Editor’s Note: There has been a big surge of Civil War 2 hysteria in the media this week. It is a transparent attempt to stir up their demoralized base amid Joe Biden’s terrible poll numbers.
I’ve been laughing about this stuff all day.
For the record, I don’t think a state will secede this year. I don’t think Civil War 2 will begin either. I also don’t think we will see a violent insurgency or accelerationists lashing out. I assumed we would see a lot more “1/6” hysteria. I expected our politics to get more polarized. I thought we would see more radicalization. We’re going to continue building up to something ahead.
There is one thing though that is very similar between our times and the late 1850s. As Americans got closer to the War Between the States, it became much more common to see disunion invoked as both a threat and a prophecy. It became conceivable and was on the table.
It took decades for our people to get there. Every man has his limit. There is so only so much shit they can take.
