Just a simple sound bite for our current age.
I always like posts where one can learn something...
Than perhaps what is learned is the nature of the game board before you put your pieces anywhere.. or start a new game. :)
What I meant to say was that I did learn something by reading your "simple" sound bite...:)
Sounds like we're screwed no matter what we do. Ha!
There have been several societies with no central government. When the Israelites came into the promised land they were forbidden to have a king or any law enforcement in the land between cities. The Goths whipped Rome in several ways with no central government. The Dutch built an empire with no central government. The American colonies didn't even have an ideological leader until Thomas Paine published "Common Sense".
In every case, the society was prosperous, strong, and stable for about 150 years, and then the people threw it all away and demanded a central government. After that they either were conquered or collapsed from within.
What a place we would have if no one took action against anyone.
