Pipe dream

Too many of my Rightwing Nazi Deathbeast confreres forget to include a most important point in their deliberations.

Is society becoming Balkanized? Hell, yes!

That’s the half-right part.

Now, stop playing checkers, and think for five seconds about what happens after that.

How did Balkanization work out in 1776?

How about in 1845 in Texas?

Or 1849 in California?

How about 1861 in the South?

How did it work out for the Balkans themselves in 1939?

South Korea in 1950?

South Vietnam in 1960?

Ukraine since 2000?

Even the stupidest slow learner ought to be able to buy a clue here.

To work (assuming it ever can, which I think is a fool’s errand, but we’ll grant it arguendo for the moment), all parties have to be willing to accept the status quo.

Yep. And, parasitical Lefty shitwits aside for the moment, there’s another party to this discussion sitting at the table, the one my compatriots leave out, the one that has more weight to throw around than the others combined: FederalGovCo.

Yeah, yeah, peaceful partition, secession, whatever you prefer to call it, might indeed be a fine thing, at least in theory. But there are a few things we should all bear closely in mind, whether we’re for it or ag’in it:

  • Eglin Air Force Base
  • Hurlburt Air Force Base
  • MacDill Air Force Base
  • NAS Pensacola
  • NS Mayport
  • Naval Air Warfare Center Training System Division
  • Lackland Air Force Base
  • Fort Bliss Army Base
  • Fort Hood Army Base
  • Camp Mabry Army Base

Those are but a small selection of federal military installations in Florida and Texas alone, the ones I could remember off the top of my head. There are many more of them, not a single one of which’s personnel, land area, buildings, machinery and vehicles, and sundry other matériel the federal goobermint is ever going to give up equably, willingly, and non-violently. No matter how passionately one advocates for some form of national divorce, no matter how logical or reasonable the arguments assembled in its favor, it just ain’t happening. It’s preposterous on the very face of it.

Which is not necessarily to say that the secession fantasy can never become reality. There’s one, and only one, way it might, and even then you’ll still have the rage-fueled, hate-driven, batshit-crazy Left to deal with.

You’re still going to have to shoot sumbitches in the face, long past the point you’re sick of it, and they still won’t leave you alone, not ever, until there aren’t any of them left. Look at what happened in Rhodesia. Look at what’s going on in South Africa. Look at Israel. You can’t build the fences high enough to make people who want to kill you stop trying. And there’s no where left to run. You’ll have to hunt them down and exterminate them to bring that happy moment to fruition. Waiting for the knock at the door is planning to fail.

Ayup, that’s about the size of it. Barring some heretofore unlooked-for, near-total FederalGovCo collapse—unimaginable until just recently, but looking more plausible of late—severe enough to force it to retract its claws, relax its stranglehold, and reconsider its consuming lust for total control and limitless power, the only way prospective breakaway states can hope to achieve true independence is through a major conflagration. As things now stand, FederalGovCo will NOT blithely step aside and “allow them to depart in peace.”

How many of the shithole hives could even FEED themselves for a few weeks if “flyover country” did not produce their food? Never mind electricity or fuel or water? One fuel tanker truck catching fire on a bridge will drop that span if it is not quickly put out. And if that span happens to be over a channel into a port city, then it does DOUBLE DUTY.

Barry

Yep. Not one large or medium city will survive if they wish a civil war.

Aesop

Which is only true if people fight one, which was the whole point of why “balkanization” will only last about 7 seconds before the shooting starts.

The idea that all sides will depart to friendly areas is a fool’s assumption, since those don’t even exist now.

The only solution that doesn’t begin and end in warfare is unilateral capitulation.

Barry

I have no idea how that sentence came out that way. It should read “…if there is civil war”.

Jaybo

Fed Inc has an unsolvable problem and that is keeping the dollar good. No tickee no washee. SEIU “patriots” won’t work for free

Our solution is to divest from their dollar

MarkMatis

THEIR solution is to outlaw the dollar and make everything ONLINE!

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." - Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine." - Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril
