    Yeah, I'm very P but also have a sense of order about things, for the purposes of keeping things stable enough to experience freedom.

    Put another way, chaos without order is essentially cancerous. Order without chaos is dead.
    There has to be some framework/structure in order that an entity can prosper.

    (For one small example, the human body is an exercise in ordered diversity. Everything has its place and works in a fairly predictable way, but there's lots of variation between the bodies of human beings.)

    It's just finding that sweet spot where exploration and growth is not unduly inhibited.
    The imposed order has to benefit the group / enable life.

They started a forum and said "WTF are these people doing to my forum? I better set up some rules."
    Wow!! .. you underestimate humanity a little.. Not saying that is why this forum or any forum has mods..( I am positive that is not the motivation here)
    But if you think there aren't people who crave bossing people around and restricting their freedoms you haven't been watching the news and/or
    paying attention to history.
    It's doesn't have to make sense to be real.. Lot's of things don't make sense.

    We all know there is evil and control in the world.
    But he was discussing this place, I think.

    And this, my dear friends, is why there are mods.

    Good afternoon.
