African Americans Brace for a Civil War — Is It Time to Decentralize?

In a world where politically charged conflicts could ignite a civil war, why not look at decentralization as a peaceful, lasting solution?

America is going through a difficult moment, with right versus left making a mockery of civility both online and in public. Whether the ideological divide is going to eventually engulf the whole country, pitting neighbor against neighbor in a war for survival, remains to be seen. Until then, all it takes is a quick glance at Twitter to find countless sources telling tales of vicious attacks brewed by passionate defenses of political ideologies. This brutality might be amplified by online platforms and their users, but to at least one demographic in particular, it signals that things are only getting worse.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  A recent Rasmussen Reports survey found that 44% of black voters believe the U.S. will “experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years,” whereas only 7% of white voters believe that a civil war is “very likely” to break out. On the other hand, 38% of white voters don’t see a civil war taking place in America anytime soon.

Among other minorities, concerns regarding a potential war are also high, with 34% of Latinos and others saying a civil war is at least somewhat likely.

While it’s hard to pinpoint the specific reason why each individual black and Latino respondent believes that a war is imminent, it doesn’t take a great deal of analysis to conclude that the left’s scare tactics are working on their target demographics.

Since the 2016 presidential election when Democratic candidates associated Trump with doomsday scenarios, nuclear wars, and utter decline of the American empire, Americans who lean left politically have been told the end is near.

Removing Trump from office, they repeated, was key to getting America back on track.

As the contagious dissatisfaction spread, even the right began to unite against Trump, building up the tensions and helping the left justify its hateful rhetoric.

As the nation follows the impeachment hearings and listens to 2020 Democratic candidates blaming all that is wrong with America on Trump, it’s safe to say there’s no end to the political divide insight.

How long will it take until a civil war does break out? And if it doesn’t, would half of the country be willing to completely criminalize a certain political ideology to soothe the tensions? Would that mean the other half of the country would be pushed into the shadows, being forced to discuss their political leanings away from the thought police?

In time, the prevailing group would want to implement stern measures against those who refuse to comply. By then, would they advocate for the imprisonment of their fellow Americans? What would the future look like in such a politically divided country?

As explained by the Mises Institute president, Jeff Deist, there’s only one real option for those who want peace.

If we want to come out unscathed from this difficult phase, we must go beyond begging for tolerance. Instead, we must elevate division — but not of the social kind. We must bring back localism, federalism, and yes, political separation.

In a country so large and so diverse as America, allowing people to take control of their communities makes sense. After all, a bureaucrat in Washington, D.C., has absolutely no idea what the head of a household in Boise, Idaho, goes through. Why should he be dictating what kind of political ideology that an individual should subscribe to?

In a world where politically charged conflicts could ignite a civil war, why not look at decentralization as a peaceful, lasting solution?

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
