View Excerpt

Freedom and Equality--the two great virtues. Over these laudable ideals, wars have been fought, dynasties uprooted, and countless lives sacrificed to the flames of revolution.

They are what we call in the Mau'b tongue fusa'l and what you, in your fancy words, call "Unaliable Rights." But, really, are Freedom and Equality rights?

Freedom, certainly. All people, regardless of race, nationality, or identity are free to make whatsoever choices they wish, as long as they are willing to pay the consequences. All choices have consequences, some good, some bad, but responsibility must be claimed by the one who makes the decision.

So, Freedom is a fusa. But Equality? Ah, reader, when have men ever been equal?

- Mau'ab Masib, Ravings of a Sane Lunatic

(This is the opening of the novel, a quote from a book written by the main character.)
