I think that we don't have to physically fight yet. We're so interdependent and globalized that if enough people simply stop engaging with capitalism, it will crumble and take most governments with it. Sure, some will get ugly. But I'd rather deal with a severely weakened few rather than all of them at full strength. I've been preaching that we need to mass drop out of society and regroup in the Grand Canyon for a while now. It can work. It'll take some planning and fairly minor effort, but we can easily do it. I also wrote something to get people unified to make this work: https://www.change.org/p/donald-trump-a-new-declaration-of-independence
I love your idea, especially with its nonviolence, but I think the Grand Canyon would be slightly inaccessible for most people. What if other rural areas around the world with many natural food sources were set up?
It's not about accessibility, it's about survivability. The planet is about to throw a screaming fit to get rid of us, and our best bet to outlast it is by holing up in the most stable place that we can find. The Grand Canyon is it as far as I know. Now, that's not to say that I'm ruling out other sites, but I am saying that there's a lot of requirements to meet. Natural food sources, fresh water, drainage, natural shelters and some kind of protected status by the local government to keep us from getting chased off to name a few. If you find anything suitable near you, please tell everyone that you can find and organize locally. If you can't raise a group of at least 50 people, I would sell most of what I have, and skip out on bills and rent that month and use that money to evacuate. I know that sounds drastic and maybe crazy, but with the way that things are going, it's going to be necessary very soon. I give it a year, tops, before a global recession triggers on its own.
