"The Corporation comes first. Always.
The needs of the Corporation come before my own.
I exist for the Corporation and the Corporation exists for me.
I will obey and honor Corporate law.
One Corporation under the mighty Credit."
- from The Corporate Pledge
Reminiscent of stories such as 1984, Fahrenheit 451 and Brave New World, Escape From CorpWorld is a timely tale that is at once terrifying and amusing, thought provoking and heartwarming. The city of New Boston... In the world of Aaron Cogwell going to work at his Corporation seven days a week for a minimum seventeen hour work day is the norm. Weekends are an archaic thing of the very distant past. Now there are workends: Four hour work stoppages every thirty-six days. The Corporations are nothing if not efficient. People are judged by marks such as Corporate status, the size and class of their residence and by how much "stuff" they have in their display chambers. And this information is all very public and available for viewing on the HRN. Government still exists but is a small and meaningless footnote in a very large Corporate world. People now pledge allegiance to their Corporation. Aaron is more than happy with his life like this. He's thankful to his Corporation for all it has given him. For all of the stuff that he and his wife have been able to accumulate. They were given this life by the Corporation. And they are forever loyal for it. Then again this is all Aaron or anyone else in CorpWorld has ever known. There are no alternatives. At least that is what Aaron believes. Until one day a major event changes his life’s course and he meets a mysterious stranger who helps him to realize that, indeed, there is a choice.
