    We can't have a Civil War for re-unification, because we're not conducting war by gentlemen's agreements. There are no uniforms to distinguish combatants, and no prior arrangements for where the battles will be located. Wherever you go, the guy 10 feet away could be hard-core alt-right white nationalist militia, or he could be hard-core anarchist LGBT antifa, and either way, they might mistake you for being something else, and stick a shiv between your ribs.

    If there is a new Civil War, (I'm guessing here) it would likely more resemble prison gang culture, where you get power and protection from your gang, who are personally known to you as members. But at that point, civilization is simply shot to hell and we get another Middle Ages.

    Civil disobedience yes. Formal civil war, no. I'll step back and say yes, certain groups may denounce citizenship and pledge anarchy against this country, but blue vs grey, no.
    Urban flight, more suburbanites moving into the country has already been going on and it will continue as we already have a generation of thinking that cannot be reversed, and they are spawning the next generation.

    Give it up guys. There will be no Civil War. There will be no Anarchy or Chaos. We may see some rioting and folks burning down their own neighborhoods like they always no but major SHTF ain't gonna happen. That may be what the hard left wants to see. As soon as anything approaching armed citizens starts taking care of business happens you will see a Lil Phat Kim response to the hue and cry for law and order. And, indeed that is the way it should be. We are a nation of laws, and so we will remain.

    We are likely to see more targeting of authority figures. Politicians, police, etc. More liberals hunting republicans is highly likely.

    What we are seeing is similar to the 1960's in many demonstrations. Failure by law enforcement and campus/city authorities to "smash the mobs" will lead to new employment opportunities in rebuilding the campuses, not so much the cities. But nationally, I don't think the population in general has much desire to just get out there and "mix it up". Self-defense, for sure. But I'm not putting together a "demo/riot bag o' gear" so I can readily deploy to the scene of the next snowflake participation/Soros-funded activity. Nor do I know anyone else who is making such preparations.
