Once upon a future century, a young man with both feet firmly planted on the ladder of Establishment success discovered that the powers that be--the powers he served--were plotting to lock the planet into a suicidal course for their own profit.

It was a safe world, a happy world made comfortable for its human population by the machines - and even the machines had now developed into likable, personable androids, so much more pleasant to deal with than harsh-looking metal monsters. No one questioned the existence of the operational androids who ran the cities, the services, even the government, any more than they questioned their own hedonistic existence.

Matrix by Douglas R Mason( Book )
1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Joel Dill, Administrator of the Citizen's Resettlement Bureau, was obviously some kind of a maverick. In fact, anyone less suitable for the job he held could hardly have been found. Which only proved something he had been suspecting for some time--to wit, that the machines which had monitored his whole life and which had passed him for the job were not all that efficient. Not only that, some of the decisions they were now making were downright absurd--and worse, inhumanly cruel. And there were so many of them. Could they all be mistakes? If not---?
Ring of violence by Douglas R Mason( Book )
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Boyd Lassen was a man of decent instincts and no political ambitions. But once made an outcast by the primitive society founded on civilization's ashes, he had no choice but to lead the band of outsiders among which he was thrown. His new-found power taught him a necessary but dreadful lesson: To make a foundation for a decent world, absolute ruthlessness would be required of him. The poisonous landscape must be soaked with men's blood before peace could ever be made

Moons of Triopus by John Rankine( Book )
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Opposed to the exploitation of the newly found planet Triopus, Grant Kirby finds himself alone, and in constant danger. Earth's powerful politicians and businessmen want him silenced before he threatens their potentially lucrative discovery. Kirby believes that a menace exists on Triopus, but he can't prove it. Is he perhaps rationalizing his growing disillusionment with Earth and its bureaucrat-dominated social pattern? Reluctantly, he agrees to lead a group of colonists to the planet
