That day will only come when the shock collar on one of his “loyal” shooters fails.
That’s why I was thinking. Most of this guy’s wealth is probably in banks in digital form. If society collapses, that money will go poof instantly. Even if he has gold squirreled away somewhere, does he have access to it? And even if that gold is on his compound, what’s going to be most valuable if society collapses is water, food, weapons, and fuel, in that order.
Lather. rinse, repeat.
Only his hairdresser knows for sure.
But gee, his hair smells terrific!
Probably referencing, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”
I mean, these types usually have gold, silver, ammo, and food and water stock piled. And you could probably get a group of people to come together to protect your compound. But this alone isn’t enough to inspire enough loyalty that they won’t just take it from you when they are tired of you bullshit.
Set up a roadblock a mile down the road from his compound to prevent supplies getting in. Cut off utilities. Wait him out.
Because he calls himself a Warlord! The other 15 didn’t think of that. So gets to be in charge because he called dibs, basically.
Meal Team Six will be along to back him up.
It’s amazing how the prospective warlord is usually someone who would be challenged by a snapped shoelace.
People have no idea the level of training that the average military person gets. Let’s say that it’s a bit more than the instruction manual to Call of Duty, which is what he’s thinking.
Reminds me of the concept of
wust wasta*, which I can’t otherwise find online (it was in a Lonely Planet guide about the Gulf States.) It’s similar to having “pull,” but the amount one brags about having it is inversely proportional to the amount one actually has.
*Feh! I was way off. Thx @GagHalfrunt
In addition to what @danimagoo said, these sort of people always think that “grunts” are essentially trained monkeys - capable of a surprisingly wide range of quite complex tasks as long as they are properly directed by a suitable leader.
It’s the classist version of the old racist “so long as they are led by white officers” crap.

I know my crowd - and you’re not wrong
Ooh. Bad news for him if even regular soap doesn’t make the list.
