[quote:s. d. butler:MV8xNzc1OTAyXzMwODA3MTIzXzNCNzlCNTUw] [quote:Vermonster:MV8xNzc1OTAyXzMwODAzMDc1XzIxQ0QxOTQw] Has anyone read The Nine Nations of North America? http://www.garreau.com/main.cfm?action=book&id=3 The funny thing is our resources aren't running out. They're just jacking up the prices and laughing all the way to the bank when they post their tens of billions in profits. People should be infuriated, but they're not. Change is tough and we all want it to be like it was, when we could afford houses, cars, and education. Now we can barely afford food. Media corporations have successfully sidetracked us with football, NASCAR, sex, alcohol, fast food, and celebrity culture. We're so caught up in this whirlwind of media campaign blitzes that we don't even know what's real anymore. Most people in this country value a bag of Doritos more than the plants that provide them oxygen. So many people (not everyone!) have lost what's important. I don't have all the answers of how to fix this mess we're in, but there needs to be an overhaul of the distribution of wealth. It's not just about the dollar and coin, paper and metal. Working hard doesn't get you shit anymore, though they've always pounded that into our brains; work hard and you'll "make it." We need to find a balance where everyone can contribute and receive, give and take in a free and balanced way. I'm not talking welfare or handouts either. Something's gonna give and we're about to smack into the brick wall. [/quote] You don't have to be "sidetracked" by the things you cite. You certainly don't have any answers if all you can think of is to "redistribute wealth". It might have escaped your notice but Lenin, stalin, mao and others used that to create hell. [/quote]
I'm wondering what a modern day civil war in the US would look like?
How would it happen? What would happen? How would it effect the average citizen? Would we all be taking up guns and aiming them at family and friends with differing opinions?
Would the righty's kill the lefty's?
Instead of using guns would hackers attack the govn't websites, leak info and possibly hack other tactical targets such has power plants, water systems, rail.. etc.
Would some giant corporation step in and form it's own govn't?
Would there be martial law, and if so.. do you think some our own military soldiers would defect and defend whatever side they choose?
Would there be an Eeastern US and Western US or possibly even more... the Southern states, the NorthEastern States..etc.
I know it's pretty bleak but just something I've been thinking about for a while and I'm wondering what others are thinking?
Is a civil war even possible in the United States this day and age?
