Negative Social Mood + Diversity + Democracy = Civil War or Secession

Now that America is transitioning into pure identity politics, there is no more debate. There is only war between identity groups. Toss in negative social mood and it is a combustive situation.

Washington Examiner: Warning: 2018 political ‘civil war’ threatens, fueled by media
In two separate reports, the two opposites come to a similar conclusion that the nation and even families are terribly divided and that the media has played a big role in creating the split.

Daniels is well regarded as level-headed and has been dubbed the best university president in the nation. He has used his commencement addresses to push for openness and understanding, but this year he noted a shift to “tribalism,” where sides cluster in cliques.

“It’s no longer just a matter of Americans not knowing and understanding each other. We’ve seen these clusters deepen, and harden, until separation has led to anger, misunderstanding turned into hostility. At the individual level, it’s a formula for bitterness and negativity. For a self-governing people, it’s poison,” Daniels told his students this month.

Among the culprits he cited were biased media, the “anti-social media.” Said Daniels, “Our various modern media lead us to, and feed us from information sources that reinforce our existing biases. They put us in contact with other tribe members, but rarely those who see things differently. We’re starting to resemble ominously our primitive forebearers, trusting no one outside the tribe.”
This is the natural fracturing of a multinational state into multiple nations. There's no going back, there is no center to return to because the center existed within a homogeneous polity. When everyone is the same identity, the risk of identity is greatly diminished. When there are many identities, the odds of identity politics dominating rises to 100 percent certainty.

Der Spiegel: SPIEGEL Interview with Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew
"It's Stupid to be Afraid"

Mr. Lee: Why should I be against democracy? The British came here, never gave me democracy, except when they were about to leave. But I cannot run my system based on their rules. I have to amend it to fit my people's position. In multiracial societies, you don't vote in accordance with your economic interests and social interests, you vote in accordance with race and religion. Supposing I'd run their system here, Malays would vote for Muslims, Indians would vote for Indians, Chinese would vote for Chinese. I would have a constant clash in my Parliament which cannot be resolved because the Chinese majority would always overrule them. So I found a formula that changes that...
A united USA will either be authoritarian or it will not exist. This is the future the current establishment have given us. Their time is up because the post-1965 experiment is coming to an end, one way or another.
