Overview

Polarized by Ms Ann O. Symoun

The year is 2112. America is on the brink of war-with itself. Fifty years before, the rift between the left and the right, the liberals and the conservatives, peaked.
With its disciplinarian and authoritative stance, one no longer tolerated the loose values and permissiveness of the other. It reached a boiling point and led to the Great Race Riot never before seen in history.
Cities burned across the country. From the west coast to the east coast. Communities came under siege. People of different cultures, ethnicities, races feared for their lives and sought refuge with their own kind.
Decades after the turmoil, the United States-to those who still cared and knew-was no longer a whole nation. It had broken up into four ethno-racial regions: the Asian-Pacific Islanders in the Northwest, the Hispanic-Latinos in the Southwest, the African-Americans scattered in three separate parts of the mainland-the Midwest, the Northeast and parts of the South-and the Anglo-Americans (whites) in the rest of the land.
Through a succession of bad federal governments in Washington in the last quarter century, the country deteriorated further. Laws aimed for national security and the protection of citizens' rights especially the underclass, were seldom enforced: the Civil Rights Act, Immigration, the Freedom of Information Act and, most important of all, the First Amendment to the Constitution.
Offenders, no less than government officials themselves, consistently got away violating these laws with impunity. Control of the media for years now had been disguised by the puppet press in Washington. The result was a news blackout the country was made to believe did not exist.
But an Alliance of a few true Americans on the Capitol Hill knew better. This group, leaders representing their states, grew in number and eventually founded the Federation of American Independent Republics.
In a matter of weeks, sixteen states and the northwestern part of Texas seceded from the Union, declaring themselves independent Republics. In March of the year 2112, the Federation proclaimed itself a new sovereign country and declared its Independence from the United States of America. That same day, the newly organized Federation Defense Forces (FDF), mobilized weeks in advance, seized and took command of major U.S. bases in several Republics.
The second American Civil War, thus, had begun.

I couldn't have come across this terrific book at a more timely period in America than right now. Everything that's going on in the country daily: this unprecedented hatred between the left and the right, the absolute bias and partisanship of each side, the threat of violence because of the differences in their belief and perception, all these I found screaming at me in this book. Along with that, it goes into the perceivable near- future of the United States of America: the resulting ideological, racial and cultural fragmentation of the country and its devastation in the Second American Civil War. A must-read any day now, before it happens for real.

The Hispanics take over the Federal government: a Latino President, grandson of Mexican anchor babies, is in the White House. Both the House and the Senate are controlled by a Latino majority. The U.S. government open the southern border with the creation of the Coalition of North American Border States, virtually turning Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and South California to Mexico. Tens of millions more Latinos from Mexico and Central America inundated America. Out of desperation, sixteen remaining Anglo states seceded from the Union and formed the Federation of American Independent Republics, declaring it a separate sovereign country. Finally, the Second American Civil War broke out. This is one heck of a book to read in the time we now live in. I couldn't stop reading it once I got started.

This book took my breath away. Hispanics finally taking over control of the U.S. govt., after these inept Anglos in D.C. let them over run the country with the open border, illegal aliens rampaging all over, drug lords running the show. America breaking up into four ethno-racial regions, the second American Civil War finally erupting. Incredible. This is non-stop reading!!! But I hope it never happens.

This is an incredibly timely story of our time in America -  today. Immigration: Illegals inundating the country, human trafficking, drug war. partisan politics in Washington fragmenting the country, racial and ethnic unrest, Latinos taking over the Anglos running the country. America fallen behind the Asians and the rest of the world in global economy, technology and space exploration.  I can't stop turning the pages once I started reading this  novel.    - Robert Sutherland, Chicago, IL

Once I got started on this book, I wouldn't stop. I wanted so badly to know what happens to America with the Latinos running the federal government both in the White House and Congress.. The country broke into four ethnic regions, a Federation  of American Independent Republics formed and seceded from the Union, declaring itself a new sovereign country. The the Second American Civil War. then erupted. I hope to God we never come to that.
