True but also, i should have clarified, I’m thinking about America. With so many guns and with militia groups spread throughout, it would be harder to consolidate control vs China and Russia back then. Also, while Mao did bad stuff (cultural rev, great famine), He’s considered a 70-30 in China, like a 70% good 30% bad. Not saying he was good, just how he’s been seen (besides areas like Hong-Kong where they want democracy and all that.) Nor am I saying they should rise up, I’m kinda hobbesian in my views of society lol.
