Will American break apart in next 50 years? Yes, says me
« on: August 09, 2018, 07:22:21 PM »
I have my reasons for this which I should probably detail in a longer-form blog post, but I can't see it ending any other way.  America is doomed to break apart.  The cultural divide is simply too great to sustain a unified nation.  Think of any nation that has emerged through history, and it typically centers around a common culture.  We are entering an age when this common culture still exists, but it is being stretched so far that we are starting to see some cracks. 

Will this end in civil war?  I certainly hope not.  My hope is that some sort of peaceful separation is reached, though this might be a pipe dream.  When it comes down to the details, which side woudl want to give up the rich oil reserves of the South?  Who would get the rich farmland of the Midwest?  What about the major port cities?  This would have such a dramatic impact on the global economy that I have to imagine some people would want to commandeer the division to their choosing. 

But really, what is the alternative?  A single country existing in which one side is content to censor, fine, and probably even jail (or execute) those on the other side of the political spectrum (and if you don't believe me, these kinds of things are already happening, or being suggested)?

Hundreds of years ago people rebelled against political authorities over political disagreements involving autonomy and power disparities.  Today the powers that be have the potential to have vastly more control over the lives of individuals.  That can only last for so long.

Yes America will break apart.  The fractures in American society are becoming more pronounced with each passing day.  It has nothing to do with Donald J. Trump either.  The divides were there to begin with, and the unique figure that Trump is only brings them to the forefront in little jabs and agitations.  The real powder keg issues are abortion, gun control, and gay marriage.  America nearly fell apart during the 1960's and the Vietnam Era still not that long ago.  The Silent Majority who elected Trump have laid down the gauntlet to the Left, and now are emboldened to speak out against political correctness and other rubbish.  On the other side is Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the socialists, and the other fringe alternative leftist groups who cannot stand Christianity or the traditional American heritage/ethos.

As dangerous as Anitifa and some others can be, I think they're actually less dangerous to other on the left who may want to manipulate the American electorate.  I'm thinking of the people who seem to have pulled the strings behind the scenes in the months after the election and before the Inauguration, and then into Trump's Presidency.  It was pretty bad how much leaking went on in those early days, and I can't but help think they were done to help cripple Trump's mandate.
