Obviously, this matters, because now I can't compare the bonus comic to ULG's "Those who walk away from Omelas", where it's a stupid child being tortured for the happiness of the society.

I think the issue stems from there being a traditional link between the metaphysical sort of libertarian free will and the political sort of practical free will recognized by law.

Just found a relevant clip by someone I admire:

My guess is that it's broken.

I think the username 'Guest' may have already been taken. Try a different one, like [BG☼B] Lluna_Starbaze5723

Ah, that one seems taken, too. Looks like you're shit outta luck.
