According to a recent poll by Pew Research Center 27% of people view the government as the enemy.
That’s getting close to revolution numbers. The American Revolution occurred with only 30% to 40% of the population supporting it. (I couldn’t get a precise number. Most historians’ educated guesses land somewhere in this range.)
It’s hard to say what these numbers mean. Obviously, 27% of the population aren’t anarchists. If they were, the government would already be non existent.
Just partisan politics? Angry statists? Would they support a revolution? Is it just rhetoric?
More questions arise than answers. There does seem to be more protests and rioting the last couple of years. The last couple of years, I’ve seen Martial law imposed (Boston marathon incident) and many curfews imposed. The government has been on a full court press the last few years to disarm the population.
The government seems to be preparing for an armed revolution. Over the top ammo purchases. Military drills, drills, drills. FEMA camps. Oppressive legislation to make everything “legal”. Gun control.
The next few years should be interesting anyway.
