>>114967933>It isn't JUST about economics. and economic policy is by definition tied to a nations political and social norms.
True but its too muddled going into social ideas, especially if we DONT have information on much of the political/social norms of the nations. You agree they are left wing so it doesnt matter anyway>You can say you have "libertarian views" without actually being in a real libertarian society. Just like every fucking libertarian on 4chan.
Yes? If you live in x society it doesnt mean you are an x>I would call the fact that the earth kingdom monarchy doesn't have any rules at all over their citizens or really any presence whatsoever in their lives outside of Ba Sing Se as pretty libertarian
If the earth kingdom was really authoritarian, they would indeed have more effect on their citizens. But i only said they were mildly authoritarian. The fire nation would also be in effect less authoritarian if they were less modern and lived on the earth continent>theres a whole tribe thats allowed to just roll around in the mud in some swamp with no concern about authorities of any kind.
Nobody else has reason to care about, and may not even know of them>bandits and bounty hunters overrun the place with no problems.
Doesnt mean much. They are a huge kingdom at war so they cant enforce the peace, this happens all the time historically>The people of the earth kingdom do whatever the fuck they want. in some areas there are towns with more local control but that's just kind of the obvious result of having a national government that doesn't do shit and why libertarianism is trash.
Yeh but these mid sized places are not libertarian. I would call omashu mildly authoritarian as well
