“We actually know now that the two best predictors of whether violence is likely to happen are, whether a country is an anocracy, and that’s a fancy term for a partial democracy, and whether ethnic entrepreneurs have emerged in a country that are using racial, religious, or ethnic divisions to try to gain political power,” Professor Barbara Walter of the University of California at San Diego told CNN last week. “And the amazing thing about the United States is that both of these factors currently exist, and they have emerged at a surprisingly fast rate.”
Walter serves on the CIA’s Political Instability Task Force, which assesses the health of countries around the world. The task force isn’t allowed to turn its gaze on its home country, but Walter did so on her own (she has a book on the topic coming out in January).
“The United States is pretty close to being at high risk of civil war,” she concluded.
UPDATE: I got this book from the library and lasted about ten minutes. It’s just leftist rhetoric saying, “We’re heading into a civil war and it’s all the right’s fault.” Don’t read it, or if you do, get it from your library; no need to give this leftist asshole any money. By the way, she works for the CIA, a terrifying fact.
Dana Milbank, Washington Post douchebag, also discusses Walter’s findings in a recent Op-Ed piece. Because Milbank is a howling cunt, he of course blames the slide toward civil war on “Trump” and “Trump supporters.”
