More Recognition of a Modern Civil War

Economic Noise

An increasing realization that a modern civil war is underway is apparent. My previous article cited an author/email (Mr. Jack Minzey) who appeared to be precocious, at least in his early recognition of what was happening. Recently, numerous other articles suggesting that a modern civil  war is actually underway have appeared.

Increased recognition of this issue is important, although suggested solutions are rare and the problem may be intractable.  “Nature abhors a vacuum” is a truism that ultimately will eliminate this problem. Sadly, that is probably not the most effective way.

The article below is by David Solway. It is lengthy (actually in two parts) but worthwhile in terms of its perspective:

Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures

It is a state of affairs that, in its insidious way, is no less critical than the bloody civil war that split the nation in the 1860s. There’s no blood in the streets yet — or maybe just a little — but the nation is split pretty much in half. One half wishes to destroy the other through a series of destabilizing tactics: electoral fraud, fake news, negonomics, industrial dereliction, globalist doctrine, climate change scam, university indoctrination, Blue State model primary and secondary education, the divisive concept of a “living constitution,” trade deficits, pro-Islamic logrolling, radical feminism, gender dysphoria, pro-choice abortion favoring a sub-replacement fertility rate, runaway entitlements, censorship-prone social media monopolies like FacebookTwitterYouTube and Google, the abolition of the Second Amendment, open borders, caravan immigration, sanctuary cities, politically correct — and in some places, compelled — speech, judicial overreach, ubiquitous surveillance of American citizens,  foreign policy surrender and revolutionary advocacy.

This is about as serious as it gets. Sarah Hoyt at PJ Media — along with a fair number of her readers — believes America can recover its spirit without a “revolution” — a term which muddies the waters somewhat. The revolution we are witnessing is a vendible of the Left; what is needed is a counter-revolution. “Let’s hope we can recover our liberty without [a revolution],” she writes in guarded optimism. “The other side will still win some battles, but we’re winning the war.” Were it only so. Hoyt uses the metaphor of the half-empty/half-full glass, opting for the latter. The trouble is, there is no glass. Since at least the time of Woodrow Wilson, the Left has been carving longer and deeper inroads into the culture and the political landscape, and is now occupying the citadel. It is not about to go away or shrivel into a benign archaism. Despite the election of a people’s candidate like Donald Trump, the Left’s power continues to grow and consolidate.
