      Sad because true.

  2. I need some particularly dedicated roleplayers. The sort willing to experiment with new forms. The sort who don't sit around in IRCs and post 'boop' all the time like a bunch of tarts. I need long-form posting. I need Euros.

      It's not a new one. I need to recruit new people for an old RP. Or rather, old in the sense that as a franchise it's been alive for five or six years. We're on our first reboot which is a few months old.

       

      It's an NRP, or Nation Roleplay. The effective format is you assume control of a country, which is to say you have franchise over the country's citizens as characters to write out your own stories as your own, or cooperate or compete with others to spin stories. In an effort to compete with OOC politics, I need someone to take up the mantle of a country in Western Europe, otherwise the powers that share it with me are moving towards the notion that Western Europe should just be destroyed within the story itself because no one posts there and this somehow represents baggage.

      You might as well declare war on cultural euphemisms as a whole.

      We're going to keep swinging at this again and again and again. What I find funny is that I guess is that he calls himself a Hegelian but forgot some keypoints about Hegelianism. Namely what I'm thinking about is dialectics as cause and effect and that the negation of an idea is simply a negation of the idea at that time, but it may come back as soon as it finds a new notion (if I read Science of Reason right, or however it's titled. But Hegel's prose is like deleting reading.exe).

       

      I mean, shit. If you want to go off of end of history in the Marxist sense it's only what he viewed as pre-history. Everything after will be born of new material conditions created by communism as a state of human existence.

       

      So now it can't be described as being an end of one stage and of another in that sense since the material conditions haven't changed, if anything it might be argued it's going back. But, whatever; let it because then it can only revert when we realize a mistake has been made and then we make all the automation property of all men and not a single.

  10. Well....

    This is a status update I never wanted to make. But it looks like the time has come.

     

    Things with my parents have escalated. Tomorrow morning, I'm going to lose all access to the internet, these forums, and my friends on here. Other than the occasional snuck message, I won't be able to talk for a long time.

     

    For now.... this is goodbye. I'll miss you all.

  11. You always were a kidder, Steve.

  15. Who is Nyx?

     

    And wtf how much time travel and parallel dimensions are in the mlp comics?

     

    And why da f*** am i taking that as an inspiration?

    1. AaronMk

      AaronMk

      Nyx is the Greek personification of the night. She is the mother of Hypnos (sleep), Thanatos (death). She is married to - or partnered with - Thanatos (death). In Greek mythology she is even more powerful than Zeus himself.

      Politics is invasive everywhere. You can try to hate it, but it's not going to get you anywhere. Even outside the sphere of the federal, state, or municipal government you're going to find politics at the private workplace and the school and so on. It is merely the organization or self-organization of society.

       

      And besides, 98% of anything you'll ever live with in formal politics is municipal level government.

      Leftypol is leftist. Just spread across the entire spectrum. From Tankies who still think the Kulaks deserved it, to Leninists, to Left Communists to Libertarian Communists. Democratic Socialists, straight Socialists, technocratic Socialists/Communists, Communalists, the Green Movement (to a lesser extent), Anarchists, Ego-Anarchists, Anarcho-Communists, Anarcho-Syndicalists, Anarcho-Environmentalists, Anarcho-Mutualists, and so on and anything in between.

      /pol/ is a hackish circle jerk. /Leftypol/ actively hates itself so much it's never even settled itself.

       

      It's actually far better than the original /pol/ and with more philosophy.

  20. So, it's after midnight which means my brain is on overdrive.  It's focused on how government works in Equestria.  Yes, yes.  I know that Celestia and Luna rule over the land and Cadence rules the Crystal Empire, but I'm more curious about the other parts.  Advisors or ponies like Twilight who help keep things organized.  Do they have a concept of a minor jail or prison?  Twilight was more worried about going back to magical kindergarten than she was of anything else when she was screwing up which makes sense when she was worried about the assignment, but made less sense when she bewitched the town.  How does money work in Equestria?  Like is there a stipend for everypony?  If that's so, then what about ponies like Filthy Rich or the Apple family worrying about losing their farm?  Yet, you never see ponies worrying about having enough to get by and most of the time even have excess.

    I know a LOT of these questions can be answered with "Tinsel, it's a show for children", but I'm still curious and it's making me think.  At 1 in the morning which is not conducive to sleep.

      Theocracy implies the church is directly in control of state or government functions. But Ponyville is clearly lead by an elected official, not the local church of Celestia.

       

      I retain my stance that Celestia and Luna doesn't do anything. But are respected by the pony population enough they're informally used as a conduit between each other as a sort of third-party, intermediary party maintained simply because everyone respects and permits it to be so.

       

      In the realm of functionality, it is entirely possible that the local communities of Equestria can keep in check wider problems. Hell, even in the States here cities on both sides of the political spectrum are tackling problems far beyond their scope and size irregardless of their politics stance on global warming. The Guardian has an article on this.

       

      Anarchy in the government sense implies communities that do not need outside governance due in part to their capacity to self-govern. They have control over their own resources and there is a consensus and voluntary action and participation on part of the community as a whole. As it appears to be, Celestia and Luna do not need to tell anyone what to do, they know what needs to be done. The bulk of responsibility in various government activity in terms of internal - or external - security is vested in six ponies based purely on their own merit, and they themselves appear to have no intention to actually exercise power.
