Canadian author Stephen Marche recently released the latest offering predicting the end of the American Republic. Marche’s “The Next Civil War” joins Richard Krietner’s “Break It Up” and David French’s “Divided We Fall.” The topic, while not new, is picking up steam.
Marche points out “the dream of disunion is far from a mere thought experiment. Serious people, more of them all the time, are imagining real scenarios, planning and organizing.”
Unmentioned in Marche’s book are the “white hats,” AKA “Q-Anons,” who argue that an American breakup is “exactly what the “Kabal” seeks. As “alt-right” reactionary Juan O’Savin explains, “the United States is at war with the CCP. We experienced both a cyber-attack and a biological attack at their hands. Well placed, corrupt politicians, on both sides of the aisle, allowed it to go without reproach.”
President Joe Biden’s “America last” policies lend credence to O’Savin’s assertion.
O’Savin’s “The Kid by the Side of the Road,” is a world history account, in magazine format, that details the story of the Illuminati. Corporate media members, Democrats, and most establishment Republicans dismiss it as “conspiracy theories.”
Marche cites a 2014 Reuters poll where “one in four” Americans, as a whole, supported a peaceful separation of states. Following Donald Trump’s election, “intellectuals on both sides have argued for an American divorce.”
The Federalist, from the right, stated that “we both now agree that living under the other side’s value system is wholly unacceptable.”
The New Republic, from the left, shared the sentiment: “Let’s face it guys: We’re done!”
The question becomes, “where would the border lines be drawn?” As Marche concedes, “small questions of daily life like pensions and passports are a major reason why Scottland and Quebec are not independent nations today.”
The monetary system would be impacted. Q-Anons talk of the coming “Global Currency Reset;” the world’s departure from our existing “fiat money” system in favor of a “gold-backed dollar.” Their “alliance” is made up of “Trump’s America,” Russia, India, Iraq and a China that dumps the CCP in favor of a Chinese Republic.
Most Economists remind that there isn’t sufficient gold to expedite. Yet, if all commodities are included, the objective becomes realistic.
In referencing Colin Woodward’s American Nations, Marche proposes four Americas: Cascadia, The Republic of Texas, The Republic of the United States and The United States. His reference to the “Republic of the United States” suggests that he believes that the Organic Act of 1871 did relinquish American sovereignty to the European Banking establishment.
Impossible? People forget that the United States was dead broke following the first Civil War! Abraham Lincoln’s Hampton Roads meeting with Confederate Vice President Alexander Stephens, February 1865, proposed two conditions: “Reunion and Emancipation.”
Republican Congressman Thadeus Stephens questioned Lincoln’s easy conditions. Lincoln retorted, “Who’s going to pay? The south’s economically devasted. Your proposal would result in bitterness between sections of the country that might last a century.” Lincoln later killed the Wade-Davis bill, making it clear that it was he and not the Congress who would set Reconstruction terms.
Sadly, Lincoln was assassinated. Vice President Andrew Johnson was unable to deal with a radical, revenge-minded Congress. His successor, Ulysses S. Grant proved to be a weak president, even referring to the president’s role as “an agent to Congress.” By 1871, the war debt had grown even larger. Grant allegedly made the deal with the bankers through an executive order. “The United States of America, Inc.,” was born.
Donald Trump supposedly canceled Grant’s executive order in 2018, with his own executive order. Once again, we were “the United States of America, the Republic.”
Most might consider all the aforementioned “poppycock” or “balderdash.” But it is true that the Civil War’s price tag was inconceivable. The money to pay for it had to come from somewhere! Trump and allies concluded that it has been paid for. And then some!
According to “NESARA-GESARA” activists, 82% of the planet’s wealth is currently in the hands of about “thirty (30) families, corporations, consortiums, cartels, etc.” The currency reset would effectively create the “greatest wealth redistribution in history.”
When discussing states going their separate way, it becomes part of the discussion. Most people who voted for Donald Trump genuinely believe that he won the election. Those who didn’t vote for Trump hold him in contempt for suggesting that the election was stolen. It is along these preferences that borders would be drawn.
Distrust in the corporate media is at an all-time high. A split would result in ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and other broadcast networks watching their universes shrink overnight! A new republic would lay claim to the broadcast frequencies! The media narrative would change immediately!
Marche’s map is laced with mostly smug, Canadian ignorance. He is correct in that it would be multiple countries. The borders could be drawn in accordance with Woodward’s American Nations map. Let’s start with the East.
- The six New England states would join Canada’s Atlantic provinces to form the nation of “New England.” The population would be comparable to Florida’s, its geographical size almost identical to Texas. Woodward called it “Yankeedom.”
- The only part of New England not joining this nation would be Connecticut’s Fairfield County which would remain with its “New Netherland” roots. Six New York counties, New Jersey, New Castle County Delaware, Washington, D.C., and five Maryland counties including Baltimore, would complete the map. The total land area would be about half the size of South Carolina, the population just north of 20 million.
- Maryland’s Eastern Shore would join four Southern Maryland counties and two Delaware counties to form the new state of “Chesapeake.” All are represented by Woodward’s nation, “Tidewater.” Five Western Maryland counties would join their “Greater Appalachia” counterpart, West Virginia.
- Pennsylvania and the remaining New York counties would join the Republic. The same would hold true for all of the South and Midwest, including Texas.
- Far Western states including Alaska would follow suit.
Here is where Marche may have misjudged his own country:
- Cascadia exists. However, it doesn’t include California! It does include British Columbia. The Cascadia that I foresee combines all of British Columbia, west of the 120th parallel of longitude, 25 Washington counties, and 21 Oregon counties. “Cascadia” would be the size of Texas and New Mexico combined, with 12 million residents, reflecting Woodward’s “Left Coast” nation.
- British Columbia, east of the 120th parallel would become part of Alberta, making its population comparable to South Carolina. Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta would join their “Far West” brothers to the south, as would the Canadian Territories of Yukon, Nunavut and the Northwest.
- Remaining would be the two largest Canadian provinces, Ontario and Quebec to decide their dispositions. It’s probable that both would form their own nations. Ontario has a population about the same as Pennsylvania with a land area the size of Texas and Montana combined. Quebec is roughly twice the size of Texas, with a population comparable to Ohio’s.
- Tim Draper’s 2017 “six Californias” would see South, Central, Jefferson and probably West California join the Republic. North and Silicon Valley, the most liberal parts of California, could either join Cascadia or go it alone. Hawaii might join them, stay with the Republic, declare independence or split. The eastern part of Washington and Oregon would become the state of Lincoln. Texas would become three states, Florida two. In all, the United States of America would continue to include 50 states.
States not joining the Republic would be released of military financial responsibility. They would be nevertheless protected by the Republic’s powerful land, sea, and air defenses. The Republic would retain its seat on the UN Security Council.
Economically, it would translate to a more workable arrangement. The Republic would resume its agricultural, industrial and energy dominance. The remaining nations could concentrate on Green Energy and Social Justice. All would be welcomed by the United Nations. Membership to NATO would be optional.
