What form of dissent this takes I don't know, but hell, two guys could get into an argument of a girl for all I know, and one guy gets the other guy killed or shunned and then is never punished for it because he's so damn popular.
Exactly. It's exactly what I had in the back of my mind for my Convicted by Public Opinion
argument. It could be for something as apparently trivial as this.
I just don't think it can happen; anarchy allows for cults of personality to develop. That's dangerous enough now, where such groups can cut you off from everyone you love, but in anarchy there's nothing to prevent those from forming everywhere, because hey, freedom of association.
I can see some of Savage's hated Moral Guardians
falling under (or forming
) one of these — put them under a Dark Messiah
, and who can stop them killing all that stand before them, and gaining more followers?
In fact, for whatever view you can think of, it'll be dangerously easy for one to occur and chronically hard to stop, especially if you get several at once, fighting against each other...
We can be Heroes, just for one day.
