By the way, I am not totally sure how close this is to being the mainstream "conservative" position in the US. It might be popular enough to start a civil war, which does not require anything like a majority to begin.
The Shining Path never had much popular support, e.g. just guns, assholes, and a place to hide. That is enough for a small number of people to cause tens of hundreds or thouasands of deaths, fuck up an economy, and lead (ironically) to vast government abuse.
I have been worried ever since early 2016 that I might have to flee this country to save my children (some of these "patriots" would see my children as an "act of genocide")
