Heyyooo. This is Kincoboh reporting in. I'm leaving this foreign affairs outpost here. :)
Coffee at the beach.
And don't have any kids. It's only sensible. *nods*
I'm going to have to assume those kids were friends from a previous playthrough of the Game of Life ;)
Last time I played Life, I had 15 kids. Then I played Oregon Trail, and they all died of the teeth.
Makes you think.
Makes me wonder what would make someone voluntarily erase their memory before joining the game again. Seems the only real reason to me would be when the game got too easy and you just wanted a real challenge ^^
There's some absurd levels of political freedom in this here region. The Singular Multitude approves.
The Singular Multitude strongly encourages all World Assembly members of Anarchy to vote FOR the current General Assembly resolution "Repeal 'Living Wage Act.'" The Living Wage Act subsidizes and supports the prison industrial complex by providing an exemption to its living wage requirements for prisoners -- the victims of forced prison labor are NOT covered by the Living Wage Act. In this way, the Living Wage Act serves injustice by providing a perverse incentive for states to further criminalize the poor and other marginalized communities in order to further expand the number of people falling under the prisoner exemption.
Condemn the prison industrial complex and defend the poor and marginalized. Vote YES on "Repeal 'Living Wage Act'" now.
Do you see merit in also opposing the most likely replacement (see here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=351867) on the same grounds? That one contains very similar language, though at least it does limit the prisoner exemption to those currently incarcerated, rather than opening the door to a permanent class of post-felony underpaid near-slaves. From a narrowly - ugh - political perspective, I imagine far too many voters still want the sweet, sweet taste of free prison labor to pass any bill that takes it away. The point is worth raising, though.
I knee-jerkedly voted against the repeal just prior to what the game described as my "seizure" of "power" from the able comrade The Anarchist Confederation of Anarchadom - after all, relatively few real world countries guarantee their inhabitants as much income as what the target resolution mandates WA states ensure for theirs. All opinions welcome.
Of course, the state and its patrons need only expand the list of activities warranting incarceration, and the "limitation" is easily avoided.
The Singular Multitude has read the proposed replacement and, pending discussion and persuasion, is prepared to oppose it for reasons already tendered. It will grant that the specter of all labor being reduced to the prison yard is a mostly academic -- but very much valid -- critique; the inclusion of apprenticeship (and, presumably, of so-called "internships") poses a far greater problem. It is not difficult to imagine an employer being all too happy to redefine it's meager offerings as being "educational" in nature so as to secure exemptions. Now, one only need be a student or underemployed individual to be effectively imprisoned by an unlivable wage.
Naturally, reason supports and applauds ensuring the working class the dignity of a living wage. The Multitude surely supports that cause.
It will not, however, abide any measure obviously intended to isolate and divide a class -- the working class -- against itself; it's easy, of course, to dismiss the prison population as "those who deserve it," but how many do not? It's absolutely true that few real world societies guarantee their inhabitants a living wage. And many of those same institute laws that effectively imprison individuals for the "grotesque crimes" of insufficient income, absent educational opportunities, and a lack of wealthy social connections to begin with.
How many are denied the dignity of a living wage and on top of the insult are then jailed for the "offense" because survival demands resorts of means that the wealthy need not even consider? The measure currently slated for repeal, and the replacement linked above, condemn and forget these majority.
And now the replacement will likely expand the ranks of these forgotten by adding students and the un/underemployed to those exempted from a decent living wage. In the name of "education" no less.
An education in one's "proper" place, one presumes.
Hello everyone, I'm new to this so I apologize for speaking out of role if that is breaking the code. I don't find right now where else to greet everyone and start talking about the game and real politics. Will be delighted to get to know everyone. Cheers
