ON THE MILITARY’S ABILITY TO CONTROL A REVOLUTION
Of course I’ll disagree with him, and so will anyone who looks a the locations of the troops, their numbers the BIAS of those troops, the numbers of the police, and first responders, the size of the territory, the number of worldwide assets that have to be protected from hostile external factors, the fragility of the system, and the success WORLDWIDE OF EVERY 5GW revolutionary force. Look at Syria, the Arab Spring, Yemen, the problem Iran has, turkey had, the fragility of the american grids, the dependence of urban underclasses on availability of cash, food, and digital transfers. The zero savings of the population…. I mean. the entire american experiment is dependent upon maintaining economic velocity that we currently refer to as just-in-time production and distribution due to plentiful information and extremely low cost transportation. There is very little electricity, heat, food, water, and such in the supply chain. Especially if actors function in winter, entire cities can be depopulated in weeks. I mean. It’s not like it takes millions in the streets. Man-on-man warfare went out with napoleon. Industrial warfare went out with the 1990’s. Today it’s just ‘break some infrastructure’ and let population density and the fragility of the supply chain do the work of turning people into rabid animals the male underclass of which will prey on the rest. As an example, one building can consume the fire departments of multiple cities. What if in the same city someone started 100 of those fires? What if that were done while breaking hydrant heads and losing the water pressure to fight the fire? Everyone thinks of millions in the streets but what I learned in ukraine is that 100 people can do all the fighting and just fall back into those people in the streets, in homes, in workplaces, and the state cannot pursue them. I mean, I am not the only person who has studied enough on this subject to make these statements. The military can ONLY concentrate force. There are only 2m. Of those 2m who will sympathize with the state if we offer a solution that restores military influence in the state, and improves the conditions of the soldiers? So the question is, not whether you have some ‘spastic’ uprising. The question is whether you position demands THAT PEOPLE WANT ANYWAY and drive those demands such that the state resists, but he military and police AGREE WITH THEM.
