Q: Why do anarchists only do functional programming?

A: They want to abolish the state, obviously.

@Elizafox functional programming is the realm of theocrats, they worship Church

@calvin @Elizafox I hear that functional programming acolytes in India and many regions of Asia have a particularly fond liking of Curry too.

@Elizafox That must be why the soviets experimented with ternary computers. They needed even more.

@Elizafox libertarianism doesn't actually *eliminate* the state, it just uses the monadic pattern to pass a localized state from computation to computation using a series of sequentially chained callbacks
