A Collective Craving
Victoria W. Thoresen
2029. When a tall slender man in a shiny red car arrives, the lives of nine seemingly ordinary people will be changed forever. In a world where morals are crumbling, commercial interests dominating and natural resources collapsing, a new global government has been formed to take on the ever-increasing and frightening challenges to humanity. But who will lead?
With AI as their guide and protection, the selected nine create a team entrusted with the formidable task of finding the leader with specific qualities identified by the people of the world.
But not everyone is in agreement with world-wide collaboration, and some are determined to stop the process dead in its tracks.
Can the team find the new leader? Can they overcome personal challenges, attacks on the programme, and their own preconceptions?
This is a thought-provoking story about the heights of human aspirations, the limits of artificial intelligence, and the complexities of undivided loyalty.
