In America from what I hear anyways it (martial law) is "happening" but slowly and incrementally. TSA, army road checks, re-education camps, residential centers.
Once it gets really entrenched it may indeed be so unpleasant that you may as well leave and not come back, some people already have.

From what I read in "mass dreams of the future" a progressive hypnosis book about 2100-2300,
there will be some "new age" intentional communities functioning with high happiness and longevity along the west coast in various mountaineous regions,
from the Andes to the Rockies.
while the urbanites will be stuck in domes surrounded by toxic deserts.
