Here is what happened!
I penned a summary and review of the book. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood Published by Houghton Mifflin, Boston, Mass., 1986
During the current time when the recession is in full swing. After 15 odd years of the shenanigans of the GOP while in office. While they wander around searching for the next Newt Gingrich to come along and lead them to the promised land. They will re-invent themselves and the right wing will rises again. I am sure. The next wave’s target may well be women. Just like in this book. Timeline the book at about 2012 or just after as the current lot of Democrats in power have run their course in office, whichever comes first. It may be a bit futuristic but it is good thought provoking read.
