The issue I've always had with Adhoc's system isn't the system itself, but with the people that this system would effect. First I can understand why Adhoc is bitter. I'll spare the details but I can't blame him nor can I say anything mean/insulting about his POV/beliefs. However, to say a governmental system will somehow change how humans will treat other humans is absurd, possibly naive. Ever since we evolved from monkeys/clams/pond slime/soap scum/created, we have been at each others throats. Humans are generally just as territorial as monkeys/cats/dogs/etc. So, somewhere between [your explanation of how humans came to be here] and now, people have been in bloody, violent pissing matches over territories/belief systems/resources/some bullshit excuse here. Changing/eradicating a government system won't change that immutable fact. All it will do is change how said pissing match gets played out and how innocent people get fucked over because of it. So, lets play make believe and say that tomorrow Ad's system was put down. What would happen? First: People wouldn't know what to do. Everything that they were use to is gone now. This would lead to confusion and perhaps panic. Now, when I say "Panic" I don't mean "they go ape shit" I mean "What do I do? What is the next step?" If people are not familiar with this system, they won't know what to do. So, there will be confusion and whether people go postal or get naked and have wild clusterfucks is up to interpretation. Secondly: Those who have power will fight to stay in power. I highly doubt things like the military or police would just go "Ok we are going home now and fuck". What I do see happening is Washington DC trying to still stay in power. I see people trying to topple them. More importantly: I see people fighting and dying trying to grab power and control. From the Government all the way down to the local street thugs. In this wake: MANY people, who are still confused about what the fuck is going on, get killed in the crossfire. Finally: In the wake of all this fight for power, many more die because of the lack of essential services like hospitals, sanitation, electricity, road care, etc. Why? Nobody is getting paid for doing it. If they do get paid, it isn't worth the time/money/effort. So this idea of Ad's could cost exponentially more lives than what is currently in place. It's not the system that would cause it, it would be people being opportunistic people.
