So far, by all indications, there is a single villainous overlord running the chicago area. And how did he come to power when the same area would have plenty of national guard and local military units who you too think were likely to become active, benevolent forces in the local area? Did they within 15 years devolve into mindless psychopaths obeying a low-to-mid-level military dude who previously had abandoned his post? And did they also agree to formally abandon the united states and all it stood for and treat anyone who did not as enemies guilty of the highest order of treason? Perhaps monroe put something in the water to accomplish this?
