A look at the practical realities.
It would be quite a task to launch and maintain a Revolutionary Army today.
I give any attempt, save in sparsely populated areas, a 72 hours survival window before the powers that be, Trump or no Trump, fall on them like the wrath of God and obliterate all those not willing to surrender.
So the only way to move forward with this would be to act like a surreptitious force of irregulars like any insurgence operating with limited resources in occupied (by the government) terrain.
Like the IRA or pisslim terrorists or any similar force.
In the late 1940s future Israelis convinced the British to leave Palestine by these methods.
And most of those that would be willing to participate have zero experience in this kind of life and operations and have never been on the opposite side of the forces of law and order and quite to the contrary.
I’m not saying it can’t be done. But I wonder about (a) our disposition and (b) basic ability for it.
From the standpoint of theory or of dreams, a true, honest to goodness, all out, civil war is the best thing that could happen for us IF we were to give one now.
From the standpoint of practicality the probability of it being successful is very small.
We waited too long.
And we didn’t prepare enough when the preparing was good.
Mind you, the notion is “a true, honest to goodness, all-out, civil war.” My fear is that the best we can hope for is a series of limited, very confused, and short skirmishes that would resolve nothing, waste good, decent lives and only prove to all those pusillanimous and comfortable “I’m not gonna fight you no matter what you do to me” types that they were right in not getting involved.
Look, I’m not against it.
In fact, I’m very much in favor of civil war because I don’t see any other way for our country to survive as something decent and not the commie-fagoty thing the demonKKKrats want to “fundamentally change” us into that flies would fly away from because it would be too much, even for their maggots.
But I’m a realist, a practical individual, and a modest student of systems and trying to keep a clear head about this.
The Constitutional Republic (July 4th, 1776 – November 6th, 2020) is dead of a deadly disease: leftism plus corruption.
We could put it on suspended animation while we give a civil war (emergency surgery) and try to bring it back to life.
The problem is that as the surgeons we know the chances of a successful surgery and reanimation in the present circumstances are…small for lack of resources and time and patient condition.
Since the alternative is unthinkable I’m in favor of the surgery.
The alternative is we don’t have a country, anymore.
But let us not go into it thinking it will be a remake of 1776.
It would be…quite different.
Ohh, I’d say that’s about as safe a bet as bets can get. Lots more here, all worth careful thought.
