36. Much more effective, and more likely, is to promote division of all types, as the goal is to weaken

...Western democracies and neuter them on the world stage. Thus the push to break up the EU, which was the most effective means of keeping peace in Europe in 2,000 years.

The US was the most important democratic country on the planet in the 20th century, an economic, political, diplomatic, and military powerhouse, the "indispensible nation," but through a combination of our own folly and Russian attacks, this will not be the case in the 21st century. We have as many gun deaths as a shooting war already, and the election of Trump allowed every RWNJ to come out from under their rocks and bridges and fly their freak flags. We are experiencing the psychological effects of this terrorism every day, but I think a literal Civil War 2 is not likely -- just a further crumbling of our social and governmental infrastructure, until our democracy has eroded fatally.
