With increasing political divide and heightened civil unrest in the United States, many fear that it will culminate in a second civil war. We explore the likelihood of that scenario and hear from someone who thinks America is already in the midst of collapse.

Thanks to Redditor u/playtho for this week's featured art, "Majestic, terrifying, and hungry. America 2020." You can find more of their work on Instagram @j.sidiritist.
