I said effective complete lack of laws. Without a police and court system capable of enforcing them, they're not laws, they're polite suggestions. A law against, say, stealing is useless if it applies to everyone in society except for the thieves. There is one obvious law everyone should follow. Do...

Will this be fixed or does everyone need to revote? Edit: that is, will votes cast before the resets be re-added automatically? People will have to cast their votes again. They've been lost.

Er, let me stop you right there. Anarchy is the absence of rulers and leaders , by the meaning and the very etymology of the word. Not laws. Many anarchists still advocate for good laws, they just want individual autonomy. In many anarchist schools of thought, laws are achieved by collective enforc...

Anarchy is the effective complete lack of laws, because there is no government capable of enforcing any laws. This includes economic laws. Without laws, people will do as they wish, and wealth will accumulate in those who can earn it through their own ruthlessness, without regard for whether they &...

Not to be a stickler or anything, but Left-Wing Utopia is more along the lines of Parecon or Left Communism . Moving towards more economic freedom gives you libertarian socialism, mutualism, and Anarcho- varieties of leftism. And no, Anarchy is not neo-liberalism. At the very minimum it would be Ind...

Do we report inappropriate tagging here, or should I file a GHR? I already have the filter set to block campaign TGs, but I keep getting them unmarked and it's really annoying.

It is my delight as a three-(technically four-)time delegate to the Democratic Socialist Assembly to be the first to throw in my official endorsement for Caelapes. He has plenty of all-around gameplay experience and I've enjoyed working with him throughout the years. Now is the time. Our time! A vo...

I'd say it's a pretty bad sign of the state of mainstream journalism and journalistic ethics that some of the most honest, accurate, and hard-hitting journalism is coming from comedy shows rather than the actual news. For awhile, my main news sources were, NSG, the Daily Show, and the Colbert Repor...

Two Party system sucks yes. By extension, FPTP sucks as well. It's very limiting and undemocratic.
