Several books recently I've listened to had different starts with the same outcome. I didn't plan to listen to this specific outcome but that's how it played out.
Hypothetical question here. What happens if the result of whatever happens results in tyranny? The Constitution being suspended? In one book everyone just accepted the fact. Another left it hanging just as martial law was being implemented. Do you think people will just lay down and take it?
People need to remember History... I'm not getting on any Train!
I would rather go down fighting than in a Gas Chamber.
Consider Soviet Union. People fought hard against the first revolution in 1905 and fought harder in second revolution in 1917, tyranny won because people were starving and desperate, tyranny continued and many gave up the fight because everyone was given work in exchange for keeping quiet and not questioning the tyrant. If anyone questioned, their whole family, including kids simply disappeared, forever or sent to Siberia with just clothes on their backs.
It is easy for any type of tyranny to thrive, so many possibilities.
PS just finished an ESL accent coaching class, my mind is now blank, I hope what I wrote above was written in English.
Guerrilla Warfare. The communist perfected it: Cuba, Vietnam, China, Latin America. Books are written on the subject. Some of them are training manuals.
inceptor you already bought the library but for those that want to check out these books and don't want to buy the library then still go to the trading post/classifieds and scroll down to my Electronic Library thread. Then scroll down Military Files section and then to Guerrilla Warfare where you will find a good list of books by name on the subject. If you look hard enough on the net you will find all of these on Adobe PDF.
Or you can just make it easy on you and make me happy and buy the library.
Probably my favorite is FMFRP 12-18 MAO TSE TUNG ON GUERRILLA WARFARE. I have the civilian book hard copy. Its written by a Marine general and his widow gave the Marine Corp permission to make a manual out of it. Mao knew his stuff and gives many observations and opinions on guerrilla warfare.
The US military gained experience fighting guerrilla warfare in Vietnam and then in the Middle East but does not have much experience conducting it (not including Special Forces).

Sorry, @TG, you must be tired. You wrote in Russian. So I wrote this in Russian also to make it easier for you to understand. I hope the on line translator I used worked well.
