Isn’t there an knowitall computer thingy that can be asked for help? When up against a wall you punch a hole in it and crawl through to the other side. Or punch your way through the problem. Didn’t Flask consult it? Doesn’t everybody know about it? Help is where you look for it and sometimes the last place you look for it. Is this toy available to anybody and everybody? Blessed Be
New auction this week. Please bid on Maude, or buy the print. Help Aaron cover his hospital bills and continue drawing Endtown.
Tha isn’t how democratic systems work! when a minority has the power to gum up the works. that’s a broken Democracy!When a government inteferes wiith the peoples’ privac
Now, what could Mallard be studying so intensely that he’d be willing to give up control of security to the High Council?
Wonderful news, everybody! Endtown is featured in the GoComics blog today.
I get the impression that Mallard and the Doctor are two of the founders of Endtown.
I love him :D
Mob rule. That’s part of the reason straight democracies fail..Until the U.S. Constitution started being ignored, the genius of the system was that the base set of laws could not be mob-ruled away and every law was subject to the Constitution..Today, though, the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Amendments are partly gone. The 6th Amendment is failing, and the tenth has been ignored since the 1930s with the “redefinition” of the commerce clause..The fascinating thing is that the U.S. is repeating the western Roman Empire’s failure. Bread and circuses (the “right” to free bread and “entertainment” became the rule in this nation in modern form), foreign invasion with at least one third of the total Mexican population in the nation, and the moral degeneration of both government and populace. .We’re just doing what Rome did in 500 years in a much shorter timespan. Unlike other periods of recorded history, it’s not just one nation doing so and then failing, but the entire world is doing it, with the possible exception of china, which, having no morals under communism was at the bottom and could only improve (lying was standard policy of the government, 90 million murders in the Chinese Civil War, the Great Leap Forward, and the Cultural revolution, not counting the 400 million aborted with the one child only policy, no freedoms to speak of, etc.).
Planet of the Apes reference?
Yea, Switzerland is the only true Democracy. Eat our chees!
Yeah, go badger THEM.
I just find it alarming that Mallard doesn’t give a sh**. Duck responsibility, indeed!
You’ll notice that Mallard’s “contact” was “our security chief,” who “died on a mission a few months back.” If this means Flask—-and I can’t think of who else it would mean—-it means Mallard doesn’t know anything about what Aaron Marx did with Flask afterwards…
Bright Eyes!? With that squint have we really seen his eyes?
This reminds me of the first story arc. Mutants trying so hard to be human, even in the face that they’re not human or animal, but something in the middle.
I guess Frank went to lunch? LOL.
RobertNowall In answer to your question would I ride with Mallard. No I would drive he would ride. He is too easily distracted by shiny things. I stay pretty focused on the task at hand.So the rats Security answer to the High Council. Allgood has several members sympathetic to his cause on the High Council. So the armed force takes command from the High Council controlled by Allgood. Basically Allgood is in charge by proxy. He influences the High Council who then orders the Security. This still leaves hanging who is in command of the rats directly like Flask was. That is the one who can gum up the works. The High Council can order but if the Head of Security decides not to act that can change the game plan. That one person holds the future of Endtown.On another note, Mallard is a bit wrong. That is not how a democracy works. It is what happens to a democracy when no one pays attention to what is going on or when seeing something wrong going on do nothing to stop it.
Of course, it’s not because somebody is telling the Security Rats to blaze away with their guns and arrest somebody who doesn’t conform—-it’s that they can do this. If Allgood didn’t exist, sooner or later someone else would—-so much for Endtown being a democracy.#I wish I could do italics, but all I can manage is bold face. Anybody want to advise me?
I did NOT see that coming. Mallard will NOT be coming to Holly’s rescue after all!
I see a need to put Wally in charge of security. We know that he is an effective fighter when properly motivated and that he has a strrong conscience with convictions. Plus who better to handle rats than a feisty cat?
At long last, I kinda miss Flask.
If they were in a democracy then 4 people couldn’t have been arrested without just cause, this is just a dictatorship at this point.
Just speculating here but…Linda is qualified for ANY job in Endtown. Former topsider. Security chief vacancy. Hmmm…
Now I want to jump up Mallard’s donk.
Mallard is amongst my least favorite characters. Allgood being the very worst, Didn’t like Flask until after her change, and Jackrabbit seem like a hack too. It’s the ones who try to stir up trouble.
I remember an old song from the Beach Boys Surfs Up album circa 1969.Student Demonstration TimeThe violence spread down south where the Jackson State brothers learned not to say nasty things about southern policeman mothers. Nothing much was said about it and really next to nothing done.The pen is mightier than the sword but it is no match for the gun.Endtown is on the brink.
Just seen the new avatar for Endtown.Crazy Flask with her Zero Scalpel.That was an epic.Can hear her mind. (Oh the joy of slicing and dicing!)
Allgood is All-bad. The people of End town really do seem to be folks that just want to live and love and laugh and don’t want to have to worry that there is a government, so they haven’t much noticed what has been building. If this is the 1st real action that has harmed good citizens, then they didn’t have much real need to pay attention.It may take more than the treatment of our 3, that we care about to really get their attention. WHen the trial takes place, Then they will begin to see why it is important to watch what the ones in power are doing. Maybe Wally or Doc will figure out Who the head of security or head of the council is, and get the ball rolling that way.
When those that believe that Doing the “RIght” thing, even if others don’t agree is more prone to corruption that a person who knows that most people are basic-ly good and don’t want someone else’s Ideal forced on them, is a better leader. Wally doesn’t want the job, but he doesn’t have an “agenda” I don’t think Linda would have one either and she does have a taste for negociation.
Uh-oh. A police force that’s responsible ONLY to those in power tends to become a club for enforcing their beliefs in short order…
