Violence and privation

Until they are personally hurting, they don't care. When they get cold enough and hungry enough and their teevees wink out, they will riot. Also, they'll likely blame us for not warning them persistently enough. And also kill us and steal our gold and gunpowder and canned goods.

While the Warsaw Pact may give us reasonable hopes for a relatively bloodless transition, the vast bulk of history is not so comforting.

Sic semper imperia.
