Postcards From The Decline And Fall Reply

Dreher references a reader who draws an analogy between current events and the Spanish Civil War. It’s always possible to make comparisons between historical parallels that have some relation to each other, but I tend to think a “Civil War Two” in the USA would be more like Lebanon in the 70s and 80s, or Yugoslavia in the 90s, than Spain in the 1930s.

From today’s mailbag:

Your blog posts are the only thing keeping me sane right now. Even after everything that’s happened, I don’t think people truly grasp the danger zone the country’s entered. There’s no “going back to normal.” We may not see another raid on the Capitol, but we’re definitely going to see an intensification of political violence in this country.
