James Howard Kunstler still uses the outdated term “white supremacist,” but I email him now and then trying to update his vocabulary.
In Jim’s post-collapse world, the South does rise again! And it’s got a Dolly Parton like country singer as it’s neo-Hitler. She would be Hitler XI or XII by then, if I recall my Hitler successions correctly. Putin is Hitler IX, and I imagine there’s going to be at least 1 or 2 more Hitlers between now and the Kunstler-Zukunft.
Anyway, I haven’t read it yet, but I emailed Kunstler to ask if the new Dixie is still existing by the end of the novel, or if he gave it a Berlin 1945 fate. I was relieved to find out that it’s still going strong by the end of the novel. I’ll write another post about it after I actually read it.
