Somehow, despite desegregation and women's lib and gay marriage and so on, we've fallen under the sway of the Confederacy Risen, the Republican Party, the Southern Jim Crow culture writ large as "American Culture" and proving to be the doom of not just America, but the world.
What madness is this? And how can Earth escape?
But probably not. We're all awash in the doom we bring down upon everyone. Yay!
