    Ahhh cool I used to do a helluva lot of reading here in the beginning back when I started lurking in 2010, should've joined then... I've been reading a lot of anarchist stuff lately though, still learn a lot from reading here, but I've gradually read less and read the posts of people I see as better posts, which is the majority of older posters here.

    Hey how are you? Do you do a massive amount of reading?

    Hey, I just wanted to apologize for the other day if my comments in the conspiracy thread offended you or anything. Not my intent, and I feel bad and you're cool, so, yeah, my bad. Carry on then.

    Why do people keep disagreeing with me?!

    Mixed feelings. In my opinion, I think it's more of a case of "in spite of" than "due to", or, more accurately, than it's an unintended consequence. As for allowing players to interact imaginatively (modding, etc.), I still think it seems like a truncated field within which to imagine, that represents a certain necessity. To look for a comparison elsewhere, I'd go to fast food, where new menu items are routinely the creations of bored employees fucking around when making their lunches. Is there creativity? Absolutely! Does working at McDicks foster creativity? Seems like a stretch.

    That said, I think your example speaks while to your own capacities, and the capacities of people generally (I hope) to be resilient in the face of capital's wholesale (retail?) attempts to reduce them to slavishly uninventive garbage disposal units.

    Even the people who might look at us in hostility or with some bit of worry as to what our aims are, once those types see the good, the true freedom and equality we're bringing, the better world we're building, then i strongly feel those types will be won over on our side. Those are the types who will see the new society around them and decide to contribute. I recall reading how spanish anarchists wouldn't force anyone to join the commune but a land owner could only own as much land as he could work himself. Usually those owners joined the communes upon seeing how much better life was!

    Hey comrade, happy belated birthday! I just realized It recently passed coming to your profile haha. I really came to tell you I enjoy your points made especially in the Humanism thread. There are a few of those types who think you need to use excessive force, but i like your defense that we only need to use violence when it's necessary and appropriate. I agree 100% especially me being an anarchist I don't want to oppress innocents. I feel violence would be necessary to defend our gains against the state (police especially) and counter-revolutionaries or fascists but not the local bakery owner, not the bourgeois family who might sympathize with some of our views but decide to stay neutral.

So I wanted to take up miniature-based wargaming as a hobby again, but what with having next to no disposable income, what was I to do?

I don't exactly remember where I got the idea from, but I was recently struck with the notion of using those little plastic toy soldiers, you know the ones I mean, the guys that come in tubs or bags of 100-200 individuals.

So I today I went down to the high street and bought two different tubs of cut-price commandos, as well two plastic...

INTRODUCTION

The state of the art in agriculture in the 22nd century is bound up in the hurricane of innovation that characterised late 21st-century technological and industrial development, which depending on who you ask is variously known as the Industrial Revolution 2.0, the First Singularity, the End of the Old World, the Great Market Shrink or the Big Mistake. Rapidly increasing...

The Core Worlds

Since the 22nd century, Terran civilisation has spread out from Earth in the Solar system to inhabit worlds around other stars, in some cases transforming them into places more hospitable to humanoid life. The motivations for doing so have varied - the propaganda value of making the first successful attempt, a realisation that keeping all one's eggs in one basket is a bad move in an indifferent universe, the opening up of new markets and products for dwindling capitalist...

The natives of Ghellhonus

"Dear citizens of the world and the wider solar system,

I would like to address you on the magnificent and amazing discovery in the Alpha Centauri A system. Ever since our ancestors first looked up to the skies and gazed upon the cosmos, we have always wondered what lay beyond our own world. The discovery of extraterrestrial life on the planet of Ghellhonus is a significant discovery and it constitutes the most important scientific milestone

Introduction

What is a mech? For the purposes of these notes I'm defining "mech" as an armoured fighting vehicle that has robotic legs for locomotion. The image below can be considered a typical mech:



As you may have gathered, my conception of mechs in Nova Mundi isn't like those Japanese super robot shows where the vehicles concerned are a brazillion feet tall, run around at the speed of light and...
