Marcintosh: meh-

disgusted with war and death machines and those that make money from them.
Sort of surprised I seem alone in this.
It's just tiresome chest thumping to me.


Your entire civilization was founded on competition.  Every technology, every technique, every person has inherited a legacy of death.  Think of it as Original Sin in a more secular context.  You exist because hominid A killed hominid B over resource C, repeated countless times throughout history.

Pretending you are somehow above the rest of the plebes due to your distaste for war, a concept you likely don't fully understand, is a humorously vain affectaction.

If you piled all the drawings, specifications, testing, research and whatever other documents required for the ship on the deck, it would sink.

I was hoping for something more like a time lapse of the entire construction.
