The civil war of the 1860s was geographically defined,

its manifestos canonical, the armies Napoleonic, the front was bounded and orderly, gallantry and honor were valued if not always practiced.
All in all, a classy affair as wars go. Contemporary civil wars are multi-cornered murderous brawls between partisan militias. Added to this are armed opportunists and the outright deranged. Front lines appear and disappear like summer squalls, alliances shift by the day, high-minded principles devolve into homicidal savagery while everyday life drifts into destitution and universal hunger.

Your Say

The next one will start in someone's breakfast nook.

"The fuckin' eggs are RUNNY, they're always RUNNY!"
"Then make em yourself you fuckin' asshole!"
"Fuck you hor, you're still pissed because cankles lost and you're taking it out on me!"

(800 degree greasy spatula sails over the breakfast bar rendering square footage of 3rd degree burns on the side of his face)

Before it's over SWAT is on the scene and the NSA and TSI are on the line, the neighbors are taking sides and shoving and the entire neighborhood has been cordoned off and every firetruck in the county is enroute. wump-wump-wump-wump media choppers crowd the sky with telephoto lenses all the way out to here. ack-ack-ack-ack-ack an obese SWAT cuck stumbled on a dangling strap and with finger on trigger lets off a string of 17 .40's into his team members backs who turn on him and spray the crowd with hellfire. The armed neighbors fire back and flashbangs are in concert as pandemonium sweeps the hood.

I keep seeing the idea posted in various places that in the next US civil war, your skin color will be your uniform. Not sure I agree with that but I can see how it would manifest.
