About to watch High Rise, which may be worth an entry here.
Intelligence definitely tended upward, to aid your point. But I must point out the rather obvious extrapolative point which you seem to be either ignoring or denying in bad faith: the disproportionate nature of this contained society, relative to a state with an established public sector, makes it severely more difficult for a public sector to have any impact.So if the architect positioned himself as some head of tower, and organized a representative election per floor to collectively constitute a congress that may leverage his word, barbarism may have been averted?
I admit you, things would have gotten along a bit longer. But consider the confinement of the system. A relatively narrow divide, numerically, between grande and petit. What was to stop the upper chambers from swaying the system, more or less immediately?
But have we reached a satisfactory synthesis? I think not, young one.Note yourself, master, that I am no smitten pupil, but recognize my errors as I see them unfold.
I see the fault in my presumption, and to what false conclusions it may lead. Proportions of differing classes will not be assumed t reflect our established norm so long as they idiosyncratically differ from our established norm.
And for the record, I think I may actually agree with you, insofar as such things can be pinned down, yet find myself nonetheless in an explicit position of antithesis, as conjured.
Challenge accepted, master.But have we reached a satisfactory synthesis? I think not, young one.
