Semantics. Call it whatever you want but America is long past any political intersection allowing a peaceful return to freedom. We are doomed and destined for slavery with the ONLY viable alternative left to us to prevent that outcome being violence and bloodshed. Doesn’t matter what term you apply to it.

We will continue to fall into tyranny because over 95% of Americans don’t give a hoot what type gov.we have. As long as they got their video games, phones and social media nothing else matters to them. Majority of patriots have passed on, so few exist today it won’t matter at this point.

CW2 or revolution? It doesn’t make any difference because it will be the same outcome. If we win we’re gonna fix the damn government and get back to constitutional principles and perhaps rewrite some passages in the original constitution and bill of rights to prevent this crap from ever happening again but knowing full well it might happen again in a hundred or two hundred years or so just as the founding fathers knew that someday we would also have to fight. Matt Bracken wrote an interesting piece called The Civil War 2 Cube. Here’s a link. I think it pertains to the original questions and the points that were brought up in the video.

It is not possible to fix any government, as they are all organic organisms. Large centralized governments are not like a mechanical device where you can replace a part(s) in order to keep it operating in good order.
All centralized governments devolve to democracy and then into tyranny. The Swiss form of government is somewhat of an exception, and it has endured for so long, primarily, because it is more decentralized, with most of the authority residing within the individual Cantons. Although, even the Swiss form of government is centralizing under the influence of the Bank of International Settlements, globalism and immigration.
The Swiss people for the most part are better educated then most Americans, so, hopefully, the Swiss people will be able to avoid the tyranny and the destruction of personal freedom and property rights now confronting Americans.
America’s federalist form of government was doomed from the very beginning. Thomas Jefferson understood this. The Anti-federalist tried to inform the public of the dangers of centralized form of constitutional government, which in fact, has the same objectives as the collectivist form of one world government.
Prior to the war between the states John C. Calhoun tried to warn both the people of South Carolina and the people of the other States on the unfavorable aspects of the constitution and the unrestrained powers of the government and how combined would lead to conflict. Calhoun pointed out that “government intended to protect and preserve society, has itself a strong tendency to disorder and abuse of its powers, as all experience and and almost every page of history testify. The cause is to be found in the same constitution of our nature which makes governments indispensable.”
Well, Calhoun’s warnings were disregarded by Americans, so we find ourselves in a communist / fascist / globalist post coup d’état period.
Welcome to the Brave New World, enforced by the 1984 government agencies. Aldous Huxley would be pleased.

“Civil War” is when two (or more) Political Factions are fighting for Control of the existing ‘government’, generally with Organized Military Forces (usually, the existing ‘government’ Military is a part of this) and when a ‘military solution’ is achieved, the Winning Side takes control of the ‘government’.
“Revolution” is when a less-organized uprising against the ‘government’ succeeds in creating enough Chaos that the ‘government’ Collapses, and its leadership is Exterminated. Whatever political Re-constitution of the State takes place without the Defeated ‘side’ involved.
In both cases, there is a High Possibility of foreign Nations becoming ‘involved’, either Directly with Military Action, or indirectly with various means of support for one side or the other.
