    Never underestimate the ability of things to get worse.

    I’m not sure if I’m happy about it or not, but I’m thinking that if I ever did get exposed to the mutagen, I’d probably turn into Cooper. “Down with tribalism!”

    “And then they travel to the next community only to find out it’s already destroyed itself”

    So you really are a closet optimist. A complete colony, with buildings, supplies and a full larder, with no one competing for any of it. Sounds like a golden opportunity.

    Well I spose if it’s destroyed the possibility of it being complete, filled with supplies, is much slimmer.
     
    Now if it were simply empty, but then it raises the question, what event came and went so fast that everyone either was snuffed out, or booked it, without bringing any supplies.

    Remember, on Tuesday, Vote YES for THUNDERDOME! Thunderdome, solving legal disputes with 100% accuracy, and 100% more action.

    Can’t we all just get beyond Thunderdome? ;)

    Well, that is always the fear of democracy. At what point does it become simply mob-rule, or worse, a plutocracy?

    People like Cooper might be given the boot thanks to their… undesirableness, and perhaps people like Albert since they come off as too… Topsiderish.

    No, we can’t. Because it was either Vote for Thunderdome, or Vote for Number 6. But since there isn’t a giant, white balloon guarding Endtown, the latter can’t be right.

    Interesting that Cooper describes the current state of Endtown as an “absense of tribalism”, since it could be argued that Endtown is itself a Tribe – a group “similarly minded people” (as opposed to topsiders, anyway) who banded together to share resources and safety in numbers.

    Most animals instinctively form packs of individuals due to the pack’s inherent advantages over individualism; humans being ill-equipped to live on their own are even more inclined to do this Tribes simply describe a like-minded pack of individuals; it is unfortunate that history focuses more on the conflict between tribes for resources, rather than the reason for their existence in the first place.

    First off before heading out a phone call ought to be made to Deep Persia and others just to see if they are even in existence. For all we know each one could have been Cobalt bombed into dust. They did not have access to the dittos like Endtown did. The satellite could have found their location and “POOF”.
    We only know Jacob is running but do not know who else is running. If there are 6 or 7 thousand folks in Endtown how many are supporters of Jacob? A few hundred attended his rally but how many more support him? Looks like the numbers may not be in his favor.
    Of course the question is this…..is this vote to elect Jacob or just abolish the council then form a commitee or forum or a think tank to come up with the new way to run Endtown.
    THEN vote for it to be approved and THEN begin to fill the slots. Jacob is just posting ahead of time.
    Of course this is just a guess. This could be to elect Jacob but how will the government run what form would it take?

    Who other than Mallard can make that call? As far as we know, even the security rats don’t have communications lines to the other groups. And, probably almost no one in Endtown knows that Mallard has that ability.

    I’m guessing that the vote is to abolish the high council and replace it with a legislature of some sort and a president. There will be a vote for the legislature and president later.
