Anthem takes place at some unspecified future date when mankind has entered another dark age. Technological advancement is now carefully planned and the concept of individuality has been eliminated where instead of names people are called by numbers and always use pronouns like we, us, they. In such a controlling society can mankind ever find its own individuality again? Ayn Rand (1905–1982) was a Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter. She is known for her two best-selling novels, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, and for developing a philosophical system she called Objectivism.

Count Down: The Concise Epitaph of Humanity

There are thousands, no, millions of words that describe, define, or typify human endeavor. From self-help guides to precise biology, everything known about humanity is splashed on page after page, and has been so since the creation of the written word.

Earth is invaded, no, overborne by an unstoppable and inexorable enemy from beyond our dimension. These beings, beyond our comprehension, have begun to destroy our world, and have tendered an ultimatum. They demand that an unknown author, chosen seemingly at random, be tasked with giving a full disclosure, and a true apology for all of humankind, and in that same document he must explain to the impending executioners why we should be pardoned and allowed to live.

Count Down, however, is a very different kind of book, and you simply must read it, because it may mean the difference in your life from this point on. While it is a cautionary tale at this point, we could find ourselves in the specific situation where just such a book may be our only hope. If you have read dystopian literature, you have experienced the almost-but-not-quite version of Count Down.

This is the real deal. You will be glad you read it, and the compulsion to share with others will be inexorable. Because ultimately, how does one apologize for the species, and how does one explain the inexplicable?

Count Down will challenge you, engage you in your own explanation, your own words to explain and define what it is that drives you, how you think, what you do. It will not only cause you to question your motives, it will galvanize your convictions.

Don’t wait another minute. You have ten thousand words. Do what you can.
