Liber8 are an integral part of what separates Continuum from other time travel and police procedural television series. A hazy line between what is right and wrong makes Liber8 such an intriguing cast of characters. Each is a skilled leader in a different discipline. They are specialists in tactics, weapons, engineering, survival, politics and social manipulation.
The members of Liber8 that travel back to 2012 and wreak havoc consists of eight extremely diverse and dedicated men and women, some educated, some simply brutal monsters, all sharing a desire to bring down civilization so that it may be re-built to serve them and their ideas. They represent the disenfranchised minority of the future that has found themselves out of step with the modern world they are living in.
For many, it will be hard not to agree with their philosophy -- but for most, it will be impossible to agree with their methods. In their time, they galvanized a force of lawless, desperate people and raised a motivated army that laid waste to several cities. They were stopped in their tracks just short of taking out the corporate leadership of the day.
Once captured and facing death for their crimes, they realized their only move was to attempt the impossible. Armed with a scientific genius in their midst, they chose the path of experimental time travel even though it was likely to kill them. Their plan was to only travel back a few years and correct a course that would take them to defeat, replacing it with one that would ensure victory.
This attempt failed on the one hand, but may yet succeed on the other. In travelling further back than planned, they have simply complicated their objectives. With hard work and criminal ingenuity, they can still accomplish all of their goals, assuming Kiera Cameron doesn’t stop them first.
Learn the truth before it is too late.
We are being enslaved by faceless masters who have convinced us it is for our own good. No more can we walk blindly into the lion’s den. No more can we lie silent to the abuse of control through monetary means. No more shall we allow the corporations to affect our way of living.
Rise up and free ourselves! LIBER8!
