The article is race blind, blind to the cities vs. everyone else situation of America and straightjacketed by the platform. The writer is not American, and it shows. His ignorance of how regions work, and even cultural differences within his supposed regions is laughable. One does not have to drive for long outside of Columbus, Cincinnati or other Midwestern states to hit acres and acres of farmland. Not every metropolitan area has the NYC layout. Regional infrastructure investments? Okay, so even in red states this will pit black run or heavy black cities vs. white suburbs. Let me know how the Feds side in those disputes. Voting results clearly showed that America is really the cities vs everyone else. The writer cannot clearly admit that. He is an immigrant, so I will pat him on the head for trying.
I have written extensively on break up. One needs founding myths and identities for new rituals for the people to engage in and to build social cohesion. It will help as the lowest common denominator for reaching all becomes sharper in smaller political units. More homogenous social units means no forced inclusion and a celebration of the people, not abstract ideas like 'muh freedom'.
We will see what Trump's immigration policies do to the social situation, but it is easy to see Texas, California, a Pacific NW (Cascadia could rope in Canada's BC I bet), Acela Corridor Land, Dixie, The Flyover Red Nation, and then a Rio Grande and desert based La Raza Land and a black ethnostate like my "Georgia Plan". It is easy to see all of those regions having founding myths they will celebrate with identities far stronger than the American identity of 2016 being peddled in our culture. We could de-SCALE our society.
Note that if blacks do go to the ethnostate for security and freedom from evil or meddling whites, all of those purple states flip red. Pennsylvania, Michigan and even Michigan come to mind. Red states go deep red. Do some states cede off parts to other regions? Hard to tell, but county authority and lines may be the next generation's cut points. Remember that every junking of the prior version of America gave way to a new order based on new splits.
A peaceful separation with formalized sorting and safe population exchanges is what is needed. You go be as commie as you want, just do it in your nation.
Last week I wrote on the progressive need for the nurture meme. They desperately need it to keep the wildly different coalition pieces together as it gives them cover for their transfer schemes as well as papering over differences. Weimerica Weekly discussed the changes to the political discourse and acceptable talk with this election. As the Left discusses electors going rogue, they suddenly trip the entire structure to mean that an unapproved candidate would not need 270 to win but possibly 275 or 290. Completely shatters the gentlemen's agreement. This system is ending.
This week I don't know what they will pick for the essay as I submitted a couple for them to choose from. Weimerica Weekly might be on travel or I might start the Obama recap and discussion podcasts.
