it is a very good blog, and very early on they published a letter i wrote critical of charles at little green footballs.

Good ideas, John... I am reminded of a discussion over at Gates of Vienna (I think) about impending wars, namely a European civil war and even possibly an American civil war. What's your take on this? Do you think America is headed for a civil war?

i suppose nothing is inevitable.

the north could have simply surrendered fort sumpter after a few shots, and gone home, and let the south break away.

but, it seems increasingly as though the united states is peopled by two societies, ... , feels that way to me, anyhow.

the situation is increasingly rancorous & rapidily less civil.

could war spring from a conflict over gay rights? doesn't seem real plausible.

over abortion?

over gun ownership?

over islamic immigration and the proper way to pursue a path in fighting the islamic jihad?

over civil liberties, and substantive liberties?

over our sovereignty and/or the surrender of the same to international organizations?

it could happen. over a light and transient reason, perhaps not. but, i have seen many a fight erupt between people who just rubbed each other the wrong way.

and, there are lots of people who just don't like being rubbed the wrong way.

we are increasingly less neighborly to each the other, don't you agree?
