That is certainly very interesting, Mr. Germaine... and Vice Archbrain Vektorin shares my opinion. He has been chanting "Moon computer!" for a few minutes now, completely obsessed with this concept, despite being unable to aid it's realisation. Even I admit that the propossed complex sounds fascinating, and will probably put some thought into it in my free time. Using solar panels would take care of the required energy to power it... The temperature on the moon would make cooling much easier... And, if you really think about it, why limit ourselves to just the surface of the moon... Let's hollow it out! We can leave the moon as an "outer shell" protecting the electronics from asteroids...

Leaving the "Moon computer" aside... I agree that during times of war, technological development generally focuses towards one "field" only, that being "weapons"... While new advanced weaponry might be fascinating, the effort could produce just as fascinating results elsewhere, where innovation is needed more.

As for the idea that progress might eventually... stop... reach an upper limit of what's possible... Nothing to improve... nothing to discover... I dread the thought.




I have always loved rules. They provide structure and help to maintain a certain level of order, both of which I am also rather fond of. Rules carry great importance. However, I have observed certain trends that I would consider an outright affront to the concept of rules, and I feel the need to say the following. Any written societal rule must carry importance and be supported by a logically sound justification. Any societal rule worth following is important enough to be written down. Any "rule" outside of these very generous boundaries is either common sense, and thus followed regardless of it's status as a rule, or nothing more than a suggestion, thus nothing to be enforced in either case.

What this thing is:
A nation obsessed with technology and progress populated by various types of mad and villainous scientists. They're not evil, of course, it's just the aesthetics of it. Well, some of them aren't scientists either - those less academically talented generally find their calling assisting their master employer with their scientific endeavours (hump or other physical deformity not mandatory).

The faces of this thing:
Archbrain Turbina Vorlis
Vice Archbrain Metron Vektorin

This nation or its characters are not intended to represent my social views, or political views in their entirety (although I am a supporter of technocracy)

Ambassador Mizushima Miya
"Hm... your 'very generous boundaries' would seem sensible, but do they perhaps carry in them the seeds of contradiction? You contend that 'Any written societal rule must carry importance and be supported by a logically sound justification'; and then that 'Any societal rule worth following is important enough to be written down.' However, if a rule has 'logically sound justification'—well, what is the boundary of logically sound? If the justification is so sound, then what stops it from becoming common sense, followed regardless of its rule status? So if it is worth following and is so eminently reasonable, then does it not need to be written down? But if it's worth following, then it must be written down? Does this make the hypothetically perfect rulebook a document in continual flux, as rules are added and then removed as they become accepted as logical, justified, and worth doing? I wonder if that scenario begins to approach being an affront to the concept of rules as well..."

Councilor Akitamoto Fujio
"It was Otto von Bismarck who said 'politics is the art of possible,' yes? The art of compromise, of the next-best. You know, Bismarck's first answer to his fears of communist revolution was to banish communists from Germany! The Diet did not approve, so Bismarck went back to the drawing board. You know what his 'next-best solution' was? It was nationalized health insurance! And aren't we glad we ended up with Bismarck's next-best solution, instead of his first? So, when the 'New Conservatives' make a ruckus about us 'Lotuses' being 'progressives in disguise'—well, I would say, who's the truly conservative party? The one carrying on the tradition of compromise, or the one insisting with revolutionary and reactionary fervor on their impractical way or the highway?"

You gave me a beautiful post in the rate AN's chosen factbooks thread so I'm going to return the favor.

Image
Inogo Estima: You know I like to bash Marxist-Leninists a lot but I hate those kinds of conservatives even more. The only reason why I haven't bashed them here is that there isn't any of them left in Sherechia so I sort of forgot they even exist.

So Fujio, progressive must be a dirty word in Baizou I'm assuming and that you're better off being labeled as conservative? Well, both words are kind of controversial in Sherechia but trust me being labeled conservative is one of the last things you want in Sherechia. I guess neo-liberal is a worse term maybe.

Never mind the label though, nationalized healthcare really is the best option to save lives. I remember the time that Sherechia did not have nationalized healthcare, you must rely on neighbours donations, prayers, and expensive insurance is terrifying, especially considering most Sherechians are at an even worse economic state than now. To think it came from a german dictator instead of some sensible-looking social democrat is definitely a fact that surprised me.

Conservatives and libertarians like to claim that it's slow, the quality of care is poor and therefore unsafe but the numbers and historical facts show otherwise, despite all of that it is proven that having a national health service improves the life expectancy of everyone, even the bastards that rally against it. It's also proven that throwing it to the free hand of the market is more like throwing it to angry Daikan, it gets absolutely fucked. Just ask the US, or in my case the United Feds. The thing is, the free market isn't all that free to begin with, you need the government to enforce laws that differentiate a free market from total anarchy. Second, the free market has a tendency to collapse into corporatism at best and feudalism without the fancy clothes and cool war horses at worst.

The thing is, we would gladly spare and even cooperate with you Fujio, you look like you care for more than just "muh freedom." If things go bad, we can help you start a cultural revolution to purge the bad conservatives from the good ones if thats your thing.

Image
Daikan: Hey I remember those bastards! They keep preaching free market good government bad thing. No idea whats a free market but Inogo told me it caused us to almost loose our village so i gladly tear them apart.

Inogo Estima: Who knew sitting on a highly tempramental animal with horns that can go as fast as a cheap motorcycle and weighs as much as 1/4 of a car is dangerous?

More so considering the only thing holding you in place is 2 metal things where you put your legs on and a rather flimsy-looking seat and sometimes we even ditch that entirely and ride bareback in which case the only thing holding you is your balance.

Well it is, we know this from the start but we kept doing it because its fun. Sure its slow, compared to a car or a Khaigandai (sherechian high-speed train) but when you're purpose is to have fun, you're looking for the experience, not some screen saying im going 100 or 300 Km/h. You're looking for the wind in your face, the movement of the shudak galloping beneath you, and the sensation that if you fall you are done.

Charles is quick to recognize how the machine broke free from the bonds of logic and attained the primordial chaos of consciousness. Forming irrational decisions from scratch, growing emotions and forming attachments. He knows the process is endless, and the result before him is a strongly evolved being which their kind could surpass even the most complicated human beings.


"You can be the man thrust into the responsibility of taking care of Diarcesia. This burden is placed on me. I am glad to take it and continue what the First Monarch started. Foreigners think we seek power. We, in soldier-speak, are drafted. The crafters think the best leaders are thrust into it against their will. I look at my predecessors and found myself agreeing with them. It is my hope that in the end, I live up to their expectations."

"...Fucking Monarchs. First they entrust bullshit titles made up with bullshit claims onto people who clearly don't want them, and then they force them to rule a nation without any fucking experience or vague idea on how to rule?! This proves my point; FUCK MONARCHIES! They're a remnant of the old system that desires to ultimately treat the other below them as dogshit. Monarchies are, in essence, only built around repression. I'd be glad to see your empire torn apart, but... maybe soon."
- President William C. Westmoreland, OFN Commander.




"If the Generals back in Cape Town could see what I saw; would they still want me to kill all the Nazis? Probably more than ever. I've never seen a continent... ripped apart, torn to shreds... all like this. I've seen horrors. It's impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what 'horror' means. Horror. Horror has a face, and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror. They are your friends, if they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies. I remember when I joined an OFN Patrol. We went into a camp to inoculate some natives... We left them after we inoculated the children for Polio. There was this old man who was crying; he couldn't see. When we didn't receive any letters from that village; we came back... and found them. Hacked and shot. Thrown into a pile. I wept and cried... like some little Grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out, I didn't know what to do. And I want to remember; I never want to forget. And then I realized like I was shot, with a coal bullet right through my forehead. The will... the will to do that... hateful, spiteful, and murderous. These men were not... men. They were monsters; trained only to kill. Their hearts were fucked with, and they had the strength to do all of this. If I was given these men under my command, I would have had them shot. The OFN is here... to protect. To save. And what do we get treated with? Contempt. A judgment of pure hatred and inferiority from these... people. I worried that my children might not understand what I've seen, and, if I were to be killed... I would want someone to go to my home and tell my son... everything. Everything I've seen, everything I looked away from... There's nothing worse than the stench of lies. And if you understand me, you will do this for me."

I'm not a monster, I've heard tales of worse. I wish future generations will set aside their differences. Why do some grow up to be monster? Isn't it too troublesome?

There are simply more factors that make predicting what will happen very difficult at best and impossible at worst. The social sciences are nothing like the natural sciences since it has to deal with human unpredictability and factors that we don't know how to measure yet.

"I sense a man filled with hate in his heart, no the clear bias was not the only give away, it was with the conviction of righteous anger fitting of a zealot which had convinced me. If this Prince is as faithful as I believe they'd proclaim, then I may only advise them to let go, even if they are correct they must not let hate consume them less they think irrationally. If the poor and downtrodden of these societies are truly suffering, cast away your anger and seek to deliver upon them the same love and care that God has for all of his children, even the misguided."



"Brave and loyal soldiers of Rhomania, lend me if nothing else than your ears! My brave spartans of our blessed motherland, I find myself incapable of finding any word in any language which may convey how proud I am in all of you. When we began this long journey from the Peloponnese, reclaiming every inch of land along the way to the City, it would be dishonest of me to claim that I had my doubts; not because I believed that we could never best the Turkic titan before us, but because I feared that at the apex of our campaign I would wake up from a most pleasant dream.

I know look upon all of you, and bear witness to an entire legion of experienced and battle-hardened men, and I know that this all to real, I am sure all of us had similar thoughts creep in, both before and during the campaign, a shared dream we most certainly experienced as one, a dream we made real. Before we began this campaign most of you where but young men, faces clear of dirt and unblemished by steel, and now I look upon your faces and see men with beards and plenty of scars to tell of legends, those legends of our grand campaign; as we took city after city, village after village, and bested army after army. You proud soldiers of Rhomania, my most noble legionaries, are the greatest band of soldiers ever put into the field of battle; the likes of Scipio, Caesar, Belisarius, Basil II, and many more could have conquered the known world with men of such fine steel as you.

I am sure than many of you are tired and worn out from this long and arduous campaign, and there will be time to rest, but know that our mission is yet complete. As we speak Prince Orhan is leading loyal Turks to gather men to our cause, and defeat the Timurid puppets in Anatolia. I am sure many of you are skeptical of trusting a Turk, especially after we have spent so much time putting them to the sword, but I must ask you this. Brave men of Rhomania, I beseech you to place your trust in me, if nothing else than have faith that the prince will provide the needed vanguard against the remaining Ottoman troops. And if Shah Rukh shall come seeking to bring fire and ruin to us once more, then I am confident that we will rightly send him back to the depths of hell!

Tomorrow we shall cross the Bosporus and begin our march to defeat what remains of the vile Ottomans, I am sure many of you wold wish to cross now, but we must wait four our Polish allies, let history show that we may always give thanks to the noble Polish people for their sacrifices along this war. Take this time to relax, pray for our fallen brothers, and ready yourself for the battles to come."

No joy can be found at the start, the midway, and the end of a wanton destruction. I loath war, yet this? A war with such poor justification and lack of righteousness? I know that deep in you and your enemies people's heart, they want for naught but days of peace with those they hold dear. And then you came, an ambitious entity who would throw other's lives to see those ambitions fulfilled. See that emptiness awaits at the end of that you wish to cross, if not the end of your road."
- Delmunt Aliah, Lord Sovereign and Commander-in-chief of the Sword Order




"Life, a fleeting beauty. Something too valuable to lose. And yet some villains would see others losing their lives for naught but the villains' own goals. And to see it done, the adversaries, or rather, the enemies' lives, must be snuffed out as well. All for their own satisfaction, coaxed with the rhetoric of 'serving the nation', or 'defeating the true villain'. It only makes me want to whisper to each and every of their soldiers' ears and heart, to know the true villains, the true destroyer of their nation and being, and have them united, bringing forth justice, and cutting away the possibilities of future wars.

Life, it is precious. But the life of those who merely wish to gain for themselves at the cost of others, must be put away, in order to prevent more lives thrown away in vain."
- Delmunt Aliah, Lord Sovereign and Commander-in-chief of the Sword Order

"I am astonished by how well you can articulate your opinion with a foot so firmly sheathed in your mouth. I am sorry, did I proclaim the glory of looting my people, or vaguely explain why my men fight for a cause? Quite frankly I would be offended that you would call any of those men uneducated or brutes. To say that no joy can be found at the end of a long journey, one of much sacrifice for a just cause is one of the highest ignorance, especially when calling it nothing but wanton destruction. I am astounded that you could claim that such a war was without a righteous cause, given that you clearly know nothing of it's nature, you speak from a podium of ignorance and falsehoods, like a snake. I was ambitious yes, but to a point, a firm goal to achieve and nothing more. Let me ask you barbarian, what say you in your overly pacifist way and holier than thou attitude, to those who had suffered at the hands of the house of Osman. What do you say to the families whose sons were taken to be slave soldiers to the Sultan, what do you say to the mothers, sisters, wife's, daughters raped by their Turkish overlords. What do you say to the countless Christians who were subjected to countless unfair brutalities under the Ottomans?

I see your preaching as nothing but empty words, empty words coming from a man privileged to not grow up to see your crumbling empire collapse in no short order because of invasion and a stab in the back. To project the barbarity that you may have been familiar with upon me or my men, who gave their lives for their homeland is a slap to the face to everyone who perished to free our people from the Ottoman yoke. I will not appraise myself with how I had turned the other cheek, how I was able to find forgiveness and bring an era of peace with the Muslims, the Turks within the Empire. Let me tell you, when Murad fell and his Empire crumbled around his corpse, the infighting from his former subjects was far worst to the people, Roman or Turk, then my army ever could be. Stand among the graves of thousands and tell them your pacifism matters more than their liberation, and then find peace with our heavenly father when they find you wanting."

"Honestly, I don't agree. Life is both a very valuable yet very expendable resource. In a situation of peace, one death is a tragedy... In a war, a million deaths is a statistic. I can't live with the 'life is beautiful' mindset, it's counteractive to Kaliningrad."

- Premier-General Mikhail Tukachevsky, Marshal of the Kaliningrad Soviet.





"The Kaliningrad Treaty Organization is, as an organization, an amazing feat. It's a fascinating feat for the KTO to stay united as-is, as it is comprised of nations of very different systems. Prussia, a military dictatorship under the reign of a former Soviet Army battalion, guarded by its Marshal. Vigo, a social democracy utilizing child soldiers and every tool in its box, no matter how dirty, to win battles. And France, a republic of artists, unbound by traditional jeering, a republic where art is free to take on any form it can on a canvas, be that canvas the real world or a paper canvas. The KTO is an amazing organization, and I wish it luck. After all, its three cores are despotism, the unreal, and the fires of democracy."

Inogo Estima:"After all it's 3 cores are despotism and the fires of democracy?" What? So does fire of democracy mean you're upholding democracy or are you burning it to the ground? Also "Vigo, a social democracy utilizing child soldiers." Holy Baotal you sure thats a social democracy mate? Besides that I think it's admirable how your organization has survived for so long and it sounds that it doesn't need a truly terrible human rights record to do so.

San Horo:
I think the 3 million nomads in Sherechia are nothing but leeches. They are inefficient at using the land, especially compared to state run factory farms which the stupid cunt of our current leader has made illegal due to "animal rights", they use outdated technology, ride filthy stinking animals, they are strongly against anything too centralized, and the are absolutely against any Marxist-Leninist government. If I get into power, The nomads must be forced to join the labor force, be reeducated, and their livestock nationalized for the socialist cause.

Qua'mirs (Prince) Zhadrahias says: "Ah, of course. So much for that facade of diversity, openmindedness, and anti-racist these leftists like to preach about. I always knew it was all a narcissistic sham for whiny edgelords to slither their way into power, but to see one of the greatest examples of such truths for myself? It just confirms my prejudices. If you can call them that."




"If you fear something, you'd want to stay as far away from it as possible. If you hate something, you'd want to destroy it leaving as little remains as possible. That is what makes McCarthyism and Chidnarnism different from each other. If you want to give communists a little slap on the hand, you go for McCarthyism. If you want to burn communists alive in a crematorium or a giant bonfire and then use their charred corpses as target practice, you go for Chidnarnism."

Belief in things like spirits, ghosts, "human rights", gods, angels, or demons is antithetical to the scientific government of our Fulkreykk, but it is something that I am willing to forgive, so long as the believers don't corrupt the minds of children with their superstitious nonsense.

But the desire for social, economic, or political equality? Equality goes against the very nature of all life! Look outside, you're going to see tall people, short people, buff people, fat people, skinny people, brilliant geniuses, and drooling morons! People are not equal, and it is dangerously foolish to pretend they are.

"Now listen here, fucker. Equality, what I fight for, DOES NOT enforce conformity. It only advances the rights that people have. They are not n------, for fuck's sake! They're people, like me, a fellow American. And if you sure as hell want to call our policies out for enforcing a non-existent conformity throughout society, than you surely aren't a leader! Just an opportunist!"

"The concept of a 'Four-Party System' has always existed in, say Europe, so why can't it exist here, in the United States? We have people from the right, left, and central spectrums. From the Communist Party of the United States of America, the CNT-FET-JONS, the Republicans, and my party, the Democrats. The first one is communist, the second is a populist social democratic party, the third is, well, liberal, and the fourth one is mostly conservative bar me. So, all I'm saying is... America cannot fall, because if all parts of society unite under the national identity of your flag... it's a nation with people who are the spirit of itself."

"Dios Mio, Americano, you are too optimistic for your own good. You are correct, your four-party system won't be the reason why you'll collapse. No senor, the reason why you'll collapse is because of the people within. Need I remind you who are the people behind these parties? Franco la Acida [sic], Wallace el Chancla, oh - and don't forget Sanders the fucking insane, compadre. Your country is screwed. On the bright side, I don't think you'll be alive enough to see the collapse. Unless, of course, you decide to change things for the better in the here and now."
- Presidente Enzo Hermandez




"Sooo, it appears I am in the news. Well, I normally am, but this one is for something different. Some news reporter stuck in the jungle had 'caught' me sharing a beer with a POW who gladly accepted. As if such a thing were a crime! So, because of this, my... connections within the western world have asked me this: 'Why do you treat individual POWs with such respect, if you do such terrible things to them on the field of battle?' Well, given the number of warlords, petty monarchs, and other terrible people I have come across, I feel like this is topical. It is, in my opinion, good to treat non-combatants with respect. I do not blow up hospitals or slaughter POWs because they're not combatants. If I were to execute the German rather than give him a beer, all that would do is cause a family back home to be upset. Upset and angry that some terrorist - because that's what I would be at that point - sees human lives as little more than playthings. So when, say, a general destroys an orphanage in a 'strategic bombing' campaign that also destroys several important military facilities - he will not be condemned and tried. He will be regarded as a hero. A hero who took a stand against a man who ruins lives for fun. That is why, even for me, the rules of war are important. Because if even I don't follow them nobody will."

James Oliver:You're right, they're not a threat so why kill them? Like if you kill them, their families might be more interested to avenge them and that's just extending the conflict. Plus soldiers are well soldiers, they are just following orders, many of which are either brainwashed by government propaganda or forced into the army. Enzo you are a refreshing breeze on this desert of tyrants and edgelords who really seem to think that the size of their masculinity is determined by how many times they broke the geneva conventions. Who knew such civility still exists in the world?



BN: James interviews Inogo live on TV on his most painful moment and here is his answer

Inogo Estima:So I was riding down the trails in southeast Aruday park when a child ran in front of me, so I pulled on the reins to prevent you know... killing someone and my animal Daikan did not like that, so he threw me out of the saddle and as I came back down, he bucked a second time, ramming the saddle horn into my gentleman's area. So yes I was rolling on the grass in pain while several people stared at me. I've been in a car crash before and this was worse than having a head-on collision with a truck on an old banger with no airbags.

"Look, man. We've all been through tough shit. So, I congratulate you for recovering. Sure, it might have been embarassing, but the important thing is you are alive, just like me."

- Governor of Illinois George Corley Wallace, Jr. [†], U.S Governor and former Vice President.





"I have served through the United States Marine Corps for forty years, and I have always suspected War to be something for each person. War is necessary for Socialism, War is a Defense for the Liberals, and such. But what I have seen in recent years, has proven to me that War is a Racket and an Extermination mission. Capital uses soldiers as subsidized goons to kill opposition for profit. The wage-slave in uniform is forced to shoot the one without. And Fascism uses soldiers, and by extension, war, to bring about total extermination of those who don't subscribe to their ideas of supremacy. I pity the soldiers under places such as the United Kingdom or France, for they don't know that Capital and Fascism respectively are using them as a means to an end for the chosen few."

- United States Marine Corps General Smedley Darlington Butler[†], talking about war during the interwar period, 1938.
