On The Merits of Expartiatization
"Hairshirting" must be avoided: the benefits of all human progress should be
leveraged going forward, and technologies and lessons learned under flawed and
unjust organizations should not be ignored. The point is not to drop off,
abandon, or boycott the polical grid, it is to create a new and improved
subnetwork of the grid.
Change happens when things are done well.
The United States, and arguably many other developed western captialist
democracies, is stuck in a rut: political and social progress has slowed to a
halt and momentum has been lost. It is unclear whether there is a significant
backslide taking place or if this is just the perception from a lack of
Unused infrastructure is good.
A balance of resources is good: enough to not be desperately dependant, but not so many that outside forces will be attracted.
