    My impression is that part of the fantasy involves "good" soldiers and police officers rebelling against their superiors and joining with the brave resisters.

    This all makes perfect sense.  For there is indeed an imminent danger of autocratic takeover in this country and others-- from extreme right-wingers.

    Psychological projection is not just an unfortunate phenomenon, it's a weapon used by corporate america and their pawns.

      The are careful to not say that out loud, but it is a theme of race war porn like The Turner Diaries.

      That's how they figure their side will get heavy weapons.

      And given the number of white supremacists that have infiltrated the armed forces it would not be all that farfetched.

        in Syria and Libya, so imagine the 'baggers who want Somalian libertarianism in the US coverting all their Ford f-150s into "technicals" / gun platforms
