You don’t think liberty and discipline are incompatible, do you?

@cblgh study the safe path through territories of infinite unforseeable potentials that avoids every one of the infinite unforseeable dead ends that wait there

@cblgh Discipline and liberty coexist delicately, it is no simple thing. Liberty means open potentals, and with more potentials comes potential for war and the other horsemen, which discipline wants to forever preclude. Liberty seems to want to rend open our fates to the winds even when it knows we will likely die of it.

I don't know how to explain this yet, but I've been getting the impression that formalisations of agency are essentially descriptions of the thin line where they're in balance.
