In the last few days, I’ve received more than a couple emails from people concerned that we are headed directly for another civil war. Interestingly though, the people I’ve communicated with have different scenarios in mind.
Some think we’re looking at a race war in the near future, perhaps predicated on the eventual outcome of the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.
Others think it’ll be more of a class war, with the so-called 99% rising up against the 1%.
Still others suggest it’ll be the government against the common citizens.
As for myself, I just don’t know. Strong arguments could be made for or against each of those scenarios. What I do know is this — people in general are…antsy. Most people I know, whether they are preppers or not, report feeling nervous and agitated. People are worried and scared about the future, the economy, and are just generally uneasy.
I’ve also noticed a distinct lack of morality and civility in our society lately. One need only to peruse the comments on a random online news story to see how quickly conversations devolve into personal attacks. Some of that is due to the relative anonymity of posting online, of course. But that aggression is filtering out into “the real world” too and I have to wonder how bad it’ll get before things actually swing the other way.
What say you? Do you think we’re headed for some sort of civil war in the near future?
