The hardcore left will not bend or compromise any of their beliefs and neither will the conservative right. And, sadly, only the folks in middle America see what is coming.
The coastal elites which make up the majority of the leftists in this country are wearing blinders and do not believe or will even consider that this country is on the brink of another civil war. I would imagine that a similar view was held by their counterparts in Yugoslavia just before their civil war. To remind those who do not remember, Yugoslavia was considered the “Paris of the East” in Europe. It was very prosperous and even sponsored the winter Olympics at Sarajevo in 1984. But, now, after the war, there are seven separate countries where one used to exist, and none are as prosperous as Yugoslavia once was.
