... shall not perish from the earth

Some Guys want to build a fortified town out in Idaho.

The Citadel Community will house between 3,500 and 7,000 patriotic American families who agree that being prepared for the emergencies of life and being proficient with the American icon of Liberty — the Rifle — are prudent measures. There will be no HOA. There will be no recycling police and no local ordinance enforcers from City Hall.

These guys are looking for a solution to this problem: that a nation conceived in liberty, then run by a pack of vandals for their own selfish ends, cannot long endure. 

The bill is going to come due, the piper will want to be paid, a lot of somebodies are going to find themselves odd man out in a game of musical chairs.

Nobody wants to be 'it' when the music stops.

Collecting a few thousand people in a single town is the wrong answer.  What you got there is a place just begging for Federal attention and if things are going the way these guys expect the last thing you want is the FBI knocking down your door with a tank.

The way of the future is, yes, like minded individuals coming together.  But using discretion.  Networks of interest over the internet.  A few guys here, a few there.  Establish trusted friendships with this fellow down the block, that dude in the next town over.  Bob is a nut about reloading.  Kevin knows crypto.  Samantha programs drones.  Jimmy can grow anything.  Roberta is a nurse.

John Robb calls these resilient communities.

If the state is going to wander away, it won't go quietly.  Better a live, prosperous, and discrete network than a militant stronghold that will be smeared into the dirt.
