You and Code Toad posit that magical 24 hours.
Ninety percent likely would not hear a thing in 24 hours, or if they did, would not be able to confirm it and get alarmed.
As for illusions, people stockpile those too, for just such occasions.
Again, many here are underestimating the govt.
1 if by land. 2 if by sea.
More than one way to spread the word and it’ll take them a lot longer than 24 hours to sweep even one major city much less everywhere at once.
“Again, many here are underestimating the govt.”
No, we know exactly what the government has; we built it, we were employed by it, we engineered it, we trained it, we supplied it, we created it. We know, you don’t, but we do.
You seem to think government is this magical beast that come from on high with God-like powers. We know otherwise.
10% is plenty.
