9-11 2.0 Fool Me Once . . .
Robert Revere, cannot get medicine, legal or elsewhere, to save his wife from Lou Gehrig’s disease--a fatal condition they suspect she contracted in the army. He joins his college-age son, Brandon, and his roommate, Dylan--an anti-government computer genius--in a series of bold displays focused toward the U.S. government and a corrupt drug company.
The trio uses creative activism to get the attention of the FDA and a big-pharma company called Phisbon Pharmaceuticals. They don’t blow anything up or kill anybody. They simply show that they could destroy infrastructure--while appealing for change. This attains them a following of millions rooting for them on the trio’s website--The Anger Express.
Unbeknownst to them, a sinister group of Globalists is setting them up as fall-guys for a west-coast 9-11. Bob and his humble band of heroes are deceptively blamed for the disaster in an excuse the government contrives to severely alter basic rights for all Americans.
In summary—the government blames a national disaster on a modern-day Robin Hood—then, in totalitarian fashion—restricts fundamental freedoms for all Americans.
