“If they approve this plan, all those folks who will be affected need to do a little civil disobedience. It would be pretty hard to blow up a dam with, say, a thousand protesters occupying it.”
Really? Don’t think so...I think that it would collapse more quickly, if anything...
Well, what I meant was, it would be much harder for them to issue the order to blow it up, and have it be obeyed. Even if they did, it would be a PR nightmare for them, either by having to violently remove the protestors, or moreso if their actions resulted in deaths.
We need to start resisting these overreaches, since we can’t rely on our representatives or the courts doing their jobs anymore, so it falls to the citizens. Before we break out the more violent means of resistance, I think we are bound to attempt the more peaceful means which have proved extremely successful in recent history.
Not if they "Occupy" the ridge lines near the dam. Since that's wild country, they'll need their "hunting rifles" to defend themselves against the bears and cougars. You know the ones with the ten power scopes and calibers like .308, .338 and .50. :)
