freedom is right. There are too many large cities for govt. to control via martial law in a collapse scenario. They were able to do it in Boston because it was only a single city and the public cooperated. People weren’t hungry and most of the city is considered reasonably safe. The black population is small by big city standards. Post-Katrina, New Orleans was substantially depopulated and so govt. wasn’t dealing with the entire population.
