mentions a bill
proposed by Wash state legislators.
The four co-sponsors are somewhat bipartisan and varied:
is a standard Sorosian leftist.
is a firmly pro-life Repooflican.
is a Gaian.
is a Gaian and tech-tyrant.
simply deletes several nearly identical sentences from the state's Emergency Plan rules. These sentences were added in 1984, removing Nuclear from the requirements of planning. 5936 restores nukewar to the list of emergencies.
Current purpose is transparently obvious. Along with Earthquake Drills and Custody Dispute Alerts and Tsunami Drills, we're going to resume good old Drop And Cover. We must be MAXIMALLY AFRAID AT ALL TIMES so that Our Most Nobel** Leaders can gin up a frothing rabid rage against RUSSIANAGGRESSION RUSSIANWIKILEAKS RUSSIANMEDDLING RUSSIANHACKING RUSSIANINTERFERENCE.
More interesting question: Why did the legislature add those EXCEPTIONS in 1984? That was not a calm time by any means. USA STRONG and Russia were in a notably hot spell of the Cold War. CIA was sabotaging Russian oil pipelines and CIA was running Osama against their puppet regime in Afghanistan. Anti-nuke groups run by CIA with fake Russian identity were highly active, stirring up the same fear we see now.
Why was the exception ADDED during the previous anti-Russian fever, then REMOVED in the current anti-Russian fever?

Later: Found the 1984 revisions
which make the purpose clear:
At that time the monsters felt that NO PROTECTION was the best way to maximize fear. Now the monsters feel that Drop And Cover is the best way to maximize fear. The actions are contradictory but at least the purpose is constant.
The 1984 change was based on a proper understanding of human behavior, and was part of a long nationwide drive
against Civil Defense. Deepstate figured out that shelters and Drop-n-Cover instilled a sense of confidence
which made normal Americans insufficiently fierce. Deepstate needed CORNERED and VULNERABLE people who are more ready to support a pre-emptive strike. The current proposed change, based on a delusional misunderstanding of the 1950s and a delusional misunderstanding of human nature, moves back toward confidence and complacency, which actually fails to fulfill Deepstate's purpose.
