The elites in government have gone too far. They taxed, spent, regulated, and redistributed until the once great American economy started to implode. They vilified businesses and business owners in an effort to shift blame for the damage their policies had done. A group of freedom loving entrepreneurs refuse to live in the wreckage of the economy, or under the thumb of the political elite, so they conspire to defy the government. Sean Murphy suddenly finds himself in the middle of the conspiracy, and at odds with a thug from the newly created Office of Economic Realignment, when he discovers that his philosophically inclined father is not only a part of the conspiracy, he's the leader.
While working to protect his father and keep the plan from being discovered, Sean tries to figure out what went wrong with the elites' plans when they had all seemed so good to so many people in the beginning. How did all of their wonderful plans result in a crashing economy and bureaucratic thugs dominating people's lives? He is also fascinated to learn about the philosophy that is driving his father and his fellow conspirators to defy the government when many people in their position are willing to sell-out and many others are simply in despair.
The Tamarack Conspiracyhonors entrepreneurs and working people. It holds freedom sacred and explores the philosophical and spiritual value of America to the world. Written in the spirit of Atlas Shrugged, but with more of a sense of humor (and a more accessible length), The Tamarack Conspiracy will resonate with those who understand that free people, working creatively, will generate far more progress and better solutions to problems than government elites can possibly provide.
