make a standard protocol to export full wikis

i want clean and automated wiki mirrors

then wiki federation

And what if the designer of the game was secretly a cynical marxist and designed the algorithms so that any non-communistic system would eventually be overthrown by the people and your influence reduced to running political campaigns and farming a single plot of land?

Or what about subverting democracy by running multiple parties with apparently opposing goals, balancing them to achieve your plans?

Or what about convincing the populace that the family of leaders you control are Special-In-The-Eyes-Of-God and are the only ones that should be allowed to own land, everyone else being renters or serfs?

A 4X game where you don't control the nation/state directly, but you control the leader[s] and their orders/proposals.
You'll then have to navigate through different governing systems with different playstyles.

Do you try your luck as a dictator, keeping the populace happy and/or distracted so you can do what you want?

Do you install democracy and run a single party, competing against AI for control of the nation?

When it comes to communicating communist ideas I feel like it'd be more effective if instead of saying "private property" we said "remote ownership" or "ownership on paper" or "economic property" or "corporate property" or "for-profit property"

Cuz like what we mean is "you can't own a house you don't live in" "you can't own a business others work in" "You can't own land others live or work on"

And I think in the 21st century "private property" just doesn't evoke that meaning

Please be compassionate as much as possible

Even if looks that someone is okay - it doesn't mean that they really are.
They may have health issues. They may have anxiety. They may have big problems in life. It can be anything.
Try to not be aggressive and try to help as much as you can, at least by being kind.

It is my honest and fervent opinion that Episode 3 is the worst of the prequels

I remember learning about some early "New World" colony that was basically Literally Full Communism but it was portrayed in a positive light in my Christian high school whereas even THINKING about Marx would get you a Talking To and I think that's Telling

"Of all the things Mike would expect to find on a spaceship, this wasn't one of them. If Carl had surprised him, then it was nothing compared to how he felt now. Being abducted by a furry alien was like driving a bumper car, while this was backing a truck down a twisted mountain road 80 miles per hour while his pants were on fire. "

@zatnosk I thought a gardening RPG would be, like, everybody's character class is farmer but you can level up proficiencies in, like, growing tomatoes or peppers or squash or at really high levels you can grow bananas in Canadian winter, or you plant something and have to roll success against a skill modifier for your seeds to germinate, or if you fail a roll then bunnies eat your carrots, and you defend your garden from local foxes or the neighbour's cat

I'm kinda into this tbh
