Those with few freedoms are usually those who care about politics.

It's rather odd, to be honest. I don't understand. You'd think those with few freedoms would care the least, since they have no choice in the matter anyways, but apparently Max Barry thought differently when he programmed stuff.

Hey now, who said anything about few freedoms? I know I'm generally seen as an evil militarist empire, but there's a fair bit of freedom in the HSE. So that actually works against that argument. The only real lack of freedoms is in politics, where upper-level politics is still a dictatorship, as opposed to lower-level, more local politics which are democratic.

:D

So I'm not the only one who is only dictatorial at the highest levels?

Guess not. Planetary governor is as high as you get through democracy. Past that, you're appointed, or promoted.

It's not strange at all, Senkaku. The more control government has over the lives of its citizens, the less freedom they have. And I don't know about you, but if someone was in charge of running my life, I'd be interested in how they're doing it; regardless of whether or not I can do anything about it. Further, people take an interest in things they can't have, whilst things they do have are taken for granted. Hence the low voter turnouts in all Western democracies.

We run things as a meriticracy... Ironically, the only real civil laws can be neatly explained in one sentance. Dont touch that, don't put that in your mouth, whatever you like to do, do it well.

The rules regarding methods of acquisition of power (aka elections, votes, or other means of climbing the proverbial leadership ladder) Are rather fixed, and no one person or body is capable of altering them. This makes it impossible to 'buy' or otherwise leverage positions of power. They don't so much have written hard set laws, so much as social customs...

One of our main laws is that, if it's not easy to understand, it's not law. Legal jargon doesn't exist in the Kereth system.

Finally slowly but steady DCR becomes a nice place to be, I like that.
