The X-COM project did not deliver the universe's ultimate cup of coffee. You have failed to save the Earth.




When I read a Culture novel for the first time there was an offhand mention about how the Culture has no laws or prisons, even for murder. My initial reaction was to scoff and roll my eyes at it, but it got me to question a lot of basic assumptions I had about justice and morality which blew my mind.

Like a lot of the Culture's utopia, the idea works because of the Culture's post-scarcity egalitarian society run by god-like minds, but it made me realize we can and should do a lot better even without those things.
