Despite the honest and extravagant antipathy on both sides, I don’t place high odds on a civil war second act. Mostly because the right doesn’t have the funding, leadership, and uniformity of opinion to fight it, and the left doesn’t have the need. If the only skirmishes fought in the future are between antifa and ATMs then the left wins. Europe will become America, which will become Brazil, which will become South Africa, which will become Rhodesia. And while young SJW parents will still furtively seek Good Schools for their 1.3 theybies, they’ll find the selections slim in Harare. But that’s their well-earned problem.
What I wanted to mention in a bout of blogging sloth was someone else’s opinion about likely resolutions to the experiment being conducted in this American Petri dish. I was reading a piece over at Ron Unz’s site who, according to his resume, has an IQ at least 20 points higher than mine. At any rate, one of his battalion of anonymous commenters held forth on what he/xe believed to be the three most likely and lurid national descents. I’ll let him take it from here, and commenters can take it from there.
The three most likely ways the United States will descend into tyranny, from most likely to least likely are the following:
1. Continuous immigration makes the country a de facto one party state; the democrats win congress and the presidency and retain it through successive election cycles, all legitimized through the fig leaf of democratic voting.
With electoral checks removed, radical leftists will rescind most American rights such as free speech and association – tacitly, they won’t directly say that’s what they are doing, rather they will present it with terms like “hate crime” and the like. Say the wrong thing, and you will get fired, your bank will deny you service, and you will be subject to international media scorn. They’ll start with traditionally “right wing” freedoms like gun rights, speech, and religious affiliation. But they’ll move on to internet anonymity and the secret ballot.
Expect endless media-generated witch trials of dissenters and two minute orgies of hate for white Caucasians, and to a lesser extent, East Asians.
Expect a security state that monitors and records EVERYTHING you do for future use against you should it be necessary – phone calls, internet usage, public travel via CCTV and automobile/cell phone tracking (they already do that)…perhaps even what you do in your own home via technologies that can see through walls, record through television and computer cameras and mics, and inquiries to personal AI assistants like Siri. Quantum computer-based AI will additionally be able to track down internet posters through sophisticated mathematical analysis, encryption breaking, and grammar/syntax analysis.
Future development of AI makes brainwashing and propaganda easier than anyone could have previously imagined. This works miracles at controlling the population…for a while, but even AI can’t erase day-to-day multicultural tensions through personal interactions. People begin disbelieving everything they see and hear from the media. Ironically, this presents propaganda opportunities for foreign governments against the US population.
The country will become increasingly ungovernable. The corrupt oligarchical media, owned and controlled by individuals loyal to the democrat party, lie endlessly on their behalf. The internet is eventually censored using “harassment” and “hate speech” as a pretext. Those who oppose this are labeled supporters of hate – a derivation of the “think of the children” fallacy.
The US tries to counter a rising China militarily but fails. America’s military isn’t committed; it’s just a job in a country no one has any true loyalty to anymore (like the Roman Empire in the early fifth century). There may be a battle over Taiwan that the US navy loses. A multicultural US population has no desire to fight a protracted war with a determined, nationalist and nearly homogeneous China, so the US backs off after a single humiliating sea battle. The event presages a new Chinese century much like US entry into WWI marked a new era or the Russo-Japanese war marked the end of Western military hegemony for the first time since the end of the Middle Ages.
Sensing a sea change, Asian governments like Japan begin rapprochement with China. US alliances falter in Asia.
As SJWs take over Hollywood and churn out leftist agitprop, new centers of culture and entertainment pop up in China. Just as the Russians hoarded Western pop music during the Cold War, many white Americans do the same with Chinese movies and books – their own movies and books being uninteresting propaganda (see the downfall of the US comic book industry for an example of what is to come) – and sometimes even racist anti-white trash.
Diversity (non-white) efforts cripple US industry. Meritorious China becomes even more economically dominant than expected at American expense.
US financial life is punctuated by continual boom/bust cycles as minorities use the government to re-appropriate wealth for themselves at the expense of white Caucasians (see Zimbabwe and South Africa’s looming land grab). We saw something like this with the housing crisis of 2008-9: George W. Bush and Ted Kennedy urged banks to lower lending standards for poor minorities; Wall Street got in on the act and, predictably, people with low incomes couldn’t pay back what they owed and the system came crashing down as a result. Expect this to be a more frequent staple of future American life.
The US’s financial stability is threatened when massively expensive social programs – ineptly thought out and implemented – drive up the federal deficit to record highs; the government raises taxes to cover the losses. This works for a time, but there is only so high taxes can be raised before the economy suffers. A sovereign debt crisis looms. The country becomes ever more socialist.
Racial tensions reach a boiling point as intractable racial disparities in everything remain. Whites begin leaving for Eastern, Western Europe and eventually China and Japan once their populations fall enough for those countries to change their immigration laws. This brain drain crushes the United States.
US standing in the world falls dramatically as Europeans recoil in horror at the prospect of their own people’s looming – similar – fate. Democracy is discredited world wide. Elections still happen, but in many places they simply serve as propaganda to legitimize ruling regimes.
The US attempts to solve its problems by picking fights with smaller countries, the logic being that the population will rally around the flag in response, distracting everyone from internal strife. These military adventures will not go well, leading to increasing internal unrest.
The elite will engage in a Cold War with Russia because the Russians are white; the belief among the establishment is that this will distract America’s majority minorities from attacking white Americans, the country’s single most valuable resource. This leads to a series of dangerous standoffs and, perhaps, even war.
By 2060, the US is much weakened. China has an economy 3-4x larger than the total US economy. China has military bases in most of South America and perhaps even Mexico. China also has a military that dwarfs the US military in technological sophistication, size, and overall determination.
By 2070, the US ends up like the Soviet Union: a powerful external entity (China) foments rebellion among different groups; the country, poor and defeated, splits up. 300 years wasn’t a bad run.
2. The democrats take back all branches of government in 2020. By 2028, it is apparent that no Republican can win the White House ever again. One of the Red States secedes. The US military, purged of patriotic white men and filled with immigrant scabs, brutally attacks said Red State; Obama did something very similar when he started filling the military with immigrants. Also, one poll after Charlottesvile indicated that the vast majority of the military would favor using the national guard to shut down those protestors, so they definitely aren’t on our side (your feelings about the protestors and their views are irrelevant, but the sentiment expressed by the military in regards to the expression of constitutionally-protected public beliefs is astonishing); don’t be surprised when the military does whatever the democrats demand in the future, including shooting protestors or putting down rebellions with force.
This is not a civil war because you don’t have a situation where groups fight over control of the government. This is a massacre perpetrated by the left…and it’s been building for years now – from “punch a Nazi” and encouraging violence against Sarah Huckabee to antifa terrorist attacks on protestors and doxxing dissenters.
Future historians (Chinese and Indian) will wonder why Red States didn’t break off sooner when they had the chance. They will point out that a frog put in a pot won’t leap out if the temperature is raised slowly. They will use this to remind themselves that democracy is ultimately a fool’s errand.
3. Some patriotic element of the Deep State concocts a plan for Trump to remain president permanently. The 2020 election is called off. The democrat party is banned and voting is limited to republicans. The government works to reverse the country’s looming demographic disaster.
