Stochastic Violence is Not “Civil War”
Let’s be clear about the difference.
As I have been reporting for two years, the escalating violence in America is part of a broad strategy to undermine American democracy through “irregular warfare.” We are already in a political and psychological civil war as a result. But we have not tipped to a kinetic civil war — yet.
I’ve written a few articles recently criticizing the breathless coverage of “civil war” rhetoric online by people in the press after Trump’s beach house got raided.
Today, there was an act of stochastic terrorism at an FBI office in Ohio where an insurrectionist tried to attack a building with a nail gun and got shot. As I have said in every relevant article, law enforcement action will always increase the potential for stochastic violence. Criminals do not like being investigated and arrested.
However, this is not a “civil war.” It is not January 6th again. It is not currently an organized plan. The goal is not violence it is POWER.
My criticism of the press is their lack of context or understanding of how violence and propaganda is used to create panic. The fifth column wants to make it more difficult to prosecute crimes because of public fear. That is how they use violence to give themselves power. We should not cooperate with them.
As I have said repeatedly, the stochastic violence is going to get worse leading to the elections. It must be taken seriously. But the press is not helping by ginning up terror because cult members are mad online that Trump got raided. This is not an organized plan for violence, yet. This is the same group of angry cult members who were there before. Giving them power by amplifying their “civil war” propaganda is counterproductive.
“There is no uprising”
However, the potential for an actual kinetic civil war is very real. Here are a few articles about how that could really happen.
