  1. There’s a difference. The USSR was held together by military and police coercion. When that was removed, every state went its own way. The USSR evaporated. Centrifugal force.

    With the US, it’s centripetal force—pulling inward. Even if all the Federal restraints were removed, and despite all the conservative/liberal crappola, the forces holding the US together are much stronger than those pushing it apart. People have family and friends all over the country. Highways and phone lines and chain stores and favorite vendors are all over the place. Health insurers and Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security all bind us together.

    So if the Federal government suddenly dissolved, the first thing that would happen is that we would reinvent it.

    There’s no way the USA is going to collapse into separate countries

    The USSR may be the largest empire in history to disappear without a war.

    The USA may be the largest nation in history to grow up without a dominant native ethnicity or culture.
