Samuel Moore is living a dystopian lie…
After a civil war, the North American Commonwealth now dominates the eastern half of the former United States. Controlled by a totalitarian regime called the Directorate, the NAC demands compliance, awareness, and unity. A Directorate member and teacher, Sam enjoys the benefits while skirting the forbidden.
Then Sam encounters Katie Spencer. She sneaks him a short wave radio and he hears the Western Alliance broadcasts. Katie also reveals a video she captured of NAC death camps. Sam realizes he’s involved in a nightmare that could shake every foundation.
With the video broadcast date approaching and several students desperate to escape to the Western Alliance, Sam is forced to decide. Remain loyal to the Directorate? Or abandon all he’s ever known to fight for freedom?

The thought of another civil war sounds scary. 2050 isn't that far into the future. Sounds like an interesting read.
This sounds like an intense and interesting read. Wishing Jay the best of luck!
If there was another Civil War, I doubt it would be split East-West, but not exactly North-South either the way it was. I do think California would split over it, though. I'm interested to see why/how this author thinks lines would be drawn.
A second Civil War is not at all unimaginable. And in fact, if there IS one, I believe it will occur much sooner than 2050. More like 2020, right after the next Presidential Election. (It wouldn't last very long, though. As someone once said: "One side has most of the guns, and the other side doesn't even know which bathroom to use.")
