I realized self-defence was illegal the very first time I thought about it. Presumably it had already been illegal for decades.

"You know the "First they came for the ..." warning. Now they're coming for some guy who merely resisted being murdered by communists. If you don't care about that you're either evil or insane."

Are boomers just realizing this now? 🤔

It's not that boomers are particular dumb, per se, but rather: this is how effective propaganda is. Millennials will get pwned just as hard in 40 years. "Medical mandates are communism? I cannot even!" Many shock, much wow. Maybe they'll instead catch onto the fact marriage was criminalized.
It's important to have a church that's 100% separate from the government. Ideally one you have to keep secret because if they realize it exists, they'll outlaw it. The government will always lie to you, especially about what it's doing, and it's a great idea to have a specialist untangle all that for you so you don't have to do it yourself.

I guess your church model was the design basis of democracy, at least the Westminster type. Two factions with the specialist brainpower to tell you when the other is lying. It has to be rotating factions, if its a truly independent actor specialist will just be bought by the state, to remain somewhat independent they have to come pre-bought by the promise of power. Not ideal, but some thought went into the stuff we see failing before our eyes.
