Open Thread #3 - What is Your Ideal Polity?
Utopia-talk as a community-building exercise
After posting the above illustration by Jean Girard aka Moebius on a site that no longer exists, my old friend Hakan replied “this is what libertarians really want”. I am now stuck with this idea in my mind whenever I come across a Moebius Strip.
As part of another community-building exercise, I want to ask you about your ideal polities and/or utopias in light of the tremendous success of my piece from a few days ago detailing the four competing regime systems in the world today as I have outlined them. You might choose an ancient polis, a Martian colony, a mercantilist empire, and so on. Sketch out for us how it would look, how it would be ruled and administered, and so on. A lot of you are Poli Sci. majors, the rest of you are interested in this topic, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this.
If you can’t discuss a utopia in the comments below, then you might consider telling me what you would like to see me write about.
I am working on a big interview to come out next week, with the next segment of the D’Annunzio book club to be posted before that. I have also learned the lesson to put up more thinkpieces, and put them behind a paywall to thank my many, many wonderful subscribers.
