(Not quite a) Proposal: Unidling

Add to the end of the first paragraph of Law 1.1:

No Rule may contain a provision that bars itself from being altered and/or repealed. If at any moment a Rule exists or is altered in a manner that renders it to contain such a provision, the entirety of that Rule shall be considered void and with no effects on the Gamestate. The provisions on this paragraph supersedes any text in a Rule.

Since I’m Idle (and Impeded from leaving that condition), I can’t actually propose this. I ask someone else to do so.

Ah, this would solve our problem nicely. I wouldn’t like to leave this in the core rules indefinitely—my last (non)-Dynasty had ‘Eternal’ rules in it, and although they were never used I’d hate to exclude them on principle.

This doesn’t prevent eternal rules, if the rule rendering them eternal is not the same as themselves, as 75th has commented in another post.

Or even if a Rule makes a /section/ of itself eternal it works just fine.
