    Would you say we are already in a soft civil war?

    What do you think?

    Edit

    Someone asked to define soft civil war

    Soft civil war = destruction of the enemy with no bullets.

    Examples...doxing to get people fired, ostracized, bullying, the 16 yo vote to favor dems, destruction of the EC to favor dems, open borders to favor dems, buying votes, boycotts to destroy companies and harm states.

    I would say there are tens of millions of people between the ages of 18-35 who have been conditioned to expect a automated deposit in their checking account, or their dead grandma's checking account for which they are cosigners too, who don't give a crap and just let the US Treasury keep making deposits into.

    Cutting this fraud would be huge to the deficit.

    If we were in a civil war. It would be a war of the corporations against the people of this nation. Then perhaps we are. If we begin to stand up to the corporations then perhaps that is the sign that we are. Signs such as Ocasio Cortez and so on.

    Corporations grow rich largely because they produce goods and services people value. Why would people bite the hand that feeds it?

    The enemy is ever-centralizing government.

    I voted no before I read the next post with the definition of soft civil war. With that, I would say yes.

    that is such bullcrap. In this day and age, whether you are black, white, yellow, orange, green, or purple...you've had every privilege and advantage to succeed. The only difference at this point is whether you embraced the 'hand up', or pissed on the 'hand up.'

    Business want workers, sorry ass 'victims' who skipped school, didn't study, did drugs, and make babies they don't support don't want a job. They want to be victims on welfare.

    Good grief, a more clueless person I've never encountered.

    Progressivism, ideas so good, they have to be mandatory

    It would have to be a "soft" Civil War as most libs and millenials are too lazy to fight

    A soft civil war? Would you say that taking responsibility is a 'soft' responsibility. If so, what does that even mean?
