Quote of the Day
There are basically 5 scenarios in which civilians drastically lose their liberties, lives, and fortunes:
- Communist Revolution
- Civil War broadly defined: regime change/guerilla campaigns/insurgency/ complete loss of order
- Foreign Invasion
- domestic outward invasion/war
- economic sanctions/blockade (externally or internally imposed).
And as we’ve seen recently… there’s a 6th condition:
- Disease outbreak and public health totalitarianism (i.e. Soft Communist Revolution)
Anyone one of these 5 (6) conditions can be caused by or cause economic collapses, and there are numerous examples of all of them resulting in things such as: mass starvation, breakdown in healthcare, concentration camp style detainment of populations, ethnic cleansing, mass enslavement, government by terror, conscription, press gangs, banditry, confiscation of wealth.
Of these 5 however, the worst is number 1: Communist Revolution. And for that reason we’re going to assume that’s what you’re dealing with.
Not just because I hate communists which, yes, but because inherent in every communist revolution are the other 5.
