What are the future political faultlines along which future political battles in America will be fought? I am thinking Globalism-Nativism and Statism-Libertrianism will be big ones, but what about you? What do you think the main divisions will be?

Globalism vs nationalism. And that's a good thing.

The whole issue on the power of the state/libertarianism is restricted to the US for the most part.

Globalism v nativism, sadly. A necessary one, I suppose, one in which our common humanity and the forward march of progress will inevitably prevail.

Not really, there's a huge anarchist and communist following here in the UK

My main theory is that liberals and socialists will have huge divisions. Because the mainstream political discourse of much of America and the world is trying to push the liberals as leftists and radicals, when in fact they aren't, and the socialists push back. My theory is liberals will end up as centrists with a huge political beef with social democrats, communists, and Marxists (such as myself)
