As a political system, I don’t think we’ve given angry mobs a fair chance.
Whenever something goes really wrong angry mobs are always who we turn to. When a monster shows up do you think the city council is going to be able to stop it? Bullshit – it’s the angry torch carrying mob that gets the job done. You can’t even expect the government to be able to find that many torches on such short notice, much less use them to scare off a monster.
Do you suppose Frankenstein would have been chased off by a wimpy ‘non binding resolution” from congress? No. It takes torches and farm implements to do that.
Plus, if we did ever switch from being a democracy to an angry mob for the first time I’d want to take part in the government. Being a part of an angry mob seems like it would be fun as hell.
I’d carry an axe, I think. (If you get to choose. I’m not 100% sure how this works exactly) Most people seem to go for torches and pitchforks, so if I had an axe that would make me be sorta like a special forces unit.
I thought about a chainsaw but mine is electric, so you’d either need to bring a lot of extension cords with you or they would need to lure the monster within 75 feet of my house before I could try to cut him up.
And I don’t really want a monster that close to my stuff.
