^^^Guilty conscience? The show's storyline is very much about the in-universe politics.
... I didn't know you were a writer on the show but since you are taking personal offense, you must be.
The show's storyline is, absolutely. I was talking about the speculation put forth by the people in this thread, however.
All of the issues you raised (nanotechnology, creating the militia to reestablish order) were things I mentioned in my previous posts. The showrunners have been deliberately vague and haven't mentioned anything about nanotechnology or any other "handwaving" mechanism behind the blackout as far as I am aware, so the criticism seemed directed at me specifically. If it was not, then I apologize for misreading your meaning.
