24. That's what it looks like to me, too.

So when I say that we need to think about what we will do, I guess I'm referring to each of us as individuals or small groups in our communities. How will we get through what's coming and help our communities to hold together, too?

To do that requires some perception of what will or might happen in order to prepare for it. But, who knows how it will play out? So we need to imagine what could or might happen and be prepared for it as much as possible in areas of communications, utilities, medicine and health, self-defence fighting, etc.

So, for example, if Trump orders the elections cancelled or invalidated, you know the American people will rebel openly in the streets, and that wiil mean an authoritarian military crack down. Maybe regional losses of utilities. Maybe street fighting back. Maybe a general social breakdown.

Maybe nothing like that. Maybe there will be enough pushback from real military authority that Trump will just flee the country in a private jet.

Perhaps somebody will stand up to Trump in a way that actually makes him back down.

We don't know. So we prepate for the worst and hope for the best.
