Direct Military Action
Direct Military Action
What is it good for?
This Interest represents Effort used to strike back, disrupt, or otherwise interfere with the opposition forces using violent methods.
Who among the resistance might support this?
There cannot be victory against the forces which have usurped our democratic republic with the use of peace. Non-violent protests have done nothing but set the resistance efforts back. Violent opposition to tyranny was a core tenet of the first resistance and the founding fathers of our great country. Many of those who joined the resistance called for direct military action against the enemy, and it remains a common cause among them. Those supporting this cause hold coveted Military Victories, won between Seasons and resulting in major gains for the resistance, as their goal.

Who might oppose this Interest?
Many oppose violence since it can lead to unintended casualties or other unknown consequences. However, most recognize on some level that violence against the enemy is necessary- where they differ is in the timing and application of violence. Many would argue against the poor timing of violence as it can turn the civilian population against the resistance and may be ineffectual in some cases.
