Maybe they were onto something in the Middle Ages…
When the politics change, you can either sit around grumbling, or you can build a medieval fort (ht Talking Points Memo). The latter approach is the plan for a bunch of far-right people in (this should surprise you) Idaho, who are building a “Liberty-Driven Fortress Community”. In case you are wondering how you would fit int0 their community, they give some helpful hints: “Marxists, Socialists, Liberals and Establishment Republicans will likely find that life in our community is incompatible with their existing ideology and preferred lifestyles.”.
From the looks of their fortress, it seems like they are not entirely comfortable with the idea that even if they withdraw (literally) into the confines of their fortress, the Federal government will continue to apply. Man the trebuchets!
