Division amongst America's people has never been more pronounced than it is today.
This division that exists today isn't just political but there is even hostility shown between the young and older generation as well as the displayed hostility between ethnic groups, And religious groups.
These divisions that exist today among America's people aren't just the divisions that have always existed to a certain extent but are divisions that tear at the very fiber of the Nation and refute the designation, "United states of America. " Today the people who occupy the same land have became separate islands of humanity who lack a common bond and empathy for each other and instead approach each other as enemies to be overwhelmed in some way, Not as fellow humans. The Author of the book Titled " The Disuniting of America, " gave this admonition to America, The author wrote, " If separatist tendencies go on unchecked the results can only be the fragmentation, Resegregation, And tribalization of American life. . . " Maybe this warning has came too late for America and its people.
Is the countries fate already sealed, We can only hope that this isn't America's final days, That divisions may prove to be too great to overcome and America's history will be much like the history of the once great and powerful Rome and recorded in the pages of history as a grand experiment that failed.

Just because a country is big does not mean it will break apart.

Just because a country is big does not mean it will break apart. Russia is bigger then the US, But it's not like Russia will break apart. Multiculturalism is one thing that divides countries.
