    Well, get grinding mate. I had to get R7= Ensign to be part of the Ross 128 takeover. But realistically, Exbeur is not a viable target. BBFA are well established, well organized and Exbeur is a high population system so change there would be slow, heavy work. "Tell him he's dreamin'" But while ya waitin have good butcher's at this:

    I think actually that is a pretty common feeling. Elite has this strong "Blaze your own trail" ethos. You are welcome to go and be part of things but really - its up to you. You can be sufficiently Empire to have prismatics but also Fed enough to put them on your Corvette. And mission types are the same whoever you barrack for. So it's easy to view the powers as undifferentiated and opt to start afresh. Groups like the Mercs of Mikuun and The Winged Hussars really carved out a place for themselves. I imagine that's what a lot of Player Groups think they are going to do. Opt out of the big politics and be their own thing. It's not hard to be moderately successful. And as the groups mature they often find they have a position regarding the big powers. But there's so much lore and background to wrap your head around.

    Based on past experience, is it going to be mind blowing? Sadly I think not.

    Speaking of statues, you know that since a chicken egg is unfertilized, technically you are eating the chicken's period, not a fetus?

    Apparently an arrest was made today in the Statue Assault Case. Durham County Police state more will follow, and felony charges will be pursued.

    Yeah, nah - one is. I live in Darwin IRL and I spent a couple of months out at Darwin Research Laboratory in the California Nebula flipping the system to Alliance and making my first Billion. Lotta parallels, and half the stuff in Darwin is named after Charlie IRL. There's Charles Darwin University, and Charles Darwin National Park and so on. They are both really remote, research hubs and kinda hot, kinda crazy and full of tourists and military. That's grouse.

    There's an inflection point developing in American Society right now. Is it acceptable for White Supremacists to march down the street, club and murder citizens and impose their views on communities that have already passed laws about their own monuments? The POTUS seems to think so. www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/08/15/david_duke_praises_trump_s_tuesday_press_conference.html

    Visible plate noted. I had not seen it from this angle before. However murder implies a selected victim. He's running into a crowd. A crowd. That's pretty nonselective... Anyhow, it's up to the people doing the investigation to work out what the actual offenses are. How this is different to say an ISIS attack in Paris eludes me.

    You are correct. There's no justification for people to go around wrecking monuments. I do NOT support that. If people in a town somewhere put up a statue, well that's up to them there. If they decide to take it down or change it, same deal. It's not up to me. It's up to them. If a statue has artistic merit, then we should try to preserve it. Same goes for historical merit. There must be a park or a museum or some other place that can accept the work if a locale decides to change stuff. Nobody has to die over ths stuff. Nobody has to fight over it. Statues and other historical art make life better, not worse.

    "Yes, in a fit of sudden passion, he tinted his windows, and removed both licence plates before identifying some non-combatants and ramming into 20 of them. It could have happened to anyone. He's not to blame. It's those SJW's who provoked that poor innocent white boy to defend his helpless heavily armed Neo-Nzi friends. We have to consider ALL the sides here."

    That is why you will see people like JohnMice only provide 'retrospective analyses'. Spoiler: everything is fine and as expected. In hindsight.

    Blocking undemocratic or anti-democratic ideas is in itself undemocratic. If the people want to ban guns in 2017 there should be a procedure to make it happen somehow, and they shouldnt be forced to have the old rules just because people thought it was best centuries ago. Likewise, if the people in the future for whatever reason want what we currently consider to be anti-democratic there should equally be a procedure to make it happen. Besides, banning of symbols and such is pointless. They just make a slightly different logo and carry on. The counter to 'wrong' ideologies is education and information. Not banning ideas. Its been a 'problem' (pending perspective) for a loooong time. Now its just trendy enough for coverage.

    Cool, more words without actually answering honestly. So copy&paste it is: just tell us when you expect the game to reach the quality promised for 2014. That means actual gameplay loops for a variety of professions, multiple systems to travel too, basic persistence as gamers have known since the early 80s, standard 60FPS in a fairly stable state. Come on, I challenge you: when do you expect we are gonna get this super limited version? So dont answer again with a few pages of irrelevant nonsense, just your best guess at a date please. Keep in mind you keep claiming they are 'mid-way'. As they have been going for over six years that means any guess before 2023 means you dont really belief they are 'mid development'. So, your best guess at a date please. :)

    I can compare anything with everything. A comparison doesnt mean they are being presented as equal. The point he clearly made was that one symbol may be perfectly fine to you, doesnt mean its fine to others. And what is fine to others may not be fine to you. So a nice solution is to not break each other's stuff, because if we all break stuff we dont like noone has nothing. I am really not into religion. I am sure many religious people are firmly against what I believe. So over he we came to the agreement that if I dont burn their Bibles and break their statues of Maria they wont burn me at the stake. Both sides still belief they are right, and the others are wrong. Both sides agree not to kill each other, burn each other's stuff or run each other out of the country. Works much better than what we tried before. :D So as far as I am concerned you can wave whatever flag you want, as long as you adhere to the law. Which means not running over people in cars (*looks furiously at rightwing and muslim...

    I am not saying 'symbols are the same regardless of context'. I also did not say anything about Charlottesville, or your grandfather, or Stalingrad, so I have some difficulty parsing this response to be honest? I am saying you cannot have a free democracy if you ban free speech promoting specific ideologies. "You can freely discuss politics as long as your opinions are in the following list ." is simply not freedom. And you cannot have rule of law if everyone gets to destroy whatever personally offends them. I have difficulty understanding why this even needs to be discussed. There are procedures for removing statues, and these procedures have been used succesfully multiple times the past few months alone in the US with similar statues. You cant sidestep that and just remove them at leisure "just because my opinion is really the right one.".

    Does it even matter? This latest statement of his is basically him saying they probably will get enough hypothetical sales of an as-of-yet non-existenting product that most interested people already pre-ordered to fund the real project's non-existent schedule. If that is 'nothing to be concerned about' I am quite sure JohnMice also wouldnt be concerned when CR said they were broke but he might be able to sell his clothes. :rolleyes:

    You confront free speech you disagree with by using your right to free speech and presenting a counter-point. You dont just destroy whatever you dont like. Breaking other people's stuff isn't 'challenging free speech', its just breaking other people's stuff. And yes, Vindy's comparison of the swastika with the rainbow flag was spot on. The point he is making is obviously not that 'being gay equals being a ' or some such, but that every symbol will have a whole bunch of people vehemently despise it for all kinds of reasons. Claiming your reasons are better than other people's reasons doesnt really make for a good argument for allowing yourself to break the law. Once you start allowing that to happen things get out of control real fast.

    I am not a big fan of removing 'offensive' sculptures from the past. It just means you are slowly becoming a nation erasing its own past whenever it doesnt suit the present. Not the right way IMHO.
