Refugees of Earth fled to the Moon, banning technology because it destroyed their life. Many years later, it was reintroduced. There was a great divide between who chose to accept it and those who didn't. A great war is on the horizon for the people of Neo-G.
After aliens were discovered controlling the world governments behind the scenes, there was a brutal war and mankind was enslaved. But humans are not alone in this conflict. There is an alignment of other star systems that are helping humans secretively. This may be Earth's fighting chance.
Reality screams to be adhered. Why? If facts and statistics are foolproof, why would it matter that people accept them? Is it to save them from humiliating themselves? When things happen that make one question the nature of reality, it's hard not to accept those as facts too.
