I'd switch Yang and Santiago (Yang purity, Santiago supremacy). Santiago's got free prototypes. Yang will happily do the job with a mass of (highly trained, if you've got Command Nexus) AK-47's if he can pull it off, and he's got the whole fortress thing going. Shang Yang emphasizes force even over organization. Successful blunt effort today is better than refinement tomorrow. Supremacy emphasizes tools, which Chinese terrain was never suited for (at least with regards agriculture).
You have Marr and H'minee mixed up.
I haven't the faintest idea why you've made Morgan a green...
That's an interesting take, but I think that 's focus on "mind over matter" and "Learn to overcome the crass demands of flesh and bone" very much lend themselves to a Supremacy way of thinking, even if his tactics are more reminiscent of purity.
, on the other hand, is a survivalist, very much focused on the survival of humanity, and so fits Purity much better in outlook.
Not at all. is all about Transcendence (either getting it himself with a Transcendence victory, or calling in superiors who will do it with a Progenitor victory, or clearing obstacles and then figuring out what to do with a Conquest victory). Transcendence is fundamentally harmony-based (especially the Progenitor take on it).
No, BE Harmony is just Green
and Morgan's mainline propoganda was just that he would provide purity-style creature comforts to his followers.
Admittedly I'm not the biggest BE expert, but I understand Harmony to be more about adapting to the new world than about not polluting it.
No, it was that he would provide comfort and wealth.
That's green.... Deidre even mentions adapting to the environment and not running off old earth models in contrasting herself with Morgan.
and Harmony would rather avoid even replacing native plants with home plants, an option I saw in one of the few videos I bothered watching.
I was quoting the material. Morgan's propoganda is creature comforts.
No, mentions not polluting the environment
Green, which is about not damaging the world. The "green path" has a minor Harmony element, but it is not at all the same.
And "creature comforts" is compatible with any of the affinities, so that proves nothing.
She talks about adapting to it in the fiction "Journey to Centauri." Gaians get extra fungus food. Re: weather paradigm gaian religion about adaptation and all that.
This is really a weak argument, I don't know why you're splitting hairs to try to find a difference between harmony and green.
Greens with a genetic modification shtick. wow, big difference. And you have the nerve to suggest that Harmony doesn't care about not polluting.
A supremacy robot isn't even a creature.
You could argue that the corporations are supremacist, but most of his faction is wealthy couch potatoes.
Which has no connected affinity, and therefore isn't really relevant to the discussion.

I still can't believe you try to argue that Morgan the capitalist is a green.
I think that it's because they want to be humans instead of cyborgs or aliens.
I argue that Harmony and Green have some correlation but are far from identical.
