Hives not hegemony...
I'm in favor of the idea of the US breaking up into several smaller countries. I'm disheartened by the manufactured stalemate of red and blue states, as opposed to the clear differences that actually define our nation's people.
If and when it comes to drawing lines and slicing up the country, I wonder if it can be done with a scalpel rather than an extra wide Sharpie... Seems that many urban centers share one set of values while the outlying areas subscribe to another. Can borders be drawn on psychological lines rather than geographical ones? What might those maps look like?
