Perl politics,perl government, perl united .... etc

Well, the poll was about places (where people go or gather to... well, do something!) while politics is an abstract concept and government is not necessarily so abstract, but far from being an actual place, unless you take into account the palaces of politics. Either way, I don't like your suggestion, since it stresses the idea of an institutional Perl whereas Perl, notwithstanding $Larry and @Larry -nay, thanks to them!- is much a community thing, written and mainteined by the community for the community. Real people, for the most part, gather in a pub, in a cinema, in a factory... sometimes in an asylum... not in a government house! Also the hinted idea of a Perl party sounds much like "closed mind" to me: I am a Perl supporter all the way, and I have a bad opinion of e.g. Python... but even as a metaphor I couldn't stand the image of a Perl party against a Python party.


Fools run the government
Sick forein policy
Their words sound valiant
But their hands are green
Unending quest for power
Taxes that make us slaves
Don't believe a word of it
Ignore the f**ked up things they say
Cause I'm gonna make it on my own
Dictator on a throne
Make my own philosophy
A citizen who's really pissed
United Anarchists
Give me death or liberty

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
