Foreword

This is the English version of the second book of Alexander Merow`s "Prey World" series. The novel was translated by Thorsten Weber and the writer.

It is still no professional translation and the translator is still no "native speaker" or English teacher. He is just a guy, who loves science-fiction and dystopias. So try not to laugh at some of the translated phrases, or the wrath of a real freak will come over you! And Mr. Merow and his friend are really some kind of "freaks".

The author has already found a lot of interested readers all over Germany, and we hope that he will also find some new readers in the English-speaking countries. Furthermore, we would be glad, if a "real" mother-tongue speaker would edit this English version one day.

Now the fight against the World Government and the New World Order goes on. By the way, soon the fourth part of the "Prey World" series will be published in Germany. And we will also translate the third part, Prey World III – Organized Rage, in the next months. Anyway, have fun with this book and start thinking about the world we live in. We are sure, that you will find a lot of similarities to reality.

And always remember...

"Only a fool would think that "Prey World" is nothing but fiction!" (Alexander Merow)

?In a few generations, maybe in hundred or two hundred years, mankind will have died out, if we define a human being as a thinking and inventing individual. Beyond doubt, a human being like this will no longer exist in the future. But there will be only one exception – us!

The rest of the creatures, creeping over the surface of this planet, will be something else than human beings in the old sense. They will still have a human body, more or less, but the difference between these "man-things" and a livestock will be hardly to recognize.

At this point in time, the old world will have been long gone. Nobody will remember it anymore, because the "man-things" we will create, will no longer be able to remember any higher form of culture. All history will have been rewritten in our sense and the only thing these "man-things" will understand, will be the order to serve. We will decimate earth`s population to get rid of those who are nothing but useless eaters. The rest of the human pulp may survive to serve us. Moreover, there will remain a small group of elite drudges with a rudimentary intelligence, the petty officers of our New World Order. We will control and form them from the womb to the tomb. And they will be our most fanatical servants, always eager to relay the pressure we put on them to the mass of mindless peons below them.

This will be the perfect compliance of the Great Plan of the Elders. This will be the predicted world of milk and honey for us. So it is written, and so it shall be done..."

Brother Obitus in: "The Holy Scriptures of the Wise Men", Chapter XXXIII, "The New Temple"

"Nothing is efficient in Oceania except the Thought Police!"

George Orwell, "1984"

"In Oceania at the present day, science, in the old sense, has almost ceased to exist. In Newspeak there is no word for "Science". The empirical method of thought, on which all the scientific achievements of the past were founded, is opposed to the most fundamental principles of Ingsoc. And even technological progress only happens when its products can in some way be used for the diminution of human liberty. In all the useful arts the world is either standing still or going backwards. The fields are cultivated with horse plows while books are written by machinery. But in matters of vital importance – meaning, in effect, war and police espionage – the empirical approach is still encouraged, or at least tolerated."

George Orwell, "1984"

Sunrise

The summer of the year 2030 had begun, and the rising heat penetrated the capital of the newly founded state of Japan to the last corner of the endless street canyons. Tokyo resembled an enormous hotplate and its citizens groaned under the torrid sunbeams.

A sun had risen in the Far East, at the outermost end of the Asian continent, as the national flag of old and new Japan had always symbolized it. Haruto Matsumoto, the president of the island state, sat in the garden of his mansion in the outskirts of Tokyo and pondered. Everything around him flowered, insects hummed quietly and a blue sky opened itself above him. It was wonderful today - and very hot. But the president hardly noticed the world around him. His thoughts stuck in the middle of a swamp of concerns and fear, and even the blue sky which expanded above his country could not change this.

The president of Japan sat down on a couch and read once more the reports of the foreign press which casted a poor light on him and his country. After a while, he put the papers away and stared angrily at the sky.

His old friend, the Japanese foreign minister Akira Mori, sat beside him and was still studying the current reports of the international media. From time to time he just murmured quietly and looked at Matsumoto. Finally he put the newspapers aside, straightened up and folded his arms. Behind the two thoughtful men, the outlines of the Fujiyama, the great, old mountain, dominated the horizon.

The "Fujisan" or ?Mr. Fuji", as the Japanese called their admired mountain, seemed to mount guard over the capital. But if this mystic mountain could really protect the Japanese nation was uncertain.

?Will it go on forever – in this manne

r?", asked Matsumoto his good friend and advisor.

?I don`t think, that they will just stop this campaign tomorrow", answered Akira Mori and took another newspaper from a table.

?This hate is incomprehensible to me. One day, they will call me a child murderer!", said the president, full of frustration.

?The cartoon you, in the ?Global Policy News", as a dung beetle that wants to throw a bomb at the world", replied the foreign minister. "You will have to live with this form of agitation, Haruto!"

?Over 89% of the Japanese have voted for me! Yes, 89%! And these wily rats of the foreign press tell the world that I have just deceived my own people!", grumbled Matsumoto.

Akira Mori, who did not expect any other behaviour from the international media, and was more realistic than the Japanese president and answered: ?You have dared a lot, when you have liberated our country from the World Union. You have created an independent Japan and have furthermore given our land back to the Japanese. So be glad about your achievements, my friend.

The economy blooms under your hands and the our people admire you. This is the best time for Japan since many decades. Just ignore those liars of the press. The damn lies of a press, controlled by the Lodge Brothers and the World Government. It is just their usual strategy to defame all forces of freedom on this planet.

The time will come, when even other nations wake up and break their chaines. You have shown the rest of the world that resistance is possible. Millions of men and women look up at you, because our country is their symbol of freedom and hope. However, don`t forget your mission, Haruto!"

?Nevertheless, the price is high...", said Matsumoto.

"Of course, you are right! But even the worldwide boycott of our goods has not carried the fruits that the World Government has expected!", answered Mori with an aggressive countenance. ?Japan stands like a strong rock in the sea!"

?Will they start a war against us?", asked the president haggardly.

The foreign minister was silent for a short moment. "I don`t hope so, Haruto..."

The two men stared at each other and finally turned around. Then they looked together at the Fujisan and the snowy peak of the mountain reminded them of the white beard of an old, wise man. "Mr. Fuji", the ancient father of the Japanese nation.

He had always been there, hard and steadfast – and Matsumoto wished to have only a little piece of his power. It was not easy to rule over a renegade nation, a country of dissidents. Millions of Japanese people had given him all their hope and trust, but Matsumoto just feared to dissapoint them. Japan was isolated and enemy troops conglomerated at its borders. A peaceful future seemed to be nothing but an illusion.

The goods of the island people, formerly appreciated in all other countries, were now proscribed and rejected by the surrounding administrative sectors. The conversion of the Japanese economy to bigger autarky, became increasingly difficult and laborious. Occasionally, Matsumoto thought about giving up, because his fight often seemed to be futile. He sometimes wished to be just a "private person" again, free from all responsibility. But he wouldn`t have had a private life, even if he would have given up. His enemies wanted to take revenge on him and hated him for the fact that he had led his country to independence. Since he had abolished the interest system some weeks ago, in his eyes the root of all evil, the hateful nagging of the international press had become a true hurricane of slander.

Only his friend, Akira Mori, was able to keep his crumbling morale up, again and again. Even in times of deepest resignation and hopelessness. He was a gift of heaven, this foreign minister with the heart of steel.

The two politicians were silent and knew deep inside that the possibility of a war against their country was anything but improbable, if the economic boycott and the malicious campaign was not successful enough.

But they still continued to hope for peace. Matsumoto went into the house and sat down in his office, Mori followed him. Today it was valid to prepare another governmental declaration which would suggest the World Government a peaceful solution of the conflict. However, the danger that it would find deaf ears again, grew with each applying day more and more. Even if the day was as beautiful and sunny like this.

?If they ignore our declaration again, then remember the old Romans!", said Mori to the president.

?They will probably reject it. Everything else would be nothing but a miracle, Akira", answered Matsumoto and shook his head.

?Then I will tell you something! A proverb of the old Romans, from a time in which they had been in sustained conflict with their contiguous tribes in ancient Italy: ?Who wants peace, prepares for war!"

?I just want peace and also want to safe our people from another war. Apart from that, we wouldn`t have a chance against the forces of the World Government", groaned Matsumoto and hold his head.

"You must take war into your account. Don`t be a dreamer!", muttered Mori and clapped his friend gently on the shoulder. ?I also pray for peace, but mind the worst case too…"

"The decision to become a politician was the biggest mistake of my whole life", hissed Matsumoto desperately and kicked against his desk.

"You brought the good thing to the people of Japan! Never forget that! We will also come through this crisis!", said the foreign minister with a humorless undertone.
