System Dodging

February 17, 2010

45 minutes in the Pt. 2 Walking Eye interview of Ron Edwards has a really valid issue.

I remember playing Dogs in the Vineyard with some folks and someone going into mini-fit mode because conflicts actually held consequences and they couldn’t simply backslide or “try again”. And then watching in play, as they attempted to avoid going into conflicts at every opportunity.

This, after the person had read the book, and was excited about it. I should have realized at the time they were excited by the concept, and were still thinking “system doesn’t matter” the whole way.
