Enact a new YELLOW rule entitled ‘The Mantis Mantra’ reading

The mantra of all Citizens is as follows:

Free us from thought and responsibility.

We shall read things off you.

Then do them.

Your words guide us.

We’re dumb.

Enact a new RED rule reading ‘No Thinking Allowed

No Citizen shall read from the Great Wall of Prophecy. Any Citizen caught doing so may be summarily terminated by any Officer.

against Not entirely convinced that the “make keywords up and define them later” approach works that well without a dynasty geared to backing it up.

against Not convinced that it works that well with a dynasty geared to backing it up, either. (/me glares at the second dynasty of Ienpw III.)

jmrdex, Rodney: I repeat my previous comment about your arrows.

Kevan: It works in some dynasties. I agree that it doesn’t work in extremely scammable dynasies such as this one. And we all know that it doesn’t work as the basis for a dynasty.

RoV against Clearly an attempt to trigger rule 2.4.1. (For what purpose, who can say?)

It’s not. I don’t think I’d have any use for that anyway; there’s no mechanism by which a UV can be killed right now, much less killed twice.
