I doubt seriously that James has any misunderstanding at this point,

For the life of me I can't figure out why anyone would think
"balkanization" means anything other than *exactly that.* Or how
using a word very precisely and literally is somehow "metaphorical."
Really, we've pushed the Cone-of-Silence bit about as far as
amusement will allow, so at this point if you're actually still lost,
well, sorry about that.
