I suppose it depends.So what's their plan to actually get everyone into the pods? Are they just going to pull a modern day Crassus and force everyone to sell/remortgage their houses by fucking the economy hard enough? Usually their MO is to present a nice face and boil the frog slowly, so I don't expect some heavy-handed Mao-tier shit like mass confiscation of property.
Edit: Has anyone actually read Schwab's book? The vague wording on the website makes a lot more sense if you assume that the reader is expected to have read the book beforehand.
I'm in the path of a nature preserve. This has multiple knock on effects.
1. Lowered demand for houses in the area.
2. Straw buyers will buy up houses to sell to fish and wildlife.
3. Fish and Wildlife will raze the property. Also fill in ditches (to bring it back to nature you see.)
4. Animals on that property will be "protected" because they are on the preserve. So they can tear up your yard as well as farm crops with impunity.
5. Fish and Wildlife will pay pennies on the dollar for the property tax. (Or they have a payment that will go to the township. Both of these are contingent on them "having the funds available.")
7. Town enters death spiral as economic options shrink as well as education options.
If you come out against the preserve obviously you hate nature, bigot.
So some mix of demoralization, peer pressure, economic pressure and general bureacratic fuckery.
