Mary by Sam French

The theme for this month is Tribalism.  Us and Them seems to be the default mode for humanity. It always has been and always will be.  That being said, alliances change. Paradigms shift. We look at today's polemics and wonder how anything could possibly change, but if history is any indicator - it will.  So we asked our writers to think about this and make some predictions... speculative, of course, none of this will actually HAPPEN (we don't think).  So for the month of January we'll be taking a look at tribes of the future starting with Brick Moon heavy-hitter Sam French and his story, "Mary."  

Espionage.  A secret mission.  A man sent undercover deep into enemy territory with one clear understanding and one clear objective:  Our side is right, their side is wrong - steal the pertinent information and take them down.  The order, the mission - it's all crystal clear... except... except for Mary...
