Henotheism is the belief and worship of a single god while accepting the existence or possible existence of other deities. The term was originally coined by Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling (1775–1854) to depict early stages of monotheism, however Max Müller (1823–1900), a German philologist and orientalist, brought the term into common usage.
A computer as judge, jury, executioner, president, yadda yadda yadda is a very bad idea. Justice must be tempered with mercy and government must be run with compassion. Pure logic doesn't allow for either of those. Spock's "the needs of the many out wiegh the needs of the few" is not a way to govern. If it were, then the infirm, mentally ill, elderly, even the poorest of the poor would be subject to elimination to provide for the largest collective group. Logan's Run (as b-grade as it was) did a great job in pointing out what happens when computers take over and try to make a utopian society. No one over thirty - every one was "reborn" (killed in the movie's reality) to make way for the younger generation of workers. Sure, hot chicks were aorund every corner and all of them wanted to fuck, but utopia was anything but.

Congratulations to Chanakya. But Bob, what happened in the last move there? I had Munich covered, Bur could have saved Mar, and Portugal was not in danger? I don't understand. We were just one turn away from drawing.
Marxism is fundamentally a theory of history which should entail a commitment to social change; that is, a commitment to a socialist future in which the forces of production are not owned privately as they are in capitalist societies but under common ownership.
And Drogzilla scores. I effing hate Chelski, but I have nothing but admiration for Drogba. It helps that they're playing Barca, who I fucking detest since their several year long campaign to stoke Fabregas' discontent. Seriously, fuck them.
