Don’t be cavalier in saying country needs another civil war

Posted 21 August 2020 at 9:48 am


Before the conspiracy theorists and FN fans start welcoming another Civil War—as a friend of mine did about a week ago—they might want to reflect on at least two things.

First, people die in civil wars, as my Confederate ancestor general did at Shiloh. Second, another civil war is just what Putin and his pals had in mind when they injected themselves into our Presidential politics in 2016.

Would you want to be complicit in a KGB scheme?

Before you say, “We need a civil war”, you might want to check out the Constitutional definition of treason. It is in there. While you are at it, why not find out how many died in the last one.

Alarmedly yours,
