3. This is not Germany. If democracy fell, they'd have to hold power

against the will of a majority of the people. Not a happy thought. This isn't the 1920s either. Most modern communities could be brought very promptly to their knees merely by blocking the roads and turning off the water. How about power? Most subdivision homes would turn into ovens in the summer, and many would be unsustainable in winter also and have to be abandoned. Possible resistance leaders could be identified and picked up before they even got started.

But at least losing our rights would clear up a lot of the fog of stupidity in people so spoiled by a lifetime of security that they haven't even begun to realize what they have to lose. But also with deeply inculcated notions of individual rights and freedoms Germany's culture had never had a chance to develop.
