First, I want to look at the limits placed on the Israelites--the boundary-statements. What limits did God place on these marching orders? How exhaustive was the command-set? What implications might we draw from these?
Most of the ones I know expect it to break up in their lifetimes into as many as six separate countries, some of which may petition the United States for entry in the Union.
That may or may not happen; I would not, in any case, count Canada out just yet. If you talk with enough Americans, especially to include those who detest the United States, you will get the sense of extreme optimism regarding what a breakup will look like.
They look at things like this: That map is not the United States. This one is much closer: On the whole, though, it shows a good deal of the problem.
In short, there are no red states; there are no blue states. There are instead, counties and neighborhoods and streets and the couch versus the bedroom after an argument with a spouse or significant other over political matters. One is that it is the moderate and right-wing tendency in the red areas that politically constrains the left-wing tendency of the blue.
Remove the red from the blue and the real reds of the bluest blue states run amok, with moderates and moderation suppressed.
I am pretty sure that the same happens in the red states, where the removal of the political Left leaves all kinds of wingnuts, to include of the white-sheeted, pointy-hatted variety, to create or recreate their own particular fantasies, and run roughshod over moderates there.
The second reason is that the history of revolutions is a history of the nuts rising to the top, rather the way feces floats. No, the American so-called Revolution was nothing of the kind.
Rather, it was a conservative rebellion and counter-revolution against a Parliament gone expansively grasping, which was unilaterally trying to change the pre-existing deal.
After all, other than that we threw off the United Kingdom, what changed? The vote and representative government? He was more than a symbol but also more than a tyrant. In any case, his hand rested upon us not merely lightly, but not really at all.
So, no, no American Revolution, hence no precedent, unique to America, for the nuts not taking over. The third reason — no, my list is not exhaustive — that no separation is likely to be amicable, is that the red counties, neighborhoods, streets, and couches are not going to go gently into that long Progressive good night.
Similarly for the very blue Mississippi River Valley. And leave for what? Closely related to the third is a fourth factor, we are tied — at least I am tied — to any number of people in the blue and purple areas by bonds of affection, common outlook, common military service, blood, and the traditional sense of being American, where that has a particular set of meanings and values.
I am quite sure that I am not unique. The heirs of Malcolm X, up in Detroit, are not going to sit idly by while the Klan rounds up their cousins. The heirs of Nathan Bedford Forrest, down in the deep south, are not going to ignore it when the first Gulag gets set up outside Chicago for unreconstructed Catholics and Baptists.
Each is going to help their cousins and co-religionists, as each should. Blood will flow in rivers. Hatreds will grow like weeds in the sun.
Atrocity and counter-atrocity and counter-counter-atrocity will… you get the idea. The short version is: Think, for a United States that begins to break up, of Beirut in the 80s, except written across a continent, written large, and written in blood.A Day of ashio-midori.com Gandhi once said, “The power to question is the basis of all human progress.” Embrace that power by spending a full day or week coming up with questions connected to everyone and everything around you.
