It’s clear to me that America, as a nation, has collectively given up. The forces of autocracy or civil war that are tearing us apart are just too strong. As I keep saying, we’re past the event horizon.
We’re either going to implode (autocracy) or explode (civil war.)
America is in this strange post-accountability era where Trump and his cronies are all above the law because we’re afraid to upset MAGA. This, of course, only emboldens them to commit more crimes. And, in the end, either we get some accountability through murdering each other in cold blood for political reasons or we turn into a MAGA autocracy and that’s that.
Given empirical evidence at the moment, I think we’re going to become an autocracy. Blue States just don’t have the willpower or leadership to leave the Union en mass. I get really irritated when people say our future is the “Troubles” like what they had in Northern Ireland. That is total bullshit. That says more about MAGA wanting to use all those guns they want to fuck to murder people like me than it says anything about what our future may be.
A “Troubles” situation is not applicable for the United States. We’re far more likely to simply skip that step and become an autocracy. And if we do have large scale political violence, it’s going to be because Blue States leave the Union.
Anyway, because of macro, tectonic issues this is the twilight of traditional America. Either this is a modern antebellum period, or we just going to become an autocracy and then the issue is how much do we drift into being a Russia clone.
