Through the Mill: A Time for Snow by James Scott


Throughout history authors have warned that Collectivism, if taken to its ultimate conclusion would be the end of the United States, and of personal freedom. What if their warnings were actually prophetic? What if government policies such as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and Common Core create such class warfare when fully implemented that the house of cards topples over?

In a not so distant future; the NSA and Homeland Security have merged into the Specialized Homeland and Overseas Protectorate, an entity known as, The Shop. The government of the United States has been removed in its place; a benevolent dictator has been seated as the head of The Shop, for life. From the continued restructuring of health care, and the creation of a Certified Press; to the ban; on nicotine-producing products, on non-prescription drugs, and on the consumption of meat products; to the support; of THC producing products, and of the freedom to choose sterility with an abortion. Are the progressive controls over individual lives, exerted via an authoritarian government, an effort to save us from ourselves?

When a Pre-college student hears his professor reading from a dissertation on, generational conflict; he is motivated to write a paper that speaks his mind. That would be fine, if he didn’t live under the watchful eye of The Shop. Pursued by the men in the dark glasses, and an artificial-intelligence-based entity, Ronald Snow and his girlfriend Jealousy Kincade are forced to speak out against The Shop, by a dissident faction.

Can these young lovers inspire a nation to throw off its shackles? What happens when a modern day Romeo and Juliet find themselves in the center of a potential coup? Follow the efforts of Snow and Jealousy, as they attempt to reinstate the freedoms of a once-great nation. Will they help give us back our lost freedoms? Can they find a way to be happy in a future they helped craft? Or will they simply be run Through the Mill?
