Ecuador: TSHTF

If "the news" is to be believed, Ecuador is experiencing TSHTF-level chaos. 

Mainly because two gangs-- freelance crime gangs and government-- are fighting each other and the ordinary people are in the crossfire. That's not a situation I would want to be in!

The only thing worse than (freelance) criminals running amok is when government responds to criminals running amok. 

I wonder what the Ecuadoran government does about ordinary people defending themselves from the bad guys. Does it respect this natural human right? Or does it, like all political governments, frown upon such things (even if it sometimes allows people to get away with it on a case-by-case basis)?

Government makes every bad situation worse. In Ecuador and in America.

If you want to support what I do, you will. If not, you won't.
Thank you.
