ACABIRLOBTOIDBAAFI: All Cops Are Bastards In Real Life, Obviously, But The Ones In Discworld Books Are Actually Fairly Interesting. Our episode on GUARDS! GUARDS! is live! (live!) #discworld #disccoverers #podcast
@discpod Got to June talking about Ankh-Morpork as kind of a libertarian hellscape and wanted to share a thought.
It's not saying unfettered libertarianism will works, it's saying it would NOT work without an infinitely clever and determined dictator in Vetenari. He is required to make sure that capital *remembers* that it needs to protect common interests to protect its own interests.
@rockario this is really it, ain't it. libertarianism only really works when there's someone with a big-ass spiked bat standing behind it
@discpod "you see, we're being cruel and abusive so that you learn how to deal with people being abusive in the real world."
But all the way up
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
