Why the Events in Gaza are Going to Lead to a Civil War Here

I know this sounds like I’m a crazy conspiracy theorist, but I’ve been feeling it in my bones for several years that a civil war among Americans was not only very possible but actually even more likely to occur than not.

It really doesn’t take a genius to get that sense; if you feel it too, you’re not crazy. If you are sensitive to energies, you’re already plenty overwhelmed by this. No amount of Kardashian drama can distract you from it.

There are two sides in this country and we all know what I’m talking about and which side you’re on. Are you generally in favor of the old order, doing things slowly and not shaking things up too much (especially if it would threaten the markets because you’re counting on your 401k)? You feel a little uncomfortable with all the people now talking about therapy and making a big deal about their sexuality. You just wish they would keep their differences to themselves like people did in your day and keep getting bullied in the workplace if they were too different. You liked it when people knew their place; it kept them in line.

Or are you in favor of pushing toward more acceptance of everyone and having a more European style of government? So what if some people are LGBTQ+ or autistic; we just need to love everybody and leave other people to do what they want as long as it’s not hurting anyone.

I think the conditions have been shaping up to where these two factions are going to be fighting against each other in a civil war. A violent revolution looks pretty inevitable.

Why I would say something so extreme

It doesn’t really take much to point to everything in the economy that’s absolute shit unless you’re in the top 10 percent. All politics are local, as the saying goes.

The costs of everything are absolutely exploding. I was in the grocery store tonight and apparently, we now live in a reality where vegetable oil is $6.99 a bottle. Subway’s footlong subs that were once famously $5 are now up to $14. Most people are paying record amounts of rent and almost everyone I know has at least one side hustle. We have to; we can’t afford to make it otherwise.
