Summary

This little booklet was penned at the end of the 19th century, and ostensibly involves events mere years later. A work of political satire, it chastises the rise of socialism and populism, inferring their fictional rise here as disastrous and leading to chaos. 

It is of note here that this work, along with others by Lockwood, appear to prognosticate the current political climate of the United States and West at large - and for an apparent religious Catholic of his era, it is not altogether impossible that Lockwood - wittingly or unwittingly - tapped into some mystic forces. Regardless, it is an interesting little political story from its time and is reflective of some of the social ideologies and movements of the age.

Somewhat of a click-bait title.

This is an interesting short story but the reference to trump is somewhat click-bait which is disappointing as the audiobook is worth listening too on its own merits.

Genuine 19th century style

I should have known it would be written in this strange, very flowery style of writing which was so common during this era. It really just gets in the way of the story. It is what it is, an interesting and also possibly informative look at possible outcomes to events we are witnessing right now in the present. Someone could update this in a more modern style, in the hope of reaching a wider audience.
