Imagining US Civil War 2.0, by Richard Solomon
Bill Gates warned of a probable civil war. He got covid right. His tabletop pandemic simulation at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health predicted the real thing months before the official outbreak. He even knew to patent the mRNA vaccines. Given his Oracle of Delphi track record, I take his predictions seriously.
I know a little dummy-level macro physics. Quantum physics is beyond my grasp. The Conversion of Energy law states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transferred. At some point an abused population gets pissed. Like steam escaping from a pressure cooker release valve, that anger needs to go somewhere. Either upward toward the ruling class, or poor slob versus poor slob. Otherwise, it explodes like a stainless steel shrapnel bomb, taking out everyone in the kitchen.
When creating the United States, the Founding Fathers borrowed from the Roman republic model. The Roman Empire never experienced revolutions. Rome fought oligarch-backed civil wars. As a general rule, until collapse, global empires experience civil wars, not revolutions. Ironically, like the Roman plutocratic republic, the US plutocratic republic became dysfunctionally corrupt and morphed into a mafia global empire. Like science fiction writer Philip K. Dick repeated throughout his “Valis” novel- “The (Roman) Empire Never Ended.”
If an empire exports its war machine globally, at some point that war machine comes home. The spiritual laws of karma and secular CIA blowback theory support that idea.
Based on the aforementioned pseudo-theorems, I think it’s worth imagining what a US civil war 2.0 might look like. Too many variables exist to know exactly how it would play out, but using conjecture, I’ll try to cobble together an abbreviated rough theoretical model.
Like the Rolling Stones song “Gimme Shelter” said:
“Ooh, a storm is threatening. My very life today.
If I don’t get some shelter. Ooh yeah I’m gonna fade away
War, children. It’s just a shot away. It’s just a shot away.”
Some say Americans will revolt. As in a revolution. America never had a pure revolution. The American Revolution was a hybrid revolutionary civil war. In addition to a breakaway from Britain—it was a war between two factions of the colonist ruling class. Nation-founding plutocrats versus old money plutocrats loyal and connected to Britain. After the British occupational forces were defeated, the loyalists hauled ass to England or emigrated to Canada. The Founding Fathers seized the loyalists’ property and assets. Instead of distributing the confiscated loot to the colonial soldiers as promised, the Founding Fathers kept it for themselves. Real gangsta sh!t. We did get a Bill of Rights.
The John Locke-inspired “Declaration of Independence”, written primarily by the brilliant political analyst and psychologically conflicted Thomas Jefferson states:
“- That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness… it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
That ain’t happening. The collective American mind is too “dumbed down” (cognitively castrated) and the population is too fragmented for organized mass revolution. Don’t despair. We might get civil war.
The 1860s US Civil War was primarily an economic paradigm war. The Southern agrarian plutocrats backed the Black manned slave labor system. The Northern industrialist plutocrats favored debt-wage slavery powered by European mass immigration.
Given that the first US civil war was an oligarchic conflict, what would today’s US-based oligarchs fight over in a 2.0 civil war? Slices of cherry pie. Control of population centers. What would the hoi polloi fight over? Trans bathrooms. Abortion. Race issues. School prayer. Whatever else oligarchs don’t care about.
If the oligarchy knows civil war is inevitable, they’re going to control it. How would the optics of a Rothschild Zionist-managed civil war look? Controlled opposition vs controlled opposition: Think Bill Gates vs Elon Musk. Steven Crowder vs The Young Turks. Breitbart vs MSNBC. Ted Cruz vs Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (she’s fine). Christian Zionist mega-church vs Epstein-Harvard (The heads of the academic departments and ex-president were regular guests at Epstein Island). Antifa vs Q-Anon. War with Russia firsters vs War with China firsters.
Any civil war discussion needs to factor in the Pentagon. They control the soldiers and weapon systems. If the MIC split into two factions, I imagine we’d see something like “woke” Pentagon vs “family values” Pentagon, with Raytheon owning both sides.
I don’t see any intentional Battle of Antietam mega-army fighting mega-army scenes. Unlike Springfield rifles and Gatling guns—F35 fighter jets, stealth bombers, and ICBMs cause serious damage to infrastructure and oligarch holdings. Mushroom clouds spouting up across America is bad for business. The rules of engagement would need to be carefully controlled. An internecine US nuclear war is scarier than Black Jesus.
What’s the oligarch civil war endgame? Consolidation of empire. Chris Hedges has written extensively on how Christian Nationalism is the next likely phase of dying empire. I agree. It’s the smart move. Rainbow flags can only take you so far.
Like ancient Rome, the US is a multicultural empire. To keep Rome’s diverse groups from splintering, Emperor Constantine made Christianity the official state religion. In America, Whites, Latinos, and Blacks make up the bulk of the population. All are predominantly Christian- at least by birth. America’s remaining unifiers are football, smartphones, Google, and the threat of state violence. Mushroom Cloud Jesus might be the empire’s last bottle of Elmer’s Glue. I prefer Hippie Jesus over Mushroom Cloud Jesus.
Restoring school prayer, filling up prosperity gospel mega-churches, and outlawing “gayness” won’t restore America’s manufacturing base, rebuild its decayed infrastructure, or clean up the poisoned rivers. Nor will it prevent the upward transfer of wealth that comes from corporate governance, endless MIC war, and a Fed owned by 8 banking families.
Christian (Zionist) Nationalism might keep the dying empire on life support for a little while longer, but collapse is inevitable. All empires crash—pathologically corrupt ones sooner than later. If Christian Nationalism failed to keep the food rations above starvation level, WW3 seems like the next logical play. If the international bankers remained on top and human civilization stayed intact after WW3, I suppose the next phase would be One World Government dystopian dictatorship.
As an aside, I prefer the Founding Fathers’ separation of church and state. Many people don’t groove in religious environments. On a personal level, as a Jewish Hebrew Israelite (Jew) who follows the Tao, I could function well in a society managed by Christians who ran the “Christ” program. An unlikely scenario. Rothschild Zionist Christianity has the guns, money, and numbers.
If oligarch-managed civil war could prolong the empire’s lifespan, it also holds the potential to shorten it. As demonstrated by Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Ukraine, neocon/neoliberal ventures turn into massive clusterf*cks. What if a civil war went sideways and started whipping around like a live electric cable in a windstorm? A case of controlled chaos turning into uncontrolled chaos.
Like a dog whistle radio signal, chaos emits a unique frequency. Certain personality types get activated. The predators are one such group. Not the pervo or Wall Street kind. I mean the lion, scorpion, wolf, rattlesnake, and hawk. When those guys roam free, it makes for “interesting times.” And don’t forget about the psycho-nihilists. Like Miley Cyrus said in her bubblegum pop song—“It’s a party in the USA.”
Where a civil war gone sideways winds up is hard to say. I suppose it could turn out really good or really bad. Anything from a new and improved American republic to Mad Max.
Civil war pushes competing factions into conflict. It also brings disparate groups together. To further mutate Shakespeare’s line—“Civil war makes strange bedfellows.” In the US, we see the traditional “right” and “left” growing closer due to environmental stress caused by neoliberal zio-capitalism. Paleoconservative libertarian Ron Paul and democratic socialist Dennis Kucinich spoke at the same DC “Rage Against the War Machine” rally. Despite their political differences, the former congressmen are friends.
Conversely, “left-wing” Ellen DeGeneres and “right-wing” war criminal George W. Bush attend sports outings together. “Conservative” Liz Cheney and “liberal” Chuck Schumer stand united in their defense of the MIC-Wall Street-AIPAC agenda.
“Bizarro world” zio-politics make “right” and “left” labels obsolete. A civil war scenario only offers two sides to choose from. That means people who adhere to widely varying ideologies play on the same team- at least for the duration of the conflict.
Any US civil war 2.0 analysis needs to factor in race. America is a racially charged powder keg under normal circumstances. When the sh!t goes down, people tribe up. This increases the chances of racial conflict. Race war benefits the globalists. That’s why they push it.
Democratic Party-backed Black Reparations is an example of divide-and-conquer race manipulation. Like “Holocaust” Reparations, Black Reparations is a scam. The hundreds of billions of dollars earmarked for “Holocaust” survivors ended up in Rothschild Zionist coffers. The same thing would happen with Black Reparations, with a small percentage of the proceeds going to high-level House African Americans, as seen with the fortunes amassed by upper echelon #BLM House AAs. Aside from being a Rothschild Zionist financial windfall, Black Reparations pits the White guy facing eviction against the Black guy facing eviction- deleting two potential enemies with one profitable maneuver. A smart move.
Black vs White vs Hispanic vs Other is a nowhere trip. After the carnage, a third party (not the political kind) would swoop in and pick up the pieces. Run the race war program at your own peril.
I think a much better solution is to peacefully separate into a coalition of ethno and multicultural autonomous states that operate within their territorial borders, i.e., no foreign or domestic military adventures. From my viewpoint, win-win cooperation beats the Nietzsche win-lose system. (You’re living under financialized Nietzscheism. George Soros is the Übermensch). Scientist Buckminster Fuller championed “win-win” in his book, “Operating Manual For Spaceship Earth.” China is attempting it today. Nothing good is possible until the US Anglo-Zionist Empire collapses and Rothschild Zionism is defeated.
An excellent analysis of elite-managed working class vs working class conflicts came from Hermann Göring after his capture by the Allies:
“Why of course the people don’t want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”
Göring is an interesting historical figure. He came from an aristocratic family. His parents had an open marriage. His mother took young Göring to live with her in the castle of her wealthy sociopathic Jewish lover, Dr. Hermann Ritter von Epenstein. By all accounts, Göring and the doctor got on quite well. Göring’s father spent much of his time in Africa. Maybe Göring’s dad was into Black chicks. Travelers to tropical second and third-world countries have probably experienced numerous sightings of the middle-aged German guy with beer belly and speedos strolling down the beach hand-in-hand with his little brown rent-a-honey.
In WWI Göring saw action as an ace fighter pilot and received the Iron Cross and Pour le Mérite. During WW2 Göring looted Europe’s art treasure houses and precious jewels for his collection. Answering a National Socialist think tank memo that predicted 25-30 million Russians would starve to death under German occupation/colonization, his paraphrased response was- “No problem dude.”
Göring was able to function as Germany’s second-in-command while a full-blown morphine addict. If that’s not an argument for the decriminalization of drugs, I don’t know what is.
When the Americans gave IQ tests to their National Socialist big-wig prisoners, Göring scored highest. In the end, he cheated the hangman by ingesting smuggled poison. Göring wasn’t “gangsta”- he was “gangster.” In my opinion, he was also a sociopath. And a predator—in the real deal sense of the word.
As I stated earlier, “interesting times” activates predators. A US civil war 2.0 would certainly accomplish that. To take artistic license with a “Forrest Gump” line—Predators are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.
If Providence ever sends America a deliverer to break the chains of international finance, he won’t be a reality TV star, brain-chipping oligarch, or celebrity entertainer. Nor will he hail from the hallowed halls of Harvard, Princeton, or Yale. He will be a “man of the people.” A firebreather who turns human heads into bowling balls. Can’t wait to meet him.
The globalists understand the uncontrollable nature of predators and are working diligently to build their own super predator—the AI “Beast.” Connected to the “internet of things,” even the fiercest predator can be kept in check through nanotechnology vaccines and chip implants that control “buying and selling” along with roving algorithms that delete problem programs.
America has reached such a state of hell, a civil war gone sideways might be the last best option. As hard as it is to believe, the alternative could be worse.
