This is the path to a lasting peace:
You can stage your show elections. I will ignore them. You can keep your oligarchy. I will keep my guns. And I will not consider giving them back until you willfully dismantle your oligarchy so I don’t have to shoot you one day. Your fear will guide your actions to ensure things never get so bad as to provoke a revolt, and we all live peacefully and happily ever after.
Technological means to prevent encroachments are the only things that actually work.
When we get practical teleportation and invisibility is when their power is totally shattered.
I see great things in the future on all these fronts.
