The New Inquisition Regional Message Board
Basically in a situation where death is inevitable, just that the car has to choose between saving the driver and the pedestrians/other vehicle, based on a number of factors, such as following the law, saving the most lives possible, prioritising certain groups of people, etc.
It depends on what one means by "god". An immanent & transcendent omniscient creator of the universe is quite different from an entity with such immense power that you are powerless before it but which is still subject to (some) laws of nature. The latter in technical speak can also be distinguished between a "strongly godlike entity" and a "weakly godlike entity".
Likewise the Deep Ones are merely an ancient species so much more advanced that humans that Clarkes Law applies.
The principal horror that Lovecraft was evoking was that there is no beneficient creator God, merely an uncaring universe which is beyond the comprehension of mankind despite its pathetic accretion of "science" attempting to do so, and moreover a universe filled with a hierarchy of entities which can understand more of the universe and have as much compassion and regard for humans as humans would to bacteria.
The symptom of an inefficient politico-economic system which would need to be replaced once human potential can be freed from drudge work by automation.
There would still require to be some means of exchange to deal with (a)those raw resources which remain limited, (b)use of other peoples time, and (c)intellectual property (which is a specific subset of b). However it could be using kudos (reputation based exchanges) rather than EuroDollarYens (currency based on share of GDP).
There would also still need to be planning & co-ordinating bodies, dispute resolution services, emergency services etc. so some form of "government" would exist, even if not so monolithic as to date.
Yes, that would be the basis of the new means of exchange, whether formal or informal.
You've just given the definition of a C19th Imperialist government :-)
That wouldn't be a very effective marketing strategy, don't you think?
or it could come off as Corporate Enforcement
IE the Trade Federation's Common Practice of Blockadeing planets who owed them
We could also do that but here you'll get jumped apon by a bunch of angry people.
