Another view of the post-United States

Friend Mike pointed me at this article, which recounts Igor Panarin's work on the possible fracturing of the United States. And Panarin seems to agree with the timeline I set for it in Looking Glass plus or minus a few years. Interestingly, though, Panarin is said to put the Eastern Seaboard states, the ones I assigned to the UCSA, as part of 'liberal Europe'. I think that ignores the great wealth of those areas, and the fact that there is a great deal of American military power centered in and around Washington DC. All the major wealth centers of the NorthEast are within a few days' drive or a couple weeks' march, and no nation which wished to survive would let them get away.

Also, hope y'all had a happy midwinter holiday of your preference, and have a happy New Year.

As you might have guessed from my lengthy silence, things got a bit hairy with Nano. I was two days behind for most of the campaign, only catching up the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, then taking Thanksgiving off. I finally finished Saturday, November 29, in the middle of the afternoon at the write-in at the Tattered Cover, Highlands Ranch.

And now, of course, I have the inevitable post-nano cold. It's getting better, but this is why I've been silent so long.
