Joe believes an upcoming tipping point would be announced by the government.

More precisely, that's what Joe believes this side of the tipping point.
On the other side lies the reset, the different rules. It's where we shall discover Joe believes more. Much more. He also believes in the inviolability of his home and of his life and that it is his right and duty to protect them. He doesn't put it in those words, his everyday world doesn't require it, but he's noticed a pattern—surprise attacks with unwarranted violence—except now the attackers wear the better sort of combat gear, and badges, and are sanctioned by the full force of the law. Joe may remember it is he who is supposed to be protected by the full force of the law and it doesn't say "innocent until thrown down, beaten up and perp-walked in front of his family and neighbors."

Your Say

Common thuggery is everywhere now it seems. We abandoned society for it is now mostly animalistic in all ways. It is now, as it's always been, the responsibility of each person to protect himself no matter the costume the thugs don.

A man cannot write a law that ascribes himself lord over me no more so than I can write a law ascribing myself lord over him.

Violations of the human pact, "treat me as you would like to be treated", will be met instantly with extreme over-violence.

As it was and ever will be.

Once Joe gets up off the couch we'll see fur flying. It was Joe and the millions of Joes that went to war in Europe and the Pacific.

I fear that there are fewer and fewer "Joes" out there to stand up to the force of the unlawful rule. It takes energy to maintain clear fields of fire and walk the wire.

Too many idiots believe that dinner comes from the farm wrapped and perhaps precooked. Most are living in the sitcom 'Modern Family'.
