Criticism of Capitalism
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMdIgGOYKhs

While i'm not entirely sure i'm a marxist, because i'm not entirely sure people should be paid 100% of what they produce (other people offer synergies to increase the value of what you produce) - i am onboard with the criticism that wealthy people have too much power in the system.

They never lose the power either. Its dynastic.

And even if you aggressively tax them they will cry that big government is attacking prosperity.

the cry of 'big government is attacking prosperity' has become so common and obvious, that many citizens are completely convinced that the only purpose of government is to harm their potential...

Wolffy is great, still he's something of an outlier among Marxian economists. While Marxists agree about exploitation, they don't want to make sure workers are paid 100% of their labor value. Rather, they want to abolish capitalism and wage labor altogether and replace it with communism, either gradually (in the case of Marxist-Leninists) or immediately (in the case of Council Communists and Autonomists).

It will never work, but you can do better still. Intermediate capitalist-socialist hybrids.

On the state level, this looks like social democracy, where the state runs public serices, like healthcare, education, public transport and welfare while capitalism deals with the 'optional extras' that make life fun, like iternet access, fast food, and pornography.

Or you can go the localism route. And run a commune - best self-sufficient, abolish capitalistic interactions one at a time. Cone to depend on your own community more and more, and don't assume a revolution is coming, just live the way you want to, in a communistic sub-culture of your own design (to suit your needs, and ability to provide)...

Anyone can start doing this today. And reduce consumerism by replacing consumed goods and services with free alternatives, and volunteering to create that value for your commune (like the council communists or autonomists)

Civil Disobedience
Since I can't comment on the SoW in anyway apparently even expressing disdain for a lack of commentary. I thought, hell the rules don't say I can't make a second thread to talk about times you've been let down or disappointed.

This is not a complaint -- just observing
What are people's thoughts on the effects on player behavior when operating under Sum-of-Squares scoring? I feel like I've noticed an increase in land grabbing and selfish alliance play when using this scoring. It has been more difficult to convince an ally with more centers to spread the wealth for a stronger, mutual alliance. Agree?

Fleet Builds Only
So I was chilling in bed the other day when I got this idea. I started a game on the standard map, cause I thought it would be interesting. I know that Austria-Hungary would get screwed but I was just wondering what the strategies would be.

Guide for 17 player map?
Hello, I'm thinking about joining a 17 person map, but I have no clue if there are any strategies for this sort of thing. Everything that I've found so far, unless super general, relates to the 7 country map. Are there any guides or tips you could give me so that I'm more prepared for this map? Thanks!

WebDiplomacy Survivor - Final Tribal Council
35 days ago, 21 castaways begun their journey in the webDiplomacy version of the famous reality game show. Now, only three - Balki Bartokomous, DemonOverlord, Fluminator - remain, and all have fought tooth and nail to make it this far.

The final victor will be decided by eleven of the players they voted out, and this is their opportunity to sway votes their way. Welcome to Final Tribal.

Autocomplete public press
Basically the idea is to provide you with a centre so we can work together. The only press is public commitment to attack Italy. Every sentence may be in Gascony and the other games. The rest is autocompleted to find out what kind of player is required.
