Civil War in America from Carter’s Perspective

Former US President Jimmy Carter warned of the outbreak of a civil war in the country, stressing that democracy in the United States is under threat.
“Without immediate action, we are in real danger of civil strife and the loss of our precious democracy,” Carter said in an article in the American newspaper, on the eve of the anniversary of the attack by supporters of former President Donald Trump on the US Capitol.
Carter, 97, called on Americans to “put aside their differences and act before it is too late.”
“The promoters of lies about election theft have taken over one political party and fueled mistrust in our electoral systems,” Carter added, expressing hope that “the deadly attack on the Capitol will shock the nation to confront the toxic polarization that threatens our democracy.”
He also noted that politicians “have benefited from the mistrust they have created to enact laws that enable partisan legislatures to interfere in electoral processes,” adding that they “seek to win by any means, and many Americans are persuaded to think and act in the same way, threatening to collapse the foundations of our security and our democracy at lightning speed.” For breath,” he said.
The former US president concluded: “I now fear that what we have fought so hard to achieve globally, which is the right to free and fair elections, unhindered by powerful politicians who only seek to develop their power, is now dangerously fragile at home.”
