The end came suddenly.
Without warning, essential public utilities were dismantled.
Corporate food outlets were shuttered.
It wasn’t long before the rioting started.
A hellish world just got exponentially worse.
Behind walled fortresses the corporate overlords of earth
had seen the end coming.
Their exit strategy was directed at the stars.
Whilst the ravaged populace would tear them self apart.
they would escape to off world colonies.
