  •  Civil War (4.00)
    What Carson is basically saying is that we are back to the decades before the Civil War.

    The South then (today a bit expanded) was pre-modern in all respects (with its positive points too, of course)

    The North, was progressive (with its faults, of course)

    The dicotomy just grows with time, however, as the tensions just grow bigger.

    Interesting, in both periods (today and before) religion was at the center of the cultural wars.
