American Civil War, a New Outbreak?


America’s stability is increasingly an undercurrent in political discourse.

“We keep saying, ‘It can’t happen here,’ but then, holy smokes, it can.”

The pattern of civil strife has evolved worldwide over the past sixty years.

Five conditions (are pushing US civil strife): entrenched national polarization, with no obvious meeting place for resolution; increasingly divisive press coverage and information flows; weakened institutions, notably Congress and the judiciary; a sellout or abandonment of responsibility by political leadership; and the legitimization of violence as the “in” way to either conduct discourse or solve disputes.

President Trump “modeled violence as a way to advance politically and validated bullying during and after the campaign,” Keith Mines writes in Foreign Policy. “Judging from recent events the left is now fully on board with this,” he continues, citing anarchists in anti-globalization riots as one of several flashpoints. “It is like 1859, everyone is mad about something and everyone has a gun.”

“We never agreed on the outcome of the Civil War and the direction the country should go in. The postwar amendments were highly contentious — especially the Fourteenth Amendment, which provides equal protection under the law — and they still are today. What does it mean to deliver voting rights to people of color? We still don’t know...”

“American Disunion, Then and Now” -- “Parallels and analogies are always risky, but we do have weakened institutions and not just polarized (political) parties but parties that are risking disintegration ... “So, watch the parties” as an indicator of America’s health.”

“(T)he spark in Charlottesville — taking down a statue of Robert E. Lee — doesn’t have to do with civil war. People are not debating the Civil War. They’re debating American society and race today.”
