Having chosen supposed quality over quantity, the American police state is very well policed. Except on the street. And except for having enough to do the actual job. There are bureaucrats galore, paper pushers warming seats, advanced college degree holders pretending to be law enforcement ( FBI ), many agents in the federal intelligence services, a huge military officer corp. You have legions of lawyers and court officers and penal officers. There are armed park rangers and armed investigators for the Environmental Protection Agency. But what there isn’t very much of are beat cops and infantrymen. The tip of the spear is pretty small compared to the bloated shaft of hangers on’s and management and pretty uniformed posers. You can give Smokey The Bear a hundred rounds in 9mm rounds for his Glock, send him to a month a year of classroom training as his Academy certificate proudly marks him as a LEO ( or, FLEA ) for all and sundry to see and bask in, yet he really isn’t a cop.
Overall there are very few cops around to keep the peace, nor hardly any soldiers to back them up in times of extreme unrest. The FedGov was founded in 1861 ( taking over the UStates ofA ) and since then has used finances and law as its primary power projection. And has always had a very small military force, as well as a law enforcement one, to back those up. But understand that lawyers are in charge and they don’t like being in bed with the military or law enforcement. Those are bizarre bedfellows and not welcome. As lawyers, they actually see the world through the prism of words and paper having effect, having real power. Of course armed force does, but they don’t see that. These are lawyers, you KNOW their brains are damaged. Cops and soldiers are scary and must be leashed at all times, like a grandma owning a Doberman. Even when the bulk of the male population was uniformed to fight the Brits for world domination, the bureaucrats, lawyers and politicians kept a very tight reign on the few warriors that were amongst them. They were to be feared and controlled. The rich nerd fearing the bully boys.
So, if you are one of the elite, minimizing the armed threat against you by keeping the police and military understaffed and full of girls, or girly-men, and then your money runs out to bribe the populations rabble proletariat, and they start to riot, how do you control them? You don’t have enough cops. You neutered the police/military to control them, plus those you have had been feminized by PC policy and imploding standards. There are no where near enough police to control things. Once words and monetary digits can’t pacify the population, and cops can’t contain them, what is left? Cops have too few in numbers to control the rioters, but there are enough of them to control the food. And, no, I’m not talking about the supermarkets, the targets of the looters and rioters and the Yuppie Scum bitches who eat out every meal and have empty cupboards. Those are ineffectual, just being the terminus of the Just-In-time inventory system. Those will be overrun before the police can organize anyway ( if they can even be spared from the other areas of rioting such as near the rich part of town ).
There should be enough police to control the road networks, in effect bottling the urban population in. And to protect the crop growing areas, the grain elevators, the rail terminals and the wholesaler processing and storage facilities. As well as the trucking system and highway arteries. Enough armed soldiers will be available to supplement LEO’s. An office clerk or truck mechanic has enough training to protect his area of operation with his M4, if only security is required. The cops can be charged with the more intricate crowd control and such. You can keep the entire food system of the country secure for the cost of completely controlling just one large city ( to effectively control it you need to occupy and pacify, urban combat style. Far easier to blow a line of rubble as a primary wall, giving a clear DMZ for air and SAW’s at each road closure or checkpoint ).
There is not enough manpower to control the population IN their areas of occupancy. But you can contain them, keep them from leaving, keep them from traveling. You don’t even need to do THAT. You just cut the electricity and any fuel shipments are halted. You set up token road blocks which act as tripwires. The people get past the city limits and they are targets on the roads, fair game for having illegally departed. You can declare martial law and declare any roads or rails or anywhere out of the city limits off limits. Then, a couple of grunts guarding a rail car line full of wheat can shoot on sight no questions asked. The key point in all of this is that our food supply is in effect already sufficiently centralized so that it is easily controlled. The population issue is not insurmountable. You bring the wraith of the FedGov down hard on the very few conglomerates that control food production, processing and distribution and they cooperate swimmingly and in a week of memo writing, company dictates, troop relocation and reinforcement and you have nationalized the food supply.
It just takes one false flag attack and the justification appeases those involved. All the cross-purposes and jurisdictional infighting assure the Feds that there won’t be a military coup taking over the new system ( local cops, county sheriffs, state cops, state National Guards, federal cops all work for different masters and can’t be co-opted behind the scenes easily ), especially if the lawyers start putting everyone on the new centralized payroll. If travel is forbidden ( and it will be, bug-outters ) and controlled, if electricity is used as a weapon as well as the food, if the feds control purse strings, nationalizing the food supply is one other “kick the can down the road” strategy prior to complete collapse. They have enough troops for that. Fear lack of food, not home to home searches or street by street occupying troops ( although AFTER they control the food those most likely will commence at least on a roving basis ).

I'd prefer one post a day -but- update the comments a few times a day to keep the conversation going. I like to read your interactions with your minions. By having more comments and responses, I bet more article ideas will come to you as the discussions meander down different paths.ReplyDelete
Comments were/are my #1 article idea source. I think I'll schedule comment post times, to alleviate the random factor. I work better on schedules.Delete
We prefer one article a day. Thank you for what you do.ReplyDelete
Somebodies got to be the best :)Delete
One a day please.ReplyDelete
** article on water please (procurement / storage) **
You can put out Bison Books via donation / patrons. Just tell people you'll post them on your blog whenever / if your Lordship decides to.
I haven't done a water article for awhile.Delete
I liked having two blogs. It looked like one was how to and the other commentary. I get enough of a view of the legal system to be ashamed it. What shocked me was the day to day incompetence. College must teach lawyers to show up unprepared.ReplyDelete
The articles were random. Any appearance of organization and method were accidental :)Delete
I like one article then discussion afterward.ReplyDelete
Like this article - works well for me I can easily argue the point about having enough 'troops' of any sort to control the grain producing areas. Around here every single farm has its own grain bins, and most farmers have their own Semis to deliver the grain to any one of a dozen different resellers - and some don't choose to sell on some years, if the price is down and the crop isn't sufficient to warrant it they will sooner let it sit in the bins for another year IF they did well enough the year before.
And each of these farms are MILES apart. there about 20 or so farms in the county (and about as many ranching families). And this is a rather large county, to drive from one end to the other will take over an hour usually. How are troops going to outrun the grape vine to take over these silos and bins? No they will get the farmers by being the only authorized buyers of the production and the only authorized sellers of the fuel and parts that will allow for the farm to produce anything. Sure farmers will sell and buy things on the blackmarket, but that will remain a trickle and mostly local as opposed to what will be sold to/bought from the authorized dealers.
Most of the ranchers and farmers also have their financial nuts in a vice with subsidies and crop insurance etc provided by the federal government- Feds choosing to drop those things wouldn't spell immediate financial doom but WOULD mean that risk of a single bad harvest doing in a farm would be far far higher.
A single control on fuel and everything else falls into place very quickly.Delete
