I don't think the out of order release that they used added much to the overall story because there's so few events that even carry over from episode to episode. So many episodes felt like they could just happen whenever.
> make everyone transfer over to ubermensch sleep cycle 20 minute nap every 4 hours - so six 4 hour cycles a day. 2 hours sleep a day. That way people can dedicate 8 hours to a chosen work venture, 8 hours on study and self improvement and 8 hours on personal relaxation.
> job rotations Everybody works everywhere. Every 6 months you are given a new job. You are told before hand what it will be to give you 6 months to prepare for it.
> mandatory cull Every year citizens need to do a physical and mental aptitude test (based on age). If you fail one annual test, you need to sit for a special test taken every 4 years. If you fail the special test you are placed in a Battle Royal style fight to the death, testing both mental and physical abilities. The survivor gets to rejoin society.
Babies born with serious disabilities are left to die. Babies that survive, even with disabilities are given a fair chance to survive in society - but to societies standards.
> no money You don't earn money. You get a credit stipend every week which you can use for personal purchases. Accommodation, food, medical and amenities are payed for by the state.
> trustworthy leadership All leaders are male Eunuchs without families and raised from birth to rule as machines. A ruling caste.
> no 'traditional' family units Pregnant women join covens where they can raise their children in a supportive environment. Men can volunteer to work and support covens (like nurses/caregivers). As soon as a child hits puberty they join a unit of similar aged young adults. Everyone lives in small units of up to 12 people based on personality and disposition. These units are mixed. Men and women are encouraged to start relationships, but cannot live together.
> justice Any crime is punishable by armed service. The state is in a perpetual war footing, so by committing a crime a citizen will have to fight (and possibly die) for the greater good.
Jobs are split into levels. You don't just get allocated a doctor position for example.
It's based on aptitude and experience.
Say you are 13, just hit puberty and you've joined your first unit and given your first job allocation in a hospital. The job will be something low level, simple and with no responsibility. Like cleaning. After the 6 months are up, you do a survey, write about your experience and whether you enjoyed it or not. All this information gets fed into the allocation system. Your supervisor then does a report and if it is good your preferences will be updated on the system.
Now for the next 5 years you do a further 10 job allocations and a few of them you didn't enjoy, and some of your supervisor reports reflected less aptitude in certain areas, the system will steer you back to a healthcare allocation.
So each allocation gives you a further direction in society. Say for the next 10 years, and 20 allocations later, you have acted as a nurse, health administrator, psychological assistant, mortician, pathologist assistant and so on - loosely healthcare based positions. So you've spent the past 15 years (aged 28 now) in and around healthcare and have a fairly good general knowledge of healthcare, and the system has tagged you for streamlining into professional healthcare (ie. doctor, surgeon, etc.) At this point the system will start allocating assistant positions in healthcare. Could be secretary for a doctor, dentist attendant, something higher up the food chain.
You do this for another 5 years, spent some time in surgeries, done some paramedic work, have a fairly good grasp of professional healthcare and THEN the system tags you for a doctor.
So instead of getting just a straight up 30 something who bulled their way through med-school and crammed for their exams, you get a well rounded doctor who has seen some shit and has a very generalist knowledge of medical treatment.
> more people are eligible for professional positions and can be placed in a short period of time One of the big issues of modern society is lack of professionals. There are always shortages of one position or another, and it literally takes decades to fill those positions because of the hoops that need to be jumped through (school, university, work placement, rise through the ranks). With this system you can fill professional positions in 6 months. Don't have enough doctors? Here is a list of people who can do it, and have the aptitude - it will only take 6 months to make them work ready.
> over supply of professionals can be easily remedied Everybody hates losing their job because if you are a professional, what the hell else are you going to do instead of your vocation? In this system it doesn't matter. Too many doctors? You don't need to be made redundant and work as a taxi driver (you would be surprised how often this happens). You just get moved to another position that does require workers in the same field - or if you want - you can do something else.
> advisers to the leadership know their shit and have risen through the ranks The Eunuch rulers don't know shit about society or people or industries or commerce and rely on advisers to govern effectively. These advisers are pulled from ranks based on experience and performance. Suddenly there are people at the top, advising those that rule who know exactly what it is like to wipe shit from the floor and work in low level positions across the spectrum because they were there and they have worked in a wide variety of areas for the last 50 years.
The ultimate meritocracy, taking the best parts of autocracy, imperialism, chronocracy and technocracy.
I'm an atheist myself, but I was raised a christian and I studied Buddhism, Shinto, and Islam. To me religious study from a historical context is a valuable learning tool.
The issue with religion however is that it comes with its own laws. So suddenly people are trying to follow two systems of law, which may or may not interfere with each other (and the states laws should be absolute).
I would say that religion should be a mandatory part of historical study, but its practice should be discouraged (as it interferes with the practices of the state). So citizens are aware of it in a historical context, but they don't believe in it literally.
The male Eunuchs (the ruling class) are a caste broken into four cadres, each cadre has a specific agenda. One cadre is interested in war and expansion, another in commerce and social care, another in building and industry and the final cadre's agenda is science, art and culture.
At the top of the government are four ruling seats each represented by one the cadre. Every four years one of the ruling seats sits as the supreme seat. The supreme seat sets the strategic outlook for the state (be it war, building and industry, science and art or a focus on commerce and social welfare). However the supreme seat can be overruled by a absolute majority of ruling seats. Below the ruling seats are the lower seats (or senate) made up of 16 lower sitters (4 from each cadre). Majority of lower seats can overrule the supreme seat or the ruling seats. In the case of a 50/50 split on a decision either the ruling or supreme seats can break the tie.
The ruling class are made up entirely of abandoned and unwanted male children. They get a special education based on selflessness, servitude and furthering mankind. Before puberty they are castrated. The ruling class train to live without emotion and to detach themselves from the citizens. In the state the ruling class are below the citizens and their duty is to serve the people and the state. Like the allocation system, they have a similar system where they serve in a variety of roles for the state. Each cadre provides specific education and indoctrination into their specific wants and needs.
The idea is that every 4 years the state changes gears. Each 4 year cycle the society as a whole should push a certain agenda.
The ruling class are ruled by principles. The core principles of survival, growth, expansion, and refinement, are the core tenants of the four cadres, and the state.
In the case of an alien invasion the ruling class would decide the best course of action. In the case of overwhelming force perhaps submit and subversively take over. In the case of equal force, perhaps fight. If the aliens wanted to trade or make peace, then go with something that would take advantage of that.
Another core tenant of the state is that it must always be at war - with someone or something. A singular goal to focus the state and the people into constant action.
Another aspect of the society is that each child will be trained to fight and get continued training into adulthood. Every citizen should be able to be mobilized at any moment.
I'd rather not have my dick cut-off. I'd prefer to set the whole system up and just watch from afar over the centuries to see how it goes. But it would be a glorious Empire. A second Rome, a fourth Reich, another Sparta.
Capitalism and consumerism is such a waste. Humans could be glorious conquerors of the stars if we got our shit together.

That way people can dedicate 8 hours to a chosen work venture, 8 hours on study and self improvement and 8 hours on personal relaxation. So 10 hours of sleep a day? How would this handle narcolepsy or insomnia?
>> justice >Any crime is punishable by armed service. The state is in a perpetual war footing, so by committing a crime a citizen will have to fight (and possibly die) for the greater good. >any crime 0/10 would join an underground revolution.
20 minutes every 4 hours over a 24 hour period adds up to 2 hours of sleep a day.
22 effective waking hours. The side effect of this sleep cycle is higher energy needs, so people need more meals. I'm doing the sleep cycle at the moment and I need to eat about 4 good meals a day (and 2 snack meals).
>>> justice >>>Any crime is punishable by armed service. The state is in a perpetual war footing, so by committing a crime a citizen will have to fight (and possibly die) for the greater good. >>any crime >0/10 would join an underground revolution.
Yep. Any criminal act, as dictated by the state. There would be a process, but generally if you do the crime you need to work the debt off in armed service.
The possibility of fighting is high, but the military needs other services. This is to discourage any criminal activity against the state and the greater good of society.
>>137145840 >no answer to the question on insomniacs or narcoleptics Either way, 2 hours a day won't bode well with study followed by work. People are going to be spending most of their personal time sleeping. Which will lead to people many people only getting work in their life. People will be miserable. >This is to discourage any criminal activity against the state and the greater good of society. This will turn all of your soldiers into psychos. Seriously, a lot of people who do crimes don't do them because they think they're wrong. They think the law is wrong, and in the insane schedule they're on, we're probably just looking for an escape. Not going to get into that but the point is when you factor that with throwing them into risking their lives. Your army is going to have some pretty shitty morale. Expect a lot of deserters, suicide and other horrors. War is already pretty shit, being thrown into one you don't want any part in fighting will drive some people fucking crazy.
I don't know the causes behind insomnia so I can't comment on that. If you have narcolepsy - serious narcolepsy - you might be screwed.
The state won't look kindly on mental or physical deficiency. If you can't keep up with societies standards its off to Battle Royal for you.
Polyphasic sleep cycles are pretty great, but you can't do it overnight. It took 6 months of training before I was fully polyphasic doing the ubermensch sleep cycle. Now when I put my head down and count to ten I'm out instantly, and I wake up in 20 minutes without an alarm and feel refreshed. I also hit REM immediately upon going to sleep.
From anecdotal evidence of long time polyphasic sleepers there doesn't seem to be any negative side effects, but there hasn't been that much research done as it's a fairly new idea.
Once you get used to it, polyphasic sleep is amazing. I do about 12 hours of work a day, AND get to play vidya AND watch chinese cartoons WHILE still getting time exercise.

The weak will be culled and the strong will remain. I have no doubt there will be many people who can't hack it, but that leaves superior genes to propagate and create a stronger society.
It's a common theme. Sky crawlers affected me deeply and made me think about it. The US uses war and false flag operations to keep itself at war with one enemy or another to boost military spending and keep the economy chugging along.
>>137146724 >If you can't keep up with societies standards its off to Battle Royal for you This won't go well at all. People will find this unfair, lose their shit when loved ones die. And start an uprising. Not only that, your military is full of people who don't want to fight because they were forced in. There's no possible way this could work.
>>137149095 Dude, like I said. The biggest flaw in your system is because you're putting this on humans. This shit society that murders peoples family for having sleeping impairments will be totally fucking twisted. The military will be composed of young adults and teens who will be on fucking edge.
>>137147050 >This won't go well at all. People will find this unfair, lose their shit when loved ones die. And start an uprising. Nah, just get a starter generation or two brainwashed and the'll love being honored to die. People won't rise up as long as they have food on the table and a bed to sleep in. The whole human rights thing and individualism is a new fad anyways.
>>137149526 >The whole human rights thing and individualism is a new fad anyways. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_revolutions_and_rebellions Ok, don't get sassy with me. Just saying your hypothetical nation wouldn't work.
Also yes the idea of universal human rights is fairly new and societal defined.
>Here's a lot of rebellions throughout history Most of which not instigated by normal people except in cases of extreme deprivation, and instead instigated by third parties. Control culture and you control people.
>>137149770 >in cases of extreme deprivation Killing people for having disorders probably won't go well. As disorders don't always pop up on birth and they just throw-away the baby. People will get attached something can just be thrown in. Someone gets killed by the system and someone who cares about that person gets pissed. This will happen a lot, especially as it grows. Not only that but culture is usually made by people. That's a thing citizens do best, make culture. Controlling it, and limiting people will also piss them off. This anon's nation won't work.
>>137149910 Ehh, maybe. But there are plenty of cultures where men would love to die for the good of society though. Altruistic suicide is a thing and has been forever. Again as I said this individualistic streak that's been showing up lately is not always the norm. If you foster enough of that in people perhaps you could get around those feelings.
>>137150101 "Democracy" sucks especially much and is inherently corrupted to the point where people living in democracies think that corruption is completely normal and just part of the system. It's a smoke and mirrors simply giving illusion of power to the masses. From neoreaction standpoint, where systemic stability is among top priorities, it is a clever design indeed, since it keeps the plebs content enough to not complain about essentially technocratic decisions, where elected puppets usually implement policies handed to them by experts so that they can claim that they were not liable, but just simply following "best policy". Hence it really doesn't matter who gets elected. The bad thing is that the people actually making decisions are not responsible to any degree, they are hard to identify and hence democracy in itself is the doom, not the results of it. It is the ultimate government form designed to blind everyone and deceive everyone on everything, Hence, it is ultimately immoral and unjust. That inbuilt immorality and irresponsibility has lead time and time again to catastrophes of governance, namely fascism and nazism, both descendants of progressive democracy.
