Could a new "Civil War" be on the American horizon? We consider prospects and scenarios as we review David Greenfield's recent headlined essay: "The Civil War Is Here." Has the Left lost respect for the Rule of Law in America? Have the Democrats determined to undermine any "authority" but their own? Has the "power worship" of postmodernist philosophy subverted the constitutional abstractions that have held America together? We survey the "scalping" strategy of the Left, along with its rabid defense of Sanctuary Cities and one-way approaches to Free Speech. Why do some on the left view Steve Bannon as a greater enemy than North Korea? Will partisan battles over border security hasten a "shutdown" of the government? Meanwhile, we offer vignettes on chess, football, Rush Limbaugh and human flourishing. With Listener Calls & Music via Louane, Zara Larsson, Dwight Yoakam, Cesaria Evora, Bernard Lavilliers and the Dream Academy.
