    I have always wondered how things spiraled out of surly control when she was empress. She seemed to always be reacting to issues and nothing seemed to be working her way. Until I read deadhouse landing and found out that she takes umbrage at being offered an advice that may be contrary or feeling bad if anyone seemed to be above her. Kellenvad never had the issue,his only problem was a tendency to megalomania. Dassem, choss,dujek never bordered in their own case. Dancer outgrew his. Although with her many strengths, she remained weak in that regard if I look back



    Some quotes would help. I didnt get this feeling or maybe missed it.

    I think she thought Kellanved was border-line crazy and unreliable which is not wrong
    Kellanved himself seemed to be more interested in the warrens than governing the empire.
    Surly on the other hand considered it to be her duty to govern and do it well.

    Surly is basically a tragedy of power. You might have a lot of power and intend to do good, but unfortunately the mistakes (that often looked like the better choices in the short term) add up.
    Beyond that, I don't think she was comfortable socially and suffered because of that.

    I am just curious. I never really thought about it before, but last night I got curious and did some research.

    In my case all my memories are in third person. A memory of me at the movies with my three friends discussing the movie, will be a picture of me standing in a circle with those friends. I remember who was there, I remember who said what and where everyone stood but its not a true memory obviously because I cant have been watching myself. All my memories are like this. Never really thought anything about it. Apparently its not uncommon but many people do have memories from the first person perspective, they remember what they saw through their eyes.

    Maybe a glitch in the Matrix :-)

    Rutger Hauer met his maker. I wonder what happened.
  4. In Topic: Antifa and the Alt movements

    Somewhere the overlords must be laughing their asses off.

    These are the Circuses for modern times, maybe we should build a Colosseum and stage it there, maybe even offer free Big Gulps for all the spectators.

    The real problem in the USA are the overlords (who have access to huge amounts of capital and make millions of dollars in profits in a day and bailouts when they fail) wheres we poor schmucks need 30 year loans for a college degree and house.

    Meanwhile let's pick some misguided poor people or maybe somebody who is there to support free speech and beat the shit out of them and feel great about having "solved that problem".

    What has been deeply disappointing to me is how a group of people who read complex literature, and have gone through all the philosophical ramblings of Steven Erikson which have a central theme of compassion and tolerance at the core, are willing to tolerate violence and even encourage it, and inexcusably are stupid enough to be duped by the manipulations and propaganda of the sociopath narcissists that rule the world.

    Perhaps this is now how you beat unacceptable ideas out of the head of an old nazi
