Do you work for Linden Lab now Prok?

Prokofy Neva

No, not at all. I don't work for Nobody or Vint, either : )

I write as I please : )

So essentially:

We would be living in a totalitarian dictatorship with no democracy outside of the select few FIC who have access to the pope and his cardinals.

The gestapo of the governance team could make you disappear without a trace.

Due process is non-existent.

Being banned from the state blog and starting a 3rd party blog sounds like the beginnings of a grass-roots revolution to overthrow this oppressive system which you have outlined.

I'm sorry but I would much rather have my rights penned by individuals who passionately believed in a free society, and had the best interest of the people in mind rather than a group of San Fransisco hippies jotting down policies on a napkin over drinks on Battery Street, motivated only by profitability and protection against litigation.

So Elizabeth, what would you specifically change?

Not a snarky question; I'm actually interested to know.

Also, what do you think of the democratically run areas of the grid?

Taran Rampersad

Hah. Prok, you need to go back to school and figure out what a socialist is. You're sounding a bit like McCain right now. ;-)

Prokofy Neva

Elizabeth, trust me, I fight the power. I just think it's worth laying out what the world is, and how totalitarianism is made attractive.

The thing about the people on Battery street is that they are actually motivated by idealism, that's the scary part. If they were motivated by profit, they would actually put in more human rights.

Oh, Nobody, so you're actually a communist, I forgot. Righty-ho.
