. . . I Wrote The Experiment.
I realize this is a major
stretch for an A-Z post, but I didn't really have much to say about the
weather, and I've been wanting to blog about this for a while.
I want to say first off that I didn't write The Experiment
because dystopian is "in." I didn't even learn the word "dystopian"
until I had completed all but my very last revision, and that revision,
while it contained a major rewrite of the ending, was due to comments
from a test reader, not to having discovered the dystopian genre.
Besides, I'm not really sure The Experiment actually is
dystopian. "Political thriller" seems to suit it better. But the reason
I wrote it is the reason I think dystopian stories are popular. Because
I wrote The Experiment
because America is heading downhill fast. Even as I wrote it, I worried
that the events portrayed in it would become outdated before I finished.
Indeed, I hoped it would be in that America would turn around and get
back on track. Alas, we have only continued downward. I wrote The Experiment as part of my endeavor to warn people and wake them up to what is happening.
A major part of The Experiment
is the government using public schools to indoctrinate people to their
cause and control them. This isn't wild speculation. The government is
trying to do this. Look at all the regulations placed on schools. The
schools and teachers are so wrapped in red tape they can no longer truly
teach. Common Core is a major part of this. It creates national
standards for education, which is truly a very bad thing. Everyone is
different, but Common Core forces everyone to be exactly the same.
Reginald's experiments are something that I sincerely hope will always
remain science fiction, but sometimes I have my doubts. My mom has sent
me links to several articles which indicate that scientists are trying
to do similar things. One article even mentioned a Google person saying
it might be possible someday to upload your brain to the internet. I
hope it isn't true, but it's scary to think it might be possible.
I don't focus much on religious persecution in The Experiment,
but that is something else that I believe is coming. If you look at all
the anti-Christian agenda being pushed everywhere, you will see I'm not
being a conspiracy theorist. Prayer outlawed in schools, but Muslim
indoctrination classes mandated; the constant slaughter of unborn
children; perversion considered normal; immorality accepted . . .
America is no longer a Christian nation. My pastor even said yesterday
in his sermon that though we have not yet experienced religious
persecution in America, he thinks it is not far off.
am not a crazy conspiracy theorist. Yes, I have an active imagination,
but it is not imagination that makes me think America is on the brink of
destruction. I have been greatly involved in politics for about ten
years now, since I was eight years old, and I pay close attention to
national, state, and local politics. I have studied our founding
documents and principles and helped to teach them. I have listened
to talk radio almost every day since I was five, and have learned quite a
lot about the true state of our nation. I pay attention to what goes on
in this nation, and where we are headed is not a good place. I want
people to know what is happening to America.
And that is why I wrote The Experiment.
