The greatest tragedy the world has ever known turned out to be the ultimate catalyst for change. In the wake of World War III, which decimated most of the world’s population, the remaining survivors vowed to not continue to repeat the same mistakes of the past. Fortunately, they had something previous generations did not have – advanced technology.

The year is 2117 and this once shattered civilization has become prosperous again. Innovative forms of technology have enabled them to abandon the old model and re-engineer a better way of living for all. Brain implants and genetic modifications have made an entire population educated, healthy, and kind.

Despite the benefits of this technology, it has created some unforeseen side effects that threaten humankind’s existence. When technology proves to be inept at solving the world’s problem, a new hope emerges in the unlikeliest form – a young orphan girl.

Yano that's not a bad idea. There are obviously pros and cons, but I think it's good for regulation of population and to keep kids from suffering conditions that could potentially cause long term damage
this reminds me of an episode of doctor who bc they had all the info like downloaded into their brains and it was kinda creepy

Someone said ' your freedom starts when the other's ends ' I feel like this book is going in that way ... This society is seeming to keep people from freedom ( not choosing the education , the kids ...) It's peace because the people aren't free , and war begins were freedoms begins .

I like that Internet based democracy where everyone can vote on everything. It sounds like a good idea...until the hackers appear, that is xD
