How about complete societal collapse? Imagine a country without welfare, no value in currency, incapable of growing or manufacturing anything. No television, no running water, no electricity. No gas in your car, no communication from facebook, twitter, the mail services; nothing. Imagine your life without a fire department, a police department, a transportation department, etc. This isn't a Civil War we will be fighting, it will be a Survival War. How's your aim? Got any food stores? Have anything to barter? Do you have seeds and know how to garden? Do you have books to educate your fellow man with? Would you be willing to share? [/quote] [/quote] This view is mostly hogwash. It won't take long for a currency to emerge, entrepreneurs will supply everything needed in varying time frames. Initially things might be bad,depending on where you live, but people will adjust, markets will re establish, trade and commerce will start again. I can imagine life very well without police. And a transportation department. Whatever that is. Who ever wrote this post appears to be a state worshipper. [/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?
