This reminds me of an old conversation I once had with my loyal JW father...
...I was still more or less a believer at the time, and I'd basically told him that I wanted to get as far away from cities as possible as soon as "peace and security" was declared.
He was baffled and asked why, and I told him, "Jeezus, Dad, I don't wanna watch thousands of people dying all around me! Would you???"
I don't think the real-world aspect of that had actually occurred to him.
