Let's look back at our previous excursion into armed civil disobedience...
If you are even suspected of being a sympathizer of the oppossing side, the males of the house will be executed...shot... hanged... the house burned
down and the women raped... at best the more able males will be spared and "volunteered" into the army.
Should you be far enough away from the front, most of your househld goods will be confiscated for use by the current occuppying army... livestock
rounded up... firearms confiscated... personal possessions become contraband to those military figures with less than sincere intentions...
Hunger... mass hunger... anything that can be eaten will be eaten including dogs, horses, cats, rats, etc... unless you live in a "gubment camp"...
in which case probably MREs.
Males will be drafted... volunteered... rounded up and trained for a wide variety of duties
Disease and sickness will abound due to poor diet and strict distribution of medicines... young and old will suffer the worst..
Guerilla warfare and savage, brutality on both sides...Charlie Quantrill, who mentored Frank and Jesse James, cut the ears or fingers off fallen
Union soldiers as souveneirs and strung them together... In Missourri, entire populations were exiled and anybody besides Union soldiers found there
were considered bushwackers and shot on sight... some were even shot... hung.. and then burned... really. All homes and structures in the quarentined
area were burned to the ground.
In retribution, Quantrill's Raiders raided Lawrence, Kansas and held the town for an entire day... raping, pillaging, killing, looting the Union
garrison as well as civilians...
Here in NC, families quarreled and feuded... women exchanged sexual favors for food to feed their children... men hid in swamps and hollers to keep
from being rounded up and forced into service by the Home Guard... towns were raided and burned by fellow North Carolinians... politicians were
kidnapped and killed... children followed feed wagons to collect grains of corn that fell to the ground so they may eat... sociopaths became bounty
hunters paid to find deserters..
In many instances... you were better off at the front than at home..
Now, bring such brutality into the 21st Century with AR-15s, Mini-14s, trucks, choppers... gangs, racial tensions, organized crime...yup.. it would
not be pretty.
It would be hell.
