Ted Rall Wants You to Overthrow Your Government (in Cartoons)
Ted Rall has just announced that he's seeking support for his latest compilation of editorial cartoons and political spoofs called "Congratulations! You Have Overthrown the Government of the United States." The book will be a follow up on hos The Anti-American Manifesto. It's about a theoretical American revolution carried by people and about making sure the new government is better than the next.
Rall has not mentioned if he had difficulty finding a publisher to endorse his work, but he maintains a blog that is very active and critical of contemporary American politics. Perhaps through crowdfunding, Rall will finally be capable of publishing the books he wants, whether they grate Americans or not.
There have been many narratives about a post revolutionary America in comics and elsewhere, but only Rall can write it that it feels so real, that the current political class probably wants to pay attention and not dismiss his work as just fiction.
