A "wargame designer" named Mike Selinker has decided that his professional expertise qualifies him to outline four different kinds of civil war, one of which we will almost certainly face rather shortly, the way he sees it:
We're facing a civil war (Selinker says):
Up until yesterday, I wasn’t thinking a civil war was probable. But then Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died. With her likely went the last chance the 2020 election will end peacefully.
Scenario #1: A Biden blowout - Comparable war: The American Civil War
Scenario #2: A close Biden win - Comparable war: The Russian Revolution
Scenario #3: A contested result - Comparable war: The Irish War of Independence
Scenario #4: A Trump win - Comparable war: The Rwandan Civil War
How do we not give in, or see violence as the inevitable result of all the information and actions on the part of Trumpism that we know about at this point? Is there some kind of inevitability to what’s going on?
