"Assuming the military was part of the tyranny (which it would have to be for tyranny to have any meaning), any rebelling national band of 'patriots' would be told something like, 'you either lay down your arms or the entire city of Dallas, Texas will disappear. You have one hour. If you continue, the next city to disappear will be Atlanta, Georgia.'” -- Collectivist theorist Greg Littell.
Using Bill Clinton’s rules of engagement, we could even include enemy propagandists. Hey, it’s not my scenario, it’s Littell’s. His hypothetical tyrants are vaporizing innocent human beings and leveling cities. They’re the monsters acting as domestic enemies, outside of the restraints (and the protections) of the Constitution, criminally depriving Americans of life, liberty and property. Hell yes I’d shoot an evil mandarin or a thug minion doing that, and any politician, bureaucrat, citizen, solider or police officer worth his salt would be joining me.
