state of the US
This time in US history is going to be referred to in the history books in the same way as the state of Europe before the first world war broke out. "It was only a matter of time before XYZ happened" etc etc. I don't know what that event will be of course, but (perhaps pessimistically) I don't have high hopes that the tension will de-escalate either.
Not referring to any specific recent event by the way, this is just the general vibe I get from an outsider perspective.
