Okay I have a very good hypothetical for you....

Are you familiar with Wiki-leaks? (it's similar to Youtube in some ways shares breaking news in the form of video with the world) The true story right now is that owner Julian Assange supposedly talked to a guy in the army who had access to the hard drive containing the footage of the murder of about 10 innocent civilians by a army attack helicopter flying over Iraq.

Lets say that army guy was YOU! You found the footage on a computer hard drive, wanted to leak it, but was nervous about it. You weren't sure what to do. but your conscious told you that you have to leak it to the world.

So lets say you talked to Julian and you told him that you didn't want to leak it as you were worried about the repercussions. But instead you told Julian that if he checked at 2:15am on a specific hard drive on your base via the internet, that he would find this video of the murder open to download. Like you were hoping to create some anamnimoty or plausable deniability, to protect you against possible future legal ramifications...

So Julian hacked in, that night at 2:15am just like you told him to. He got into the computer you left open and he downloaded it. Then put it on his website for the world to see. The video went viral around the world. It was everywhere!

Next thing you know TPTB track it back to Julian, and then track it back to your army base as the source of the leak. They find out you've been talking to Julian. And that you told him that you weren't gonna leak the video, but that instead you told him that you might accidentally not log off your computer at 2:15am, which in essence and in no uncertain terms, would give him access to it if he hacked in. So in a slight way lets say you had some level of culpability or responsibility for allowing the video to leak out.

So army Jag figure this all out and tell your lawyer that you're facing 15 years in prison. To make matters worse it would be a super max, allowing you only 1 hour a day to leave your cell. Only 1 visit per month for 20 minutes. And nothing else. Essentially if you were locked up you could either go crazy or die there.

To make matters worse lets say you heard of similar cases actually going threw where the individual did something similar and did infact got the full 15 years in a supermax. Also you worry that as other inmates and guards know who you are, and how you leaked it, that they might seek to harm you when you show up. Part of you worries that if you go in, you might never come out, or you might go crazy locked up in a supermax.

So here's where it gets weird....

So your in bed, it's 1am, your lawyer calls you and wakes you up with urgent news. Tells you that he just heard that unfortunately the Prosecution just pressed charges on you for the leak!!! He says that based on all the evidence there's no way you'd win because you talked to Julian. That they want to make an example out of you!

Also he tells you there could be a chance that they might break down your door in the next hour to arrest you. If not then most likely at 8am the MP's are bound to show up at your door to arrest you. And you won't make bail either.

So based on all this, deep inside you feel like your innocent, that this little innocent idea you had basically blew up in your face now. That you likely could face 15 yrs in prison. Lets say you're single so you don't have anyone that you'd be leaving behind regardless of what you do at this point.

At that moment at 1am your in bed, what would you do? If you don't react quickly your whole life could potentially go down the tube. You might only have under an hour to react and figure out what you're gonna do? (and lets say you're living alone, off the base, in a large city. You have a vehicle, a cell phone, and some cash savings)

Using all your Rambo training, what would you do and why?

(And since your a survivalist then you should have some idea of how to react, shouldn't you?)

Dress up in a banana costume, set up a web camera and begin a dance for freedom streaming to ATS?

I believe that's the correct answer.

Drink all if the liquor I could find, turn on some porn. Pull out my 9 and blamo. Your life would be sheer hell from that point on anyway. 15 years for treason......try punishable by death. Your going to die or be locked up for the rest of your life anyway, might as well go out with a good buzz looking at some naked chicks on your own terms.

sure, here you go

I would probably just wait until Julian stopped laughing and then take his advice and learn a little bit more about the internet and hacking.

(And since your a survivalist then you should have some idea of how to react, shouldn't you?)

As a rational person I would just wait for the MPs but as a SURVIVALIST with RAMBO training I would grab my bug out bag and run out into the hills. Then I would create a log cabin with my bare hands, then I would hunt to get enough food to last me 4 winters. Then on day two I would go around self defending other people to death because I know as a survivalist everyone is trying to kill me.
