This is a very simple post.
My sons (20's) and I (60's) had a discussion about the future of the country.
Both of them feel that the union will fracture before they are my age. Ending up as regional smaller unions.
I cant see it happening, except as a fall-back reaction to some dark event at the national level.
My sons just see it as the eventual natural result of the polarization of the country. I wish I didn't see that possibility, as well.
All I can hope is that the current disturbing trend of the current administration will result in a backlash that allows for us to again become a more compassionate and protective society.
