For around 25 years the US has been in the middle of a second civil war….this time there is no death and destruction but rather fought with ideas and political theater…..
I recently read a great piece in that conservative icon, the National Review…….
It is time that our society acknowledge a sad truth: America is currently fighting its Second Civil War.
In fact, with the obvious and enormous exception of attitudes toward slavery, Americans are more divided morally, ideologically, and politically today than they were during the Civil War. For that reason, just as the Great War came to be known as the First World War once there was a Second World War, the Civil War will become known as the First Civil War when more Americans come to regard the current battle as the Second Civil War.
I do not agree with some of their suppositions the fat is that ………The very soul of the nation is at stake.
