During the coronavirus hoax and the George Floyd riots, most people kept their comments and criticisms to private conversations and internet postings. They didnt respond to forced lockdowns or violence in the streets with violence of their own, although many of them have the ability and capacity to do so. Their restraint has been the primary force keeping whatever remains of the peace in this country.
The restraint stems from respect for that peace, their stake in maintaining it, and a fading hope that things will eventually get back to normal. People who run businesses, have jobs, own property, and are engaged in honest production have a vested interest in civil order. Only reluctantly will they overtly oppose unjust and idiotic government measures or rampaging rioters. Keeping their cold rage on ice, the vast majority will be moved to action only when they feel they have no other choice.
That day is coming. Consider the philosophical obscenity of governments renouncing their only justified reasons for existenceprotecting individual rights, particularly the foundational rights of security for people and property. The Minneapolis city council voted to disband its police force and other jurisdictions are considering defunding theirs. Minneapolis and Seattle abandoned police stations to mobs. No word yet if criminals are going to swear off crime and embark on productive pursuits, or where theyll find such pursuits with 30 plus million unemployed. The only certainly is that official appeasement will elicit nothing but what appeasement always elicitscontempt.

Thank you for posting this analysis. The comments following the lengthy article are worth reading as well.
Thomas Sowell, “If you are not prepared to use force to defend civilization, then be prepared to accept barbarism.”
We are part of the “real” resistance, not the manufactured one being foisted upon us in the decades old “civil” Civil War.
If the DEMONcRATS Win in November, people will see what real Authoritarianism looks like.
Love it. Enjoyed your book too.
Splitting the nation up will not work. Communists never stop conquering others. Our marxist following citizens have been brainwashed, many irredeemably so. They will never stop trying to destroy us.
All I know is that I have three shotguns and a few cases of double wad double slug US Army camo green shotgun shells, and a Ruger AC-556 full auto machine gun.
Im ready to resist with extreme prejudice.
Chuckles, now that’s entertainment.
For the first ten years allow free immigration between the new countries so everyone has the opportunity to migrate to the country for which they have the most affinity. Split up the nukes and other military assets so each country can deter attack. The countries will work out taxes, trade, and other economic arrangements as they see fit. Those may run the gamut from Marxist collectivism to laissez faire (where SLL would end up).

Im in my mid-50s. I have nieces and nephews, as well as children of friends that are important to me, and deserve the same freedom and liberty we have been blessed with.
As corny as it comes out, there are people and philosophies I am willing to die for.
If it becomes my turn then so be it. They may win in the end but it wont be because we didnt fight.
Thank you for posting this article.
I will not surrender.
Nor will I bow down to islam, which means submit.
The divisions you note are pretty well defined in the later books of the futurist Robert Heinlein. As I recall his book Friday provides the best descriptions of what has been labeled the Balkanized America.
It’s prescient that he realized decades ago the political boundaries that seem to exist exist today and that you have noted.
I long knew the reactionary bratty RESIST was something of an irony.
It is WE conservatives who must resist.
Understood. Decades older here but will do what I can.
