Poll question: Suppose You're Living In A Full-Blown Facist State
Advertisements [?]
Let's call it "Acirema."

Acirema is led by a cabal of militaristic elites. They control the media, they impose curfews. "Elections" are a complete sham and everybody knows it. They spy on citizens and punish those who speak out against them by declaring them an enemy, incarcerating them indefinately at converted military bases, and have been known to torture confessions out of people. The poor waste away and everybody else who is not a "friend of the party" becomes part of the underclass.

There is a loose resistance movement, but nothing's really organized and there is no unified front against the opressors.

You're pretty sure you'll be detained any day now. What would you do? READ ALL THE RESPONSES BEFORE VOTING
