    1. this government is charged with the external and mutual relations only of these states, that the states themselves have principal care of our persons, our property, and our reputation, constituting the great field of human concerns, we may well doubt whether our organisation is not too complicated, too expensive; whether offices and officers have not been multiplied unnecessarily, and some times injuriously23 to the service they were meant to promote. I will cause to be laid before you an essay towards a statement, of those who, under public employment of various kinds, draw money from the treasury, or from our citizens.

      Role of Federal gov't. Leave the main issues to the states. When we draw from the US Treasury, we are drawing from our citizens.

    1. Mike: Yeah. But they didn't tell us that if he wasn't from there, that it didn't apply to us. And since he's not a resident, or he's not anything, they just took it all away. But they gave me a social security card. They gave me a work permit. They gave me everything that I needed. I even got my taxes one year [Emotional]. I got $3,000 back, put my taxes on my wall, like I'm really doing it.

      Time in the US, Jobs/Employment/Work, Documents, Social Security Card/ ID

    1. I'm still calling this v1.00 as this is what will be included in the first print run.

      There seems to be an artificial pressure and a false assumption that the version that gets printed and included in the box be the "magic number" 1.00.

      But I think there is absolutely nothing bad or to be ashamed of to have the version number printed in the rule book be 1.47 or even 2.0. (Or, of course, you could just not print it at all.) It's just being transparent/honest about how many versions/revisions you've made. 

    1. It looks like you just deleted our lovely crafted issue template. It was there for good reasons. Please help us solving your issue by answering the questions asked in this template. I'm closing this. Please either update the issue with the template and reopen, or open a new issue.

      Ignoring official advice

    2. @evilebottnawi Closing the issue because I removed the template looks like excessive bureaucracy.

    1. If you're wearing the same shoes as I have so many times before where you're trying to make yourself heard and do what you ultimately believe is in the organisation's best interests
    2. Actually, I probably would have ended up just paying for it myself due to the procurement challenges of even a single-digit dollar amount, but let's not get me started on that

    1. Believing that there was no more work for philosophers as well, since Hegel (correctly understood) had already achieved absolute knowledge, Kojève left teaching after the war and spent the remainder of his life working as a bureaucrat in the European Economic Community, until his death in 1968.

      This is depressing on so many levels.

    1. pacts of the network society.  The Occupy movements showed networks of people standing up to capitalist institutions.  In the Movement for Black Lives, Black people are leading demands for structural change to the institutions that have oppressed and killed them for centuries.  However, the network society has also facilitated the public regrowth of hate groups such as the white supremacy movement.  

      I think this duality is what is most captivating and perplexing about the network society. Could this be the ying/yang of a society governed more by networks and less by bureaucracy?

    1. breaks down some of the traditional social hierarchies and national borders because information flows almost anywhere

      Do you think networks are also breaking down bureaucracies?
