Hail the longbeards

Thursday, 4 October 2007

Guessing what kind of dividing lines would occur in a future American civil war scenario is pointless.  Due to the dualistic nature of humans all of the fractured forces would eventually form two sides, those for and against the federal government.  Long before that conflict, factions will have to fight for overall supremacy.

Liberal-run cities like New York and LA would be the first destroyed.  Liberals believe the State is Almighty (and all-knowing).  Three days without water or electricity is enough to prove who’s zooming who.

Liberal-run cities are like quilts missing patches for serious issues like illegal immigration, gang warfare and wasted government monies, while the other patches are plates of iron:  fascism reserved for those who respect and obey laws.  To wit, anti-smoking laws.  Stupid laws breed contempt for all laws. 

Limited war with Mexico is also of concern.  Open borders and the failure to adopt a single language means the end of a nation.

I see no reason to expand speculation this at this time, because let’s face it, barring a few longbeards up in the hills, no one is really expecting civil war, anymore than Lost Angelenos are expecting huge earthquakes to hit tomorrow (which they can).

In another salute to the longbeards, none of us flatlanders are ready for the First Wave, either.

First Wave?  I don’t know exactly what it is, other than my catchall term for both the first attackers and victims of a violent revolution.  Perpetrators are likely to be an enraged minority–racial, idealogical or  likely both–while the victims will be anyone from old folks hooked to IVs at the Home to teens playing Halo 3 when a Molotov comes crashing through the glass door.  Victims will include those who have never fired a gun or bothered to ever buy a small First Aid kit, people caught totally off-guard, that’s the First Wave.

It doesn’t have to be minorities that trigger the First Wave.  What if Granny sees drug war stormtroopers raiding the house next door, flips out and picks two of them off with a .38?  They kill her back, it’s caught on video and by morning the police station is a smoldering ruin amid rioters.

The strangest thing about the First Wave will be how little it takes to kill off large numbers of peeps because they will refuse to unite with anyone:  they’re the self-absorbed consumerist “rebels” and discount-thinkers of our age.  Only when the Second Wave begins will we see the beginning of local organization and self-imposed martial discipline.  By then the numbers may be too small to matter.

What a glorious future awaits.  All hail the longbeards; maybe they can use a poet.
