The Zbellion plot was a small part of JLASS 2018, which also featured scenarios involving Islamist militants in Africa, anti-capitalist extremists, and ISIS successors. The war game was conducted by students and faculty from the U.S. military’s war colleges, the training grounds for prospective generals and admirals. While it is explicitly not a national intelligence estimate, the war game, which covers the future through early 2028, is “intended to reflect a plausible depiction of major trends and influences in the world regions,” according to the more than 200 pages of documents.
According to the scenario, many members of Gen Z — psychologically scarred in their youth by 9/11 and the Great Recession, crushed by college debt, and disenchanted with their employment options — have given up on their hopes for a good life and believe the system is rigged against them. Here’s how the origins of the uprising are described:
Both the September 11 terrorist attacks and the Great Recession greatly influenced the attitudes of this generation in the United states, and resulted in a feeling of unsettlement and insecurity among Gen Z. Although Millennials experienced these events during their coming of age, Gen Z lived through them as part of their childhood, affecting their realism and world view … many found themselves stuck with excessive college debt when they discovered employment options did not meet their expectations. Gen Z are often described as seeking independence and opportunity but are also among the least likely to believe there is such a thing as the “American Dream,” and that the “system is rigged” against them. Frequently seeing themselves as agents for social change, they crave fulfillment and excitement in their job to help “move the world forward.” Despite the technological proficiency they possess, Gen Z actually prefer person-to-person contact as opposed to online interaction. They describe themselves as being involved in their virtual and physical communities, and as having rejected excessive consumerism.
In early 2025, a cadre of these disaffected Zoomers launch a protest movement. Beginning in “parks, rallies, protests, and coffee shops” — first in Seattle; then New York City; Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles; Las Vegas; and Austin — a group known as Zbellion begins a “global cyber campaign to expose injustice and corruption and to support causes it deem

How about we put the shitasses on a boat and play ‘Sink the Titanic’? You get 2 hours and 45 minutes to figure out how not to die of hypothermia in the North Atlantic.

Well of course why would they train to take out the oligarchs? The oligarchs that insure they get a minimal pay check horrid housing and health are for the few years they work, but then they get picked up by the death squad police departments. All the while americans are thumping their chests at football games and signing to star spangled bombing

They accurately enumerate every single reason why the deck is stacked against the populace, and why they’ve got every right to feel disenfranchised. Then in the next breath basically say, “tough shit, that’s the way it’s going to be”. I don’t care what generation they’re talking about: Fascism is fascism.
What’s chilling is how insidiously rational they are. As if the foregone conclusion is that a dictatorship is where we’re headed for and nobody but nobody better resist.
