NS stats are mostly canon, but serve more as a guideline than anything else.
Collectivism, capitalism, authority, and individuality all do not function in a vacuum, or at least not on a large enough scale to be worth basing an ideology around, and they must all be tempered by the opposing force. (Not a centrist, by the way, but they do raise good points, and they're probably the most sane and level headed ideology - and yes, mine is no exception.)

Every person killed pushes the invention of calculus closer to us, and once someone discoveries it a only a few years ago then it won't be one of the courses you have to take :p

Or I could memorize the fundamental theorems of Calculus, go back in time, kill everyone who invented calculus, and then invent calculus. Yesss, this is a good plan.

A dangerous game you'd be playing there. You'd get students from the future coming back in time trying to kill you to get out of calculus on a regular basis.
