If our country errupted in a revolt against our government, would you sign up to protect the government, or rise up to protect the people?
Since no one responded to your question I guess I will.
I would sooner die than support the government in a civilian uprising. I am not saying that I would outright support the people either. They may earn
my bad side if they are just useful idiots running amuck and taking advantage of a situation like a belligerent mob. If they were honest in their
efforts and true to their purpose I could support them.
I would love to see this government fall. I would not like to see it fall out of spite or just for the sake of it falling though. If a worthy
alternative wasnt produced BEFORE the uprising to usurp power then I would not like to see the government fall. There are still plenty of good people
in its ranks.
I would not kill my fellow citizen under almost any circumstances though.
Other scenario in this value check.
If my family was killed by this government or imprisoned.
I would still not take up a cause and especially not someone elses. I would however learn to hunt "them" and kill "them". (banking and political elite
is "them"). It would be about vengeance. If my family was taken from me I would take as many of "them" and their family with me before I am caught or
killed. I wouldnt become an alcoholic sad mess. I would focus and train for about 5 years and plan a series of reprisal attacks aimed at killing the
banking and political elite I felt were responsible according to their level of involvement along with who ever actually carried out the act against
my family. If I succeeded in my primary purpose of killing those responsible I would continue with a new list which included all their cohorts and
support groups. I would not kill a single person in law enforcement or in the military though, even if they were told to try to catch or kill me. They
too our my fellow citizen.
I wouldnt be a mad angry mess trying to go out with a bang. I would be quiet and precise enough to escape and kill as many of my primary target as
possible before being killed or caught.
Short of those scenarios, I would try to live my life in peace and enjoy my family in what ever mess of a world we are forced to live in. I am not
one to take up other peoples causes or see myself so arrogantly as to think I am special and worthy of destroying the system so many people depend on
in favor of some quaint idea I or some other gem of the human race came up with as its replacement.
I wouldnt be Mr freedom fighter killing people for a "newer" world order under some douche like Russell Brand or a modern day Che. If such a false
arose to lead my country and people into revolutionary chaos I would probably be pitted against him if I thought his intentions were less
than honest. If HE was directly or indirectly responsible for killing or hurting my family in a serious manner I would apply everything I just said to
him and his little revolutionaries. I still wont kill law enforcement, military or fellow citizens. Not even those dumb enough to follow him from
They wouldnt earn my wrath, but those in leadership positions within the movement I would absolutely kill.
and thats about it. With no family or a with a threat to my family: I would kill the people responsible out of vengeance or survival. No random
revolution for me though. It would have to be honest and true.
Otherwise I will be content to just be a father and a husband.
To everyone who responded thus far:
I hope that this little window I just opened into my mind doesnt show too much unpleasantness. I know these are all very dark thoughts but I can
entertain them and still be myself after, so I did. I hope you can as well.
Thanks for the responses thus far. You were honest and for that I thank you no matter what your position was.
Have a good one
Hold it down.
