From what I understand of the Seven Generations viewpoint, this would jive very, very well with Ecotopism, n'est-ce pas? BoArthur 15:15, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
- I've incorporated it into Ecotopism. As far as I'm concerned, you can de-prop this. BoArthur 18:24, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
- Will do. But I imagine it as extending beyond environmental issues and covering things like military and economic policy as well, not to mention the way one invests one's own money, cultivates friendships, on and on and on (for 7 generations at least). Benkarnell 20:39, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
- I think you're right, 100%. But I figure there will be enough overlap that what you've written about Seven Generations being central to NALien Ecotopic Circles is spot on. BoArthur 23:06, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
This is actually pretty similar to the original pre-Snorist mentality of the Central Asian nations. They don't have it enshrined in customary law that I'm aware of but they are used to looking and thinking seven generations back ("A man who does not know his ancestors for seven generations is no Qazaq" -proverb) and consequently, seven generations forward - for someone who teaches their children ancestral trees going back as far as anyone can remember, thinking seven generations forward is no great step of logic.
Undoubtedly this was radically modified by the dominance of SNOR-type regimes, but I'm sure it's making a comeback. Geoff 14:29, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Influence in the NAL
I think that this would be one of the major ideologies. I'm sure that there are others though that are much less concerned with the past and ecological and social responsibility, just as here. I mean, why else would the NAL engage in Nation building? (And yes, that last bit's a bit of propaganda.) BoArthur 16:20, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
