How a Civil War Happens

The following is a transcription of an exceptional address by Daniel Greenfield. When I excerpted the portion below and posted the link on the Libertas Media Project Facebook, page several commentors complained that, while it was "spot on", it was "waaay too long." Personally, I find that complaint an early symptom of one of the great killers of human intelligence, Aggressive Ignorance. "A I" is found in epidemic levels among the 18-54 demographic for a variety of reasons but the only known cure is Confirmed Factual Information. Here is one of many sources for CFI. Share with friends and colleagues who may sugger from A I. They may thank you for it.

This is a civil war.
There aren’t any soldiers marching on Charleston… or Myrtle Beach. Nobody’s getting shot in the streets. Except in Chicago… and Baltimore, Detroit and Washington D.C.

But that’s not a civil war. It’s just what happens when Democrats run a city into the ground. And then they dig a hole in the ground so they can bury it even deeper.
If you look deep enough into that great big Democrat hole, you might even see where Jimmy Hoffa is buried.
But it’s not guns that make a civil war. It’s politics.
Guns are how a civil war ends. Politics is how it begins.
How do civil wars happen?
Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge.
That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.
