"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

This is nothing new.

War simulations and training are standard. I am betting there is not a nation on the planet (with a decent military) that can't pull an off the shelf plan for the most ridiculous scenarios you can imagine. The Pentagon has a plan for a Zombie holocaust and Alien invasion FFS.

Since there is something relatively new in the mix - social media and mass instant communication - it makes sense to revisit and revise the plans.
