Charlotte Shawl, a totem to the people and representative of the newly founded ideals in a equally infantile United States, shares her surrealistic journey through captivity, and how the change in perspective made her question all that she once "knew". More
The Democracy that the United States was founded upon weathered in the changes of time. Social niches, sub-cultures, and sects varying in all opinions under the sun began to eat away at the security such a system supported for over a hundred years. Eventually the country buckled under the pressure, resulting in civil warfare, which later was responsible for the molding of a new society: a new collective of free, open-minded states. Now the United States is a seemingly endless land of discovery, housing separate cultures between every county line. Pubic figures are respected as Messiah's in a faceless world, and our story is told from the perspective of one of these "visionaries". Charlotte Shawl's private journal, which was written during her captivity, shares her surrealistic and constantly changing views on the country she thought she loved.
