“It is just one vision of one person from one dream as to one possible scenario for a world at the brink of annihilation amongst countless other visions and possibilities of the future to come. It is not a heart-warming vision but a harrowing tale of terror, fanaticism, pathogenic psychological madness and brutal conspiratorial plots to achieve factional and individual supreme power at any cost, regardless of the ultimate consequences for mankind and the already devastated and irradiated environment in a world where technology has regressed almost to a standstill.”
