In peacetime, there are many factions.
When war breaks out, the factions sort out into 2 sides. It's like the quantum mechanical collapse of a wavefunction. In war, there can be only 2.
When World War III breaks out, what will be the two sides? Which factions will be on which side?
WW3 is inevitable.
The Democratic party is not unified. The only thing holding it together is hatred of Trump. Now that we are a 1-party state, the Democratic party will fission into factions. It's a powderkeg. Light the fuse.
In most European wars, there were two factions. England joined the weaker faction and kicked the stronger faction's ass. Most European wars have the world "coalition" or "entente" or "alliance" in the title. Whenever a European power got too mighty, the rest of the Europeans ganged up to smash it down.
James Bond: The CIA really carved up this country, didn't it?
Felix Leiter: Coming from a Brit, I take that as a compliment.
Same idea from a different direction, I've been looking at news. Media will state something obviously false with even the slightest fact checking. One side believes and the other argues it's false.
I keep coming back to this poorly restated quote:
"The more ridiculous a claim, the more useful it is to control the population. It defines the level of obedience by a population."
Andrew Yang took a stand on Twitter in support of Israel and then was attacked by Democrats. Yang was accused of being a white supremacist. Yang backed down.
Democrats hate everyone. Whites, Asians, Jews, Christians, rurals, blue collar workers, and men. I see a grand alliance forming against Democrats, because Democrats are jerks.
Democrats are imperialistic. They try to conquer anything they can. They won't leave anyone be. They're even trying to bully states like South Dakota with their transgender bull. They want to flood Montana with illegal immigrants. They bully Wyoming with bullschist water laws. Democrats are installing sleeper agents in rural territory in the form of pro-crime DAs and sheriffs. Jerks.
Democrats are like Spanish conquistadors. When they conquer, they insist that the vanquished have to convert to the Democrat way. There is no flexibility in the Democrat way. It's as rigid as the Spanish Inquisition. They're like the Borg. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated. And the Democrat way is dumb. Republicans will never want to live this way. The territory that Democrats conquered is seething with rage.
When empires like this emerge, people tend to form a coalition to oppose the empire, like what happened in WW2.
Excommunication is a powerful weapon, up until the point where the excommunicated form their own protestant church, and then it's game over. Excommunication only works if used sparingly. Democrats are trigger-happy with excommunication and they way overdid it. They excommunicated most of the world.
Just as there were allies and there was an Axis in WW2, I believe it will be the same for WW3: 7 revived Empires which are now all under Islamic rule, vs. (the remnants?) of the 7 (Micah 5:5, ref Ezek 28:7) "terrible of the nations" (global non-islamic military mights), as prophesied. And what of the Woke? They'll likely be swallowed up by the new Axis, be made to recite the shahada. They're not totally incompatible, save the LGBT crowd. But the kicker is, when the Axis is defeated (and they will be), the "second (red) horseman" saunters in "to take peace from the earth, that they should kill one another". The new "allies" end up at each other's throats. This, after the "second horseman":
"Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low." (note: "brought low", not utterly destroyed)
"Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly."
Almost half the earth - the "meek" among the nations - survive. That's my best guess. First a third are cut off, then a fourth of that are cut off. With Israel, 2/3 perish.
Adendum: before this great war happens, there will be 42 months (3.5 years) of relative global peace. If you're still around at that time, know that the peace is temporary.
Mystics : The Eagle and the Bear will fight the Dragon.
As for the left in America. It will form a totalitarian state and then eat its own or fail and splinter.
Antifa and BLM are both a big plus for the left initially but an impediment to any government. So in the end they will go.
