    What keeps me from killing people isn't the legality of it.

    No, I would not participate in The Purge. If my home nation (America) was doing this, I would relocate & apply for EU citizenship.

    If it became global- I'd buy materials from various places, over an extended period of time, & build an underground shelter, never telling a single soul. I would go there at least a month before The Purge. Perhaps even lie to those familiar with me, & tell them I took it as an annual vacation, one I liked to finish out by losing my shit on some poor indigenous person in a far-off land before returning home. Maybe add some classic NF bs about how it makes me feel reborn or something, to make it more believable.
    Pretty much this.

    so i know somewhere out there, there is a statistic that a good portion of times, murders are committed about loved ones or those who are close. do you think you would feel safe with your family?

    It would be like Christmas - everyone would spend all year thinking about it and then preparing for it. Legalised murder would not lead to wanton violence so most people would be unaffected. On a side note: how would they prove someone was killed during the purge and not shortly before or after it?

    As for me I would spend all year determining the sensing types in my area and when it begins try and slaughter as many as I can. Perhaps set up a Facebook group so teams of N's can be better organised.

    My family? Yes.

    With the type of family I would likely have in the type of society portrayed in the movie? No.

    If the rules were changed I would want to participate.

    If those with families who didn't want to be involved, and those without families that didn't want to be involved could exclude themselves.

    And those that did want to be involved could do so.

    And lastly, if I didn't have a family or anything to really lose, then I would join the vigilante team in a heart beat.

    The criminals can hunt me as long as they like, I can take it.

    But now for the first time I would be able to hunt back.

    I'd hunker down during but participate afterward when looting is easier.

    I want to say yes but I can't think of anyone in particular to kill. Maybe the Kardashian family. But rich people could hire a lot of security, so it'd just be the poor killing the poor probably.

    Security would totally kill/rob the rich.

    My mother's tried to choke me before (fortunately I'm stronger than she is/restrained her).

    Still. A resounding fuck no.
