20 Preppers Speculate What Civil War 2.0 Would Look Like in America

The ShieldWall Network

From The Organic Prepper

The division in America has become so dramatic over the past year that many people can only foresee it heading one place: Civil War.

There’s a pronounced uptick in violence and protests (often going hand in hand.) Free speech is being crushed by the opposition with the mere threat of violent responses. Statues and memorials are being vandalized or defended. Protesters show up armed and armored, ready for battle. The media throws gasoline on these flames with reports solely laying the blame on one side. Some groups are openly planning sedition and no one is trying to stop them.

Our country has reached a point of such division that it’s hard to imagine how we could once again become united.

The events are snowballing…

Yes, there is a civil war looming in the United States.

Social Justice: an analysis – part 1 of 4

The Orthosphere

poster,210x230,f8f8f8-pad,210x230,f8f8f8.lite-1u1Part 1 of Social Justice: an analysis has been published at Gates of Vienna. This essay began as an attempt to summarize the key arguments of Thomas Sowell’s The Quest for Cosmic Justice. This is what I had done for Thomas Sowell in “Intellectuals and Race.” As writing proceeded, however, the discussion broadened to take in topics not explicitly covered by Sowell – so while The Quest for Cosmic Justice is the inspiration for the final result and many of the points are Sowell’s, it no longer seemed appropriate to give the article the same kind of title as my piece on Intellectuals and Race.

Since social justice is driven by resentment towards the successful resulting in their scapegoating, this is very much the territory analyzed so successfully by René Girard, hence his thinking is especially relevant.

Name any human characteristic and barring two individuals, someone will be…

Poe and his Frenchmen and Baudelaire and his Americans

Baudelaire 01 B Facing Left.jpg Charles Baudelaire (1821 – 1867): Successor of Joseph de Maistre

The spectacle of decadence has appealed to poets since the time of Juvenal, the heyday of whose authorship came early in the Second Century AD.  The hypertrophy and grotesquery of the Imperial City thus provide the background for Juvenal’s remarkable Satires, which presciently mirror the cultural degeneracy of the early Twenty-First Century’s civic scene, quite as well as they do for that of their own Latinate-Imperial milieu.   Did Juvenal’s eyes witness him the Urbs on the Tiber or the City by the Bay?  Is he writing about Rome’s Stoic salons or UC Berkeley’s Philosophy Department during the visiting professorship of Michel Foucault or again about the disintegration of the humanities departments generally under Deconstruction?  “Infection spread this plague, / and will spread it further still… You will be taken up, over time / by a very queer brotherhood,” as Juvenal…

Husband uses legally-owned firearm to rescue wife from two armed criminals

WINTERY KNIGHT

Pew Research: reported defensive gun usage Pew Research: reported defensive gun usage

The mainstream media, and the culture at large, seems to spend a lot more time talking about multiple victim public shootings. But they ignore the times when legally-armed law-abiding citizens defend themselves from criminals. Here’s an example of what that looks like, reported from KHOU Houston local news.

Excerpt:

Investigators said it all started when the man’s wife pulled into their driveway Tuesday night. Then the two armed suspects jumped out and tried to rob her.

First, they took her purse, and then they tried to force her into the house. However, that is when her husband showed up.

He heard the commotion from inside, grabbed his gun and ended up exchanging gunfire with the intruders.

Fortunately, the couple weren’t hit, but one of the suspects was hit in the head, police said. The other suspect took off running.

Police said the injured…

America Falling: The Coming Civil War

The Roper Report

Game designer follows popular trend to tap into American’s growing obsession with the coming civil war. 

Forget Risk. A new board game simulates the first year of a hypothesized first year of a near-future civil war across the lower forty-eight United States. Players can command either the red (Right Wing) or blue (Left Wing) forces in multiple campaigns. The game also allows the possibility of pop-up separatist forces in different regions and representing different ideologies, from the Republic of Texas and the Islamic State in America to New Jerusalem, Aztlan, La Raza, Aryan Nation, LGBTQ Rainbow Coalition, New Afrika, and Ecotopia, along with several others.

Description from the publisher:

Predicting the imminent collapse of the United States is a journalistic and academic commonplace as old as the republic itself. In fact, the first op-ed pieces on that theme began appearing in newspapers–both within the country itself and elsewhere around the…

A Banal Basis Of Liberals’ Fanaticism

PA

“Globohomoism relies on conformity, the consensus of the elites is enforced on the plebes via allocation of status based on moral exhibitionism. What frustrates them most about Trump is he didn’t gain his status through their sanctioned pathway, he got rich, famous and popular through sheer force of will. So their favored tool, social ostracization, doesn’t work on him. He’s a free man, he will win or lose based on his own wits and merits, not by repeating globohomo scripts. To be able to carve one’s own path is all anyone can ask for.” – williamk

This helps explain the anti-MAGA fervor of ordinary shitlib Whites who oughtta know better.

My personal discussions with them, back when I thought that communication is possible, had me mystified by their fanaticism. My appeals to their personal experience, parental instincts, or other forms of rational self interest, not to mention appeals to…
