Thanks to everyone who participated. Once again, this is not a scientific poll, and should not be taken any more serious than any other fictional novel.
It would appear that there are at least two readers who do not believe we are in a cold civil war, and I am glad for that. It gives an indication of hope, even if it is a minority of readers.
Everyone else thinks we are either in a cold civil war, or are headed that way. Neither of are wonderful indicators for the future.
