  • The 'Comrade' title is now available in a fetching communist red for purchase by all of you capitalists who survived the Sietch gulag during the people's revolution. And in the spirit of all communists everywhere, it was broken until the capitalist pig dogs fixed it. ;)
  • Your beloved Boot here with a confession. The Boot tangled its laces and failed to properly set up the new Comrade user title. Thanks to the kind intercession of Emperor Tippy this failure has been corrected and the new user title is now actually on sale to everybody.

  • Taking this here, because one it would be thread spam, and two people might find it interesting if they stumble onto it. But did you know that Thomas Paine brings up the exact same thing in his book Common Sense he actually uses this to argue that Republics are more godly than kingdoms.

    I guess I need to read common sense again, but i'm inclined to agree. Just because the bible used a lot of "fudalist" language doesin't mean that such an eartly kingdom was "godly" just one people sadly understood due to carnal nature. In fact as we've seen in Kings such a kingdom was heavily rebuked.

    This is not my area of expertise sadly, I probably should read the bible to understand Christians and then probably follow up with the Torah for Jews, and so on. But I can still get the idea, I think, is that in Judaism and Christianity god is supposed to be the only real king.

    God and Jesus are our true kings, the fact that those of us who claim to be his followers are so quick to be willing to accept Phisical imitations and subsitutions because we don't feel like God is acting fast enough, is not just sad, i'd argue with scripture it is borderline blasphamy. Though we are given some idea of what a godly government as God's form of ideal government has remained fairly consistant, a council of elders/wisemen that handles public cases in keeping with God's word while the smaller disputes are handled by the people whom the dispute is with. I would say that in terms of a sliding scale a republic is more godly then that of an absolute monarch or dictatorship though I will say that his main concern is that people follow him above all else.
