Travis Augustus Brandt has spent 75 years fighting the good fight against the nefarious legion of malcontents, confederates, Christians, and quislings. From the dawn of the nuclear age to the despotism of Republicans and their belief in white supremacy, Brandt, the self-anointed Conscience of America, has taken on the responsibility of convincing Democrats, liberals, cynics, and academia to confront the wicked right-wing rabble. A Boatload of Godless Apples describes one's man's attempts to keep the nation from returning to when white men ruled, women remained silent, and minorities accepted the station and mission offered to them by a duplicitous, autocratic and anti-science breed. Brandt is a forceful and lionized leader of radical disciples who look to protect and preserve American Democracy. Discouragingly, Travis Brandt has failed at achieving equal justice and autonomy for all citizens. He wants to affirm the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. So far, however, Brandt and his outsized ego have, at best, seen fascism whittle away at the framework of the three linchpins of government – legislative, executive, and judicial. Why, despite Brandt's efforts, has his philosophy receded during the nation's most trying time? Could it be because of his difficult and wayward youth? Could it be because of Brandt's inherent self-indulgence or age? Or, is it because of his lack of respect for women? A Boatload of Godless Apples is a timeless story where good intentions are not enough when the USA possesses so much hate .
