In certain circumstances outside the US, civilians are
obliged to accommodate members of the armed forces.
However, there are conscientious objectors in all societies
and there is a precedent for creating public facilities for
people with a particular set of values, such as Orthodox
and its eruvin, which enable them to observe the
Sabbath as their understanding of the Law allows.
There has been a tendency for like-minded people to live
in particular areas. For example, I live in a neighbourhood
with a lot of Quakers, and I can also think of Jehovah's
Witnesses who live near their Kingdom Halls. This kind of
thing happens all the time in both religious and non-
religious circumstances. Haight-Ashbury and Christiania
also spring to mind.
I propose that such areas be enclosed in a Roman testudo-
style arrangement of shields to signal to troops that
billeting is not a legal option in such neighbourhoods. In
return, the residents will make no attempt to defend
themselves against any other invasion or make any
demands on the external infrastructure or society,
including military protection.
||Clearly identified areas as having been decontaminated of
all references or presence of Trump scum would also be
helpful for normal people. Hopefull one of these will be the
entire UK, as The Government here debates keeping him
out for his racist hatred mouthings, following the most
massive spontaneous petition ever delivered to the Houses
||Yes, I am also from over here and I signed it. I envisage a situation
where Corbyn is PM and Trump President, and wonder what that
would be like.
||Incidentally, one potential problem with this is that it's a little like being
protected by herd immunity but abstaining from vaccination, at least
theoretically. The community could still end up protected even if its
philosophy wasn't universally valid. Hundreds or thousands of
kilometres of military protection would still be in place, unless the
neighbourhoods concerned were on the coast or small islands.
||Corbyn is no better - a total retard who wants to see statues erected of dead sectarian terror psychos like the moron Bobby Sands. Trump and Corbyn are equals in the intellectual bottom feeder's league table, as far as I'm concerned. Boneheads of a feather, flock together.
||It's more a question of spectacle than political allegiance.
||Hold on. This is just a riff on "Unlimited winDshield
wiper fluid", isn't it?
||I see a conspiracy behind every conspiracy.
