SunBakedSurburb: [Following a separation of Red and Blue America], Bluestans will also be characterized by constant ethnic friction, continued middle class white flight, Byzantine and corrupt governments, and eventually implosion. Here in California, I see your prophecy at work.A Civil War II would be a disaster, and I hope everyone tries to avoid it.
I agree with this, btw. Bluestans would be wealthier…for a while…until the low trust society that typically characterizes Diversitopias eats away at that blue-hued human and social capital. If Redstans encourage their Divershitty to abscond for Bluestans, and Bluestans continue clinging to their virtue signaling for social status points, then it wouldn’t take long for Bluestans to get overrun by dysfunction and overwhelmed by high taxes to pay the Danegeld to their vibrancy. The Bluestans would start richer, become poorer, and finish collapsed, while the Redstans would maintain an even keel of moderate economic health and very high social health. ...
This is why I predict that if there is a blood-drenched Civil War II, it will be the fault of White libs who won’t tolerate White cons attempting a peaceful separation from them. And, unlike Civil War I when White libs had a facsimile of moral high ground to prevent secession, this time around all the moral justification will be with the FreeWhites who just want to get out from under the yoke of White lib tyranny.
That being said, the USA is being split in ways that will not get resolved anytime soon. The war could be red states v. blue states, or whites v. non-whites, or Christians v. non-Christians, or nationalists v. globalists, or traditionalists v. reformers. If the war comes, many will have to choose sides, even tho they do not entirely agree with either side.
