Is America More Divided Now Than During the Civil War?

Here’s The Scoop

As we navigate the tumultuous seas of our current political climate, one question looms large: Is America more divided now than during the Civil War?

This question, while provocative, isn’t without merit. Our nation, once united under common ideals, now seems to be ripping at the seams, with differing ideologies creating a chasm that appears to be widening by the day.

During the Civil War, the division was clear – North against South, brother against brother. Yet, there was a sense of unity within each faction, a shared belief that their cause was just. Can we say the same about today’s America?

The lines of division are no longer geographical but ideological, cutting across families, communities, and even religious congregations. The rhetoric has escalated to a point where civil discourse seems a distant memory.

This poll seeks your opinion. Is America more divided now than during the Civil War? Your voice matters, so let it be heard. Let’s engage in a conversation that could lead us toward a more united future, for the sake of our great nation.

    For decades the Left, aka the Commiecrat Party, has deliberately divided this nation along every possible demographic knowing full well no nation so polarized and divided as this one now is can survive as established. The ultimate goal is the economic and cultural collapse of this nation so a centralized top dome omnipotent single party government can be established on the ruins! That goal will be reached, is at least 90% realizewd1

    It doesn’t seem that the rules of Law are being followed. To me there is no longer common ground to rally around. We used to identify the constitution as the core of all men and women in the United States. Now whoever is in power at the executive level uses it as a bat.

    It is sad to see how many people have been estranged from family and their church by posts from family and church members. We are more divided now than in the 1960’s. Please, pray for peace.

    Certainly it is. One of the major failings of a democracy is that, over time, the opposing sides (liberal vs. conservative) become more and more polarized ’til what was once the “lunatic fringe” becomes the mainstream. Supporters of each side become more and more rabid. Anytime there’s a transfer of power from one side to the other those newly in power spend the first part of their rule doing little more than undoing all the other side did while they were in power. The differences between 1860 and now are that the division isn’t mainly over a single-issue and that the people of today are far less likely (for now) to take-up arms against the government, (since one side spends so much of their political effort to neuter the people out of fear they might rise-up). Democracy is unsustainable over the long-term and must, every so often, be reset by revolution.
