Which of the 11 American nations do you live in?
« on: November 11, 2013, 08:53:46 PM »
Full story

    Journalist Colin Woodard says the United States is actually made up of 11 culturally distinct nation-states
    Each state evolved according to the colonial force that established it
    Rather than merge, these 11 nations are becoming even more discrete, with like-minded communities reinforcing prevailing political, religious and cultural attitudes


You might think you live in a nation of 50 unified states, but according to author and journalist Colin Woodard, the U.S. is a lot less united than we like to think.

According to Woodard, the country is divided not by state lines but is in fact separated into 11 neatly delineated nation states where dominant cultures are explained by who their early settlers were 'and the lasting cultural fissures they established.'

Woodard writes in Tufts University's alumni magazine that the original North American cultures developed in isolation from each other in distinct regions settled by Britain, France, the Netherlands and Spain.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
