From WRSA Blog: The Winds of Civil War

The Coming Crisis?   I post this piece from the right for 3 reasons:  1.  It is intelligent and well written.  2.  It includes possible scenarios which link closely with ideas expressed by Howe and Strauss in The Fourth Turning:  An American Prophesy.  3. It is important to know positions which may run counter to one's own,  but may be so urgent and well-stated that they modify one's own perspective.  Although I am largely in disagreement with certain of its premises,  the idea of our Civil War history rising again,  as thought the former were a precedent and pre-history,  compelled to reassert itself in the eleventh hour,  is so in lime with the saeculum theory of Howe and Strauss,  that I feel an urgency to post the link  :
