What could Mac say? He knew where this was all going but what could he do?
Emergency Order CBI341 excluded him from taking part and this was what alarmed him the most. Overnight the country became divided between those involved and everyone else. Mac was now part of the ‘everyone else.’
Mac received a letter in the post, confirming the fact that as ‘a reward for all you have already done for your country a grateful nation now exempts you from having to take part in Operation TurnBack.’
The letter made everything sound so plausible but Mac knew the true purpose of Operation TurnBack.
‘This is how civilizations are loosed from their footings’, he said to himself. ‘Raze the past and reset.’
‘Everyone begin from the beginning again.’
