Did anyone read that novella by the author of “One Second After”? It was horrifying. Basically Islamic extremists attack multiple schools around the US at the same time.
Then a short time later, phase 2 goes into action.
All the more reason why we need a real citizen militia. As in “being necessary to the security of a free state”… NECESSARY, not optional or advised, but necessary, as in required.
And if the government neglects its duty to maintain that vital necessary structure, then the power to maintain it must obviously return to The People. For as the Declaration of Independence clearly states “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it”

Yeah, I know… it’s hopeless. No one will ever advocate for restoring the militia.

I read it. Absolutely horrifying. That was the book that compelled me to carry ALL THE TIME EVERYWHERE. I thought about that main character and how he broke the rules. It’s a must-read for everybody.
And I was recently thinking, it doesn’t have to be a radical Islamic attack. We’ve got radicals to spare these days.

A grid failure need not be from an EMP either.

No lights, no law? You better have good neighbors, and know how to help one another…..

Right you are!
I find it amazing the difference in differing locations I have lived in,
-Apartment dwelling outside of major metro area: helped a young woman dig her car out after a freak snow storm. The best she could muster was, “Oh . . . thanks.” Back into her apartment she went.
-Townhouse community: knew 3 of my neighbors by name. Never really talked to any of them.
-House in suburbia: Didnt know anyone around me. Walking the dog, get questionable looks. My dog peed on a woman’shrub, and she accused my dog’s pee was going to kill said shrub.
-Rural area, out in the sticks: One winter, my wife’s car was stuck (front wheel drive). Some guy we never met, driving by, stopped, turned around, came back and helped me push her out. I thanked him profusely and shook his hand.

Other than how a person is raised , I think that having a hard life , tends to make most people more decent .
