    Yes yes yes DO YOU BELIEVE that they launched Unity FOR A REASON or not?
    If you believe it, leaders of the neo-Third World have a reason to believe it too.
    It's that simple.

    I believe that some actors on Earth did so. Others withdrew, attempted to sabotage the mission, or tried to profit from it notwithstanding their conviction that it would fail spectacularly.

    It comes down to the question of timelines. If we suppose that Earth is doomed to an Extinction Event within the span of one lifetime, then it makes sense for everybody to try to get aboard. If we suppose that Earth is doomed over the course of multiple lifetimes, then it does not.

    There’s also the possibility that Unity would be built by a superpower coalition that chose to place only qualified experts on the crew, thereby excluding everybody else intentionally. Only stowaways like Morgan would skirt this restriction.

    Well I guess this debate has been instructive in that people will find a way to believe anything, and retcon it, if they are sufficiently vested in their own vision of "what happened".  My idea of a lot of world leaders is people jumping off the Titanic.  The kind of guy who shoves his way onto the lifeboat, damn the whole "women and children first" thing.

    You’re behaving like a child. There’s nothing to cry over. It was made clear to you from the very start that we begin with a very different set of assumptions about the fiction.

    A lot of people blame Presidents for taking vacations while they're in office for some reason.  Maybe they have no clue that it ain't exactly punching a clock for your shift.

    Those are the people who are determinedly seeking any seemingly “objective” metric by which to find a particular president lacking. They begin with the conclusion that wrong was done and are delighted every time they seem to find an article that gratifies their worldview, no matter how pedantic their arguments might seem to the rest of us.

    The big disaster of this election was that it demonstrated starkly just how enslaved we all are to motivated thinking. Partisanship makes hypocrites of us all.

  • For interested readers, let's collaborate on building a collection of 7 new factions to add to a simulation alongside the 7 retooled original factions. I'll revive the simulation and, if we can scrape up 7-8 players, we can run it here!

    Ok at this point you've pushed me to the point of total disinterest in your further thought.  I don't even see a path for responding to this, so I won't.  Except perhaps... how old do you think anyone is around here??

    Tiring.

    I think we insufficiently share values to bother with this anymore.  Unsubscribing from this thread.

  • Also, I've yet to receive a reply from Princess Foundry. Just figuring to mention that, if you are still interested in me voicing stuff for this.

    Sorry.  Totally my fault for dropping off Planet the last half a year or so.  Distracted with other projects, RL crisis... blah blah blah... the usual excuses here.  :doh

    YES!  Still VERY interested in sound and voicing help. :D
    Last message I sent from that email address was to you and haven't checked it since.  Barring any major catastrophes, will send some more info later today.

    Thank you kindly for being patient.
