I highly recommend Will Stevenson’s story in Constant Vigilance. This book shines new light on the current contra virus pandemic. The book was written in 2015 but its account could have been drawn from current events. Is the narrative that the media is telling the truth of the matter. Or is there a darker story underneath the surface. The main character’s well earned cynicism would serve everyone well during this pandemic. Our world is changing, and remaining ever vigilant to ensure that our government acts in the best interest of the people has never been more important.
With the spread of Covid 19 across the globe questions have arisen as to the source of the virus. Constant vigilance explores a similar question. We live in an information age. What if the information is not accurate. The current term is “Fake New”.
This story chronicles the development of “Constant Vigilance” in an ordinary guy. He always questioned the truth behind the news. By happenstance, he finds himself in the cross hairs of powerful forces determined to control and prevent the spread of information that may harm their interest. The circumstances he stumbles into threaten his safety and his way of life. His path to understanding tests his beliefs and relationships.
The concept of Constant Vigilance has more relevance today than at any time in the history of the United States. Not only do we need to guard our liberty from the abuse of the power and authority that we have granted to our government, we also need to guard against the abuse of power garnered by multinational corporations. The story examines events from the past and interprets these events in a light that leads to the conclusion that the future of mankind is under threat..
