    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.

    The only civil war I am aware of at present is between nationalist factions within the military and intel community and globalist factions in those same institutions. It is currently a covert civil war. The globalist "elites" have been trying to foment racial unrest in the US particularly between the black community and the white community, but so far it hasn't really gotten anywhere.

    We can all agree that reality in media and reality in reality are two very different things...

    Civil wars require politicians and elites to use the rabble to win power. As long as none of the US power elites resort to street fighting there
    will not be any civil war. I simply do not see a US Civil War level of division among the US power elites.

    BTW, the US civil war was about economics interests and not BS like freeing the slaves. The North was not going to allow the South to secede
    and take important territory and resources with it. The South was not going to live by the economic model of the North. Slavery was just an
    aspect of this.

    NO. Not even close.

    The collapse of the dollar however, leading to a great depression, leading to a geopolitical reshuffle with Russia and China having a substitute for the by then collapsed U.S financial system does present such an opportunity.

    Liberal Western states splitting from the rest: that is, California, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington....I can see that Western corridor pushing to leave the Union. The demographics, as well as the ideological make-up of those states is favorable for partition. North/South, black/white of the civil war is no longer a problem for the Union. Mexican hispanics along with liberal whites + asians and some native indians might under such chaos - in the states I mentioned. Those states are becoming detached from the rest of the U.S culturally. Kvs also makes a strong point about the role of the elites.

    A flipped Mexico would also help but you can never ever ever ever ever trust the Mexicans to engage in political confrontation with the U.S. The Mexican leadership wouldn't even know where to begin - no personal accustomed to such politics. Cuba on the other hand is an expert at it - after years of experience of course. Cuba is in no position to significantly influence such a situation as it could hardly influence the millions of mexicans in the U.S (no cultural connection). It has a better chance at influencing liberal whites receptive to socialism much more so than mexicans hehe + it will take time for another Castro to pop up. Takes about 50-80 years - in Cuba's case.
