That was a good read. I'm a bit confused though.

    Their resistance to authority dates back centuries, to when illegally distilling whiskey was big business and eluding federal agents was a crucial part of the enterprise.

Is this referring to Prohibition? Prohibition in the U.S. existed from 1919-1933, in which case "centuries" is an inaccurate word choice. So am I missing something?

Well written, though I do think it should have been a bit shorter. All those twists and turns and for what?
