Persistence Society - Government

    Quite nice to see a forum like this on the net where there is actually a category called "think tank" and that category is not completely dead. I have written a bit about government and I would very much like peer reviews:

    Persistence Society Introduction

    Articles (Ordered newest first ):
    My writings are primarily concerned with what I call a persistence society. I imagine if you've read books with the idea of "natural law" or the idea of social contracts, you'll be interested in reading my short writings. The first link is to the introduction which serves as a starting point for getting into the idea of society and government; so, it itself doesn't go much into society or government.

    I think you misunderstood. The introduction promotes a sort of adhocracy for building think tanks for a persistence society - although i don't explicitly say this in the intro. In terms of actually building the persistence society, there would need to be considerations of the pros and cons of bureaucracy and adhocracy. There are certainly benefits derived from having stable and certain structures in a system and there are certainly downsides to adhocracy - chaos being just one.

    I would prefer constructive crtisicism instead of useless labels. Frankly, I read Future Shock many years ago and this is the first time I've seen adhocracy brought up since then. I guess I need to get out more hahaha.

    I guess I did misunderstand. So ready with my battle gear I'll smash anything that moves. Ahahahaha. However, on your explanation, I should note: my concern isn't American Politics and History. The article on the constitution could be excluded and I would not care - it was primarily included to tackle the major hinderance to thought that a lot of those in the US, who would otherwise be thinking on the topic of society and government, might have.

    How do we produce and distribute pornography in this hypothetical system?

    I'm not sure, but I'll bet Nick Kristof has some ideas.
    Drop him a line?

    I might be able to come up with a solution to that, but I fear I am in a state of permanent laughter as a result of the question and can't form any more complex systems.

    Btw, the login state on this site is not shared between subdomained domain and non-subdomained domain. You might want to wild card the cookie.

    To elaborate, change Host value from "" to "" so as to share the cookie between domain and subdomained for xf_user and xf_session. Just a suggestion.

    Does someone pay you to be so idiotic and childish, or do you just do it for the attention? (rhetorical question, I'd rather you not misdirect this thread any more)
  16. Anonymous Member

    Yes. Many of us are paid a small fortune for the services we provide. The attention? Not at all.

    why would you like WWP to wildcard the domain cookie?

    This thread is not about pro wrestling, its about persistance

    Adhocrat, I am disappoint son. This thread was made in 4/12/2012 and not one post from you. Not one. I was sure you'd make some educated assessment in this.

    Add the video for more emphasis and effect:

    Hangovers are a bitch aren't they? Can't even imagine a < month hangover without wincing in pain.

    ^^Could be that a hangover is cured by picking up where you left off the night before, right upon waking.

    To what point? I read the first paragraph of his first essay. That was all it took to know he was just explaining his personal take on things. I'm happy he has an opinion.

    Now, Paro, the reason i came to this thread today is because I saw you had posted something.
    Now I am disappoint.
    Nothing to see here.
    My educated assessment will always be "Governments are violence and should be banned from polite society in the same way and for the same reason we ban any criminal from practicing his craft."
    The non aggression principle in action.

    Oh, please. you're sounding like a nutter.

    Sorry... I was sincerely interested in your take on this topic and thought you would give us your intelligent and informed answer. I was kind of wondering why you remained quiet on this and what your thoughts were.

    better a nutter than a thug.
    Well, thanks, I think.
    Since his first sentence was a masterpiece of self deception, I decided he may not know much about the subject.
    It's a beautiful day, think I'll got out for a walk. Cheers.

    yes quite.....
  35. capob Member

    So, no one here is able to contradict me? And, this ""Governments are violence and should be banned from polite society in the same way and for the same reason we ban any criminal from practicing his craft."" has apparently become a meme; and, like many memes, it is largely devoid of thought. Don't give me this minarchist or anarchocapitalist crap because you are only showing me that you have an extreme lack of an ability to extrapolate.

    So, it appears the people on here protest merely because there is something that is of immediately annoyance to them; and, there is a complete lack of thought as to how to actually solve problems. And, if I am wrong, give me evidence of such.
