Well, here's my answer... I made the scenario kind of tough on myself, because I know all the stuff I'd try to do if I were a rebel and so I
designed my police state to hedge against those things.
I'd be the most legit guy you ever met. You'd be able to set your watch by where my RFID was. Work 15 minutes before my shift starts, the bar 30
minutes after it ends, home by 10, church at 9:15 on sunday, etc etc.
Why? Because they've got a mass of data running through their hands so fast they don't know what to do with it. They have to filter for suspicious
Suppose that you came back to the construction site where you work after hours to steal some blasting caps, diesel fuel, and pipe...
Don't you think they are going to do background checks on the people who work at the site and question the ones whos RFIDs have NEVER been tracked in
the city where they are supposed to be carrying them?
When they check my record, they'll find out that my RFID was last logged at the intersection near a movie theater 15 minutes before the last showing
of a certain film, then again 10 minutes after the film would have ended. They'll have a record of me buying a ticket on my credit card too. Of
course all I did was tape my wallet to the underside of the seat, then leave the theater and go steal some bomb making supplies from my jobsite, but
their computers will never even flag me as a suspect.
Long story short, I'm going to bank on the fact that the surveillance state can only catch me if I'm either stupid or resisting. They won't have
time to mess with people who look like they are complying.
As for resistance: the trickiest part is making the decision to trust somebody. Everyone has a few friends, but you'll need a large organization.
I'd shy away from using any organization that would be expected to cause problems, such as a labor union or a church, because informants will be
cultivated in such places by the authorities. I'd probably take up more of a social life to whatever extent the new shape of society allowed it. Hit
the bars, go to the gym, etc. Just be out in public and make it a point to engage people in conversation- try to make 2 or 3 contacts every day and
maintain them at least weekly in order to screen them as possible allies.
Once you've got a network of people, you need to create a pretext for meetings. If a 10-20 people who have no affiliation through church, work, or
school, or other movements suddenly start logged going to the same places at the same times at all hours, it's going to raise a flag. You'll need
money to operate anyway, so the obvious answer to both problems for a resistance is to go into business. Once you've got a few people together, you
consolidate the groups funds and use them to go into business. "25 guerillas and a truck moving company" or whatever. With your outfit all working
together, and actuallly running a business, albeit inefficiently, you appear to have jobs when many of you are actually fighting the man full time,
your group has a solid budget despite that, and you have an excuse for aquiring materials you may need.
Next you plan, and start creating excuses for carrying out your plan. One of you enrolls as a college student and declares a major in chemistry so it
doesn't seem suspicious if he buys textbooks which can help you learn about making explosives. One of you applies for a job at the phone company so
its no big deal if you're caught with the handset that you've been using to listen in on a suspected snitch. etc etc.
Your plan needs to involve surveillance- accounting for loyalists, informants, and police strength, watching for movement of higher authorities in the
city, making special note of every day details you don't normally notice that would affect operations- traffic patterns, police response times, which
streets are well lit and have bad concealment and which ones are easy to hide on, etc. It needs to involve logistics, what will you need to exercise
control over the city, what do you need to acquire that, how long will it take you, etc. Also pay close consideration to where you fit into the big
picture: Do you live in Quantico and if so what can you do to eff with the FBI? Does your town have a freeway interchange that a national guard convoy
would have to use to get to a major city quickly, etc etc.
Of course you don't just want to act in your little down, you want to be part of an organized larger resistance. Your group is going to have to be
large enough to divide certain round the clock responsibilities, and one of those is monitoring a police scanner. Find out where the police are having
problems and meet the people who live there.
If widespread travel is still allowed, you'll obviously want to make excuses to go out of town and make contacts- buy tickets to sporting events or
concerts from your group's funds as a pretext for it, whatever.
If not you'll want to have a few dedicated off-griders in your group and equip them to move offroad. Find them dirtbikes, horses, whatever, and break
out the maps to plot a safe, out of sight course to wherever you want to make an outreach. Let him hang out on the outskirts of the town for a while
monitoring the airwaves, get an idea of logical places that survivalists might be hiding in the area where he could look, etc.
That covers at least generally how I'd go about organizing a local resistance cell and trying to link up, but it leaves the one factor that really
makes the whole thing interesting- how do you convince a submissive populace that the authorities are wrong.
I think in America, a huge part of resisting the NWO would probably be making them look like jerks, because the media will be working overtime making
the resistance look like jerks, and Americans don't change their minds easily when the bully in power is from their party. You have to catch the bad
guys doing things even their own political supporters wouldn't approve of... or just make it look like they did.
Work on surveillance techniques and put tails on cops/guardsmen/whoever is keeping order in the police state and local politicians until you get video
of them doing the wrong thing, then copy the hell out of it and stuff it in every mail box in town over night along with still pics.
And if they don't do anything that offens their loyalists... you can always make it up. Can you imagine what the SS would do to a Nazi Party Member
if there were pictures of a well made-up double for him kissing someone bearing that yellow star?
Well you can pretty much do that to the bad guys in the police state. Figure out what they hate and frame it. Take the corporate-power regime I used
as an example.
You dress up a good body double for a business owner or low level politician who is well known in your area and have what looks like a news interview
going on, then at the end of the interview, have him make on of those priceless "i thought the camera was off" slips...
"These are tough times but America will emerge smaller."
"OK, we're done sir."
"Great, that should keep the morons at bay for another month. I can't believe I had to cancel my weekend round of golf for this PR crap."
Ok, guess that's long enough. Not all of its solid gold, but they don't exactly teach insurgency in school- it's one of those guess your best and
hope you live long enough to learn things.
