ANCIENT ALIEN DEMONS CONSPIRE WITH HUMAN HENCHMEN TO DEPOPULATE THE EARTH
In The Conspirators, by W.R. Reinhardt, Earth balances precariously at the tipping point of survival due to global climate changes. The likelihood looms of Mutual Assured Destruction in an exchange of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. In order to save Earth, invisible Aliens manipulate a powerful cadre of human Illuminati. The multibillionaires vow to reduce the planet's population by ninety percent within one generation through perpetual warfare, viral pandemics, and environmental destruction.
The Immortals invoke their plan to save Earth from complete environmental destruction and shed the cruel chains of Alien bondage from the humans. The Immortals seek allies among the humans who would be suitable citizens of a civilization of peaceful Immortals who would thrive in an Earth made new.
The Aliens also seek allies among the humans, offering inducements that include riches, fame, power, and a lifetime of pleasurable pursuits. As the Alien demons work their will into the psyche of their human allies, the humans become unwitting hosts, possessed by demons.
The author mixes literary techniques akin to John Bunyan and C.S. Lewis in a tale wherein demons are constrained by Rules of Engagement, and Lucifer teaches object lessons to his Legionnaires in holographic chambers and in live events. Holy angels enforce the Rules which prevent demons from wielding undue influence.
This sci-fi novel engages societal norms, religion, and philosophy in a contemporary satire. The events of the novel certainly summon current big-picture issues like global climate change, perpetual war, nuclear disarmament, viral pandemics, civil unrest, and human trafficking.
IN A DISTURBING YET ENTERTAINING FASHION, REINHARDT DEMONSTRATES THE ANALYSIS OF A DEEP THINKER WHO VOICES CONCERNS ABOUT CURRENT TRENDS WHICH DEFY SIMPLE SOLUTIONS.
