For the first time in recent memory, Civil War 2.0 threatens America: the country is permanently divided into two groups, one a Leftist inclusive group, and the other a realist group that wants sanity before ideology.
This has been building for some time. Thomas Chittum wrote about it in the 1990s, and the certainly of division between the suburban/rural traditional America and the new group of cosmopolitan, multicultural, feminist, Leftist and neurotic people from the big cities.
Obviously, this could be avoided by separating the groups and letting them make rules for themselves in their local communities, but this will both please no one and create a divided nation which is more easily defeated.
This leaves only fighting it out.
