I think the best way to analysis all possibilities & probabilities, is to forget for a second, about countries - As Marx said, regarding the
dialectics, religion is replaced by politics, which is then replaced by economics. We're playing Eco now folks.
So sure, China, in theory could collapse the currency markets, but wouldn't, because if they destroy the economies of the nations that buy their
crap, they'll be broke right after.
Agree with prior poster, China has it's own serious problems, there's just too many of them & they've never been on the same page - However,
strategically, I would consider one real threat - due to the One Child Policy, there's something like 39 million chinese men who'll be looking for
wives soon, and they ain't got em' - Although there is a surplus of S.East Asian woman, Chinese don't generally take to the woman there, so
possibly, if all else fails, you could start trading your woman for goods, seriously, especially considering, aside from food, the first wars were
often raids for viable women.
Now usually, I'd say, if the SHTF, you could just, use all your guns & go back to a militia roleplay where you take back your own production means,
but honestly, how many of you have a surplus of seeds to get started with, even if you can take back, and then hold the land? Doesn't montesanto
purposely engineer the seeds so they fail after each crop, or without their particular insecticides?
And no offense, but everyone around the world knows you guys (N.America) sold out to be Montesanto's bitch a long time ago - There's a couple of
farmers who've been trying to fight the battle solo, but you guys don't seem to be helping them one bit? Why not take all those guns & militia like
attitudes you have & go and guard the farmers desperately trying to keep the black armies of montesanto off their land & out of there food? Above and
beyond that, you should at least be trying to find out who the lawyers & court reps are who are letting GM'er's win in court, and at least write a
few threatening letters.
I say this, because before you should get to worrying about currency, gold & silver, you're gonna' need something to eat, and to drink for that
matter - And if you're like Canada, you're selling off your water as quick as it can be bottled, and you're letting them sell your most precious
natural resource right back to you.
Blue Gold - it's what's in.
I don't think you should really let you pit yourselves against one another anymore with talks of nations & faith, it is after all, now a world about
money - purely, and without cloak.
As for quelling the protest via martial law, sure, or what would probably be easier, is to pretend Aliens are here, and therefore you have to stay
indoors & censor your communications lest aliens determine your infrastructure.
And as for reinstating your production means, um, yeah, if the people who actually own all those means decide to stay in your martial lawed,
genetically seeded heaven, but the rich generally like not to overpay for things, so I would think, they'll probably take off to countries where
'protection' is a lot cheaper,
which means all the security forces, the homeland, the army, the national guard, blackwater, and the police, will probably get a pink slip just like
And then you'll have a nation full of disaffected, un-unified, gun toting people, with a total breakdown in law and order, and even though you've
got the land & the know how, I doubt you'll be able to organize yourselves long enough to get any crops planted.
Plus, last I heard, your water systems are so polluted with pharmaceuticals, even the shrimp have developed depression.
C'mon guys, no matter how bad it is, you are a shining light, and if you fall down, the world will be in a seriously darker place.
Where's Captain America, at least?
