Campaign!

G'day, fellow RationalWikians! Don't forget to visit the Campaign page of the 2016 Board of trustees election in order to make your voice heard. Suggested activities include:

  • Endorsing select candidates (lending a hand to your loyal henchmen and/or glorious overlords!)
  • Anti-endorsing select candidates (character-assassinating your hated opponents!)
  • Providing moar goat (please wipe afterwards)
  • Just asking questions to the candidates

Your participation might help other users better direct their votes. More importantly, it'll show the world that we've yet to go full Citizendium in terms of election hype!

Common purpose is a legal doctrine stating that all participants in a crime are responsible for its consequences, even if it wasn't the original intention. Thus, for example, if a gang of criminals agree to rob a building by knocking out the security guard, they are all deemed to be guilty of murder if the knocker-out kills the guard. One of the more notorious uses of common purpose was the trial of the Sharpeville six[wp], a group of protesters in Apartheid-era South Africa sentenced to death when the mob they were part of murdered a local politician.
