A scenario that is purported to lead to medieval living conditions virtually overnight.

At least it's not Zombies. In fact, if you can survive the initial purge while a great percentage of survivors fight (and die) over the food & water they can find on the ground, you will stand a pretty good chance of eventually returning to civilized living.

As sad an advantage as this may seem to be, the governors will be working overtime to get back in contact with surviving taxpayers.

If I want your opinion, I'll ask you to fill out the necessary form.
