America’s Cold Civil War

Six years ago I wrote a book about Barack Obama in which I predicted that modern American liberalism, under pressures both fiscal and philosophical, would either go out of business or be forced to radicalize. If it chose the latter, I predicted, it could radicalize along two lines: towards socialism or towards an increasingly post-modern form of leadership. Today it is doing both. As we saw in Bernie Sanders’ campaign, the youngest generation of liberals is embracing socialism openly—something that would have been unheard of during the Cold War. At the same time, identity politics is on the ascendant, with its quasi-Nietzschean faith in race, sex, and power as the keys to being and meaning. In the #MeToo movement, for example—as we saw recently in Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation battle—the credo is, “Believe the woman.” In other words, truth will emerge not from an adversarial process weighing evidence and testimony before the bar of reason, but from yielding to the will of the more politically correct. “Her truth” is stronger than any objective or disinterested truth.

I have thought about the possibility of a hot civil war and what it might look like. I don't think it would look like the last Civil War with men fighting in uniforms, a lot has changed since then. I also don't think it would be sustainable for many reasons. But obviously something will have to give at some point, we cannot maintain this stalemate forever. I'm thinking the more the progressive Left becomes radicalized the more they may be painting themselves into a corner. They are putting themselves at odds with the majority of normal people who just want to live their lives. That could be the very thing that unites as all, or at least I hope. Thanks for the article.

I'll also add that another possibility is some sort of great spiritual awakening like has happened many times in American history. The cultural Marxists understood that Christianity was a counterrevolutionary force that acted as an impenetrable bulwark against their progressive ideology. That is why they have targeted it so viciously and have eroded it to a great degree, allowing them to make huge headways. But I don't think we are so far gone that people wouldn't turn to a higher power if things got bad enough.

I agree with you 1) that a hot civil war is not likely to be sustained in this day and age of interdependency of supply chains and 2) people who can't find answers in the wiki-verse may seek something even more omnipotent and omniscient than what they have available in their secular world.

I have been feeling the same way as you, Watchman. Something has to give at some point. I don't know what it will look like, but, I feel something is coming. This can't go on forever.

We sure are living in some pretty interesting and dangerous times.
