Altered Carbon: The Woman Who Set Me Free
Published on March 9, 2018 by Paul Ciano
Rome was a town of refugee cattle herders, but it became the most powerful empire of ancient Earth. Do you know how? Roads. Roads were the technology that let them send their armies all over the world. I thought I was freeing the human spirit, but I was building the roads for Rome. Eternal life for those who can afford it, means eternal control over those who can’t. That is the gift I gave humanity, and that is the reason you’re all going to die. So stop looking at me like I’m a hero, because I am not.
I can’t stop looking at you. I won’t.
Forget heroes and monsters. You’re the woman who set me free.
