Boris you raised the question(s)

 who exactly are the "civilians"? Who and what is the "authority" over their affairs of which the military is subordinate?

14th Amendment section 4 - The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned....

The civilians would be people, us. If the military is subordinate to the civil, which I thought was the opposite in light of the Lieber code,  who then is the who and what is the authority over the civil if the civil authority does not exist since the emergency (military powers) exist?  I'm thinking if the civilian is always at peace then he/she has no authority over them so the who would be us and the peace is the authority. Thus the civilian authority, existent would be ONLY the people (self governing) and in peace. Anything other then peace is war (belligerent).  If this be the case appears to be simple, the only thing necessary is any alleged adversary has to acknowledge right of set off (exemption) and why it is so.
