Conventional armies and jungle warfare are so last era. The future is all about urban warfare, that’s why secret military units and militarized SWAT teams are in constant training… to take back American cities by any force necessary.

In the near future, the threat of collapse and unraveling social disorder will be so strong that a constant police state presence will be necessary to maintain order and beat back civil unrest.

Our rights, and our civil liberties will be nothing to stand in their way. American citizens have become regarded as ‘potential domestic extremists’ and urban populations will be tightly surveilled and controlled, with frequent check points and a chilling cold atmosphere for free speech and dissent.

A large segment of the population will be tightly investing in the controlling narrative, as they see it as essential to keeping things together. They will make up the base of power for the ruling state, and its diffuse army of snitches and informants.

The paranoid atmosphere will be bad for the economy, and worse for independent economic activities which will virtually cease to exist under biometric, cashless digital transactions, tight transaction and withdraw limits and close financial scrutiny at banks, regulatory agencies and tax authorities.

Rebellion and resentment among the underclasses will grow stronger, and disillusionment will also be high among the general population.

Chaos and violence will be ready to spread, and militarized police and domestic military patrols will become a commonplace nightmare.

According to civil liberties watchdog John Whitehead reporting for Newsbud:

The U.S. military is making plans to take over America by 2030. No, this is not another conspiracy theory. Although it easily could be. Nor is it a Hollywood political thriller. Although it certainly has all the makings of a good thriller. No, this is the real deal, coming at us straight from the horse’s mouth. According a Pentagon training video entitled “Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity,” that was created by the Army for U.S. Special Operations Command, the U.S. military plans to use armed forces to solve future domestic political and social problems. What they’re really talking about is martial law, packaged as a well-meaning and overriding concern for the nation’s security.

Is the U.S. Military Planning to Take Over America?

John Whitehead wrote about this topic at length, pointing out the chilling fact that the military referred to urban warfare missions as an effort to “drain the swamp.” A restless underclass, roaming gangs, terrorists, loosely-connected bands of hackers and criminal syndicates, along with millions of city dwellers caught up in it.

It is the sad tale that has followed the demise of Middle East hot spots like Baghdad, Mosul, Palestine and Alepplo, in various states of quasi-war where the military will target “extremists” and eliminate them, in even in cases where a large number of non-combatants may reside and end up as collateral damage.

This story is now being transitioned to the cities of America – it may start with riots like in Ferguson. Or it may come in the form of flash martial law declarations to catch a terrorist suspect on the run – like in the Boston Marathon Bombing aftermath. Or it may be a subtle and quiet round-up of dissidents – taken up without resistance by the rest of the community, and taken in on warrants, illegal searches, set-ups and false pretexts.

A chilling time in coming to home to roost in the United States, and the future holds little else but the extreme potential for total violence in major cities, capable of catching up with you, your family or other innocents during catastrophic natural disasters or politically motivated attacks, bombings or riot-demonstrations.

The military will be increasingly prepared to maintain order in the case of economic collapse, widespread unemployment, hunger, looting and angry hordes demanding assistance in the streets.

The U.S. military plans to take over America by 2030.

According to “Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity,” a Pentagon training video created by the Army for U.S. Special Operations Command, the U.S. military plans to use armed forces to solve future domestic political and social problems.

What they’re really talking about is martial law, packaged as a well-meaning and overriding concern for the nation’s security.

The chilling five-minute training video, obtained by The Intercept through a FOIA request and made available online, paints an ominous picture of the future—a future the military is preparing for—bedeviled by “criminal networks,” “substandard infrastructure,” “religious and ethnic tensions,” “impoverishment, slums,” “open landfills, over-burdened sewers,” a “growing mass of unemployed,” and an urban landscape in which the prosperous economic elite must be protected from the impoverishment of the have nots.

And then comes the kicker.

Three-and-a-half minutes into the Pentagon’s dystopian vision of “a world of Robert Kaplan-esque urban hellscapes — brutal and anarchic supercities filled with gangs of youth-gone-wild, a restive underclass, criminal syndicates, and bands of malicious hackers,” the ominous voice of the narrator speaks of a need to “drain the swamps.”

Drain the swamps.

Surely, we’ve heard that phrase before?

Ah yes.

Emblazoned on t-shirts and signs, shouted at rallies, and used as a rallying cry among Trump supporters, “drain the swamp” became one of Donald Trump’s most-used campaign slogans, along with “build the wall” and “lock her up.”

Funny how quickly the tides can shift and the tables can turn.

You know the future where Judge Dredd takes over – the one where he, and everyone like him, becomes judge, jury and executioner on the spot?

The future doesn’t look pretty for freedom.

Modern society is an incubator for these problems. The risks cannot be avoided in large urban environments, and that is where the most trouble is likely to occur.

Smaller towns and rural areas sometimes often have high crime and police corruption, but many of these areas may still offer a much better buffer from tyranny and dangerous disorder that is an accident just waiting to happen to the right megacity.

Since about 80% of global populations have moved into large cities and urban centers, it is clear that 80% or more of the problems will start or gravitate towards there.

Stay prepared, stay clear of cities when possible, and have a serious evacuation getaway plan in place.
