I think many of the books take the form of an argument Terry's having with himself, and sometimes he doesn't appear to have come to a ready conclusion.

In the interest of not provoking any more buffer overflows, I won't engage in a lengthy refutation. I'll simply point out that Pratchett obeys Correia's Maxim ("Be as pedantic as you like as long as you're entertaining first") so the actual end result of Vetinari and Lipwig's machinations isn't as stark as it might otherwise be.


Bit late. Bunged a few quid in the tip jar.
