Who said that you said it'll never work. Societies splitting needs to happen sometimes. I'M saying it will NEVER WORK!!!!! Period. That's just me, and I'm pessimistic, considering ALL members of a metal society would be either: insane, on drugs, overly emotional(too hateful, too depressed, etc), overly passionate, optionated, anti-establishment, anarchistic, sociopaths, misanthropists, etc, etc the list goes on.
You need the simple drones to make a successful society. The drones need to be the ones who simply, like you put it "approve of something" to keep the "foundations" of the society to work. What you also need is good leaders, like some of you said. We know metal-heads. Apart from the list on paragraph 1, most metallers are anti-hero. Anti-leader.
IT WILL NOT WORK!!!! Or it might, IF you eliminate DRUGS from the society. Period. BUT, Ha ha ha ha.......I don't see that happening.
It's cool to entertain the thought though.
