TERRAINDI. A FANCIFUL FABLE OF VINDICATION
By Per Leonardo Janssen. Director of Historical Archives, Dakota Territories Peoples’ Liberation Organization.
Prepared April 2021 in the Fargo Headquarters of the DTPLO on behest of the Terraindi Progress and Unity Party.
In the first years of the twenty-first century injustice and violence prevailed almost everywhere in the world. In particular, the policies of the Administration of USA President George Werner von Burning Weed had proliferated wars and brought the entire planet into economic and political chaos. From 2008 the American and European economies were plunged into crisis and stagnation by machinations of financiers, with severe consequences for the working population. The United States, under the political rule of a dominant class of financiers and corporate magnets, tried to counter the adversity of crisis by heightening the War on Terror abroad and increased austerity and repression at home. Under the Regime of Barack Obummer, 2008 to 2016, nothing effective was done to curtail terror, war, repression, or amelioration of the difficult economic and social conditions of ordinary people. On the contrary Obummer proved just another servant of money and empire. The same policies continued under the new administration, with Killary Clintlock as President, and a divided Congress elected in 2016. Clintlock´s foreign policies brought on full scale war throughout the Middle East. She continued shipping arms to the Saudis that ended up in the hands of ISIS which occupied all of Iraq, save the Kurdish areas and almost the entirety of Syria. She renounced the Iran agreement initiated by her predecessor and allowed Israel to violently demolish Palestinian resistance and threaten destruction of Iran with nuclear weapons. The U.S. embargo against Cuba was continued in spite of opening diplomatic relations, Guantanamo still housed many prisoners, and American support for overthrow of progressive governments in Latin America persisted and intensified. There was no meaningful reform of the U.S. criminal justice system, police killings continued unabated, and prisons remained overcrowded, now with protestors and dissidents being locked up in large numbers.
However, from 2017 peoples in America, Europe, and worldwide rose up in multiple protests against War and Terror, social injustice, and environmental destruction. There were massive anti-war movements against further interventions in the Middle East and South American socialism; continuing militant protests of police violence; blockades of artic oil drilling, construction of oil pipelines, and off-shore platforms; large protest demonstrations in Washington D.C. against government policies; greatly increased union organizing and militancy of workers; worker sit-ins and takeover of bankrupt businesses, a resurgence of militant feminism and black and brown power--frequent mobilizations on all fronts. In late 2017 three million people converged on Washington to protest the killings in the Middle East and the War on Terror. On Martin Luther King Day masses of people of all races and ethnicity listened to the eloquence of Jessie Johnson of the Rainbow Millenium in denouncing injustice and demanding total dismantling of the Criminal Justice System. Early in 2018 four million people converged to demand an end to environmental destruction. In each of these gatherings the National Guard was mobilized to arrest thousands of participants and lock them up in detention centers, as in the Anti-War demonstrations in 1971. In all cities there were constant demonstrations on all manner of issues. Police forces armed with crowd suppression weaponry supplied by the Department of War, and coordinated by the Federal Bureau of Conterinpol, fired tear gas, rubber bullets, and employed the latest in technology to break up demonstrations. Thousands of arrests and jailings were common. However, the repression only fueled the fire of protestors. Many cities elected mayors and Councils sympathetic to Movement demands. Events took a dramatic turn in 2018 when New Jersey Governor Christie Crook ordered the National Guard to break up a student strike at Rutgers-The State University. The Guard opened fire and four students were killed. This precipitated a nation-wide student strike that shut down over 1000 colleges and universities in the United States, energizing the growing youth movement.
From 2018 the government of the United States faltered in the face of uncontrollable mass uprisings clamoring for peace and justice. The country began to look politically like the former Soviet Union prior to its break-up.
Today justice and peace are more secure and the outlook for social and economic progress appears much improved. Progress came about by waging peace against the forces of war, by transforming conditions of injustice with measures of justice, by people seeing through the bold lies and slick propaganda of the financial and transnational corporate elite and their political servants and acting on things as they really are, by overcoming the rich and powerful with dignifying struggles for justice, equality and peoples´ democracy.
The decline of United States hegemony abroad and growing disorder at home had great international repercussions. Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Ireland were in turmoil. In Latin America Socialism for the 21st century became consolidated in several colonies. Events in Terraindi were at the center of these welcome changes. I begin this chronicle as the Middle East wars were winding down in 2018-2019 and previous constellations of international imperial alliances fell apart. Great Britain, seeing the demise of American hegemony and opportunity to resurrect the epoch of its imperial glory, took the lead.
On April 20, 2017, Winsom Churchill III, Chancellor of the newly reconstituted Colonial Office of Her Majesty’s Government of the United Kingdom issued the following Declaration:
“WHEREAS our former colony the United States of America has, since the year 1779, and even before that against British colonial policy, will, and intention, engaged in a policy of confiscation of frontier lands rightfully belonging to various American Indian tribes, and having extended ownership to White settlers of territories not rightfully theirs, and having exterminated by military force whole Native American communities, including the wanton slaughter of women and children, and having deprived indigenous peoples of their source of sustenance, most notably by the extermination of the buffalo of the Great Plains, and generally engaged in policies and practices that amount to genocide, and, having forced surviving native peoples into Reservations on the poorest lands, which Reservations have been managed in the worst possible colonial fashion, amounting to cultural genocide, THEREFORE, be it proclaimed that the policy of Great Britain shall be to support the establishment of an independent Indian nation, encompassing the Great Plains area West of the Mississippi River, but excluding Texas, the Southwestern States, and California which are the rightful property of Mexico, to which all surviving indigenous peoples of North, Central, and South America shall be entitled to full citizenship.”
The Declaration shook an astounded world. At first there was puzzled consternation, but as the implications set in massive numbers of people throughout all the continents took to the streets to celebrate a major event in world history. The President of the United States, Killary Clintlock, immediately denounced the Declaration as typical British “bull” and declared that the United States would never yield any of its lands to foreign occupation. The American Secretary of State, Al Bore, proclaimed that the United States would, if the resolution were acted upon, withdraw from the United Nations and all its agencies and end financial support. The only opposition in Great Britain was from a faction of the Labor Party surrounding former Prime Minister Toni Lacky Blast, removed from office in 2005 as a result of a parliamentary investigation concluding that Blast had resorted to “lies and provocations” in sending military forces to Afghanistan and to Iraq in 2003. Blast and aging former U.S. President George Werner von Burning Weed appeared on both CNN and BBC World to jointly announce their strong opposition to the Churchill Declaration. A few viewers were emotionally moved when a tearful Blast kissed the lips and held the hand of the former President who had suffered such humiliating setbacks in his military adventures in the Middle East and in the worldwide War Against Terror. Shortly after the TV airing, the Labor Party met and expelled Mr. Blast for “demeaning conduct unbecoming an Englishman.” Conservative Winsom Churchill III was promoted from the Colonial Office for his daring diplomacy to Prime Minister. His first act was to proclaim “A New Era of Glory for Greater Great Britain and the Imperial Commonwealth of British Dominians.” This achieved high ratings in voter satisfaction polls and little opposition from the Labor Party that had long been party to imperial design, but had always played second fiddle to the United States.
On May 7, 2018 the British Foreign Ministry submitted the Declaration to the United Nations General Assembly and Security Council for consideration. The United States reminded the UN that the U.S. had alerted of a possible resignation from the Security Council in early 2018 when it got no support from any member for endorsement of Israel´s war against Palestinians and nuclear threats against Iran. After much debate the General Assembly approved, by an overwhelming majority, and the Security Council agreed to consider, the establishment of the Nation of Terraindi, with provisions that the rights of White settlers were to be duly protected. (Significantly for future events, these rights remained largely undefined). The UN appointed a Commission to determine the boundaries of the new nation and established a Peace Keeping Force, to which 47 nations agreed to contribute military forces. Great Britain volunteered to take over missile, nuclear, and biological weapons sites located on the Great Plains and to manage them as a deterrent to probable United States aggression. However, the UN rejected this and decided that the Peace Keeping Force should identify and decommission all weapons of mass destruction located in the territorial limits of Terraindi, as well as establish a defensive perimeter to deter United States attack.
In the General Assembly debate, Israeli delegates, ignoring the historical parallels with the founding of Israel, denounced the entire proceedings and stormed out of the Assembly, to the resounding applause of PLO Observers and Arab Delegates. Among the dissenting votes was Costa Rica. Oscar Arias, former President and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, now the country´s Peace Ambassador to the United Nations, strongly argued that the mistakes of history should not be repeated, citing the British Balfour Declaration of 1917 and the UN establishment of the Israel in 1948. This action, he stated, will lead to unending violence. Spain, embarrassed by its colonial history in Latin America, also quietly voted against the Resolution, although the Spanish left opposition cheered the development. The Assembly hushed as the President of Cuba, an aging but still vibrant Raul Castroso, rose to speak. To the surprise of most delegates Raul announced that Cuba would vote against the Resolution. The delegates listened intensely to an impassioned, learned, and extremely lengthy discourse, inspired by his big brother Fidel Castroso, that ranged over centuries of history of imperial injustice and peoples´ struggle for justice. Raul noted his agreement with Oscar Arias comments and concluded with a passionate defense of the ethical position that two wrongs do not make a right. He asked only that the United States recognize its historical responsibility to right the wrongs committed in North, Central, and South America, Iraq, the Middle East, and North Korea and to end the 58 year still in effect embargo against his country, cease continuing efforts to destroy the Cuban Revolution by new styles of interventionism, to make appropriate amends for wrongs committed, and return sovereignty over Guantanamo to Cuba.
Guatemala, Peru, and Ecuador were main vocal supporters in the General Assembly, possibly because they viewed the Resolution as a solution to their indigenous rebellions, as did Mexico. The Mexican Ambassador vigorously supported the Resolution and called for a UN Study Commission on Mexican Territory Seized by the United States. Nations with large Muslim populations, except Saudi Arabia and Kuwait who abstained, were enthusiastic in support. One Arab Delegate went so far as to state into the record that “The Divine Will of Allah shall at last be served.”
After the debate an indignant U.S. Delegation walked out of the UN and the President Killary Clintlock, carrying out a Resolution of the Congress passed with few dissenting votes, resigned from the UN. This resignation opened the way for the Security Council to adopt the General Assembly Resolution with minor changes. Only France abstained, stating in obvious reference to alleged British designs, that the Age of Imperialism was over when France ceded Algeria, that the Age of Globalization ended with U.S. isolation in the world community, and that there was no need to change one Superpower for another. The Russian Ambassador demurred, stating that the area in question was first explored by Russians and that Alaska was really Russian, having been in effect stolen from them in 1867 with the farce of a token payment. Nevertheless, the Russians voted favorably, possibly pleased to see their former Cold war rival being downgraded, like them, to minor power status.
As the United Nations concluded its vote, throughout the world cities were drowned with massive celebrative demonstrations. Over 500 million Muslims in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia remained prostrated in prayer for 24 hours. In Saudi Arabia the pro-American government declared a state of siege and unsuccessfully attempted to close all mosques. In Trinidad and Brazil, Carnival was extended for a full 10 days. The governments of Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, as well as North Korea and most Latin American countries, declared National Holidays. The American imposed client government of Iraq was brought down as ISIS took over most of the country. In Santiago, Chile a massive demonstration demanded the immediate trail and imprisonment of all collaborators of the Pinochet dictatorship for crimes against the people when the General was the U.S. puppet dictator. In Buenos Aires the Mothers of the Disappeared mobilized more than one million people in the Plaza de Mayo to proclaim the universal principles of historic justice for the 300,000 tortured, murdered, and disappeared under military rule backed by the United States. The highland villages of Guatemala were practically emptied as at least two million indigenous people marched to the capital with banners reminding TV viewers throughout the world of the United States instigated massacres of villagers and the North American support for the Guatemalan oligarchy and its military servants and Death Squads. The newly elected Sandinista government in Nicaragua sought reversion to its revolutionary policies set back by the U.S. sponsored Contra War. The FMLN in El Salvador petitioned the International Criminal Court to change its procedures so that charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity could be brought against former U.S. officials of the 1980s Ronnie Raygun Regime.
The Killary Clintlock Administration threatened action and began a forceful build-up to militarily prevent any change in status of the American West. However, the specter of yet another war was galling to large sections of the United States citizenry, who took to the streets in protest. Police and National Guard violence against demonstrators incited even more protest. American and world intellectuals, pleased at the curtailment of U.S. imperial ambitions, published Manifestos of Conscience lauding the event. City Councils, elected by grass roots organizing by progressives in 2016 and 2017, issued proclamations citing the principle of historic justice. The National Organization of Young Women mobilized large numbers at all American military installations to urge soldiers not to fight any more wars and to stay out of Terraindi. Near the Army School of the Americas in Georgia, four nuns demonstrating against torture were kidnapped, raped and murdered, allegedly by right-wing para-military forces. There was a great public outcry against the emergence of Death Squads, believed to be organized and armed by the CIA. National Guard units in several states organized extra-official auxiliaries that issued death threats against “Injun Lovers.” There was large-scale resistance to the newly imposed military draft. Militant Black, Latino, and Puerto Rican groups demonstrated for universal self-determination. Moreover, the British stated that their military would back the UN Peacekeeping force in any armed conflict and the Canadian government declared a No Fly Zone for U.S. aircraft within 100 miles of the Canadian border. The United States government, constrained by world opinion, domestic opposition, and foreign military threats, adopted a wait and see outlook.
The UN Terraindi Boundary Commission scaled back the territorial scope of the new nation to encompass only the states of South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana. The Commission stated that this area, by being sparsely settled, would be the least disruptive to the economy and territorial integrity of the USA, while giving sufficient scope to accommodate an expected immigration of several million Indians.
Within months Native Americans from all over North America had entered Terraindi, at first occupying lands that had been public domain or national parks of the United States. Soon however there was a fearful, but voluntary, exodus of a large number of White farmers and ranchers, followed by small businessmen of the many small towns. These farms and businesses were quickly taken over by Native Americans and formed into cooperatives. Native Americans were pleased to claim property that they said was rightfully theirs.
Quick and forceful United States action practically closed the frontier with Mexico and only a trickle of indigenous peoples from the South could get through to the Promised Land. The UN considered establishing a protected Free Passage Corridor extending from the Texas border to Rapid City, South Dakota. However, a UN confrontation with the United States was averted when Canada opened a route from Halifax to the (former) North Dakota frontier giving free train passage to all immigrants arriving in large numbers by Canadian ships from Gulf of Mexico ports. A similar route was soon established from Lima and Guayaquil to Vancouver in order to better accommodate South American Indian immigrants.
These routes opened in 2018 after a coalition of French separatists and Canadian businessmen had elected a new government that abrogated NAFTA and all commercial treaties with the United States, claiming that the Americans had always taken unfair advantage of Canadian business. There were several major mergers of Canadian and British industrial and banking corporations and Great Britain nominated Canada for membership in the European Union. After the bankruptcy of Boeing Corporation, brought about by people´s fear of travel, the cutbacks in U.S. Defense Contracts, and the worldwide boycott of U.S. manufactures, France constructed the largest aircraft assembly plant in the world near Montreal. Even though the French were highly skeptical of British imperial ambitions, a joint French-British Fund for the Development of Quebec was established with an initial capital of 100 billion Euros.
As early as March 2018 an indignant United States complained in all international forums about the repeated violations of American airspace by aircraft dropping weapons in Terraindi. The CIA charged that these were Iranian aircraft flying out of airfields in Nicaragua. While both the Iranians and Nicaraguans had long standing grievances against the United States, the CIA was able to determine that these two countries were being established as client states by Great Britain and that the arms were British in origin. Airdrops were suspended however when the Canadians indicated that they had no objections to the transport of sophisticated British weaponry across Canada to provision the newly formed Terraindi Defense Forces (TDF). The TDF later became known informally within Terraindi as The Army de Venganza (Spanglish for The Army of Revenge).
In December 2018 the first armed evictions of White settlers took place. Some Whites fought back but their shotguns and rifles were ineffective against the superior numbers and weaponry of the TDF, who justified their actions on the basis that settlers were arming for terrorist attacks on Terraindi citizens.
These developments were extremely disturbing to the United States government and large numbers of troops were deployed in states surrounding Terraindi. Meanwhile, a growing Black Separatist Movement had developed demanding that the United States cede the states of Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and Georgia to finally give freedom to the still oppressed former slaves of Plantation America. A newly elected Mexican-American mayor of Los Angeles proposed a referendum on secession from the United States. A coalition of Puerto Rican, Dominican, and Jamaican organizations began agitating that Brooklyn and the Bronx affiliate with the New West Indian Federation. The Clintlock Administration declared that the United States would never accede to the Balkanization of its territory and declared the Black Separatist Movement, LA Brown Power, and the New West Indian Coalition illegal organizations. However, Arizona was allowed to hold a vote to secede from the United States and establish a (racist, neo-fascist) government. The Justice Department brought criminal action for sedition in Federal Court against the mayor of Los Angeles. Leaders of separatist groups were arrested and where resistance took place SWAT teams eliminated the resisters. In response, the International Committee for Human Rights condemned the United Sates for gross violations of the rights of national minorities. This Report also included 3,700 pages of documentation about previous American war crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria. Extreme concern was expressed about the rapid growth of right-wing extremist groups and Death Squads. The Committee recommended to the International Criminal Court that former President George Werner von Burning Weed, Vice-President Prick Chain, Secretary of Defense Doña Rumplestilskin, and former Secretary of State Colon Hyperbole Poder be indicted for War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. (These fallen U.S. officials had become popularly known as “The Gang of Four”). In response to petitions by El Salvador and Nicaragua, the Committee lamented that charges could not be brought against persons in United States administrations previous to Burning Weed, especially against former President Ronnie Raygun and Secretary of State Heinrich Kissergun for crimes in Central America during the 1980s, and former President Big Bill Clintlock for establishing the prelude to the Iraq War, stating that the ICC could not act retroactively for crimes committed before 2002. However, Kissergun was on Interpol¨s most wanted list on petition of a Spanish court for crimes committed against Spanish nationals in the Central American wars. When the indictments were issued by the ICC, the United States Congress refused to authorize extradition. The UN then imposed economic sanctions as tough as those applied to Iraq after the 1991 Gulf War. (The Security Council had earlier issued a formal apology to the Iraqi people for the economic sanctions, saying the Council had been lied to by Secretary Colon Hyperbole Poder and erroneously succumbed to United States coercion). These sanctions further weakened the already shaky American economy that had been drained by astronomical military spending in its Middle East Wars, interventions in Latin America, the “Star Wars” anti-missile system, and the build-up of very expensive security agencies, such as the NSA and Homeland Security.
The brutal unilateralism and blind arrogance of the United States government had alienated governments and peoples everywhere. President Weed had become identified as the world´s leading terrorist, much more dangerous than Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. The United States was widely referred to as The Super Rogue State. By 2018 a boycott of American products by tens of millions of consumers world wide had severely effected the U.S. economy. Exxon, GMC, Boeing, and Coca Cola were forced into Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Even in the United States the boycott had reduced McDonald´s sales by 30%. In other parts of the world, McDonalds that were not trashed had to close down. In the sphere of international political economy, U.S. controlled transnational corporations were losing out to the competition of British, German, and Japanese capital. Soon, however, all transnational corporations began to suffer under the constraints imposed by rising nationalisms, the general rejection of neo-liberal doctrines, anti-globalization sentiments and vast mobilizations, and protectionist policies in Latin America and the Middle East. There was growing consternation that Great Britain sought to re-establish its imperial domain.
A significant event took place in 2018 when the European Union, acting on a British request, ruled that the dissemination of “foreign propaganda” on the continent was prohibited. The French amended the rule to include prohibition of “foreign cultural perversity.” Fox News and CNN were the first American propaganda media affected, leaving the news field clear for BBC World, that most Europeans viewed as equally propagandistic, or even more so as BBC trumpeted the UK imperial line.
The loss of the European market placed CNN in a precarious financial position. In this situation, Jane Fondle and Ted Turnabout bought up a controlling bloc of CNN stock. As CEO, Fondle fired most of the staff, hired principled investigative journalists, completely redesigned programming so that the news was no longer “establishment propaganda,” and converted CNN into an Employee Owned Corporation. Events at CNN inspired a corporate coup led by the staff of CBS 60 Minutes that eventually greatly improved CBS programming. ABC came more or less the official agency for the Clintlock government and NBC the mouthpiece of the conservative Republicans and Fox News stepped up its advocacy of Death Squads.
On the international level in 2018 there was wide spread content with the decline of the U.S. as a Superpower and Global Policeman. The potential seen for the nation of Terraindi outweighed the concern for British imperial ambitions. In the era of new optimism there were some astounding international cultural developments. In Brazil, Ex-President Lula da Esperanza, whose populist policies unleashed a torrent of new social movements in this important country, had followed Fernando Olvido Pasado Cardoso, former centrist President, in office. Cardoso returned to his former role as a sociologist and published a book, translated into 57 languages, entitled Power Structure in Global Capitalism, with a highly polemical prolog by André Boomer Frank, the “international renegade” who had twice escaped CIA assassination attempts. This book stimulated critical reflection in international political economy that reached a climax when the University of Chicago Administration retired all the “Chicago Boys” in the famous neo-liberal Economics Department and replaced them with Indian and Pakistani intellectuals and British Marxists in exile. In the years following, neo-liberal economics and the ideology of the virtues of global capitalism became unfashionable and eventually discredited.
Sales of Cardoso´s book were only exceeded by Salomon Rushdy´s Greek and Indian Mythology in Christian Piety. For the blasphemy in this book Rushdy was placed on the hit list of the Christian Insurrection Force, a group with roots in the old Montana Militia, that, leaving its hatred of the United States government aside, pledged to redeem the lost territories of the United States “by any means necessary.” Thus Rushdy, already under a death sentence from Iranian mullahs, became a target of Christian fundamentalists as well. Rushdy´s troubles were compounded after he published an essay in the British left-wing journal New Left Review critical of the “resurgence of British Imperial Design.” For this the British Immigration Office ordered him deported to India and the journal was closed down by the Censorship Board authorized by the Sedition and Patriotic Act passed by the Conservative government of Winsom Churchill III.
At the press conference on arrival in Mumbai, India, Rushdy, surrounded by vigilant Sikh bodyguards, was asked if his next work would deal with Jewish Orthodoxy and Zionism. Rushdy wryly remarked, “No, because while Islamic terrorists only know how to kill innocents blowing themselves up and Christians zealots view suicide as a sin, Zionists are known for their Nazi-like ruthless efficiency.”
Sales of these books however were dwarfed by the latest release of the American musical group Rolling Rock, entitled Andean Rock. The rock beat with melody carried by flute and charango and rhythm by Sioux war drums was an instant smash. The pro-Indian, anti-establishment, and pro-Peace lyrics loudly resonated in the resurgent worldwide youth movement of the new millennium. Anarchist bands beating Andean drums with Sioux war chants invariably led large youth demonstrations for Justice and Peace and against Global Capitalism. Contingents of young Russians often showed up in these demonstrations, led by marching bands playing what sounded a lot like Tchaikovsky´s 1812 overture. There was a resurgence of Latin American Folk/Protest music featuring Mercedes Sosa, Suni Paz, and Los Parra of Chile. Latin Salsa became politicized. Afro-Cuban groups brought their rhythms worldwide. New and modernized performances of the Ballet Folklórico de México performed worldwide to stand up audiences. Even Slavic dance and music was well received outside Russia and Serbia. Kurdish and Armenian theatre groups dramatizing the aspirations for independence of their unfortunate peoples were sympathetically but not enthusiastically received, nor did petitions to the UN to mandate similar new nations for the long suffering Kurds and Armenians get very far. However, the Kurds had achieved some autonomy with the breakup of Iraq.
Leaders in the United States were dismayed at these developments. Rolling Rock accepted an invitation to perform at the July 2018 Woodstock Festival and it was learned that more than 1,000,000 youth from all over the world, as well as almost all surviving Hippies and aged New Leftists of the 1960s generation, were expected to attend. The U.S. Attorney General and the Drug Czar jointly issued a ban on the gathering. At the same press conference the Attorney General announced that any young man or woman age 18 or older who had not registered for the military draft would be subject to imprisonment. Within months 400,000 young people had fled to Canada and 200,000 to Mexico. Terraindi authorities, while sympathetic to the plight of American youth, closed their borders to this immigration. However, Cuba offered refuge to “any and all young North American men and women who cherish freedom. ” All Florida yacht basins came under Coast Guard control after the arrival in the Cuban port of Mariel of a flotilla of 47 stolen vessels carrying more than 5,000 American refugees. Within a year Cuba had become a major refugee center for North American youth wishing to avoid conscription and to support Revolution.
In Great Britain, BBC prohibited the airing of Rolling Rock and what Prime Minister Churchill III described as “any similar garbage.” BBC no longer played the Beatles Oldies. President Raul Castroso broadened Cuba’s Acta de Solidaridad Revolucionaria to extend refugee status to any persons “subject to the will of the British Empire.” The Voluntary Work Brigades organized by American and British refugees helped considerably to rebuild the Cuban economy damaged by 50 odd years of U.S. sabotage and embargo.
From 2016 onward former President Bill Clintlock achieved a certain notoriety in the American Establishment. In 2017 Killary Clintlock had filed for divorce and in December 2017 Bill married Monica Lewdjenski, who made public their Pre-Nuptial Agreement specifying an “open marriage.” Freed from the constraints of convention and political position, Big Bill established a lower Manhattan publishing company staffed by 27 of the finest female editors available in New York. The first publication was Bill’s own work, an illustrated manual, The Joy of Oral Sex. In 2006 Bill (now popularly referred to as “Bigbill Erect Clintoris”) published a provocative work Open Marriage, Open World, in which he drew broad parallels between sexual freedom and political freedom. Ex-wife Killary won the 2016 Democratic nomination for President against populist Liz Warrant and socialist Bernie the Red Sanders, but the street talk was don´t vote because “all Democrats still think with their old friends Dick, Bush, and Colon—zipper ém up.” Yet it was Bill´s third work that really drew the ire of the Establishment and the fury of fellow Democrats. In July 2018 A Historyof Cold War Nonsense, co-authored with Naomi Chompski, appeared. The main thesis of this work was that the United States had entire responsibility for starting and carrying out the Cold War, in the course of which the United States committed numerous “crimes against humanity.” Democratic administrations were singled out for particularly harsh judgment. Harry Truman was castigated with direct responsibility for instigating confrontation with the Soviet Union when there was ample opportunity for accommodation and peaceful coexistence and for destroying the resistance forces in France, Italy, and Greece and installing “Puppet Regimes” of Nazi collaborators in those countries after World War II. The authors labeled Truman the “intellectual architect of McCarthyism” and responsible for the smashing of dissent and labor unions in the United States. Truman, they note, foresaw the establishment of Israel as a buffer against Arab nationalism and subsequent Democratic Administrations armed their client state to carry out U.S. destabilization and petroleum oriented policies in the region. President Johnny Fuckem Kennedict was characterized as the “greatest liar, hypocrite, and ruthless cold warrior of the twentieth century.” Kennedict´s Alliance for Progress was described as a “hypocritical rhetorical cover for the dirty deeds actually carried out in Latin America” starting in the 1960s and resulting in 30 years of military dictatorship and bloody counterinsurgency war and death squads continuing into the new century. Kennedy was blamed for bringing the entire world to the brink of nuclear destruction through his policies to destroy the Cuban Revolution by military invasion if necessary and for initiating the War in Vietnam then carried to its genocidal conclusion by “Cowboy Johnson.” President Cartel was viewed as “perhaps well-intentioned but naïve,” “a prisoner of big business interests,” who allowed the CIA and Pentagon to build up the Central American Death Squads and the State Department to undermine any real possibility of meaningful democracy in the region. The Cartel policy of continuing previous Administrations´ building up of the repressive regime of the Shah of Iran as another Mid-East client state led directly to the clerical dictatorship and later to the growth of Islamic fundamentalism, terrorist strikes on the United States, and interminable wars against nationalism and terrorism of the Weed Administration that resulted in such humiliating failures and America’s isolation and decline as a world power. The wholehearted support of Democrats for Weed´s War came in for pointed criticism and he criticized his former wife Killary for supporting the Iraq War. Not surprisingly, in the Chapter on the Clintoris era only rather superficial self-criticisms were expressed. Clintoris saw himself hemmed in by the Jewish Lobby, the Oil Lobby, and the hopelessly pro Big Business Democratic Party. His sharpest words were reserved for the Israelis: “I should have grabbed the Prime Minister by the balls and squeezed hard when I had the chance.” Clintoris characterized the current Administration of Killary and Secretary Al Bore as “more of the same old shit,” but with the difference that the new international situation of isolation and the strength of the U.S. peace movement had placed constraints on the dirty deeds that the United States could get away with.
In Terraindi, the rapidly growing number of immigrants from all over the Americas had created a serious communication problem. Most inhabitants picked up at least a rudimentary use of Spanglish. However, this combination of Spanish and English was officially frowned upon by hardliners in the government as the language of colonizers and oppressors. Among the first acts of the Terraindi Parliament was the appointment of a panel of linguists to create a new language that would seek commonalities among the many Indian languages and where they did not exist create a new syntax and vocabulary. Within a year the panel released a preliminary version of Azinca, proclaimed the official language of Terraindi, and new texts became compulsory study material in Terrindi schools at all levels and in the Adult Literacy Program carried out by the militias.
The new language seemed to most observers to be an appropriate expression of the need for cultural identity. However, some felt that the resculpturing of American presidents on Mount Rushmore, renamed Montaña Tomahawk, to feature the great American Indian warrior Geronimo and one each Aztec, Inca, and Mapuche resistance folk hero was an extreme expression of cultural nationalism.
In the first years, the initial expectations of Terraindi peace and progress were violated.
For Whites, events in Terraindi had taken a serious turn. With the influx of nearly one million Indians from the South over the course of 2018, the TDF was able to organize para-military militias, who were given more or less free reign to harass White settlements. A particularly violent incident occurred in July 2008 in Kadoka, South Dakota, a small town of largely second and third generations Scandinavian immigrants located on the edge of the former Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and very close to the historical memory of the Indian village of Wounded Knee. A militia unit entered Kadoka and ordered residents to surrender all arms. The inhabitants argued that they had always lived in peace with Indians and treated them well, given them jobs in construction, even got them liquor in the days when it was illegal to sell alcohol to Indians. Sioux militants responded by asking them, “Where were you when the U.S. Calvary committed the massacre at Wounded Knee.” “Still in Sweden and Norway,” the white folk responded. “We were here for centuries. You stole our lands,” retorted the Sioux. The Kadokans refused to surrender any arms and the militia reluctantly withdrew. Two days later tanks were seen approaching the town on what used to be Interstate 90, now known as Via Libertad. A few men gathered shotguns and rifles and took refuge in the Lutheran Church. The firefight at the Church was short lived and the resisters surrendered after several had been killed. TDF tanks then crushed the Church, neighboring homes, and the entire main street. Within a few hours much of the town was reduced to rubble and 27 people had died, either of gunshot wounds or from being crushed while hiding in their homes and businesses. All men under 40 were arrested and the rest of the population told to vacate the town and Terraindi. An elderly resident in a wheel chair, Ida Nolan, cried as she departed the demolished town, “This must look like the West Bank after an Israeli incursion.” A bystander commented, “Or like the Warsaw Ghetto after the Nazi’s finished with the Jewish Resistance.” The local leader of the recently formed Dakota Territories Peoples Liberation Organization, Merle Larson, escaped into the Badlands from where he was able to arrange secret meetings between DTPLO leaders and a dissident Sioux faction that sought peace, led by Delane Flaming Arrow, a 82 year old Sioux who as an orphan had been adopted by kindly White ranchers and had attended Kadoka School with Larson.
The International Committee on Human Rights established an investigative committee, while the militias began a campaign of harassment of all Whites in the Black Hills in an evident move to recapture the Sacred Homeland of the Sioux. Refugees swelled the population of Rapid City that became a White enclave. The Kadoka Atrocity as it became known to White settlers stimulated a rapid growth of the Dakota Territories People Liberation Organization. This organization, under the direction of Chairman Ara Fat Nilsen, vigorously sought the aid of the UN and the international community to stop the forced eviction of non-Indians and to urge the authorities of Terraindi to end their “state sponsored terrorism.” The DTPLO called for non-Indians to use non-violent means to resist aggression whenever possible, but also to take up arms to defend their towns if attacked. Offensive armed struggles against the TDF and militias or attacks on civilian populations of Terraindi were prohibited. This latter injunction caused a division in the DTPLO and a militant splinter group called the White Peoples Liberation Militia, WPLM, went underground and began a campaign of sabotage, sniper attacks, and bombings of civilian as well as military targets. The WPLM set up headquarters in Omaha, while the militant fundamentalist grouping the Christian Insurrection Force, CIF, apparently funded and armed by the U.S. CIA, began forays into Terraindi from its locations in Iowa, Utah, and Colorado. The CIF was generally considered a terrorist organization whose violent attacks on civilian targets were increasingly criticized. CIF and WPLM activities caused the TDF to invade border areas of the United States in the states of Iowa, Colorado, and Utah to set up buffer zones. These were heavily defended and the TDF, taking note of Israel´s successful colonization projects, invited in and protected an increasing number of Indian settlers in occupied territories. The TDF threatened to move their forces into Salt Lake City, Denver, and Sioux City if the United States did not put an end to CIF artillery fire into Terraindi, harassment of Indian settlers in the occupied territories, and terrorist attacks such as the bombing of the Pine Ridge Shopping Center, killing 382 civilians. The United States reinforced military installations in surrounding states and demanded the complete withdrawal of Terrindi forces and the dismantling of all Indian settlements in the occupied territories.
The concern of the United Nations grew when the Terraindi Parliament passed the Law of the Palefacestans. These were small cities peopled by Whites (Rapid City, Sioux Falls, Fargo, Billings, Cheyenne, and Casper), to which many non-Indians from rural areas were required to relocate. Water and electric supplies to the Palefacestans were controlled by Terraindi Utility Co. Passports with valid visas were required of all non-Indian travelers into or out of the Palefacestans. Pierre, formerly capital of South Dakota, was renamed Atzlan, the capital of Terraindi, and Whites were encouraged to vacate. The UN General Assembly issued a Resolution that UN Peacekeeping Forces should prevent any forceful relocation of Whites from their homes, but the measure was vetoed in the Security Council by Great Britain.
International concern was transformed into alarm when the TDF forced UN Peacekeepers guarding missile sites and nuclear facilities to turn them over. The United States charged that North Korean technicians were brought in to rearm these decommissioned weapons of mass destruction. The U.S. brought tactical nuclear weapons into positions directly threatening Terraindi targets.
Provocative Terraindi actions had, however, by 2019 caused a sharp political split between the hard line government and opposition forces, together with a considerable increase in the strength of the Indian Peace Movement. From the opening of the first Parliament the government had been under the control of hard line Prime Minister Tupac Amaru and his Shining Path party. His base of support was largely the 300,000 Peruvian Indians who had immigrated to Terraindi. Many of these descendents of the Incas had been involved in the violent and doctrinaire Maoist Sendero Luminoso that had been driven deep into the Andes by the Peruvian military in the 1990s. Tupac Amaru also found considerable support from younger Plains Indians who had formed the militant group Lakota Warriors. However, some Sioux formed Lakota Elders for Peace With Justice which harshly criticized government measures. The main opposition came from Guatemalan Indians. Spokesmen stated that they had learned the futility of perpetual war through their experience in the Guatemalan Civil War from the 1960s through the 1980s. They were eventually supported by Colombian Indians affiliated with the guerilla army FARC who had concluded that there were limits to the means adopted for liberation and that just wars could not always be won.
Political support for Tupac Amaru´s policies had only mixed backing within the officer corp of the TDF, although hardliner Comandante Cholo was Commander in Chief of the TDF. However, any rebellion within the armed forces was kept in check by the very substantial strength of the militias under the overall command of Potpol, a former regional chairman of the Peruvian Sendero Luminoso. Potpol became widely viewed, even among government supporters, as a highly sectarian and dangerous extremist. He had translated his Quotations from Chairman Potpol into Azinca, a pocket size red book with depiction of a human sacrifice emblazoned on the cover. The book was carried by every member of the militia and used as a text for learning Azinca and cadre training, as well as in the Adult Literacy Program. A Chinese historian, noted for his sympathy with the Chinese Cultural Revolution and his reasoned criticism of some of the excesses of the Red Guard, noted that Potpol was no Mao Tse Tung and that the Terraindi militias appeared to him to be more like the Cambodian Kymer Rouge rebels of the 1970s who murdered two million people. The assassination of several TDF officers believed to be out of step with the Shining Path party line and the disappearance of many civilian dissidents were attributed to the Potpol para-military forces. Attempts by opposition forces to mount protest demonstrations were put down by displays of force by TDF troops.
Meanwhile, United Nations efforts to mediate the situation met with frustration. In July 2019 the General Assembly passed a Resolution calling for a peace conference, presided over by Oscar Arias and Bill Clintoris, in which representatives of the government of Terraindi, the DTPLO, the United States, the Arab Union, the Organization of African Unity, and the European Union would discuss measures to reach a peaceful solution. Prime Minister Tupac Amaru agreed to a peace conference, but rejected the participation of the “terrorist organization, the DTPLO.” In the Security Council Great Britain rejected arguments that the DTPLO was not a terrorist organization but the legitimate representative of the interests of displaced non-Indians, supported DTPLO exclusion, and demanded a British representative to the peace conference. In the end Great Britain exercised its veto and there was no conference.
Like the United States in the early years of the millennium, Great Britain became increasingly isolated in world opinion. Toward the end of 2019 Britain’s petition to admit Canada as a partner in the European Union was indefinitely tabled. In July 2019 the British motion to change the currency of the EU from Euros to Pounds Sterling was rejected. In response to Britain’s angry recriminations over this issue, the EU suspended Great Britain from any affiliation with the European Union. The London Stock Market crashed and it became evident that the Once Mighty Empire had lost the game of Achieving Superpower.
Decency and justice cannot permanently be suppressed. Terraindi had been taken over by extremist elements. Like extremist Islamic forces in the Middle East, some Indian militants expressed their justified resistance to oppressive conditions and violence perpetrated upon their peoples by means that were violent and counter-productive for forward progress. Arbitrary acts, violations of human rights¸ and violence eventually create opposing forces. Just results did come about in Terraindi.
Events within Terraindi took a dramatic turn in 2019 when over 1,000 young recruits to the TDF were jailed for refusing to participate in the forceful eviction of Whites from their homes. When rumors spread that these resistors were being tortured, tens of thousands of peace and freedom demonstrators descended on the capital Atzlan, demanding the resignation of Comandante Cholo, the arrest and trail for murder of Potpol, and the disbanding of the militias. Although Cholo ordered the TDF to repress the demonstration, several units actually joined the marches while others remained on the sidelines. The government of Tupac Amaru was constrained to resign. New elections were called and the Terraindi militarists in power were displaced by moderate elements whose declared aim was to achieve peace with white settlers. Cholo was exiled to Peru and Potpol was brought to trail. By late 2019 the Parliament had demobilized the militia, transformed the TDF into a greatly reduced civilian police force, and unilaterally declared that all weapons of mass destruction were to be destroyed. (A call for the United States to decommission all its weapons was ignored). The Law of the Palefacestans was abrogated. Most significantly, in early 2020, the Parliament passed the Law of Reconciliation. In the coming years this program was to completely transform Terraindi into a model developing nation. Once again Terraindi became an object of admiration and emulation.
This was a sorely needed development because the Middle East was still a major source of instability in the world. From 2001 to 2008 the Weed Administration wars and pro-Israeli policies and the 2008-2016 government of Obummer with its Official Terrorism, had caused an ascendance of Islamic fundamentalists forces in the region and in Africa. Large areas of Iraq and Syria came under the control of retrograde Islamic militants. The conservative mullahs, subordinated by an increasing secular ambient in Iran managed to maintain some power due to the Great Satan´s attacks on Islam and continuing threats against Iran. In Afghanistan it turned out that the power behind the throne was really the ousted Taliban and Al-Queda forces. The incidence of bombings and other violent acts in United States were not frequent, but by 2018 these attacks were increasingly turned on London, seat of the New Imperial Power. The Israeli/Palestinian conflict proved totally intractable, largely due to continuing United States military, economic, and political support for the unequivocally state terrorist regime of Prime Minister Crushem Shalom, ultra-zionist successor to Bibi Yahu. In 2019, facing defeat in the coming election from a peace candidate, the Israeli Defense Force and Mossad Israeli Intelligence had staged a coup and maintained Crushem Shalom in power, with the consequence of accelerated war against the Palestinians that endured until the regime was brought down by the Israeli peace movement in 2020. However, some Arab governments in the region began to move in a more secular and nationalist direction by 2019. This was usually attributed to the secularization of culture and modernization of consciousness that came with the decline of terrorist attacks on Muslim populations and the increased oil revenues allowing higher standards of living. A similar secularization occurred among most Muslims in Pakistan and Indonesia even without vast oil income and regimes adhering to Islamic Law began to disintegrate. Islamic fundamentalist terrorism largely disappeared from the world scene by 2020. Sadly, Afghanistan remained a devastated nation for many years to come, unable to recover from decades of foreign intervention and the civil wars wrought by those interventions. In Iraq, Sadman II, in hiding from the Americans for more than two decades, triumphantly reappeared in Bagdad when the New Baath National Party achieved some prominence. He was hanged by an angry mob of militant Shiites alongside an effigy of George Weed hanged by the Sunnis.
In Latin America, United States efforts to create the conditions for regime change in Venezuela, Ecuador, and Bolivia by funding and promoting golpista right wing thugs failed and the U.S. was expelled from the Organization of American States. Subversive activity against progressive governments and the economic pressures against the reformist governments in Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay had been major factors in the isolation of the United States, together with severe unilateralist measures against Syria, Iran, and Libya, and the threat to use tactical nuclear weapons against North Korea. In the absence of North American intervention and military support, peace accords between warring parties in Colombia were quickly established and on terms more or less favorable to the insurgents.
The years from 2020 were replete with positive developments and happy non-events. Among the non-events was the cessation of war of any kind, including in Palestine. Not a single act of terrorism was recorded in 2020, nor was there the slightest hint of ethnic cleansing anywhere. In 2020 the World Bank and International Monetary Fund merged and became reconstituted as the Fund for Human Development and Environmental Enhancement, while the World Trade Organization was dismantled and a new organization, Equity in International Commerce, was established.
This is not to say that conflict had subsided, on the contrary. The news was full of demonstrations here, strikes there, occupations of government ministries, strident calls for justice, demands for equality…. In the industrial countries, the forces demanding changes emanated from immigrant and racial minorities, youth movements and a resurgent women’s movement, and, most importantly, trade unions demanding employee control of corporations. In France, the 1968 uprising was relived in 2019, this time spearheaded by the trade unions with students adding ideas and militance. In France and Spain traditional Socialist parties that had administered austerity and neo-liberalism disintegrated and were superseded by a militant New Socialism. In the countries of the South poor peoples´ movements and a more organized civil society exercised enormous pressures on established governments. In general, the organization of more vibrant civil societies in many countries undermined the market as the basis of social organization. Since police and military forces were under more restraint than they had been in the past, these events, while often rowdy, were mainly non-violent. In many countries, the formal democracies that had masked control by the big moneyed interests closely allied with foreign powers opened to a more participatory and substantive democracy.
By the third decade of the twenty first century there was no world Superpower and neo-liberal economic policy had been replaced nearly everywhere by sustainable development policy. The system of global capitalism that had developed in the latter half of the twentieth century did survive, although in a considerably hemmed in fashion. Events in Terraindi over the course of the decade were instrumental in bringing about the foundations for a qualitatively new, and better, world system.
The Law of Social and Economic Development specified the Terraindi goal as a society of justice, equality, and prosperity. In building an economy the Law specified an area of private property and free enterprise (generally small scale commerce and industry), an area of employee owned enterprise (larger businesses), an area of cooperatives (mainly but not exclusively in agriculture), and a state enterprise sector (utilities, transportation, and high tech sectors). Large-scale private capital investment, foreign or local, were proscribed.
Under the Law of Reconciliation all property seized by the Terraindi TDF or militias was fairly compensated or, if guidelines were followed protecting the interests of Terraindis who had taken over lands, stores, shops, and factories, ownership claims by Whites would be recognized in one of the defined areas of social property. These guidelines were mainly a set of incentives and a development fund that encouraged the establishment of farms, ranches, and businesses open to returning Whites and Terraindis on a cooperative or employee owned basis, rather than individual proprietary basis. Whites (although the farmers among them had had successful experiences with cooperatives in the past) were in the main rugged individualists and believers in private property and private enterprise. Over time this changed, especially with the advent of the New Kibbutz and Commune movements.
The New Kibbutz movement had a profound, dual impact. In 2018 large numbers of anti-war Israeli youth left their fascistic homeland to immigrate to Terraindi to establish collective farms and enterprises. The movement was generously financed by liberal Jewish-American capital. This gave a considerable impetus to the democratic socialist and communitarian vision and, eventually, to the economic development of Terraindi. The impact in Israel was very great and the Crushem Shalom government collapsed in 2020. The succeeding Government of Peace was able to negotiate a settlement of the 70-year conflict in a matter of months. All occupied land was returned to the Palestinians and just compensation for the damages caused by the Israeli Defense Forces was awarded. In late 2020 the state of Palestine achieved independence and lived in peace beside the state of Israel, now reduced to its 1948 geographical boundaries. In the same year in both Palestine and Israel the principle of one-person, one-vote was established leading to equitable representation of Jewish interests in Palestine and Arab interests in Israel. The same principle was enacted in Terraindi, although it was recognized that Indians would soon be a minority as White settlers returned and immigrants flooded the country. Also patterned on the South African experience were Tribunals of Reconciliation established in Israel, Palestine, and Terraindi.
Beginning in 2019 many thousands of young North Americans (as well as quite a few Scandinavian immigrants), some rejecting the “Establishment,” others “the racist society,” and others, led by the young anarchists, the “fascist state,” opted to return to the simple and peaceful life of rural communes. The immigrants soon found that the romantic notion of making a living from the land in the rigorous climate of Terraindi was not viable and most moved to towns and cities. The more entrepreneurial among them organized employee-owned business that, with the help of Terraindi and international development funds, became quite successful.
In 2020 the long reign of Democrats and Republicans in the United States came, more or less, to an end. The growing number of disaffected American citizens realized that the Democratic Party was hopeless and joined the electoral campaign of Reverend Jessie Johnson of the Rainbow Millennium, who won the election by a narrow margin. However, the Supreme Court annulled the election results in the State of Florida and declared the runner up Democrat Al Bore Jr. as the winner. The Rainbow forces took to the streets in great numbers, prompting the Joint Chiefs of War Staff to declare a State of Emergency, mobilizing Army as well as National Guard forces. Violence and even a military take-over was averted only when Johnson and Bore agreed to a pact whereby Bore would assume the Presidency and Johnson the Vice-Presidency, with Cabinet appointments equally divided. However, control of the Senate and House by a coalition of Democrats and Republicans prevented the Johnson forces from carrying out any significant reforms.
Presently, polls indicate that Johnson will win the coming election in November 2024 with an increase of Rainbow Millennium representatives in Congress. At the time of writing, the country is in economic chaos due, according to many observers, to the sabotage actions of large corporate interests to hoard and blackmarket essential supplies, from potatoes to toilet paper. A proto-fascist movement is gaining strength saying that when in power “we will take care of the Niggers, Injun Lovers, Queers, Commies, and feminist whores and nuke those so called Terraindis to oblivion.” American politics is highly polarized with a majority favoring changes advocated by the Rainbow Millennium, but the conservative and reactionary forces are numerous and well-organized with plenty of economic resources. Right-wing para military organizations and Death Squads are ascendant, as is a resurrected Weather Underground within the revolutionary Left. The most notable attack by the Weather Underground was a mortar launched from a boat in the Potomic River against the FBI´s Hoover Building. The FBI retaliated by assassinating numerous leaders of Movement organizations, labeling them as terrorists. The Underground attack was condemned by all but fringe groupings in the Movement as counterproductive to the cause. Non-violent protest limited to disruption and obstruction of normality was vigorously defended as the sure road to peace and justice.
Rumors of a military coup should Johnson win are widely credited. However, Rainbow agitators working near military bases report that recruits and draftees in the American Armed Forces are largely pro-Johnson, so the outcome of a military intervention is uncertain. In Terraindi and everywhere people truly hope that events in the United States will not, once again, plunge the world into violence and chaos.
In Terraindi as of 2021 the situation looks very good. While still a poor country relative to Western Europe, there is no poverty, good health care is universal and paid from general tax revenues, the educational system is excellent, adequate housing is available to everyone, the crime rate is among the lowest in the world, there is an equitable distribution of income, development projects are designed to protect and enhance the environment, and the economy is experiencing very rapid economic growth. The Progress and Unity Party recently won elections. This party is a coalition of moderate Indians, The Dakota Territories Peoples Liberation Organization and other progressive Whites, the Union of Employee Enterprise Workers, the Coalition of Cooperatives, and various smaller political groupings. The opposition, generally consisting of Indians associated with the old regime and the Christian Insurrection Force and other extremist White groups, is generally ineffective. The anarchists, who have a more revolutionary vision of the future for Terraindi, remain outside the electoral arena but are respectfully heard within the governing coalition.
