Those moving from libertarianism to anarchism can be comforted that that is looking more like a possibility.

    Great and I just moved from Anarchism to be come a Libertarian….

  2. Robb Allen Says:

    I tried that. Purchased a bowler hat, a pocket watch, picked up a nice tweed jacket and a monocle.

    Then I realized I had slipped from libertarianism to anachronism by mistake.

    @ Robb: Your internets is in the mail.

    But after Anarchism, there comes a Choice: A Dictatorship to “Save the Country”, or an Uncivil War between those who are in the Right and those who are in the Wrong, or a Foreign Power decides to “Intervene” at the behest of someone trying to Stay in Power. But the “Real Question that needs to be asked” (as way too many Politicians have said over the years while dodging the Question) is this: Who Controls the Nukes?

    I hear ya brother.

    Les, my better half is a Captain & missileer in the USAF. She literally has her finger on the button. Who controls the nukes, indeed. I think most are ignorant to that fact, when making their plans for the zombie hordes.

    I’m sticking with my prediction of the much more likely surrealism, rather than anarchism. For example, I expect President Obama to explain during his campaign that he successfully negotiated a resolution to the recent debt crisis that saved the United States! And that his foray into kinetic military action in Libya is a rousing success for everyone involved. And that Syria, despite murdering its own people, is a sure partner in the Israeli/Palestinian peace process. And that Iran, despite the nuclear tests (October surprise for 2012!) is sincere in its claims of using fission only for peaceful purposes.

    And so on and so on, while he looks out over an America covered by a rainbow hued sky filled with flying unicorns whose excrement makes a passable automotive fuel.

    jason, that leaves me with an uncomfortable feeling. (USAF officer, myself). The Navy and the AF have a store of nukes each, and then there are the maintenance and service depots that obviously have nukes present.

    It is my conceit that the professionalism of the US military officer, should legitimate civil authority collapse, would lead them to sit tight on the nukes so they couldn’t be used by anyone. But this would put them in the uncomfortable position of being king-maker: any following civil authority wouldn’t be considered legitimate until the guardians of the nukes recognize them. What if there is more than one? What if the Navy submariners and USAF missileers and USAF ACC each pick different civil authorities? Does the New Parliament of Minot, North Dakota become the defacto supreme legislature of North America because it has the most bombs?

    Based on my (very) limited knowledge of what my wife’s job actually entails, I’d have to agree with you. Missiler’s would harden their site, and sit tight for the long haul. The ‘king-maker’ position they would be in is quite interesting…I hadn’t fully thought of it that way. With megatons worth of kinetic military action at their fingertips, and no legitimate government, how would they know when to relinquish control? A worst case scenario, could pit Minot, vs. Cheyenne, vs. Great Falls, etc. It might get pretty toasty in flyover country….maybe I should start stocking up on sunscreen. If I’m lucky, perhaps she’ll tell me some day how said scenario is supposed to play out….right before she has to kill me.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
