Tom Greenlee, the CEO of Ameribank and the leader of a forty-member secret group called the National Association for Preserving White America, believes the country is self-destructing. He preaches that the white middle and upper classes of the country are finding their wealth stripped away, their beliefs trampled, their culture spat upon, and their lives threatened by people of color. He and his group of “protectors” desire to carve out an independent nation of their own.
As a fragmented and polarized society, Americans begin to feed on each other until they become a target for attacks by both internal and external enemies. A strike on Houston’s Reliant Stadium kills and maims thousands of citizens. It’s being touted as a scheme concocted by the CIA to keep the U.S. fighting in the Middle East. Minutemen vigilantes massacre a group of migrant workers and their families in order to intimidate others from entering the country. Dan Louder, New York City’s first black mayor, survives an assassination attempt. The New York Stock Exchange closes its doors.
While the country teeters on the edge of destruction, the citizens of the U.S. must prepare themselves to live a very different existence in the future.
