Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn ‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’—Matthew 10:34-36

So You Want A Civil War? - by Karl Denninger
A better question is "do you really mean it?"
when it comes to your "beliefs" in the political and social sphere?
I argue you don't and the reason I argue that is
that if you did you
could take entirely-lawful and peaceful actions which do not blow things up and kill
others, but do absolutely alter the course of political
activity and ultimately
are no worse in terms of impact on you and yours than an actual war would be,
but without the war part. - by all means read it ALL! Sobering....but REAL!
DON’T WANT TO WRITE THIS POST - I do not know where it came from, except perhaps from the
fact that over this last year here and on various private groups I’ve seen a
lot of you surface. Because you were in one of those marriages where you always
cancelled each other’s votes. And it didn’t matter. Because you still agreed on
all the important things. Or sometimes, it wasn’t a marriage, but your kids, or
your parents. Or your best friend. Or your sibling. As long as you didn’t
discuss politics, you pretty much got along great. And if the other person
insisted on discussing politics, you could deflect. And then you laughed about
it, and went on.
Popoli: Extrication time - Don't ever hesitate to cut the
wicked, the retards, and the crazies out of your life. Jesus literally told his
12 disciples not to waste their breath on people who were determined not to
accept the truth, so why should you feel any need to do so?
So, did Karl
Denninger literally spell out the reasons for war – civil or otherwise – and thus
laid the responsibility in our lap?
- How to prevent a civil war.........but we won't do what's necessary...because
we're too nice......this article raises some serious questions about our
'civilized' societies where we basically lie to each other. – CL)
Let me conclude with another quote from Karl: Folks if you won't enforce reasonable standards
that, if not
enforced, will screw you or your children then you wildly increase the risk that when the privation
outcome will be severe, civilization-rending violence and if we get that and you refused to
shun people you
will be the reason because you refused, out of your own hubris and convenience, to stand for what you know damn well is
right and exclude anyone and
everyone who supports screwing you.
Spare me your siren songs of
are no such thing.
They're nothing more than demanding that your
life be convenient at
the expense of others, including those who you claim to love and care
about when in fact
you do not; you only care about your convenience and as soon as that is
impacted you don't give a damn about
