Yes. Perhaps only for the challenge, truth be told. But it'd be an interesting IC conflict.

Although, ICly, I actually suspect Lyras and Neo-Erusea to get along just fine.

That's... a very well put point. I suppose I make the assumption that people are considering a properly integrated combat doctrine in the employment of technology (its why I make the design choices I do), and I suppose that is perhaps a little naive of me. Food for thought... Basically what I see t...

Sorry to revisit the question from a couple of pages ago (I've been busy), but 'wankish' is strong, and implies that there is something actually wrong with my understanding of the technology, or that I've used it in a manner contrary to physics or to good RP-conduct.

As much as I dislike some of the wankish Lyran military tech, I really can't hold anything against the guy for catering to the prevailing meta of NS II.

I don't recall it ever being uncontroversial, at least on some level. It has generally been quite hostile to 'conservative' (I use the phrase loosely) positions in all their forms, but there has been considerable fire in some of the threads even outside that area.

I suspect so. Political correctness requires constant denial of the increasingly evident manifestations of cultural incompatibility. Cultural incompatibility? Would a German never rape someone?

Probably not quite appropriate topic for these forums, but I personally agree that the situation with regards to immigration into Germany/Sweden/the EU is unsustainable.

This is not an isolated incident, as it happens.

Well, it depends on what one means by traditional values. But supporting a strong presence of institutionalized morality and tradition in the state isn't all that extreme. Hell, it isn't even exclusively right wing. A damn good portion of right-wingers don't support "traditional values," ...

yes. that doesn't mean white people are innately superior to every group of people. it just means that by and large a white person, in say, the US, will have an easier life and more opportunities than a non-white person, because we spent centuries specifically making it that way. i like to use apar...

Proportionally, yes. But I see no just reason why said provision of services could not be race-neutral, allowing all who have need of them to access it.

Under law, at least here in Australia, whites actually DO get the short end of the stick. There are a number of acts of legislation that deliberately provide for the provision of services to non-white groups, and explicitly disallow European-descent people from utilising them. There are plenty of E...
