It may be a year, it may be ten years, it may be fifty, but no more than that. The United States will break apart, and undergo a massive shift into becoming an aggregate of warring nation states that don’t recognize each other. We will read about parts of the US as we read about Aleppo today. The ability for a future generation to sustain the kind of success that the U.S. has enjoyed since WWII, as a collective whole, is nigh impossible. There are two countries here, at least. It won’t be another civil war like the one we’ve already had.
