"This is Safe Haven Refugee Camp. Can anyone hear me? …hello? Is anyone out there?
Fated to lead New America, seven gifted people survive a nuclear apocalypse only to find themselves on a cross-country quest through horrors that will shake the very core of who they thought they were. These long-denied protectors of humanity are destined to rebuild their country…if they can stay alive long enough to find each other.
“The end of the world has given us a harsh, merciless existence, where nature tries hard to push humanity to the very brink of extinction. Everything is against us, between us. Untold miles of lawless, apocalyptic roads wait for our feet, and the future, cold and dark, offers little comfort. Without change, there can be no peace. Only survivors.”
Sorry... I've had it. Right wing patriarchal jingoistic, one dimensional, fear mongering drivel feeding simple uncritical minds with the stinking lies of a right wing authoritarian consciousness.
Exceptionalistan strikes again. The sad loss of an illusion, delusion that never existed.
I hated this book. I couldn't finish. I direct those who might be puzzled by the review to read Howard Zinn's " A People's History of the United States" or " Columbus and other Cannibals" or the journals of Fra De las Casas who accompanied Columbus. No. I'm not entirely sure of what I'm trying to express. This book contains premises that imply a world view that I loathe. An arrogant complacency that assumes a heartbreaking loss of something that has NEVER existed. Build a picture from the acknowledgment of a nation that got its start from the genocide of indigenous people, the enslavement of other people, constant war and belligerence.... I could go on but what's the point.
