💤 I'm definitely not a nap person. I just can't nap.
Starting today, trying to squeeze in my daily routines a "forced 20 minutes" of laying down and closing my eyes.
People say I'm robotic for asking "how's it going today" every time I see someone for the first time in a day, but I genuinely care and want to know how people are doing 🤷♂️ sometimes they're doing okay, but sometimes they really need a #nap
I have something in common with my 16-month-old nephew: we both need naps.
Lots of hot-weather fresh air today, so a pre-dinner #nap might be in order.
Thank goodness we have a long weekend. I was so tired that I had a #nap late this afternoon. Must be getting old!
Well, I managed to #nap for at least 2 1/2 hours this afternoon. I’m still not fully awake.
Today’s sleep aid: a very long and boring YouTube video about building crazy megastructures. I think I “watch” more on television when I’m asleep than when I’m awake.
Having a birthday is as good as time as any for a #reintroduction ! I'm a 35 yo #gay guy living in Ohio (US) trying to get in touch with his silly side on here. Sometimes that silliness leads to NSFW happenings, just so ya know! 🙊
Some of my interests include #games -- currently idly playing #OctopathTraveler2 , but also enjoy #Pokemon, (J)RPGs, and board games like #Scrabble -- along with #reading and #writing about whatever strikes my fancy (these days, usually something about #philosophy or #animals or both). I also like good sushi and a good #nap or #CuddlePuddle . Happy #PlantDaddy and future #CatDaddy .
Feel free to message me if you wanna get in touch! Always happy to chat! 😁
I am the honorary captain of team nap. Big believer in a mid-day rest to rejuvenate.
Do #ClimateChangeAdapation interventions have #impacts and are they #sustainable?
#Evaluation of #German #development cooperation in the sectors #agriculture #water #environmentalprotection & support for #NDCs & #NAPs.
• #ClimateChange-related #shocks & #stressors, #adaptation capacities partially addressed, but not enabling environment
• Nature-based solutions and infrastructure interventions particularly effective
• #NDC & #NAP support mostly effective
Well I just took a 5pm #nap so… anyone want to come to my 1am “oh God why can’t I sleep” party? 😭

CWs and Weber's Monopoly on Legitimacy
Max Weber defined government, in a much misinterpreted phrase, as "the only human community which lays claim to the monopoly on the legitimated use of physical force". ALL TERMS ARE SIGNIFICANT. Far too many readers focus on "use of physical force", but any playground bully, mean drunk, or capricious idiot can use violence. Government requires legitimacy, typically only bequeathed by the governed, and a monopoly on that legitimacy, meaning no other agent can make a countering claim within a given region.
The definition is reflexive and tautological:
- An entity with a monopoly on the legitimate use of force is a government or state, regardless of what it calls itself.
- A region with no monopoly on legitimacy is ungoverned.
- An entity lacking legitimacy, regardless of what it calls itself, is not a government.
Rather than casting this as a monopoly on force, it's far more useful to consider this a monopoly on legitimacy.
The model is, as all models are, wrong. But it is, as some models are, also useful, in two principle ways.
One is that it provides a useful lens through which to consider government, governance, and polity, stripped of most ideological or structural biases. We can ask how, or whether, a democracy, personality cult, autonomous collective, theocracy, dictatorship, representational republic, monarchy, company town, oligarchy, or other forms have legitimacy and/or monopoly over use of force.
The other is that in being so widely misquoted, misinterpreted, and misrepresented, it is a highly useful bullshit filter for identifying those who are either ignorant of what they speak, or are intentionally attempting to mislead, in discussions of governance.
This includes virtually all Rothbardian/Randian/Misian Libertarians and their "nonaggression principle", notably Charles Koch and Penn Gilette, both of whom explicitly cite this as the foundation of their belief. From a false premise all that follows is false.
