It’s never going to get to the point of a stand up fight. The whole “standing your ground” vs running away thing won’t figure into it at all. It’s going to be gradual, every increasing levels of violence and chaos, eventually reaching the point of armed ambushes. Any given incident will be over before fight or flight ever figures into it. Stop thinking “civil war” and start thinking terrorists, bombings, and drive by shootings. That’s what we’re in for.
