I imagine that J. Greer was bored of hi tech ciberpunk or/and intergalactic futures, and doom apocalyptic dystopias. His provocative reply is good written, although not perfect (sometimes he goes into too long descriptive mood). However, the way in which politics affaires are telled is epic. J. greer is a "paleoconservative", but he is smart enough to describe politicking in a realistic (no mystical) way...
I think Retrotopia means hope, rational hope for mankind future.
In an interesting story format, this is an excellent graphic look at the core problems in our current economy and possible ways it could be changed. I enjoyed the cynical viewpoint of the primary character... who thinks "low tech" is ridiculous. Loved the integration of a community that at it's basis focuses on supporting each other. Loved the "tiered" society...
A good way to introduce others to the concepts of practical sustainable society and the problems involved if we don't make some rethink how we approach problems. It introduces a different way to view our economic problems and how they might be solved.
This book is what has been missing in alternate futures.
I knocked off 1 star because there are a few slow parts and the bashing of progress got a bit obnoxious over time, but these were generally minor and mostly personal concerns and won't seriously detract from your enjoyment of the book or mare its message.
The breaking up of the US into regions is very pertinent, especially in the post-2016 degeneration from Red and Blue States into regions that are economically and ideologically diametrically opposed to each other. This is very believable.
This is a thought experiment in the loose form of a novel - similar to Thomas More's Utopia except written in the reverse: instead of a shipmen recounting how he has visited that far off land of Utopia this has the Ambassador in plastic clothes visiting Lakeland. Keep this format in mind - because it doesn't have much action or characterization. This may throw reader's off. It is not written in the fully de-industrial future world of Star's Reach, but maybe somewhere along the in-between timeline.

It is certainly nice to read a post apacalyptic fiction that ends on a high note.
