Given the economic conditions across the pond with food riots already starting in Spain and other hard hit lands it just a matter of time until they jump the pond. We no longer have an American economy; we have a global financial system. Every country is tied together with the chains of the elite banking system. A system of complete control lorded over the workers of the world. You, me, and others work for pieces of paper “they” tell you are worth something, and even if they had any value, you give them right back to the banks from which they came.

Coming Food Riots

In response to recent articles in mainstream military journals
discussing the use of the U.S. Army to quell insurrections on American
soil, I offer an alternate vision of the future. Instead of a small
town in the South as the flash point, picture instead a score of U.S.
cities in the thrall of riots greater than those experienced in Los
Angeles in 1965 (Watts), multiple cities in 1968 (MLK assassination),
and Los Angeles again in 1992 (Rodney King). New Yorkers can imagine
the 1977 blackout looting or the 1991 Crown Heights disturbance. In
fact, the proximate spark of the next round of major riots in America
could be any from a long list cribbed from our history.

We have seen them all before, and we shall see them all again as
history rhymes along regardless of the century or the generation of
humankind nominally in control of events. But the next time we are
visited by widespread, large-scale urban riots, a dangerous new
escalation may be triggered by a new vulnerability: It’s estimated
that the average American home has less than two weeks of food on
hand. In poor minority areas, it may be much less. What if a cascading
economic crisis, even a temporary one, leads to millions of EBT
(electronic benefit transfer) cards flashing nothing but zeroes? Or if
the government’s refusal to reimburse them causes supermarket chains
to stop accepting them for payment? The government can order the
supermarkets to honor the cards, but history’s verdict is clear: If
suppliers are paid only with worthless scrip or blinking digits, the
food will stop.


In my scenario, the initial riots begin spontaneously across affected
urban areas, as SNAP (supplemental nutrition assistance program) and
other government welfare recipients learn that their EBT cards no
longer function. This sudden revelation will cause widespread anger,
which will quickly lead to the flash-mob looting of local supermarkets
and other businesses. The media will initially portray these “food
riots” as at least partly justifiable. Sadly, millions of Americans
have been made largely, or even entirely, dependent on government
wealth transfer payments to put food on their tables.

A new social contract has been created, where bread and circuses buy a
measure of peace in our minority-populated urban zones. In the era of
ubiquitous big-screen cable television, the internet and smart phones,
the circus part of the equation is never in doubt as long as the
electricity flows. But the bread is highly problematic. Food must be
delivered the old-fashioned way: physically. Any disruption in the
normal functioning of the EBT system will lead to food riots with a
speed that is astonishing. This will inevitably happen when our
unsustainable, debt-fueled binge party finally stops, and the music is
over. Now that the delivery of free or heavily subsidized food is
perceived by tens of millions of Americans to be a basic human right,
the cutoff of “their” food money will cause an immediate explosion of
rage. When the hunger begins to bite, supermarkets, shops and
restaurants will be looted, and initially the media will not condemn
the looting. Unfortunately, this initial violence will only be the
start of a dangerous escalation.

The ransacked supermarkets, convenience stores, ATMs and gas stations
will not be restocked during this period due to the precarious
security situation. A single truck loaded with food or gasoline would
be perceived to be a Fort Knox on wheels and subject to immediate
attack unless heavily protected by powerfully armed security forces,
but such forces will not be available during this chaotic period.
Under those conditions, resupply to the urban areas cannot and will
not take place. The downward spiral of social and economic dysfunction
will therefore both accelerate and spread from city to city. These
delays, in turn, will lead to more riots with the constant underlying
demand that hungry people be fed, one way or another.

Catch-22, anyone? When these demands do not bring the desired outcome,
the participants will ratchet up the violence, hoping to force action
by the feckless state and national governments.

The “food riots” will be a grass-roots movement of the moment born out
of hunger and desperation. It will not be dependent upon leaders or an
underlying organization, although they could certainly add to the
sauce. Existing cell phone technology provides all the organization a
flash mob needs. Most of the mobs will consist of minority urban
youths, termed MUYs in the rest of this essay. Which minority doesn’t
matter; each urban locale will come with its own unique multi-ethnic

Some locales will divide upon religious or political lines, but they
will not be the dominant factors contributing to conflict. In the
American context, the divisions will primarily have an ethnic or
racial context, largely because that makes it easy to sort out the
sides at a safe distance. No need to check religious or political
affiliation at a hundred yards when The Other is of a different color.

We Americans are all about doing things the easy way, so, sadly,
visible racial and ethnic features will form the predominant lines of

Would that it were not so, but reality is reality, even when it’s is a bitch.

Especially then.


In order to highlight their grievances and escalate their demands for
an immediate resumption of government benefits, the MUY flash mobs
will next move their activities to the borders of their ethnic
enclaves. They will concentrate on major intersections and highway
interchanges where non-MUY suburban commuters must make daily passage
to and from what forms of employment still exist. People making a
living will still be using those roads to get to where they earn their
daily bread.

The results of these clashes will frequently resemble the intersection
of Florence and Normandie during the Rodney King riots in 1992, where
Reginald Denny was pulled out of his truck’s cab and beaten nearly to
death with a cinder block. If you don’t remember it, watch it on
Youtube. Then imagine that scene with the mob-making accelerant of
texting and other social media technology added to stoke the fires.
Instead of a few dozen thugs terrorizing the ambushed intersections,
in minutes there will be hundreds.

Rioters will throw debris such as shopping carts and trash cans into
the intersection, causing the more timid drivers to pause. The mobs
will swarm the lines of trapped cars once they have stopped. Traffic
will be forced into gridlock for blocks in all directions. Drivers and
passengers of the wrong ethnic persuasions will be pulled from their
vehicles to be beaten, robbed, and in some cases raped and/or killed.
It will be hyper-violent and overtly racial mob behavior, on a massive
and undeniable basis.

Some of those trapped in their cars will try to drive out of the area,
inevitably knocking down MUY pedestrians and being trapped by even
more outraged MUYs. The commuters will be dragged out of their cars
and kicked or beaten to death. Other suburban commuters will try to
shoot their way out of the lines of stopped cars, and they will meet
the same grim fate once they run out of bullets and room to escape.

The mob will be armed with everything from knives, clubs and pistols
to AK-47s. A bloodbath will result. These unlucky drivers and their
passengers will suffer horribly, and some of their deaths will be
captured on traffic web cameras. Later, these terrible scenes will be
released or leaked by sympathetic government insiders and shown by the
alternative media, which continue to expand as the traditional media
become increasingly irrelevant.

Implausible, you insist?

This grim tableau is my analysis of age-old human behavior patterns,
adding flash mobs and 2012 levels of racial anger to the old recipe.
Early-teenage MUYs today are frequently playing “The Knockout Game” on
full bellies, just for kicks, and proudly uploading the videos. They
and their older peers can be expected to do far worse when hunger and
the fear of starvation enter their physical, mental, and emotional
equations. The blame for their hunger will be turned outward against
the greater society, and will be vented at first hand against any
non-MUY who falls into their grasp while they are in the thrall of mob
hysteria. These episodes of mass psychology we will refer to as “flash
mob riots”, “wilding”, or some other new name.


To gear up for even a single “Florence and Normandie on steroids”
flash mob street riot, city police departments will require an hour or
longer to stage their SWAT teams and riot squads in position to react.
Ordinary patrol cars in small numbers will not venture anywhere near
such roiling masses of hysterical rioters, not even to perform
rescues. Those citizens trapped in their cars cannot expect timely
assistance from local or state authorities.

Even in the first days of widespread riots, when the police forces are
well rested, it might take several hours to mount a response
sufficient to quell the disturbance and restore order to even one
major street intersection riot. In the meantime, scores of innocent
commuters will have been attacked, with many of them injured or killed
and left at the scene. It will be a law enforcement nightmare to quell
the disturbance, mop up lingering rioters, restore security, and bring
medical attention to the living and get medical examiners to the dead.
And each jurisdiction will face potentially dozens of such scenes,
thanks to the ability for MUYs to cross-communicate at will using
their wireless devices.

The far more difficult challenge for the police is that by the time
they are suited in riot gear, armed and geared up to sweep the
intersection, it will probably be empty of rioters. The police, with
their major riot squad reaction times measured in hours, will be
fighting flash mobs that materialize, cause mayhem, and evaporate in
only fractions of hours. This rapid cycle time is a clear lesson taken
from massive riots by immigrant French Muslim MUYs in their own
religious enclaves and bordering areas.

The American flash mob riot will exist almost entirely inside the law
enforcement OODA (observe, orient, decide, act) loop. In other words,
the rioters will have a much quicker reaction time than the police.
Until fairly recently, superior police communications meant that they
could use their radio networks as a force multiplier. With their
networking advantage and cohesive reactions both within a department
and among cooperating local agencies, police could act as shepherds
guiding or dispersing a wayward stampeding flock.

Today, the mob has the greater advantage, immediately spreading word
of every police preparation by text and Tweet, even in advance of the
police movement. Attempts by the authorities to stop the flash mobs by
blocking and jamming wireless transmissions will have limited success.

It is at this point that the situation spirals out of control.

The enraged mobs in urban America will soon recognize that their
spontaneous street riots cannot be stopped by the police, and then
they will grow truly fearsome. For the police, it will be a losing
game of Whack-a-Mole, with riots breaking out and dispersing at a
speed they cannot hope to match. The violence will spread to
previously unaffected cities as an awareness of law enforcement
impotence is spread by television and social media. After a few days,
the police forces will be exhausted and demoralized. As the violence
intensifies and spreads, and in the absence of any viable security
arrangements, supermarkets and other stores will not be restocked,
leaving the MUYs even more desperate and angry than before. The
increasing desperation born of worsening hunger will refuel the
escalating spiral of violence.

Nor will violent conflict be only between the inhabitants of the urban
areas and the suburbs. The international record of conflict in
tri-ethnic cities is grim, making the old bi-racial dichotomy formerly
seen in America seem stable by comparison. In tri-ethnic cities the
perceived balance of power is constantly shifting, with each side in
turn feeling outnumbered and outmuscled. Temporary truces, betrayals
and new alliances follow in rapid succession, removing any lingering
sense of social cohesion.

The former Yugoslavia, with its Catholic, Orthodox and Muslim
divisions, comes starkly to mind. The Lebanese Civil War between the
Christians, Sunnis, Shiites and Druze raged across Beirut (at one time
known as “The Paris of the Middle East”) for fifteen brutal years.
Once a city turns on itself and becomes a runaway engine of
self-destruction, it can be difficult to impossible to switch off the
process and return to normal pre-conflict life. It’s not inconceivable
that the United States could produce a dozen Sarajevos or Beiruts,
primarily across racial instead of religious divides.

Vehicle traffic by non-minority suburban commuters through adjoining
minority areas will virtually halt, wrecking what is left of the local
economy. Businesses will not open because employees will not be able
to travel to work safely. Businesses in minority areas, needless to
say, will be looted. “Gentrified” enclaves of affluent suburbanites
within or near the urban zones will suffer repeated attacks, until
their inhabitants flee.

Radically disaffected minorities will hold critical infrastructure
corridors through their areas hostage against the greater society.
Highways, railroad tracks, pipe and power lines will all be under
constant threat, or may be cut in planned or unplanned acts of raging
against “the system.” As long as security in the urban areas cannot be
restored, these corridors will be under threat. Even airports will not
be immune. Many of them have been absorbed into urban areas, and
aircraft will come under sporadic fire while taking off and landing.

In the absence of fresh targets of value blundering into their areas,
and still out of food, MUYs will begin to forage beyond their
desolated home neighborhoods and into suburban borderlands. “Safe”
supermarkets and other stores will be robbed in brazen commando-like
gang attacks. Carjackings and home invasions will proliferate madly.
As I have discussed in my essay “The Civil War Two Cube,” so-called
“transitional” and mixed-ethnic areas will suffer the worst violence.
These neighborhoods will become utterly chaotic killing zones, with
little or no help coming from the overstretched police, who will be
trying to rest up for their next shift on riot squad duty, if they
have not already deserted their posts to take care of their own


In the absence of an effective official police response to the
exploding levels of violence, suburbanites will first hastily form
self-defense forces to guard their neighborhoods—especially ones
located near ethnic borders. These ubiquitous neighborhood armed
defense teams will often have a deep and talented bench from which to
select members, and they will not lack for volunteers.

Since 9-11, hundreds of thousands of young men (and more than a few
women) have acquired graduate-level educations in various aspects of
urban warfare. In the Middle East these troops were frequently tasked
with restoring order to urban areas exploding in internecine strife.
Today these former military men and women understand better than
anyone the life-or-death difference between being armed and organized
versus unarmed and disorganized.

Hundreds of thousands if not millions of veterans currently own rifles
strikingly similar to those they carried in the armed forces, lacking
only the full-automatic selector switch. Their brothers, sisters,
parents, friends, and neighbors who did not serve in the military are
often just as familiar with the weapons, if not the tactics. Today the
AR-pattern rifle (the semi-automatic civilian version of the familiar
full-auto-capable M-16 or M-4) is the most popular model of rifle in
America, with millions sold in the past decade. Virtually all of them
produced in the past decade have abandoned the old M-16′s signature
“carrying handle” rear iron sight for a standardized sight mounting
rail, meaning that virtually every AR sold today can be easily
equipped with an efficient optical sight. Firing the high-velocity
5.56×45 mm cartridge and mounted with a four-power tactical sight, a
typical AR rifle can shoot two-inch groups at one hundred yards when
fired from a steady bench rest. That translates to shooting eight- to
ten-inch groups at four hundred yards.

Four hundred yards is a long walk. Pace it off on a straight road, and
observe how tiny somebody appears at that distance. Yet a typical AR
rifle, like those currently owned by millions of American citizens,
can hit a man-sized target at that range very easily, given a stable
firing platform and a moderate level of shooting ability.

And there are a far greater number of scoped bolt-action hunting
rifles in private hands in the United States. Keep this number in
mind: based on deer stamps sold, approximately twenty million
Americans venture into the woods every fall armed with such rifles,
fully intending to shoot and kill a two-hundred-pound mammal. Millions
of these scoped bolt-action deer rifles are quite capable of hitting a
man-sized target at ranges out to and even beyond a thousand yards, or
nearly three-fifths of a mile. In that context, the 500-yard effective
range of the average semi-auto AR-pattern rifle is not at all

So, we have millions of men and women with military training, owning
rifles similar to the ones they used in combat operations overseas
from Vietnam to Afghanistan. Many of these Soldiers and Marines have
special operations training. They are former warriors with experience
at conducting irregular warfare and counter-terrorism operations in
dangerous urban environments. They are the opposite of unthinking
robots: their greatest military talent is looking outside the box for
new solutions. They always seek to “over-match” their enemies, using
their own advantages as force multipliers while diminishing or
concealing their weaknesses. These military veterans are also ready,
willing and able to pass on their experience and training to
interested students in their civilian circles.

Let’s return to our hypothetical Florence and Normandie intersection,
but this time with hundreds of rioters per city block, instead of mere
dozens. Among the mobs are thugs armed with pistols and perhaps even
AK-47s equipped with standard iron sights, and except in rare cases,
these rifles have never been “zeroed in” on a target range. In other
words, past a medium distance of fifty to a hundred yards, these MUY
shooters will have little idea where their fired bullets will
strike—nor will they care. Typically, most of the rioters armed with a
pistol, shotgun or an iron-sighted rifle could not hit a mailbox at a
hundred yards unless by luck. Inside that distance, any non-MUY could
be at immediate risk of brutal death at the hands of an enraged mob,
but beyond that range, the mob will pose much less danger.

Taking this imbalance in effective ranges of the firearms most likely
to be available to both sides, certain tactical responses are sure to
arise, and ranking near the top will be the one described next.


The sniper ambush will predictably be used as a counter to rampaging
mobs armed only with short- to medium-range weapons. This extremely
deadly trick was developed by our war fighters in Iraq and
Afghanistan, taking advantage of the significant effective range and
firepower of our scoped 5.56mm rifles. Tactics such as the sniper
ambush may not be seen early in the civil disorder, but they will
surely arise after a steady progression of atrocities attributed to
rampaging MUYs.

Street intersection flash mob riots will not be the only type of
violence exploding during periods of civil disorder. As mentioned
earlier, the number and ferocity of home invasions will skyrocket, and
they will be very hard to defend against. Neighborhood self-defense
forces will be able to protect a group of homes if they are located on
cul-de-sacs or in defensible subdivisions with limited entrances,
turning them overnight into fortified gated communities. Individual
homes and apartment buildings located in open grid-pattern
neighborhoods with outside access from many directions will be much
more difficult to defend, and the home invasions will continue.

Carjacking and other forms of armed robbery will proliferate to
previously unimagined levels, leading to a total loss of confidence in
the government’s ability to provide security across all social lines.
Stray bullets striking pedestrians or penetrating houses will take a
frightening toll, even in areas previously considered to be safe. The
police will be exhausted by constant riot-squad duty, and will not
even respond to reports of mere individual acts of violent
criminality. They will simply be overwhelmed, and will be forced to
triage their responses. The wealthy, powerful and politically
well-connected will demand the lion’s share of remaining police
resources, further diminishing the safety of average Americans.

In that context, neighborhood self-defense forces will form the
nucleus of the armed vigilante direct action groups which will spring
up next in the progression. Suburban anger will continue to build
against the MUYs, who are perceived to be the originators of the home
invasions and gang-level armed looting raids. Survivors of street
ambushes, carjackings and home invasions will tell blood-curdling
tales and show horrific scars.

The neighborhood defense teams will evolve into proactive suburban
armed vigilante groups (SAVs) out of a desire to preemptively take the
violence to their perceived enemies, instead of passively waiting for
the next home invasion or carjacking. The SAV teams will consist of
the more aggressive and gung-ho members of the self-defense forces,
who met and compared notes. Often they will be young men with recent
combat experience in the armed forces, who will apply their military
training to the new situation. Major intersections and highway
interchanges where ambush riots have previously occurred will be among
the SAV targets. The SAV reaction times will be measured in minutes,
compared to the hours required by major police department SWAT teams
and riot squads.


When word is received that a flash mob is forming at one of their
pre-reconnoitered intersections or highway interchanges, the SAV team
will assemble. Sometimes cooperating police will pass tactical intel
to their civilian friends on the outside. Some clever individuals will
have exploited their technical know-how and military experience to
build real-time intel collection tools, such as private UAVs. Police
will have access to urban security camera footage showing MUYs moving
barricade materials into position—a normal prerequisite to a flash mob
riot intended to stop traffic. Tip-offs to the vigilantes will be
common, and where the networks are still functioning, citizens may
still be able to access some video feeds. Sometimes, police will even
join the SAV teams, incognito and off-duty, blurring the teams into
so-called “death squads.”

The operation I will describe (and it’s only one of dozens that will
be tried) uses two ordinary pickup trucks and eight fighters. Two
riflemen are lying prone in the back of each truck, facing rearward,
with removable canvas covers concealing their presence. Their
semi-automatic, scoped rifles are supported at their front ends on
bipods for very accurate shooting. A row of protective sandbags a foot
high is between them and the raised tailgate.

In the cab are a driver and a spotter in the passenger seat who also
serves as the vehicle’s 360-degree security. The two trucks don’t ever
appear on the same stretch of road, but coordinate their movements
using one-word brevity codes over small FRS walkie-talkie radios. Each
truck has a series of predetermined elevated locations where the
intersection in question will lie between 200 and 500 yards away. Each
truck is totally nondescript and forgettable, the only detail perhaps
being the non-MUY ethnicity of the suburbanite driver and spotter
driving relatively near to a riot in progress.

By the time the two SAV pickup trucks arrive at their firing positions
on different streets and oriented ninety degrees to one another, the
flash mob riot is in full swing. A hundred or more of the rampaging
youths are posturing and throwing debris into traffic in order to
intimidate some cars into stopping. The riflemen in the backs of the
pickups are waiting for this moment and know what to expect, trusting
their spotters and drivers to give them a good firing lane. The
spotters in each truck issue a code word on their radios when they are
in final position. The tailgates are swung down, and the leader among
the riflemen initiates the firing. All-around security is provided by
the driver and spotter.

Lying prone and using their bipods for support, the shooters have five
to ten degrees of pan or traverse across the entire intersection.
Individual rioters are clearly visible in the shooters’ magnified
optical scopes. Each of the four snipers has a plan to shoot from the
outside of the mob toward the middle, driving participants into a
panicked mass. The left-side shooters start on the left side and work
to the middle, engaging targets with rapid fire, about one aimed shot
per two seconds. Since the two trucks are set at ninety degrees to one
another, very complete coverage will be obtained, even among and
between the stopped vehicles.

The result is a turkey shoot. One magazine of thirty aimed shots per
rifle is expended in under a minute, a coded cease-fire is called on
the walkie-talkies, and the trucks drive away at the speed limit. The
canvas covering the truck beds contains the shooters’ spent brass. If
the trucks are attacked from medium or close range, the canvas can be
thrown back and the two snipers with their semi-automatic rifles or
carbines will add their firepower to that of the driver and spotter.

Back at the intersection, complete panic breaks out among the rioters
as a great number of bullets have landed in human flesh. Over a score
have been killed outright, and many more scream in pain for medical
attention they will not receive in time. The sniper ambush stops the
flash mob cold in its tracks as the uninjured flee in terror, leaving
their erstwhile comrades back on the ground bleeding. The commuters
trapped in their vehicles may have an opportunity to escape.

This type of sniper ambush and a hundred variations on the theme will
finally accomplish what the police could not: put an end to mobs of
violent rioters making the cities through-streets and highways
impassible killing zones. Would-be rioters will soon understand it to
be suicidal to cluster in easily visible groups and engage in mob
violence, as the immediate response could come at any time in the form
of aimed fire from hundreds of yards away. Even one rifleman with a
scoped semi-auto can break up a medium-sized riot.

Many citizens will take to carrying rifles and carbines in their
vehicles, along with their pistols, so that if their cars are trapped
in an ambush they will have a chance to fight their way out. If their
vehicle is stopped outside the immediate area of the flash mob, they
will be able to direct accurate fire at the rioters from a few hundred
yards away. Inside the fatal hundred-yard radius, unlucky suburbanite
drivers and passengers pulled from their cars will still be brutally
violated, but the occurrences of large mob-driven street ambushes will
be much less frequent once long-range retaliation becomes a frequent


Where they will be unable to respond swiftly or effectively to the
outbreaks of street riots by MUY flash mobs, the police and federal
agents will respond vigorously to the deadly but smaller vigilante
attacks. These sniper ambushes and other SAV attacks will be called
acts of domestic terrorism and mass murder by government officials and
the mainstream media. A nearly seamless web of urban and suburban
street cameras will reveal some of the SAV teams by their vehicles,
facial recognition programs, and other technical means. Some early
arrests will be made, but the vigilantes will adapt to increasing law
enforcement pressure against them by becoming cleverer about their
camouflage, most often using stolen cars and false uniforms and masks
during their direct-action missions. Observe Mexico today for ideas on
how this type of dirty war is fought.

Eventually, the U.S. Army itself might be called upon to put out all
the social firestorms in our cities, restore order and security,
pacify the angry masses, feed the starving millions, get vital
infrastructure operating again, and do it all at once in a dozen
American Beiruts, Sarajevos and Mogadishus.

Good luck to them, I say.

A few hundred “Active IRA” tied down thousands of British troops in
one corner of a small island for decades. The same ratios have served
the Taliban well over the past decade while fighting against the
combined might of NATO. Set aside for a moment the angry starving
millions trapped in the urban areas, and the dire security issues
arising thereof. Just to consider the official reaction to vigilantism
separately, it’s unlikely that any conceivable combinations of local
and state police, federal law enforcement, National Guard or
active-duty Army actions could neutralize or eliminate tens of
thousands of former special operations troops intent on providing
their own form of security. Millions of Americans are already far
better armed and trained than a few hundred IRA or Taliban ever were.
And the police and Army would not be operating from secure fire bases,
their families living in total safety thousands of miles away in a
secure rear area. In this scenario, there is no rear area, and every
family member, anywhere, would be at perpetual risk of reprisal
actions by any of the warring sides.

In this hyper-dangerous environment, new laws forbidding the carrying
of firearms in vehicles would be ignored as the illegitimate diktat of
dictatorship, just when the Second Amendment is needed more than ever.
Police or military conducting searches for firearms at checkpoints
would themselves become targets of vigilante snipers. Serving on
anti-firearms duty would be seen as nothing but pure treason by
millions of Americans who took the oath to defend the Constitution,
including the Bill of Rights. Politicians who did not act in the
security interest of their local constituents as a result of political
correctness or other reasons would also be targeted.

A festering race war with police and the military in the middle taking
fire from both sides could last for many years, turning many American
cities into a living hell. Remember history: when the British Army
landed in Northern Ireland in 1969, they were greeted with flowers and
applause from the Catholics. The Tommys were welcomed as peacekeepers
who would protect them from Protestant violence. That soon changed.
Likewise with our tragic misadventure in Lebanon back in 1982 and
1983. Well-intended referees often find themselves taking fire from
all sides. It’s as predictable as tomorrow’s sunrise. Why would it be
any different when the U.S. Army is sent to Los Angeles, Chicago or
Philadelphia to break apart warring ethnic factions?

For a long time after these events, it will be impossible for the
warring ethnic groups to live together or even to mingle peacefully.
Too much rage and hatred will have been built up on all sides of our
many American multi-ethnic fault lines. The new wounds will be raw and
painful for many years to come, as they were in the South for long
after the Civil War. The fracturing of the urban areas, divided by
no-man’s-lands, will also hinder economic redevelopment for many years
because the critical infrastructure corridors will remain insecure.

Eventually, high concrete “Peace Walls” like those in Belfast,
Northern Ireland, will be installed where the different ethnic groups
live in close proximity. That is, if recovery to sane and civilized
norms of behavior are ever regained in our lifetimes and we don’t
slide into a new Dark Age, a stern and permanent tyranny, warlordism,
anarchy, or any other dire outcome.

Dark Ages can last for centuries, after sinking civilizations in a
vicious, downward vortex. “When the music’s over, turn out the
lights,” to quote Jim Morrison of The Doors. Sometimes the lights stay
out for a long time. Sometimes civilization itself is lost. Millions
of EBT cards flashing zeroes might be the signal event of a terrible

It is a frightening thing to crystallize the possible outbreak of mass
starvation and racial warfare into words, so that the mind is forced
to confront agonizingly painful scenarios. It is much easier to avert
one’s eyes and mind from the ugliness with politically correct Kumbaya
bromides. In this grim essay, I am describing a brutal situation of
ethnic civil war not differing much from the worst scenes from recent
history in Rwanda, South Africa, Mexico, Bosnia, Iraq, and many other
places that have experienced varying types and degrees of societal
collapse. We all deplore the conditions that might drive us toward
such a hellish outcome, and we should work unceasingly to return
America to the path of true brotherhood, peace and prosperity. Race
hustlers of every stripe should be condemned.

Most of us wish we could turn back the calendar to Norman Rockwell’s
America. But we cannot, for that America is water long over the dam
and gone from our sight, if not from our memories. John Adams said,
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It
is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” If that is true,
judging by current and even accelerating cultural shifts, we might
already have passed the point of no return.

The prudent American will trim his sails accordingly.

As I said at the top I wasn’t sure who wrote this but it may be this guy.
