Yes, people who display symptoms of anti-social personality disorder and paranoia who can't handle living in society will live together in a commune as brothers with guns.

No, chances are they end up just like these survivalist compounds usually do.  Remember Waco?  That started over a search warrent for illegal weapons.

Then there was the "JustUs compound", the "Republic of Texas", this guy, the Posse Comitatus loons, etc.

the problem with building an environment like this is that if you dedicate your life  preparing for a war, at some point you're going to start looking for a war to fight. these dudes would almost certainly stop paying taxes, start ignoring laws they don't agree with, and just generally poking the bear.

Ya, that was the spin. The FBI didn't even launch 40mm grenades into the place, until they found the spent grenade cases in the evidence locker. Then the FBI did launch grenades into the compound. Through magic or time travel.

assumes that any post apocalyptic brigands wont use anything that was made after WW1

Power and Water stations right next to each other to make one big juicy target

its actually probably just a company town that will have corporate scrip in the form of gold and silver coins (which is admittedly more valuable than paper scrip)

Pretty much.

I have 80 acres out in a fairly isolated part of Alaska. (not many neighbors, but still on the road system) I would LOVE to build a "compound" and retreat from civilization. Not because I want to declare myself a "sovereign citizen" or out of fear of the gubbmint taking my guns, I am just tired of dealing with people in general.

But yeah...income. Until I save up enough to retire, no compound for me.

This took place during Bush Sr's presidency. This coupled with the 'New World Order' speech sent conspiracy theorists in a tizzy. Then Waco. Oooooh boy did it get nuts with the conspiracies for a bit.

Then OKC bombing. I remember Limbaugh going apesh*t over the proposed anti-terror laws that Clinton wanted to put in place as a result of this bombing. Funny how he clammed up on the laws passed post-9/11.

I'm so glad I'm not part of that nutty life anymore.

1. Nobody wants to attack Idaho. Western, Central, the part that looks like Idaho getting ready to fark Canada...so they'd probably be safe with a toothless narcoleptic with Parkinson's sitting in a crow's nest with opera glasses and a bullhorn.
2. "the American icon of Liberty -- the Rifle". Good freaking lord. You know who else has a rifle as a symbol of their liberty? Hezbollah, Hamas, al Qaeda... We Americans more traditionally use the Bald Eagle, Uncle Sam, Lady Liberty or Blind Justice as symbols of America. (Or you could be weird and use Sam the Eagle, but I digress...)
3. A compound full of paranoid gun nuts, hell bent on protecting them and theirs from any and all threats using deadly force if necessary? I'm setting the over/under at "15 days" before the first "accidental" death or Trayvon-style "self-defensive" shooting.

Now come on, man, you know that's not the case!  It's totally not fair to say that.  The monthly TANF checks that DIA and his cousin-sister-mamma receive can barely even pay for the rent on their double-wide.  There's no way he's got extra money to send to his friends in Idaho.
