re: #339 William Lewis

I think that the scenario most of them imagine is:
A) Society collapses from X (invasions by “others”, ecological, plague, etc)
B) People wander out from untenable cities and have what little they have plundered
C) They have strongholds with large stockpiles from before and plundering
D) People line up to be “protected” by the virtuous “knights” in exchange for labor and food supplied to the local baron who then passes tribute up the food chain to the strongest of them.
E) That strongest one crowns himself and sets about recreating the golden age of 1100AD England

That’s the fantasy. It underlies a lot of libertarian and monarchist fantasy. One example that throws a huge amount of White Supremacism maintained via WMD’s (the use of mustard gas to kill ravening hordes of blah peoples) is “Lucifer’s Hammer.”

The golden age right before The Anarchy that tore England apart? That golden age?
