Product Description

In the future world, they had a legislature modeled after the U.S. Senate. It was called the Spentit. Spentitors seemed to be in a perpetual election campaign which affected the laws that passed. In their society, nearly everything was illegal. They had a war on crime, a war on drugs, a war on poverty, and so on. Then the Spentitors came up with the brilliant idea of uniting them all into one and called it the War On Everything, or WOE.

With so many arrests, their legal system collapsed under the pressure. To save it, and speed things along, court became a game show. For the citizen, becoming a contestant usually meant a long stay at Calcatraz, the vast prison state.

With the government spending so much money on the WOE, the standard of living was declining for the average citizen. In the past, citizens could count on having a good job, which allowed them to own their own dwelling, have their own transportation, and save for some kind of retirement. They called it the Dream. Unfortunately, it was a thing of the past. The current generation had a new name for the Dream. They called it the JOKE, which was short for Janitors Or Kitchen Engineers (fry cooks), the only types of jobs left for them. Getting a JOKE wasn’t funny, it was a job you survived paycheck to paycheck on.

Against this background, a young man becomes disillusioned with society. In his quest for meaning he inadvertently released the seeds of freedom in the form of an unknown type of music. This music was enthusiastically embraced by musical genius Johnny Applepie. Forming a new band named Hoodlum Youth, Johnny pitched aside all pretense of conformity to their society. On stage, he would wear what he called his ‘moon’ pants because mooning the government revealed what he thought of them.

Johnny’s hit tunes were, My Piece of the Pie is Rotten, and I Am the Little Man.

The Message Of Applepie is a futuristic science fiction novel combined with themes of a contemporary political satire. The novel length is over 55,000 words.
