This is really interesting from the MacIver Institute. The John K. MacIver Institute for Public Policy is a Wisconsin-based think tank that promotes free markets, individual freedom, personal responsibility and limited government.
I’ll wager there is a group like this in your town. This is rather disturbing.
This is the tip of the iceberg.
It seems to me that it would be prudent for people living in cities to start thinking about this. Consider concrete issues of safety and security. I’m not yet suggesting setting up the claymores.
However, it is better to have given some thought to the ramifications of greater urban unrest beforehand, than to have it run up and take you by surprise. I sometimes suggest to people that they have plans and stuff set aside for a rapid move in the case of weather or some other pressing doom. I remind people to know where they are and what your lines of escape and defense are, in the case that some nutjob comes with a shotgun to your place or work or some shop you are in.
It is better to have thought these things through, ahead of time, especially if you have children and loved ones to care for. It doesn’t hurt to think and plan and even do some preparation.
It is better to have done the preparation and not need it, than it is to need what you ought to have prepared but didn’t.
