Direct Descent

by Frank Herbert
Release date: 1980
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Earth was the archive of all human learning, its small population dedicated to the endless task of finding and preserving new information, new truths. An isolated, peaceful haven, Earth freely broadcast to the entire galaxy the greatest resource of them all – knowledge.

Then the warships came.

What good then was truth against the guns of the military, the megalomania of the dictator, the crude violence of the ignorant? Trapped, defenceless, the archivists' only strategy was complete obedience to the oppressors. It seemed they could only save themselves by becoming slaves.
