How to unite the increasingly divided United States
"If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand" (Mark 5:25).
And the United States is increasingly divided against itself.
In the past it was suggested by a few courageous, and martyred, future-thinking historians and psychologists (eg. Wilmot Robertson, Raymond Cattell) that the very thing tearing us apart could put us back together. That is, rather than continuing the hopeless task of trying to jam distinctly different people together in one multicultural place and then telling them to all get along, those natural differences could be championed in an ethnopluralism of ethnostates within the United States.
The constitutional separation of powers and states is already legally established and could gradually accommodate regions and states set aside for distinct ethnic groups and ethnostates, and protected by federalism.
This would mean going against the prevailing cultural Marxism and amoral globalism now in place in America, and there would be more courageous martyrs, but I see no better long-term way to unite our divided nation.
The populism now in vogue at least hints at this direction.
