thereby instigating a discussion about the cultural rot they have been spreading, and it's likely consequences.

Can you imagine teenagers the day after SHTF.

Life with no TV or internet or cell phone or stupid music.

Knowing that most of their favored celebrities are probably starving too.

Forced to help mom and dad dig up the backyard to raise a garden, go hunting and fishing with dad, help mom can the veggies etc

School would look real good real fast. lol

Alas, Brave New Babylon” new fiction by Matt Bracken

"When the ad hoc “town council” voted that cannibalism would not be considered a crime if the body was already dead when found, I took it as my cue to leave for deeper in the mountains.

"How had it happened so fast?"

Powerful story. Check it out.

Thanks, Travis McGee

Awesome story Matt/Travis ;)

Pretty much how it will happen. Now watch it get around and the ‘oh no thats just a redneck fantasy’ crowd try to pooh pooh it off.

Except if anyone thinks about it for more than 2 min, there’s not one thing in there that wouldn’t happen exactly as described.

Absolutely chilling... brilliant...and prescient.

Thank you, brother. You captured it perfectly.

May it never come to pass, and if it does, God grant us the mercy to survive and the strength to be able to stand.

Thanks Travis.

A chilling, entirely plausible look into what may await us.

Great story, Matt! It’s very depressing, but realistic. We truly have built our own Tower of Babel, just ready to fall.

Excellent piece Matt. Unfortunately, even if the libs and statists read it, they will give it no mind.

Keep up the good fight and thanks.
