This is Philip Wyeth. There’s a story circulating around about some rah-rah Democrat group fantasizing about all the big wins they’re lining up over the next few elections. Leading off this hypothetical “progressive governance juggernaut” is Stacey Abrams, who will become the nation’s first black female governor if she wins in Georgia this November.
The Victory Party flyer where this news story came from also says, “It’s 2022 and we are celebrating policy victories across the nation: Medicare for All and Free College, and next on the agenda is Reparations.”
Oh, really?! I just so happen to have written two novels envisioning a similar future. The premise is that in 2024, Eileen Jeffries-Lao, the Chinese-American former governor of California, became the nation’s first female president. Her main campaign platform was to create the Historical Reparations Administration, where a supercomputer called MARVIN—short for Macro Aggregating Restitution Vector Input Navigator—scans antique documents to calculate each citizen’s Debit Score.
The first book in my series, Reparations USA, begins early in 2028. We follow Debtors secretly trying to burn old papers—dubbed “inconvenient archives”—but law enforcement is hot on their tails. A reality TV show brings Beneficiaries and Debtors together for healing Kumbaya moments, in instances when their ancestors have had too much negative contact over the generations. And there’s even a poor black teenager who writes a song about how the Reparations program isn’t working too well—and thanks to the power of the internet and social media, it becomes the hit of the summer!
The sequel, Reparations Mind, came out just a few weeks ago. Here we have high drama leading up to the election, after a hack into the MARVIN mainframe put the president’s surefire reelection in doubt. The whole cast of characters returns, plus there are outrageous new flavors, such as exploring the philosophies of a reactionary new religion called Modestianity, the grand opening of a Reparations-themed casino in Las Vegas—and even a restaurant on the Sunset Strip which was custom built from the ground up, with facilities to accommodate nearly forty different genders.
So, while today’s Democrats dream of a tiresome future defined by checkbox milestones—first female this, first minority that; basically like building your own omelet at a diner—the future world in my series is a zany dystopia that uses humor to filet progressive delusions. I’m sorry to say it, but the Victory Party is canceled!
So, why don’t you grab that free copy of Reparations USA, and visit that equitable future which the Leftist Big Brains have planned for us? Links are below.
