    Yes, but revolution is messy. You can think you are prepped and get overrun anyway.

    Think how many people walked out of bad situations in Europe only to get to Germany under control by the winning allies. They think they are safe but then the Russians cracked down and you find you are on the wrong side of an arbitrary line and you and your line down to your great grandkids live in the shithole of east Germany complete with never ending austerity and the fear of the secret police.
