Historically, civil wars are not known to be announced - or even identified until things get bloody for a while. It's even been argued the American Revolution was this nation''s first civil war.

The "some" of "thousands" that Lois Beckett alludes to in her piece is hardly cause for chest-thumping, or even a pitting. The progressive left and religious right both prefer authoritarian solutions and laws when enforcing their ideals and mores on their opposition and a diverse society at large. Things could get a whole lot messier before people come to realize top down solutions are impractical, and often unsustainable.
