It depends on the situation, but I think I can anticipate the way it would work, and roughly what the result would be, because I've had a pretty wide
sampling of how people who don't mean any harm end up helping keep the system broken, including in the Marine Corps and private security industry.
I think American troops will defend a tyrannical government as long as they don't understand it and there's a straight forward way for more over
half of the people to live conveniently (They'll get used to eating steak made out of sewer bacteria once McDonald's perfects the product, losing
their cars, and the end of social mobility, but they've got to be able to buy convenient solutions for most daily discomforts). We Americans are like
dogs- you can do whatever you want to us as long as you fill up the food and water dish and let us know what to expect.
It would make perfect sense to me if what ended up happening in this country is a permanent 10-20% homeless rate and up to 40% unemployment rate with
very few remaining social programs, no food and drug safety, no public schools, a 5 fold increase in the prison population, record corporate profits,
and an unofficial class system composed by a plurality of 8,000 dollar a year people, a minority of 40,000 dollar a year people, and an elite 250,000
a year people... then of course you'll still have the rich doing better than ever before.
What would I expect to happen in that kind of an America? I think NORTHCOM would assist police to enthusiastically crush rioters, spy on dissidents,
and bust gangs (from their perspective... to the people it would look more like randomly killing the poor so they can't get organized enough to
achieve any kind of power).
