The poet William Butler Yeats wrote “Things fall apart; the center cannot hold.” America in the decades of the 21st century has become a living hell. There is massive unemployment, uncontrolled immigration, along with overseas war and occupation without end of any land with crude petroleum. Total corruption in a politically correct police state, the legalized murder of the elderly, and the loss of the social safety net have created intolerable desolation and made life for everyday people a nightmare.
Finally, Americans can take no more, and in the Pacific Northwest they revolt. Led by embittered Iraq veterans, ex-convicts, teenagers, and blue-collar family men and women driven to desperation, in Portland and along Oregon’s northern coast, they join The Brigade.
