It's time for the USA to balkanize. How can that happen peacefully?

From a international perspective....It would be Catastrophic at the very least. A balkanized USA could not stand to China or Russia (Russias not as tough but still).

From a national perspective....It could not happen without voilence unless the liberal states wanted to dump the red states.

The Left has their vision of future and the Right will not submit.
I do not want Boogaloo.
I do not want civil war.
But its clearly high time for the USA to balkanize.
I don't know how that happens peacefully.

Any ideas?

In a democracy, our solution is usually something we call "elections."

 Really, as has been noted, balkanization and peaceful don't play well together. And if by balkanization you mean hostile groups hopelessly intertwined on the ground, then you got it already. Not many states are overwhelmingly blue or overwhelmingly red, your conservative states are peppered with liberal cities, your liberal states have conservative hinterlands. Whichever side you are on, your "enemies" live among you. They don't neatly live way off in some other state. You can't disentangle all that with simple secessionist fantasies.

Really in my opinion its time to defund the universities. Do it and watch tensions crumble (over 10 years or so).

Texlahoana - Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, maybe Arkansas
The SOUTH - Bama, Georgia, Mississippi, maybe SC too
Floridamanland - Florida is diverse enough and weird enough it might survive alone
The Commie South - Virginia, NC, eastern Tennessee
Ohio Basin - Ohio, Kentucky, Western Tennesee
Damned Yankee Land - You know where...except oddly enough probably excluding upstate NY and Maine
Leave us alone - ND, SD, Montana, Wyoming, Kansas, maybe Iowa
Chicagoland - Loosely affiliated city-states of Madison, Chicago, and Milwaukee
Mormon Paradise - Utah, southern Idaho
Vegas - Autonomous, Reno erects a wall around itself like Berlin to keep out the Californians
Missouri would most likely be its own state, given that they hate Kansas but really share nothing in common with anyone else in the area

My guess is that their next step will be to legalise a way of being able to cross-reference names with which candidate they voted for. The way the Left keeps getting blindsided by things like Trump and Brexit because the silent majority don't want to risk their careers/lives on speaking Wrong Think aloud, which they can do in the voting booth. This will naturally lead them to try and 'give nazis no safe places to hide', though it will probably be under the guise of preventing voter fraud/foreign agents.
