WASHINGTON - Dec. 20, 2017 - PRLog -- Hold tight to your car, French fries, beer, cigarettes, fluoride toothpaste, sexy underwear, bacon, butter, coffee, and anything else that tastes good, feels good, or is fun to do because here comes Congress to ban it.

In his first full-length novel, launched during International Trust Your Government Week, prolific writer Walt Pilcher extrapolates current global politics to bring to life a worldwide Harmful Substances Race that threatens the sovereignty of nations.

"It might hold up an uncomfortable mirror showing helpless citizens looking on dumbfounded as government stupidity hits new highs," says Dan Grubb, CEO of Fantastic Books Publishing. "But at least it's a mirror that will make you laugh, and provide some respite from a world gone mad."

Author Walt Pilcher, now retired from a long and successful career in commerce and broadcasting, is well placed to satirize current global politics having experienced absurdity and authority hand-in-hand from an early age. Pythonesque long before Python, Pilcher tells the story of his high school science teacher who hurled a six-foot African spear in class destroying a bookcase and many books. "I took a simple lesson from this," he says. "You can't make this stuff up."

"In the current climate, it would have been hard to resist this book," Dan Grubb says, adding, "and the fact that Walt's a fantastic writer just clinched the deal."

Early reviews agree, one saying, "In a deft and entertaining finesse of a classic macroeconomic conundrum, Everybody Shrugged describes the ultimate government policy—depriving us of both guns and butter."
