It’s the second American civil war, and its origins predate the November elections fraud, which seems on track to steal the presidency from the rightful winner, Donald J. Trump. The genesis of this civil war is the ideo-cultural war that has waxed and waned across the nation since the late 1960s. So, November’s election thievery might better be regarded as an outgrowth and escalation -- a potentially nation-shattering escalation – of that decades-old cultural conflict.
We are in the initial phase of the new civil war. Call it the phony war, which was also the “strangely quiet start to World War II.” The Second World War went eight months without significant hostilities on the Western Front, months marked by puzzlement and hesitancy (see the “Confetti War,” which stemmed from the Phony War.)
America’s first civil war had its phony phase of sorts, too. Lincoln was elected on November 6, 1860. Fort Sumter was attacked on April 12, 1861. Over five months, tensions built, and then hostilities commenced.
The parallels aren’t exact, of course. But the phony phase of this new civil war is reminiscent. One of the grievous errors made in warfare is fighting the current war like the last. In this instance, it’s expecting that wars have orthodoxies, and if those orthodoxies aren’t present, then there isn’t war. Understandings must change.
They regard working- and middle-class Americans as inferiors -- rubes to be had. Anti-liberty forces occupy many -- if not most -- of the power centers in the nation. And, as stated, they’re pursuing a highly complex silent coup. The war being waged is far too sophisticated and devious for patriots to ever figure out, much less counter effectively, they reason.
But the new civil war isn’t just about cultural dominance. It’s very much about greater power acquisition for elites and their subsets. The elites wish to obliterate America as founded because they covet tyranny (in whatever modern manifestation) as a means of perpetuating their advantages. Their impulses are as old as the human species.
Liberty is nonnegotiable, and patriots vow unabashedly: Sic Semper Tyrannis.
America isn’t its real estate. It’s unique in human history, in that it’s an idea and ideal, the product of timeless principles and enduring values. America as conceived in liberty is what the fight is for.
