What would happen in the aftermath of full nuclear war?
Would the Government be totally obliterated? Would any vestiges of the old authority survive?
Would there be anarchy? Famine?
Would you eventually see the country fragment into hundreds or even thousands (considering the size of the US) of little fifedoms controlled by local gangs, militias, and warlords? Or would it stay together?
Would people whose ancestors were from the "other country(s)" be hated and persecuted? (E.G. if Russia or China nuked the US, would Russian-Americans or Chinese-Americans be hated loathed and discriminated against in the post-nuking US)?
How do you think life in the post-nuking America would be, generally?
What would you do?
Seeing as the world would still be run by GWB from his little bunker, i wouldn't saty it would be very much different.
I believe things would still stick together, even without a government. The police would still obey their commanding officers and they would still petrol the streets. People would still go to work everyday and money would still flow. In the mean time, another government would somehow be formed.
i think, the majority of the earth would become a desert, with some messed up vegetation. The few people who survived would evolve into some reptilian things, lol.
If there was total nuclear war the world would come to an end, no one would survive. Anarchy cannot exist. Someone will always rise to power and there will always be rules, whether people follow them or not is a different story.
BUT!.. when a nuclear war starts I'll go and hide in New Zealand.
Good old inoffensive New Zealand.
I hear cockroaches are the only living things that would survive in a nuclear holocaust, something about their antibodies?
I think they are not the ONLY living species that would survive but Roaches can survive just about anything thrown there way. Thats why they've survived for millions of years.
But no matter how much they evolve they'll never develop a resistence to the bottom of my shoe >;D
someone's been reading too much King's The Last Gunslinger.
