I would prefer a reality without the heightened research in violence that
government enforcement can produce.  But governikus sounds like something
helpful to me _if and only if_ it is not in competition with, but rather
ensures support and protection of, other solutions.  Then it's another key
signature which is great.

Haven't looked to know.

it's a dangerous game that is getting more dangerous, obviously, and will
put unknown future new entities incredible power.  but means there's lots
of pressure to solve our disagreements, which would be great.

hey technogovs: tech run by norms is dangerous now and we don't know how to
hack you anymore to take you down reliably.  get your activities off the
internet before we're subjugated by another secret force.

one learns this when oppressed but overall I personally agree with stefan's
sentiment; expl: I was raised with american middle class messaging, and
i've chatted with people on the internet from areas with forced dress codes
or military drafts.  i've also chatted with usa street people with similar
issues.  luck gives power: using it can take it away.
