I’ve been thinking of this recently, and strictly out of curiosity because I do not support violence, but what would it take to have a armed revolution in the U.S.? As far as I see it, it would take unprecedented economic collapse and unprecedented mistrusted in the government to facilitate the common man to take arms and act against the government. I believe this would also cause a Civil War based on ideology, i.e. capitalism v. communism. But I digress. What would it take for an armed revolution in the U.S.? Think of it as a civic experiment.
