Summary

This near-future political satire about the election of a new president argues that socialism and populism will eventually give rise to chaos and disaster.

Authored by Ingersoll Lockwood - around whom conspiracy theories concerning the sci-fi/fantasy character Baron Trump now abound - 1900, Or: The Last President is notable for both its clairvoyance and its reflection on the social movements and political climate of its time.

Worth a listen

Amazing prescience!

The events leading to the shutting down of a President by both Congress and Senate by disallowing a State of The Union address is the story which is arguably being mirrored in January 2019.

An interesting book.

Not as advertised

If your trying this book, because you’ve heard it had something to do with our President Trump. Don’t, as you will be disappointed. It does not have anything to do with President Trump, however it is a good listen. As long as you listen to with no expectations.
