    Default Revolution (TV Series)

    Just a quick opinion survey, The new show is about all electricity stopping and the ramifications on society.

    It is set 15 yrs after the "Blackout", govenments have collapsed and Milita control what was america.

    My question, if some clamity happened and all technology ceased to work, do you think society would collapse and factions rise fighting for control???


    Thanks for your time.

    I think it is unlikely happen so suddenly (I like the show btw) - the way it is described in the show it seems to happen within months, I can't see why it would happen quickly since the Governments and military are still technically in place and there are not mass casulties either from the blackout so although there is no power, there is still no reason for everyone to descend to anarchy so quickly and Governments to disappear and new militia to be warring within a short period of time

    Oh yes society would fall apart immediately, not having the Internet and computerized toys, not to mention regular pizza and TV.

    the trouble with that theory is thatthe military/police/govn. would not be able to communicate in real time. which means there could be no cordonation of any efforts etc??

    I agree it would turn to chaos quickly, imagine all the free time that lack of technology would afford you.
    Although sourcing food/water would take priority.

    I'm not so convinced ok so society as we know it would change dramatically and quickly but not end.....................
    few died as a result of the blackout (people that were in airplanes flying, some people driving cars etc) and a lot of smaller towns and rural areas would remain fairly intact, things would be more like nineteenth century maybe but not total anarchy

    If peace and order was kept maybe , just look at how quick these middle eastern countries turn to shit - and they still have electricity.

    You've only made 2 posts, both above, both resurrecting an 8 year old thread, and both promoting an APP.

    Are these apps yours by any chance? And is there some cost involved in downloading them?
