"We pledge to invest in mercy, love and kindness,
To achieve mercy; we must be empathetic,
To achieve love; we must be non-violent,
To achieve kindness; we must be compassionate."
Universal Sentient Rights
Iania Hari wanted to shout for help, but no one in their right mind would help her. She had committed - MURDER - the unthinkable crime in her world. When the Unified Earth (UE) officers came to arrest her and announce in their monotone voices, Iania refused to believe it. They had irrefutable evidence that she had violated the Universal Sentient Rights, and she had no choice but to follow them. Now, Iania would need the help of a court consultant, but can she trust Gracen to prove her innocence to the jury of the world?
The year was 2310 and CE45 - the cosmic explosion in 2045 - had pushed Earth to the brink of extinction until wealthy corporations formed the UE Committee. They created artificial planetary shields and invented cydroids that prolonged human survival on a dying planet. The two habitable areas were divided into two types of societies - rich Northerners in the Arctic and the overcrowded populations of Antarctica. Can Iania get these two societies to vote 'not guilty' in her trial and save her from a life in prison?
