I’m inclined to think this method is uniquelyAmerican.
‘Course, I’m also descended from a LONG line of Americans of Scottish Appalachians, on my Daddy’s side. The term, cussed (pronounced Cuss-ed) applies to all of them. Stubborn, to a fault.
I remember my Dad telling me of a relation of his (aunt/uncle, or maybe cousin?), who had a disagreement early on in their marriage, and resolved not to speak another word to their spouse, ever. The spouse made the same vow.
30 years later, they still were not speaking (all communication brokered through the kids).
Didn’t stop them from having several more kids after that. But without talking.
Now, THAT’S STUBBORN!
Never underestimate the secret delight that thrills the resister to disobey, sullenly resist, and just stand there. It doesn’t require anyone to take up arms or risk their hide going face to face with the Enemy. Y’uns just need to drag your feet until the rage turns them purple.
Couple that effort with the younger and more daring souls disabling machines and transportation of Our Beloved Overlords, and their inability to procure the money and supplies they need to function pretty much cripples their governance.
Through that and other methods of disruption, we can begin to carve out some Freeholds in this country. It’ll probably be the work of several generations, but it would be worth it.
And, don’t forget to take the time to pray.
