"The government asks us to behave like dependent children at exactly the moment our best adult skills are demanded of us."

Just one of many statements she makes jumping out at me.
This one synopsizes the situation in one sentence.

That said this whole thing reminds me of the early 80s. Reagan's just been elected and is really shaking cages. Particularly Communist cages.

America's Hollyweird scum & scum from abroad go into high gear, vilifying RR & his effort(s).
Two productions ideal for demonstrating the smear are: The Day After by ABC {spit}.
The other's a BBC production titled Threads.

While both films attempted to portray what'd happen to society due solely TO RR's course, in hindsight beyond laughable, they also accomplished depicting the utter chaos of a full nuclear exchange unlike anything before, too.
Images one could really connect with, the desired tool of propagandists having a viable use for perhaps the first & only time? LOL

Nuclear or natural disaster, what's the difference if everything we've come to rely simply no longer exists?
Moreover while The Day After is nearly comical in many ways aside from visuals? Threads does a pretty damned good job showing what the government's role will be in such a disaster, and, how the governments will get every surviving soul to toe their line.
Even if Wolfe's survivalist issue has been addressed, many times, before? It ain't pretty.

Good topic, my friend.
BTW, curious: what part of the republic you live, now? Rural WI, here.

Ping me anytime to CWolfe's stuff, OK? TIA :^)

Claire is a fairly regular contributor to Backwoods Home along with Masaad Ayoob. It’s worth checking in there from time to time.
