If some are simply exiled,

Think about it. Rather than making a big dramatic spectacle, or burdening ourselves with prison systems, we just throw them out into the wilds. They're free to make what future they will, which isn't likely to amount to much. So, many will end up as pillagers. I don't know what form it takes, which is irrelevant for concept - think Mad Max and The Road Warrior if you need something to work with. That's an incentive to keep the cities guarded and check newcomers carefully at the gate. It brings real risk back to adventuring, keeping people out of the wilds a bit better and since hired security adds overhead, puts the brakes on commercial activity between cities to some extent. It gives local militia and paramilitary real live fire missions to keep them in top performance. Lastly, the most aggressive and stupid exiled criminals therefore get culled anyways, but society doesn't need to round up its defectives and mass execute them. Just inform them in no uncertain terms that their welcome has come to an end.

I think sociopaths seem to be the only ones worth cheering looking at the list of those admired at this site (Unibomber, school shooters, etc, etc)

That isn't really a reasonable assessment.

Ludwig van Beethoven
Theodor Herzl
Ted Kaczynski
Pentti Linkola
Friedrich Nietzsche


Cattle raid on who? Piracy on who? Who's going to be the pirate? Intelligent people are going to be pirates? I always thought it was reserved for those uneducated wretched beings. Aren't these just forms of what we would normatively call 'crimes'? Didn't ANUS call for the castration of criminals?

Yeah, but I believe they can be put to use as outcasts to go have a fight with. Other uses are slaves, cheap labor, Democrat or Labour type party voters. I like the former best. If some are simply exiled, it doesn't make the system seem like a rampaging psycho that needs to be removed.

Here are some songs from albums that revitalized my metal commitment after so much crossover, death, grind, heavy, and speed metal listening. I'm probably not BM qualified, so instead here is another way to organize such lists, if it helps any better.

Ea, Lord Of The Depths
Jesus' Tod

Natassja In Eternal Sleep

I Am The Black Wizards

Witches Holocaust
River of Tears
Gates to the Kingdom of Darkness

The Sun No Longer Rises
Pure Holocaust

Funeral Fog
Freezing Moon

Any suggestions / solutions / ideas?

I'm positive that perpetual peace isn't assumed anywhere in the ideas here. The sustained mass battles of the civilized world, since after civilizations arose, are probably not the best way. The honor duels of the Renaissance, a merchant ship fending off pirates, or small scale cattle raid battles of ancient Europe are a better way.

As for organizing a society, Corrupt's idea of taking individual responsibility toward what's best for the group is intriguing. It works very well in a business department, an army unit at perhaps company scale or smaller, a volunteer group event, etc. I'm not sure how well this would scale up without increasing enforcement in some form because then we would be sacrificing, or going above and beyond, for people with whom we are not in routine contact.

fascism: The Latin prefix fasces refers to a wooden rod around which are leather-bound additional sticks or dowels to make it considerably more reinforced as a tool or weapon haft. In essence: singly, I am brittle, together we are much stronger.

global warming: 1. the belief that the combined output of human industrial activity is the present cause of world climate change; may also include the belief that replacing indiscriminate carbon consumerism with green, low carbon consumerism assists environmental conservation 2. a red herring argument intended to shift public attention away from ecological conservation free of human presence and toward a tax on carbon output which has two goals: to maintain the system of unchecked global ecological exploitation coupled with increased human population (i.e. Economic Growth) and to have the industrialized nations further fund the complete industrialization of the Third World

health care reform: 1. public policy implying that finances determine human quality of life and survival moreso than the body's own natural organic functions and its dependency with the natural world 2. the assertion that distribution of cost and access to medical products and services above all determines human health and longevity 3. see also many-to-one relationship

globalism: 1. the act of circumventing territorial autonomy due to the barriers they may impose upon commercial activity 2. the act of paralyzing cultural development by making culture into a commercial product and luring its creators into commercial activities as a replacement for their own cultural continuity

globalist: 1. an individual who does not value the concept of sovereign territory because borders pose various hindrances to the commercial activities that benefit the globalist 2. an individual who impedes cultural development by deconstructing it into an array of products for sale and encouraging its creators to replace their own cultural development with commercial activity

neoconservatism, neoliberalism: 1. the belief in one's own individual primacy over many aspects of reality 2. the belief that an individual makes his own reality rather than temporarily modifying his finite area of influence with varying results in quality

racism: 1. a term invented by Leon Trotsky to shame industrialized world powers opposed to the expansion of communism,in order to create resentment against these powers in the non-industrialized world and therefore encourage the non-industrialized nations to shift the world balance of power in favor of the Soviet Union 2. a term used by liberal democratic political parties and constituents in industrialized countries to stigmatize any opposing party or critic

biological determinism: the belief that inherited factors overwhelmingly influence the development of life; we are each a part of a reality that made us all possible

social determinism: a belief in human exceptionalism in that psycho-social factors overwhelmingly influence the development of human life; we create our own reality

I want to listen to the album in full before I make any judgement calls.

I am reserving judgement as well.

Anthropology or racial issues fall under biological determinism, which has pretty much dropped off the radar. You'll find more of it elsewhere.

Sometimes they are recruited from outside, sometimes they are rotated in from having held other officer exec positions in the organization. Up, up the ladder.

Feel free to elaborate on your video games lifestyle in whatever detail you believe relevant. But, in your spare time, go ahead and generate lectures about "lack of" Real World Activisms.

People like to cry over foreign places or romanticize them, because people hate their own lives. That's why all the make-work talking heads are weeping over Haiti, and even the fat impoverished people in grocery stores are sending their $10 through their cell phones. It's a giant scam that will contribute nothing in the end except "good feelings," and as with drugs, people will do a lot for that.

That's true, but there is also a parallel factor at work. There is a professional strata of people, "experts", who use events like these to get ahead by going and directly contributing to humanitarian relief. It's quite a bit like Bernard Madoff's case, where an unscrupulous guy uses his circumstances and incoming opportunities to get himself ahead, but society pays the price for him.

This class of expert is the medical professional who flies in, patches people up for a couple days, then flies home receiving all the back pats and golf claps from family, friends and those collegues who couldn't go. It's street cred again. If he drags an orphan or two back with him for adoption, why that's another order of magnitude more valuable cred.

Hey, what judge, besides an Evil One, is going to lay the hammer down on a malpractice offender who in his career happened to have collected humanitarian opportunity credits like Haiti for example? What hospital board is going to ask such a Great Guy to resign? Nah, humanitarian cred is resume material in bold type and grounds for senior staff advisory promotion: no more bloody hands or urine stained smock. It's suit and mahogany desk time, baby, yeah!
