Nestor, I respect your opinion. But the division today is not of the same magnitude as that of 1861 to 1865. We were being brainwashed in school in the 1960's. I know, I lived it. Only a solid foundation of conservative thought, brought by my parents helped me to recognize it for what it was. Yes, its bad today. But its been bad and worse in the past. We can still survive this. Edited to add Rush likes to mention from time to time how every generation thinks its living the end of days.
