America: It’s Time to Break Up

“In the 20th century, Americans had national unity. This unity was achieved through centralized media and government schools inculcating civic narratives. Having a couple of enemies never hurt, and this wasn’t so much a conspiracy as a sign of the times. In those days, you could find common ground in the Constitution or the fight against Nazis or Commies. Those days are over. … It’s time to break up. There are all manner of ways to do it — from muscular subsidiarity to separatism. But the core message is clear: Trouble is coming if we don’t find a way more loosely to self-organize according to different conceptions of the good. And we must be prepared for it: mind, body, and system.” (11/16/23)
