    Between what parties would the civil war be fought? America has a rather long history of solving it's internal political conflicts by non-violent means.

    So, for a civil war you need a political organization that
    1. Sees no other way to win other than by military means
    2. Can muster a military force large enough to actually fight a war.

    Do I see potential for civil war in USA? At least not in 40-50 years.

    I don't see the conditions for civil war at this time, certainly not between the states again, and not a civil war between ethnic groups, or at least not a clearly defined civil war, more like mass civil disturbances such as LA in the early 90s, and these can be repressed. More likely is that the increase in mass surveillance and the ever faster transition of the American police forces into a "security army", could in time become an unbearable imposition to ever growing parts of all society, whether poor Black or comfortable White, and generate the conditions for rebellion against the entire state apparat. But this is more likely to be unorganised and sporadic, as the state will, due to the mass surveillance, be able to infiltrate any organisations they see as a threat. Possibly they could see real "home grown terrorism" from individual, or very small groups of dissafected Americans from all backgrounds, thousands of people like Oklahoma bomber Timothy Mcveigh. IF it got to such a situation, which would be very dangerous and becoming chaotic, a military coup may occur, and then civil war between various parts of the state apparat, and then armed civilians looking to defend their communities from the various parts of the warring state, and the break up of America as we know it. But this is all looking into a very cloudy crystal ball.
