I believe that you will find that that pilot is not one of my minions.

This why we will forever talk past each other.

You are comfortable with what you are, and I am comfortable seeing you in the light of truth which glamour hides for those less accustomed to the raw and ugly products of empire.


Oh, I don't think we're talking past one another at all, Binky. But you're right. I am pretty comfortable actually being a competent communicator who understands how to get a message across. Don't worry though, Aria's right: some day, you'll grow out of the adolescent modes of communication. If you learn basic grammar along the way, you might even prove slightly useful at getting people to throw off the shackles of conformity and mindless obedience to those in power.

Not holdin' my breath, though.

Oh, you're the CEO of Stimulus now ?

What happened to Bacchanalian ? I remember he accidentally impersonated the Mittani, with hilarious consequences.

Oh, so the champion of freedom and individual agency has minions!

Wow, that's a dismissive freakin' way to refer to the people supporting your cause. Kinda makes them sound like you don't really encourage them to be free or have individual agency.

Almost like you're just another tin-pot warlord lashing out at someone for the crime of being more powerful than you are.

That might be true, if my entire existence was purely for that one attack, and vanished immediately after. We do not maintain pilots licenses for just that one attack. We did not learn to pilot freighters just for that one attack. This attack was merely a part of our story, and when calculating the cost you can only look at things that were used up by it, not things that existed before it, will exist after it, and remained unaffected by doing it.


Tsk, and now you're completely failing to understand how racketeering works. It doesn't matter if your entire existence was about that one attack, what matters is that everyone who financially contributed to you being in a position to conduct the attack is also culpable.

But keep on trying! Maybe your minions can help you find better excuses.

Edit: Oh, and hey, remember that 'Lady Morwen wasn't involved'?

Combine that with 'I am Rote Kapelle' and you've pretty much said 'If she stays in the Alliance, she supports my actions'. So GOOD JOB making it harder for her friends to trust her, Mr. CEO, you certainly do look after your 'minions' well.

Ben it's rather amazing how triggered the dogs become when words and concepts from power structures come into play.

I believe the word Pavlovian applies.

You know that there's nothing left to say when the word "triggered" starts flying around. You came to Amarr loyalists and started rubbing your feces all over the place, did you expect a warm welcome?

Oh, lookit that, the 'maximum syntactical complexity' affection drops away! Why, it's almost like you've been full of shite the whole time, and finally realize you're not baffling anyone with your bullcrap.

Are you sure you didn't mean to say 'Chairman Booley, amazement fills my awareness when I observe how intense the visceral reaction from the mendacious lackeys of authority becomes when verbiage and abstract constructions from hierarchical social dynamics are proffered into the discussion'?

I call them minions because it amuses them, not because they do my every whim.

They choose to follow me not out of fear, but out of love. Fear of god is how the false empress keeps her subjects in line. Pilots of Rote fear nothing.

Ah, the old 'you're resorting to an ad hominem' dodge. Let's review (again):

I'm attacking your sudden abandonment of the affectation you insisted was soooo 'you'. And then I'm calling you a fraud for having the affectation. That's not 'raw ad hominem', that's demonstrating someone's dishonesty, and then simply saying they're dishonest. I'm also mocking you. But it's ok that you missed it, you seem to have missed the fact that I've been doing nothing but mocking you this whole time, Binky.

Yup. I'm sure they're totally amused at 'hey, the boss is making us out to be minions to people who have no reason to not believe him and will laugh at him and us for it'. Nothing like the guy in charge demonstrating an incredible lack of awareness to get the people whose reputation he's tarnishing to yuck it on up.

I'm sure they do love you. I'm sure they love looking ineffective and ridiculous like they did last night, too. Heck, they probably even love getting pissed on in public like you're doing now. Such an effective leader.

You can repair a 15-something kilometers long ship in a couple of seconds? Do tell.
