Semper paratus

One of the defining taglines of my home state’s lottery advertising is “Hey, you never know!” Recently, they’ve gone to “Are you ready?” While I have met two lottery winners in my life (and the odds say that’s all I’ll meet!), preparedness is… good. And so, we give you this “Survival Guide for Citizens in a Revolution”.”
Because… the revolution will not be televised… it will be live.

While some of you may think “this can’t happen (here, anyway)”… it’s already happening. I note that one evening you might find a vibrant unincorporated municipality across the street from your office… young people utterly non-violent, seemingly diorganized, merely trying to shame money and financial oligarchs… and just a few hours later, you find an otherwise empty seemingly pristine private park crawling with security guards with the not-so-subtle whiff of tear gas and pepper spray in the air…
Just saying.
