LOOKING AROUND THE WORLD, THE QUESTION IS: “Am I prepared if this kind of turmoil ever comes to my doorstep?”

I got asked by a big TV production outfit to consult on a series about a second American Civil War, but had to turn ’em down. But I wonder what a popular-style revolt in the U.S. would look like? The U.S. is much less centralized than countries like Egypt, Venezuela, or Ukraine. I don’t think mass protests in the capital city are the template. I wonder if we might see something like the Fuel Protests that nearly brought down the UK government a while back. Or other forms of out of doors political activity as a lead up. At the moment, we’re certainly nowhere near that, but nonetheless I’d say we’re nearer than we’ve been in quite a while.
