7. My concern is that when it does go down, will the Oligarchs be dictating how it goes down?

 

In other words, the oligarchy isn't about to let the masses revolt against them when they can orchestrate a civil war within the 99%. Let's say the AA community gets fed up by the mass incarcerations by the Oligarchy and their disenfranchisement from the election process and they rebel against the Oligarchy. I wouldn't be surprised if a certain element of society, with the guns, "helps" the Oligarchy and their militarized police put down such rebellion. Those not directly affected would be encouraged to take sides. This is not a new concept. Colonial powers often encouraged two factions in a country to fight each other to keep them from uniting to fight the colonial power.
