Who Among (You/Us) Truly Believes The "People" Would Actively, and Strenuously, Resist the Imposition By The Right of Martial Law?

I doubt that obese, diabetic, drunk, sugar-sated, fat-enlarded Murkins would trade a single chinchilla of their comforts for the whole array of their (putative) liberties.

If you have a contrary opinion, I would be glad to read it, and the reasons
