The Fight for Freedom

A country in need of political reform cannot be saved until a nefarious crime ring is brought to its knees

Fredericksburg, VA – June 19, 2009 — A billionaire patriot and philanthropist, Martin Lochridge, discovers what is to be his legacy in a lecture hosted by a small non-profit in Maine. He spends the next 10 years forming Ops Populi, the secretive organization that ultimately will put his legacy into action: a massive campaign for a peoples’ constitutional convention which will, he hopes, result in a United States where the ideals of the Founders can finally be attained and where the potential to end human suffering can be realized.

But the person who inspired Ops Populi – political scientist and National Guardsman, Sean May – is immersed in a ring of corruption with his unwitting companion, Virginia Burress, and Lochridge must first rescue them from their perilous quagmire in order to have any hope of May’s help in implementing Ops Populi’s plans.

Mike Lieber wrote his political thriller Inception, the first in the Ops Populi series, to illustrate how in practice, elites dominate our society through carefully and jealously guarded control of our nation’s political and economic power centers – those public and private institutions that establish and enforce the rules of our society.

While our system has functioned well for the most part, it has been virtually unchanged for over 230 years, and it is fast becoming apparent that the unchecked avarice of the established elite will soon bring about the demise of our Republic unless “we the people” assert our sovereignty and take back control of our country. Nothing less than the long-term viability of the country and the well-being of future generations is at stake.
