In all of my time on this Earth, I don’t think I’ve seen too many weeks crazier than this one. And that’s saying something, considering how batshit insane things got during the Great Panic a few weeks ago. It’s actually hard to believe that we are not even a full month removed from the Kung Flu lockdowns of 2020 – and yet we’re already seeing entire American cities in open rebellion against lawful authority and the laws of the United States of America.
It all serves as a very stark, and deeply unpleasant, reminder of the fact that the coming civil war in the USA is going to be anything but “civil”. This is going to be the most horrific and terrible war that could be imagined.
The previous War Between the States, that ripped the country apart and killed over 10% of its population at the time, will look like a civilised Sunday outing by comparison. And that was a war in which a Union army marched through the state of Georgia leaving a 60-mile-wide trail of destruction in its wake and burned one of its greatest cities to the ground.
The most likely relevant comparisons are probably the fratricidal Balkan Wars of the 1990s, the genocides of Rwanda during the same time period, and the Spanish Civil War, in which Communists and nationalists slaughtered each other by the thousands for three years.
The background to that war is instructive for people in the USA right now. Remember that the anarchists and Communists in that war were primarily the educated urban elite, and the nationalists were religious land-holding aristocrats, by and large. The divisions were not quite that neat, but it’s close enough for our purposes.
Look around at the USA today. What do you see?
Yep. The vast mass of land-holders of Trumpland against the urban elites of the Clinton Archipelago.
Get ready for what is coming, boys. It’s going to be bad – really bad.
In the meantime, though, let’s try to turn our minds to more pleasant thoughts with this week’s dose of that which is beautiful, if not necessarily good and true.
Her name is Sara Natividad Long, age 27 from Pensacola in the USA – though apparently she is of Spanish origin. (One of my readers lives quite close to Pensacola. And he’s single. Jus’ sayin’, buddy – you might want to look her up.) She is known for her work modeling swimwear for various brands, and I think it’s fair to say that she is easily one of the most spectacular women ever to grace these pages.
Happy Friday, boys. Try to rest from the travails of the week, get your heads back into the right places, and pray for those around you who are suffering right now – there are an awful lot of us going through pain and misery, and prayer is always a useful palliative for those afflictions. Be strong, hang tough, and we’ll get through what is coming.
