The Civil War Never Ended?
An interesting post from Andrew Sullivan (he’s actually talking about someone else who poses the suggestion) on whether the Civil War only ended militarily in 1865, but continues to be fought on other fronts to this day. In a nutshell: the “culture war” is the continuation of the Civil War. Sullivan wonders whether Obama, if he wins, will bring the “longest war in US history” finally to a close. Interesting thoughts.
