Gangs of Marauders

It all started when the Patriots were duped into believing, that they were being victimized by their democratic government. (Even though they had freedom for a quarter century, they thought their liberty was in jeopardy.) The elites didn’t want to share their land and wealth with the world anymore, so they decided to end democracy by instigating a nationalist coup. Tragically fascists never learn the most important lesson, that in order to get along, you have to get along, otherwise your propaganda destabilizes the entire region.
First we were unplugged from the power grid. Second the internet went offline. Third the food and fuel supply chains were shutdown. So hysteria overtook the masses, but the worst part, was the technology withdrawal, because there was no longer any emotional escape, no cell phones to stay in touch and no digital media. Millions of people in limbo and foreign countries in financial ruin and collapse.
Here in the states—all the remnants of local government could do was to hold-on as they witnessed the domestic terrorists run amok over the bad lands of America. It was every man for himself, so barbarism ensued—might makes right, when its a numbers game. For the purpose of self-preservation, ruthless gangs began to form and started to roam—survival of the fittest. The fragmented communities and the minority groups became sitting ducks as the blood-thirsty tribes tried to survive. Dead patriots on the streets, stench everywhere, and women and children left behind to die. When there are too many guns, there are too many political suicides. (I saw it in a dream, and it was frightening!) It became a waiting game to see who would outlast the other, the military skeleton armies, the insurrectionists or the foreign autocratic interlopers.

The Civil War | Facts You Need to Know

What Made The American Civil War so Deadly?

Commentary: When a country throws up its arms in disgust, because nobody wants to compromise and everybody is constantly digging in their heels, because they don’t want to relinquish the ideology of their polarized parties or culture groups. It becomes easier for society to become cynical about its democratic institutions and the government protections they provide. Physical and emotional fatigue makes cowards out of all of us, and when a patriot believes that he can’t win, he resigns to the temptation—that he perceives to be the easier way out—to forfeit democracy and let a power hungry strong man do the governing for him. In the Bible, the Jews had the opportunity to govern themselves with judges, but they always opted to relinquish their freedom to a king. This provided temporary peace of mind, but eventually the honeymoon is over and the domestic abuse begins.

When white supremacists overthrew a government

“Our founding fathers, having just lived through a revolution, tried really hard to create a system of government that could avoid a revolution in the future. The Constitution of the United States of America is the result. A system that has built in a very straightforward way of allowing for everything from small tweaks (2 term limit for President) to massive social change (end slavery, give women equal rights—yes, I know the ERA didn’t pass, that’s part of my point) and the potential for a complete reboot (without the need for violence) in the form of calling for a constitutional convention.
The state in which I live has had 5 constitutions (and prior to the US, 4 versions of the Frame of Government originally written by William Penn) the most recent was 1968, a few months before I was born.
When I hear people say ‘we need a revolution’ I will often ask ‘why not address your concerns via a constitutional amendment or a new constitution?’ The reply is usually quite enlightening as to the motivations and thinking of those calling for revolution. Some people clearly relish the idea of sowing chaos and destruction, and those are the people who scare me the most.” [….]
You’re right that any armed revolution started right now would be disastrous. And, I fear, would mostly lead to fascism as the government was required to crack down on all the various dissidents.
Though I think you’re overestimating the potential ‘breakup’ of America. I don’t think it would happen like that. The division of America today isn’t like that of Yugoslavia. You don’t have black nationalists living in one state, Mexican nationalists living in another, Protestant nationalists living in one and Catholic nationalists living in another. Sure, you have racial and ethnic and religious diversity. But the reality is, that’s spread out everywhere, and our ultimate dividing lines aren’t region-based or even culture-based anymore, they’re political. ‘Left-wing’ and ‘right-wing’ are far more important classifiers to Americans than ‘Wisconsinite’ or ‘Californian’.
Cities all across America are mostly liberal or left-wing. Rural America is mostly right-wing. The divide is geographic, but it isn’t state vs. state, it’s rural-vs-urban. And neither can really survive without the other.
This means that, if it comes down to ‘A revolution,’ today, it will probably be left-wing vs. Right-wing, not California vs. Texas. And one side will have to win and will re-consolidate America. Whether that’s rural America with its guns and bread, or urban America with its wealth, technology, and factories.
Either way, I think it will lead to tyranny on a massive scale. Government surveillance, oaths of loyalty, secret police, whatever. That’s not to say left-wing and right-wing are the same. Just that no matter what, if there’s a civil war in the US in our current political climate, the government that comes out of it will have to be far more repressive than ours today.
So I’m not seeing a ‘broken up’ America, is my point. I’m seeing a united one that is fascist or totalitarian. Still not a good outcome.” Comments in Let’s talk about revolution.…

“Ignorance breeds fear. We fear those things we don’t understand. If we don’t put a lid on that fear and keep that fear in check, that fear in turn will breed hatred because we hate those things that frighten us. “If we don’t keep that hatred in check, that hatred in turn will breed destruction.” By: Daryl Davis
