Take it easy everyone. We didn't get into this mess in 20 minutes and a 20 minute gunfight isn't getting us out of it either. Just like in any combat situation, there is usually an escalation of hostilities that evoke strike/counter-strike behavior in the participants with each escalating a little further until... it's over!
The reality of the situation is that any "War" with the "NWO" would procede along the same escalation scenarios as any armed conflict, assuming it even evolves into one. I have a sneaking suspicion that just like the revolutionary war, the "Common" man would suprise everyone by fighting curageously - if it came down to that point. There would be ample operant conditioning to prepare him/her for the eventual physical battle.
History, people, history... it has much to teach us... in regard to how these kinds of things get started, how they can be avoided and how people are likely to respond. It is just such a shame that no one is willing to take the time to learn from it.
Strong or not, physical action can be easily handled with today's military technology. It doesn't matter how strong you are when faced against an army that is convinced YOU are the terrorist! Go try it and tell us how that worked out for you.
besides, why fight against something that you cant fight
and, no matter what to do, the only way to fight the people that control every human being alive, would be to make every human being alive wake up
A phobia is an intense, unrealistic fear, which can interfere with the ability to socialize, work, or go about everyday life, that is brought on by an object, event or situation.

I don't know about you, but i sure as hell would not hesitate to shoot someone if i witnessed him shooting someone, and not immediately indicating he is police/agent and it was a "legal" action.
Now if shtf and unrest happens, i might not care anymore if it's a cop, just if what he did was justified for the situation.
IDK if the difference in viewpoints comes from the fact that practically every man is forced to join the military here, so everyone is trained for it, not just "the army"
Of course there are many who would not act like this, just as many would only stand and gasp if someone is assaulted on. But luckily there usually is enough 'normal' people around, who stop a beating if one happens in a crowd.
