This is a timely read for anyone who is starting to feel the anxiety of election season creeping up on them. Through animated allegory, Trumpery Resistance tackles the overwhelming feeling of helplessness that many have experienced after viewing the current administration's actions these past few years. Young offers particular insight into the LGBTQ community's world--MacKenzie is gay and must hide it out of fear of reprisal--but readers will also encounter injustices committed against women, the disabled, and ethnic minorities. While all of this might sound bleak, perhaps the most surprising thing about Trumpery Resistance is that its characters can find hope in even the darkest of circumstances. Young seems to be saying that, if they can do it, then, with luck, people who feel marginalized by modern politics will find the strength to fight another day.
From the Inside Flap
But MacKenzie is having flashbacks from his youth. The conditioning he has undergone is failing and with it comes a new realization that he is not what he thought he was. Confused by the change in circumstances, he takes on a role that allows him to infiltrate the resistance.
There he uncovers the real reasons behind America's decline and the formation of the New Republic. But there's yet more. A secret Caste called the Omega who really controls everything, the truth about the destruction of half the country and a deadly plot that has been set in motion against neighboring nations.
MacKenzie's quest for the truth and justice is just beginning. But is the way of the resistance any better than what the nation already has?

J. Steven Young’s politically charged sci-fi thriller, “Trumpery Resistance”, acts as a dire warning for all Americans to pay close attention to the direction in which the White House is steering the nation during the current administration. The author expresses great insight and intuition into the troubles plaguing the nation and how the rash and oftentimes irrational decisions made by POTUS and his administration will most certainly affect the future.
Author Stephens’ LGBT anti-hero, MacKenzie Dillon, works well within an action-packed plotline that is meant to elevate him from a robot-like Enforcer to a high-ranking First Protectorate in a dangerous position with essentially unbound authority. The opportunity of his promotion provides Dillon certain privileges that allow him to rub elbows with the political elite, work clandestinely within the rebel forces, and live a private life that he could only have dreamed of.
The author tells MacKenzie Dillon’s story from two separate angles; the first, as a high-ranking soldier serving rebel troops intent on exposing a corrupt political system; the second, as an active but cautious LGBT man living life in an extremely intolerant and repressive regime.
Many LGBT readers, as well as immigrants and people of color, will relate to the fight against the intolerant attitudes and discrimination suffered by Stephen’s future society in comparison to today’s political climate. Although I neither support nor condone the views expressed in this novel, I found this story to be a controversial yet intuitive LGBT Sci-fi thriller with a cautionary warning about our current political climate. Those who enjoy reading about world domination, political conspiracies and intrigue, government corruption, military takeovers, and civil resistance will find that this book delivers on all of these aspects.
“Trumpery Resistance” should be treated as an adult read-only. This novel contains graphic violence, as well as adult language and sexual situations. I recommend this read for adults only who enjoy edgy LGBT Sci-fi and dark political thrillers.
The communists always start by promising the world to common workers, but things quickly disintegrate into fascist authoritarianism. It's happened time and time again - Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot are good examples. The socialist's enemy is anyone who dares to think outside party doctrine, and the intellectuals are always the first to go when the genocide starts.
Donald Trump may be an abrasive New York City loudmouth, but he is as American as apple pie. His controversial policies are all about American freedom and deregulation. Free market capitalism is what made the U.S.A. great. If Mr. Young wants to level criticism, why not write a factual non-fiction book. Tell us in real terms why he feels so anti-American, and support his work with reference from the real world. His pandering to the pervasive "Trump Derangement Syndrome" is weak and uncalled for, and in my opinion, Trumpery Resistance is a poorly written waste of time.
