It’s Time for a National Divorce, by Mark Metz

We flat out don’t like each other, in fact, it’s not too strong to say we hate each other. Then why do we insist on living in the same country? From Mark Metz at mises.org:

Both spouses have become abusive, verbally and physically. Exchanging blows left and right, both literally and metaphorically speaking. There’s no common ground to be found, and even if there were, at this point neither side is interested in entertaining it. And yet a narrative continues to be pushed by politicians on both sides: unity. We must find a way to unify, they say. Biden seems to preach it every single day. “We’re going to be unified whether you deplorables like it or not” is my interpretation of his speeches.

And as for our present time, what kind of unity does Biden plan to force upon those who didn’t vote for him? Will everyone feel unified when he attempts to forcefully remove guns from millions of responsible citizens? That certainly doesn’t sound like unity. This rhetoric is a farce, one that’ll be eloquently (or not so much, since it’s coming from Biden) stated now but forgotten later on.

Conversely, we’re about to embark on four years of Republicans singing the same song Democrats sang during these last four years: “he’s not my president.” Biden will be just as illegitimate in their eyes as Trump was in the Left’s eyes

There is no unity to be found here. The polarization reached a peak on January 6, but more peaks are inevitable. Perhaps this year, perhaps down the road. But they’re going to happen, and they could be much worse in the future.
