    Well put.

    There are scenarios being discussed. The largest seems to be about fomenting civil unrest in the urban areas, which can then be used to further the governments interest as you've identified. Hopefully, depending on where you reside, there are enough like-minded individuals intent on resisting such tyranny. Around here, they are expanding militias.

    I think I would make sure I had all of my mechanically injected diesels running before the button was pushed and lots of diesel of course, would be a very popular guy

    imho.. the solar flaries are just one ( on the low side ) of things that could happen that might lead to a EOC.. and in an EOC.. then you have chaos.. loss of govt control.. civil disobedience.. etc.

    far stretch.. but within the realm of 'possible'.

    I hate what ifs. There will always be someone or something (N.Korea, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Sun Spots, Opec, Hitler, Gengis Khan, Heads of State with a grudge, Manifest Destiny, Dictators with a wrong idea but force keeps them in power, any other event that affects a region or people). What I see each day are people that don't agree with anyone or anything readying for whatever may come their way by buying up survival gear and weapons at inflated prices and lining the pockets of the suppliers. The biggest disaster I see on a regular basis is the American Political System and the influence of individuals spouting hate and discontent. Fortunately there are enough people with the correct view of what is necessary to carry on and prevail. What is unfortunate is that there will always be the Enrons, Banks too Big to Fail and individuals and politicians in Government that will try to change a persons right to make choices.
    In my opinion the way to survive is live within your means, don't depend on the 401k or the Government to get you through a disaster. Your on your own for a few days anyway. Natural disasters are not widespread and severity is usually dependent on population density not how many states are affected.

    Tis a very bad assumption that the US military would stay with the Federal government. It would not, it would fracture and split. The US Army and Navy lost many officers and men who went south at the start of the US Civil War. If Lee had stayed with the US Army, the war would have ended years earlier at least in a conventional sense. Instead Lincoln was force to fight with a bunch of useless generals until he found Grant, Sherman, and Sheridan.

    Later,

    Are you stupid enough to believe that, do you just want to believe that? Or do you just want attention from telling such a BULL $H!T story ?

    P.S I have been up close and personal to 16 different nuclear reactors.

    It is a hypothetical question posed for the purpose of eliciting conversation--which many have enjoyed.

    When there is a huge solar energy spill, it is called a "nice day"!

    Perhaps you might find this interesting? Shut down power grid? There’s an app for that
