GOVERNMENT PRIMER

Frank J has compiled a handy guide to the different types of government. My favorites:

Anarchy: This is where you loot things and smash windows. It’s a lot of fun until finally you’re like, “Hey, there are no more windows left to smash! Isn’t someone going to fix the windows?” and someone else says, “No, dude, this is an anarchy.” So then another government has to be set up so the windows can be fixed. Thus anarchy can only last in spurts.

Feudal System: This is a system that involves a lot of arguments, or “Feuding”. I think it’s stupid, but others may violent disagree, and then we’d have a feudal system.

Go read the rest.
