Oct. 5 (Bloomberg) - In “American Nations,” I’ve sought to
show how our Balkanized past has informed our divided present,
in the hopes of fostering a better understanding of the American
identity and predicament. But inevitably people ask what this
means for the future.
The short answer is, of course, that nobody knows. But
given the challenges facing the U.S., Mexico and, to a lesser
extent, Canada, it seems unwise to simply assume that North
America’s political boundaries will remain as they are today.
