In Section 2, part 1 “Bug out or bug in”, you said “Signs were there but people simply did not want to believe, or did not recognize signs.” Can you tell us all what those signs were specifically and how did people treat them dismissively?

I think i can “round up” all explanations why we dismissed signs in good old “it can not happen here”.
And all that “it can not happen here” opinion can be summed up simply because we never experienced anything similar before, so we thought it can not happem.
Yes, there were lot of folks who experienced horrific things in WW2 and they probably recgognized signs, but majority would not listen them.
It is hard to imagine something, to see something bad is coming if you did not experienced it before.
On the other side even if you have experience in that events it may be hard to convince people how fast can all go to s..t.
When it comes to what particular signs, there were a lot of those,small signs in everyday life and aso changes in society:
-polarisation among people which led to hate and fear (between different politic options, religions, nationalities etc) that went sharply up months before war
– erosion of law and goverment structures-not like full chaos and absence of order (like later when shtf) but more like ocssaninally complete absence of law when it come to particular events, for example fail to prosecute someone who suddenly have huge number of followers, or sudden rise of leaders who clearly arise from criminal structures and similar. Those folks usually “caught” important positions later when full chaos erupt
-small but important signs like rich and important people leaving area, more and more items being hard to buy (transport of goods was harder and harder).
We seen all, but we thought ” all this gonna be better very soon, and bad things can not happen here”.
