Philip Dru: Administrator  (1912) 
by Colonel House
Philip Dru: Administrator: a Story of Tomorrow, 1920-1935 is a futuristic political novel published anonymously in 1912 by Edward Mandell House, popularly known as Colonel House. His book's hero leads the democratic western United States in a civil war against the plutocratic East, and becomes the dictator of America. As dictator, Dru imposes a series of reforms that resemble the Bull Moose platform of 1912 and then vanishes.

A Story of Tomorrow


    “No war of classes, no hostility to existing wealth, no wanton or unjust
    violation of the rights of property, but a constant disposition to
    ameliorate the condition of the classes least favored by fortune.”

This book is dedicated to the unhappy many who have lived and died lacking opportunity, because, in the starting, the world-wide social structure was wrongly begun.
