The boys make a blood-bound pact to “clean up the neighborhood” at all costs. As time goes by, their once simple adventures lead to an escalation in what they deem as morally acceptable and ultimately necessary killings in order to keep the peace.As adults they find themselves at the forefront of the most significant political shift in United States history. By the ruling party’s executive order, “On this fine day,” the U.S. borders are immediately and indefinitely closed.Texas passes the controversial, Right to Kill Act. Anyone in the State of Texas can petition to have someone killed. The catch? The petitioner has to make the kill. This is followed by the Texas Prison and Rehabilitation System putting to death 28,000 prisoners it houses as it opts out of having a prison system all together. Before long the entire country is following the Lone Star State’s lead. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the country’s first Roman Catholic leader’s Dallas assassination is tied to South Vietnam’s assassination of their first and only Roman Catholic leader, Ngo Dinh Diem. While the world is caught up in an unprecedented warring spiral, our six north siders are implementing their own strategic maneuvers to dominate the world.
