Viva la difference

The difference between anticipated—or dreaded—civil war, and the real deal.

Been a powerful lotta yappin’ and prognosticatin’ on the intarwebz about the imagined (imaginary) Civil War we’re in. Probably be a sight more.

So, as a public service for all the Clever Clydes out there who want to be doing play-by-play on the apocalypse, here is a handy recognition guide for recognizing a civil war, versus a tantrum.

Nota bene that this handy field guide is not by any means a complete comparison, just a handy reference card.

In a tantrum, there is a copious quantity of whining, bitching, self-pissing, moaning, and being “triggered”.

In an actual civil war, being “triggered” takes on a much more literal meaning.
Anything solved by a crack on the ass or a punch in the nose is a tantrum.

A civil war invariably involves a body count. Usually, a prodigious one.
Also note that if a tantrum becomes a widespread delusion, it can lead to a civil war.

And, for my money, those widespread delusions are what we really have to worry about.
