Revolted Colonies is going on hiatus. Like many other people attempting to write about the political rift in our country, I am at a loss for words and voice to comment on the state of this Union. It seems that no matter how far from the White House a story starts, it eventually finds its way back – or to Mar-a-Lago or Bedminister. It’s tiresome, in addition to being unbecoming most of the time, veering occasionally into horrifying.
So I will sum up for now. The country is in open warfare over who will control America. America in the 21st Century began with existential terror and has never recovered. America also is not reconciled to its demographic composition. The election of Barack Obama blew the lid off the White Nationalist movements boiling just beneath it. The backlash election of Donald Trump and his presidency have re-ignited white supremacists.
At the same time, we are ignoring our burning planet. Eventually, there won’t be much left to fight over.
