Civil war: Are we headed for a new one?

Today, for the first time in my life, I read and heard in the news a discussion of the possibility of civil war.

Apparently the hate and divisions in our country have brought historians and other civic-minded people to the contemplation of this possibility.

The current president is not bringing us together; instead he fans the flames of this division with his tweets, speeches and denigrations of the free press.

How will we come together? What will bring us all to our senses?

Unfortunately history points to war and great suffering to finally unite a country.
