Excerpt from “What is a morality cube?”
Example: In the game, "Alpha Centauri", there are things called social value systems that add value, but all come with flaws up front, except with the right technology and combination of value options. The problem is this new balloon is still shaped differently than the original was intended in the first place. Tribalism was the normal balloon, hi jacked by religion, technology, and value setting lead to "civilization" in it's current state, but I suggest the following values IF you can't go back to normal overnight: Democracy, Green, Power, and Cybernetics. The only option that universally sucks is Free Market, but I always build banks and other economic upgrades, because you'll get out teched if you don't. IF you have Centauri preserves and temples to planet in all of your cities then it's OK to go free markets, but that's way late in the game...
If we square morality for algebra we get this cube.
Left squares make a rectangle:
Lawful Good - Socialism, which is a foothold into slavery, just look down the ladder of Babylonian law, a system designed to organize large city states, you know, artificial constructs. Social contracts are better because they manage smaller groups more effectively, not efficiently.
Lawful Neutral Good - Babylon, the worst slaver of all, but only in the end. Because when you quit, she gets mad and sells you to someone else. Sorry I wanted to take a few month vacation or wanted to move away with my family? Look at Commifornia tax people to leave... sugar coated slavery and manipulation. Look at the movie "Roots" and just how Goldie locks treated Tobie when she didn't get her way. She asked Tobi in the name of lawful neutral good, "Don't you want to be my nigger?" That's not good! Also, an arsenal of bloody nuclear missiles to blow it up if rabbit god doesn't get it's way is a bit weak. I preferred wolf and lion god, and they were harsh, but they loved their children. Neptune stole Atlantis to give everyone golden plates, whilst Poseidon used it for the devil's casino which doesn't make sense, because we already had Las Vegas for that back in the 1970's, and 2022.
