These guys really need to shut up

about their fortress. I feel like you could build some earth and cinder block berms, call it flood protection and not raise any eyebrows.

Everyone talking about the Branch Davidians is right on. People who make compounds and fortresses and talk about sovereignty tend to get their doors kicked in. Is it surprising that government hacks don't like anti-government hacks?

They could be enormously safer in pitching their city walls as flood protection/sound abatement, setting up a nice "private school" and a "wildlife reserve", keeping their mouths shut and doing what they want.

I agree, you should have 2 years of food supply, a source of fresh water and 10,000 rounds, but as soon as you tell everyone, they've lost 95% of their value.
