Dominique Cantrell, First Citizen of America is the second of three general/science fiction novels concerned with the future of American society.
The stability of our representative democracy is taken for granted by most Americans. And yet, a careful study of history suggests that economic, social, and political forces at work in contemporary America represent an internal threat to the survival of the greatest democratic republic in human history.
The novels comprising this trilogy are concerned with these forces and serve as cautionary tales. The Certification of America, Volume I in the series, suggested that the historically unprecedented polarization of wealth that is happening in the United States today could progress to class warfare and the establishment of a plutocracy. Dominique Cantrell, First Citizen of America raises the even more disturbing possibility that our treasured liberty could be lost to dictatorship and tyranny.
Lincoln warned that if the American Republic is destroyed, we the people will be responsible. Reform is possible. Steps could be taken to prevent the events described in these novels from happening.
As Nevil Shute suggested in On the Beach, an apocalyptic story about nuclear holocaust, there is still time.
