Anarchy Regional Message Board
Actually, if you look at the rhetoric of the enfranchised and empowered, or rather, at the rhetoric of their courtiers - i.e. the Koch brothers, the followers of Ayn Rand and most self described "libertarians" and "conservatives" in the United States - they clearly deny the existence of luck or any other such external force.
Instead, they attribute their enfranchisement and power purely to the sweat of their brow as opposed to accidents of birth and circumstance (i.e. luck). If the poor don't have access to power, it's not because they are "unlucky", but because they are not working hard enough, and therefore deserve their poverty and all of the humiliations and deprivations that accompany it.
Emerson's quote is entirely in keeping with this view: i.e. if you're poor, it's a matter of cause and effect: you didn't work hard (cause), and therefore you are poor (effect).
I think I had in mind traditional religious appeals, especially those by which "God" will provide for the faithful. The "invisible hand" of the market fills a similar role; indeed, it is exactly the same appeal dressed up in secularized verbage.
God/luck/the market will all provide to the faithful...you know, if you'll just take it up the backside for Us a little while longer, etc. I don't think its difficult to observe elites dragging this sort of thing around.
Anyway to improve my economy with out empowering the right wing :(
You have to very carefully read issues and support "pro-market" or "economic freedom" options if and only if they do not involve corporate kickbacks or similar corruption. Be prepared to wait a long time for such issue options.
I've been working on this very goal for a couple years now. It appears to be possible, but is very trial-and-error in nature. Use the "analysis" link on your nation's page to keep close track of the specific effects of every issue decision you make. Your nation is very young, so your stats are more malleable; this approach (while tedious and frustrating) should still work well for you.
(also decide what "improve" means to you. For example, by economic is rated as "imploded." On the other hand, my nation is above average for free markets, human development, and equality, and as a "civil rights lovefest" is moderate on economic freedoms. I'm perfectly happy with this, since my goal is a society that empowers the individual, not just elites and their bankers).
There might even be a couple of ways to go about it - my economy is a blistering 100 of 100, but I have good environmental protection, nearly complete income equality, high development and freedom from corruption, and good public health care. Of course, I have a massive state-socialist bureaucracy (91.8% tax rate!) to accomplish all that, and if an oil tanker got hit by a hurricane offshore, my massive bread & butter Tourism industry would be completely fu¢k€d!
Suffice to say, the game is not bad at modeling past human experience with government; but can't really predict the sort of future forms anarchists are trying to invent.
Tax rate actually isnt a very good way to measure government "size." At any rate, I dont doubt for a second that in the neoliberal capitalist utopia, my rent rate would be close to 100% (but thats ok because property spooky magic, etc.)
What is your breakdown between private, state-owned, and government? What personally aim to increase private industry since I assume that worker owned and operated enterprise fits there.
Feel free to vote in the poll I've started in the Federation of Anarchist Communes!
Regional advertising much.
WoW... My region is BIG. Sad I couldn't reform my former nation. But at least I can still be delegate.
