One thing I have been fairly consistent on since february when it comes to ttlravel restrictions related to operation hypochondriac were the border closures. People who forget their history tend to repeat it etc.. Etc..

Well check out some of these civilian life changes of ww2 and let me know what seems familiar yes??

World War II civilian mobility limited

Citizens faced constant question: "Is This Trip Necessary?"
New car sales ended 10 days after Pearl Harbor bombing

World War II civilian mobility limited by gas and tire rationing and restrictions on travel via bus, railroad and airline

(Unlike 21st century U. S. military actions, World War II required drastic changes in civilian habits. This is the first in a series recalling aspects of the war’s impact on the home front between December 1941 and its end 70 years ago in September 1945.)

Compiled by Jim Blount

For some of Butler County’s 120,000 residents, the end of World War II meant they soon would no longer be sent to faraway places not of their choosing. For others, peace 70 years ago removed shackles that had restricted pleasure travel for 44 months. On the home front, personal mobility had been the war’s initial casualty. The first of several restrictions on civilian travel hit just 10 days after Japan’s Dec. 7, 1941, bombing of Pearl Harbor.

For those not in the armed forces, World War II priorities imposed shortages, voluntary limitations and a maze of rationing systems that altered habits and routines at home, work, play and shopping for civilians of all ages.

The severity of the U. S. and allied setbacks in Hawaii, the Philippines and elsewhere in the Pacific and Asia remained unknown or undisclosed when the federal government announced its first constraint "for the duration of the war."

New 1942 model automobiles -- Studebakers, Pontiacs, Hudsons, Oldsmobiles, Dodges, Chevrolets, Fords, Chryslers and others -- were in Hamilton dealer showrooms before the Pearl Harbor attack.

Ten days later, Dec. 17, 1941, the federal government’s Office of Production Management placed a freeze on auto sales to civilians. Dealers couldn’t sell cars in stock without government permission.

If you didn’t own a car, you couldn’t buy one until an unknown time after the war ended. If you had wheels, your mindset became minimum use and maximum care. Preferred alternatives were walking, bicycling and public transit.

Within a few weeks, "Is Your Trip Necessary?" was drummed into the psyche of American civilians young and old. Eventually the slogan extended to tires, oil and gas; delivery services; trips on buses, trains and planes; and traffic regulations. it influenced the use and care of cars, trucks, motorcycles, tractors, trailers and everything that moved. The four-word question appeared on posters, billboards, place mats and in public service ads in newspapers, magazines, radio and movies.

Four word buzz phrase??? Ahhh you mean like "we're in this together"

There is more including this lovely story with some very familiar accounts i will emphasize now.

How the World’s Only Feudal Lord Outclassed the Nazis to Save Her People

on July 3, 1940, a lifeboat arrived at Sark’s main harbor. The Germans had arrived—....
Two officers, draped in dark green, introduced themselves and told Dame Sibyl that they had come to establish some rules. There would be a curfew at 11 p.m.; no groups larger than five were allowed in the streets; all pubs were to be closed; all arms were to be confiscated; and no boats were allowed to leave the harbor.

For a better understanding of some facets of civilian life during world war 2, I suggest reading the linked stories. Admit it or not, we are simply repeating our history during modern times. In an age where the lies and deception are actually known To us and even codified into law, its disturbing that we have forgotten what obvious conflict looks like.

Let's just get this out of the way right now.

Oh no, putins puppet, mentally ill, stop trying to murder my grandparents reeeeee!!!!!

I have been saying for a while now it feels like 1939 again , i think we are in 1940 now the early months of what some authors described as the false war .

Now instead of bombs it is weather bombs that are being dropped

In the conclusion portion of this report, the Security Council devotes a large amount time discussing the Nobel Prize winning American physicist-chemist Irving Langmuir—the inventor of cloud seeding who created the “Weather Weapons Of War” used by the United States since the 1950s—a discussion that shows Security Council Members being concerned that the Thor Weather Forecasting Supercomputer has been recently updated to include research findings discovered by the Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute (PNPI)—an actual gobsmacking discovery showing how Russia’s boreal forests regulate the climate of northern Asia—and whose “simple physics with far-reaching consequences” describe how water vapor exhaled by trees drives winds: winds that cross the continent, taking moist air from Europe, through Siberia, and on into Mongolia and China—winds that deliver rains that keep the giant rivers of eastern Siberia flowing; winds that water China’s northern plain, the breadbasket of the most populous nation on Earth—but if deliberately manipulated by cloud seeding, could inundate Communist China with enough rain to flood its major cities, destroy its crops, and wipe out its industrial base—and is exactly happening in Communist China at this very moment.

I can remember being gobsmacked at what civilians were given a week to live on back then when i was shown my grandparents ration book and how it dragged on until 1958 in the UK

You forgot victory gardens it was your patriotic duty. People pulled together, loose lips sink ships, Driving and riding alone was tantamount to riding with Hitler. Scrap drives, a country united. WW3 will be a county divided.

Thats because this time the war finally made it to our doorstep. They jumped the backyard and are all up in the house.

Loose lips.... That explains the STFU and obey masks I guess.
