I thought this was an important and, on the whole, plausible vision of the future. Climate change of an extreme nature not fair down the pike, and Trump is telling Texans that the Dems would cut off their oil. Demagoguery with climate could create a world like this one, where one side of the nation fights the other. I thought it showed that the author had read southern literature and knew what alliances and vengeance looked like in real world settings. My mother's family was from the border areas in the Civil War (in Tennessee), and some of her description of the attitudes she had seen over the years on her trips back there may we find too plausible that our country's future may be negative again.
