Archmage Manifesto: the destiny of communist wizard rule

Postby Black Moon Archmagocracy » Mon Oct 21, 2019 12:04 am

I would like to argue for the supremacy of IRL wizard rule, but first a little bit on its IRL history. In ancient China, the Emperor was a High Priest. What most people may not know is that he is also basically a wizard. See, in real old times he sacrifices to the spirits and reads portents and signs and records the results. On the side of this, even pre-Confucius, there develops the Li, basically, ritual standards, or moral exemplars, such as persons. The Emperor of course, as a sage, would be a ritual master. His “virtue” is considered as setting everything right in the land, just by his moral example. All of this is basically Magic.

As we come closer to the Warring States, however, we get the Mohist school, who try to argue for more “objective” models, called FA, using for instance the sun as an example of a of a benevolent force. Developing out of Li, Fa measures a given thing, and then measures something against itself, to see if they match. The Emperor is to be like the sun, promoting worthies without discrimination.

Anyway, this basically develops, by administrators like Shen Buhai, into an idea for mechanical administration. Basically, the emperor has “names” of different administratators, much the same way, as high priest and diviner of portents, he had a book of spirits with ITS result. The ministers, or their positions, are named after their proposed projects. The emperor takes the proposed projects, and then looks at the reports and finally attempts to determine the congruence between proposal and result, or “word/name” against the reality. The results can direct policy and promotion almost mechanically.

While part of the FA would just become Law, this side of it in particular would be characterized as Administrative Technique, or Shu, with its practitioners called “FA Shu Zi Shi” or “Men of Methods”, with the recommendation that the Emperor shrowd the Shu in secrecy. Modernly, Fa Shu or method-technique can be translated as Magic. Go ahead and look up FaShu.
https://www.mdbg.net/chinese/dictionary ... wdqb=FaShu

A secondary definition of wizard today is, “a help feature of a software package that automates complex tasks by asking the user a series of easy-to-answer questions.” Basically a more modern version of our Fa-Shu. A political system that operated firstly on such wizards, that is, mechanically, or rather computer operated administrative method could, based on this and the history, therefore count as a magocracy run by archmagi, and It’s operators, or administrative-programmers, should don wizard clothing. Much as the Chinese themselves wore no?

Though this could include some democracy, it should follow operationally developed, reality-based protocol, considered of course as intelligently written and correct. This is superior to a simple democracy based on populist shenanigan whose protocol, i.e. constitution, is more in the BACKGROUND, though checked against, and is essentially a development out of constitutionalism, but without the fetishization of it. Many people have suggested that constitutionalism is the better part of the Republican or democratic idea, no?

Economically, one can also direct the economy through decentralized, if modulated, semi self-correcting AI networks utilizing user inputs, bringing us the Communism that was always inevitable, as I have stated in the past. Is this not basically an elaboration of the ancient protocol which measure things against themselves and their original criterion, etc? Why not merge law and programming? Merge administration, economy and programming? Select personnel according to protocols - run it through an AI. Shift resources, checking AI generated performances. Direct robots. Managed by decentralized proletarian programming-administrative archmagi.

Projects and policies can finally be elaborated, together, as computer programs, or Daemons in Unix terms, bringing the Chinese high wizard into a modern, technological realization, and Communism out of the archaic Stalinist model utilizing purely human planning.

Do you accept the feasibility and rule of our wizard overlords, who, if incorporating any programming capable person, could just as well include you? Will you don the wizards hat? You have nothing to lose but your chains no?

Congratulations on making an ideology so niche that not even the 100-axis ideological categorization system can classify it properly.

In my defense, I clearly picked up on the similarity right away. I just mistakenly assumed Newbie McNoposts was new.

You know, I've realized that this thread is peak NSG; the thread OP is truly a galaxy-brained archmage. I mean, we all might as well quit, for not even Comrade Posadas is as based and woke as the thread OP. :p

The Song actually did use gunpowder, or like bomb launchers or some such against the mongols, It just didn’t win them the war. Dem horses and all that. But then, the Romans didn’t use Steam power, so a lack of foresight is hardly unique or a first.

I'm not even being facetious when I say this: sure OP's idea may be highly unorthodox, but it's an idea so unorthodox that it might just be the thing needed to shake up a complacent status quo. Ave Machina, I guess.
