Focus, determination, and in the end, an apolitical approach to being exterminated. That's a problematic worldview.
The newer religious folk have the power and none of the message. Dig deeper, find the real deal. If you erase the histories of the conquered, you lose your roots.
Retreating into one's mind and memories via drugs, sex and enthusiastic attendance at festivals isn't progress. It just "feels" like it.
You are being erased and I understand that kind of pain. You can, should and must fight them harder. Blood remembers blood.
You almost have the point. Almost, not quite, though. Starting at the top and working your way down is a better approach to celestial assassinations.
Don't pretend you own the patent on suffering. Cope, don't mope, and fight like you're gonna die if you lose - because you will.
Your glory days are over; adapt, resist or perish. Good luck with that.
Making progress at the expense of cultural adaptation isn't working - build better communities, not power armor and lightsabers.
Exactly the kind of people who can change the world - once we stop fighting amongst ourselves.
It's not that I don't trust them - it's that they can't trust us. Build a better bridge, we cross it together; build a wall, one of us has to break it for us to talk. Your move.
