Kritarchy of Norden wrote:Well I don't want to be a dictatorship per se. Because Kritarchy is a system based on honorable Law and it has libertarian type elements. I view FKB as a Paternal system to be sure, but fair in it's firmness at the same time. In any case I'll take your advice.

It's because of that core idea, "Father Knows Best," comes from the title of a famous 50s sitcom (originally a radio show before moving to TV) about an idealized 50s-Americana family. The father was portrayed as the ultimate authority figure, but one who could always solve his children's problems (except those that the kids had to solve themselves in order to grow up, naturally). The mother was portrayed as submitting to his authority, but being the implied "glue" that held the family together--everyone depended on her. And unlike many other sitcom children, the three kids were generally obedient, respectful, and cheerful.

Under those circumstances, it doesn't make sense that the kids could "elect a new dad." Such freedom to control who makes the decisions, let alone what the decisions are, doesn't apply to a family. A Father Knows Best State takes that principle and applies it to the whole nation: the citizens are the autocratic leader's "children," and thus have little control over how the country is run, but are allowed a moderate amount of freedom out of respect for their interests, so to speak.

That's fair. I'll take a look at the government categories and see if I can find one more fitting.

This time admins can you perm ban him?

Also I advise anyone who is wanting to comment on this to not quote his spam as it will just make things harder to read and to try not to cruse as it is against chat rules.

Well um.
Looks like I came at an interesting time...
But hi! I'm from TSP! Glad we have this embassy now

So I relegalised homosexuality which I wanted to do but as a result, I inadvertently legalised gay marriage along with it which I didn't want to do.

Guess I'll need to try and revoke it without banning same sex activity.

Wow, what did I miss?
