To a certain extent I believe people would still comply, their community spirit shining through, though you'd be strained to find that community
spirit in most places without certain pressures placed upon the community such as the threatening of a hospital closure or similar.
I would hazard a guess however that more people now than in Second World War Britain would cause a fuss, refuse to block out the light from their
house, a larger scale of people getting their everyday items from black-market sources rather than putting up with rationing and generally thinking of
themselves before their community.
