Paul:Proposition 2 is flawed. The Change enforced different ways of doing things, and feudalism is one of the possible ways. Unless someone can prove that following the Change, it's impossible to have a successful community without feudalism, the "syllogism" falls apart.For that matter, Proposition 1 is flawed. It assumes there are no malevolent entities with levels of power we'd consider godlike.
BTW, Paul, if you e-mail me with your mailing address, I'll get you on the ARC (Advanced Reading Copy) list for new books -- the BLACK CHAMBER book upcoming, for instance.
Mr Stirling,Thank you. I think I need you to send me your email address? Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org.Paul.
Mr Stirling,In haste before. My thought was that, if you email me, then I will be able to reply with my postal address. (Thus, three means of communication will be used: blog, email and snail mail.)Paul.
Done, email heading to Blighty and you.
