hellahalla GET OFF MY LAWN
I think you’re giving them way too much credit, both the UEG and the Innies. As a conflict theorist, my motto is: “It’ll all end in tears” because it undoubtedly will. REVOLUTIOOOON
Regardless if companies could do that, they still probably wouldn’t, just because of costs. The kind of planets the Innies could control and use wouldn’t be ideal ones, probably with few natural resources aside from minerals/metals, and they’d also be wildly in the middle of nowhere. A company, if it wants to grow, would still have to ship goods, pay for construction, maintenance, electricity, etc. It isn’t a smart business plan lmao I can see the innies SURVIVING on their own but I don’t see them living happily. re: jefferson state economics
This is all certainly true! Personally I would not want to be anywhere near the outer colonies or the seceded colonies. “Small groups of poorly armed humans living in glorified villages as they struggle to survive on planets that certainly aint no Earth” sounds like target practice to me. And while wartime markets always boom for those in possession of the right weaponry - and if Kilo-5 taught us anything, Innies certainly are - there is the inevitable decline. But, I must digress, seeing as the galaxy just got a lot more crowded, and many species are still bitter; wartime may last decades, especially in the outer reaches of habitable zones. Big-name companies could move to Innie-controlled planets, but I suspect UEG may make it hard for them. Additionally the cost of transporting goods back into the inner colonies may greatly outweigh the benefits of cheap labor. There is also the fact that introducing big industries into a small society creates a massive imbalance between classes, and according to chaos theory, it’s only a matter of time before the scales tip again.
generally, while the innies could start off with a simple society and build up on their own, i suspect living conditions will be just as bad as they were under UEG control. damned if you do, damned if you don’t, yknow
ohhhh ok I get it lmfao sorry anon, it’s 5 am. in some way i do agree, because the outer colonies get less resources than the inner systems. they generally live in poorer conditions, farm for themselves, and are so far from the influence of ueg that it’s understandable why they’d want to cease being under their control. it reminds me of the “six californias” debate however; namely the concept of the “jefferson state”. people in that area of influence are farmers, loggers, industrial type workers who don’t get paid much and typically live in less than desirable conditions. they’re so far from the attention of the government that it seems unfair for them to have to follow those laws when they’re basically ignored. it’s debatable if the same rules apply on a interplanetary scale, but the fact of the matter is, without a big government like the ueg, those innie colonies would fall into squalor. how would they pave their roads? construct equipment for generating electricity? how would taxes be controlled, how would they be acceptable, with such relatively small populations, when so much needs to be done in order to create a functioning society? third parties could charge however much money they pleased because the ueg would have no control over it. due to a monopoly over the market, third parties could charge whatever they wanted when it came to innie customers, because it’s a necessary good; a city can’t live without water, means of growing crops, or building homes, and third parties could take advantage of that. plus, most planets visited by humans are only borderline habitable. how can you expect to maintain a stable community when you depend entirely on shipped-in goods? when the world you cut yourself away from is the only lifeline to survival?
in the end, if the innies want out, let em out, but they’ll get fucked over in the long run imho
ahhh omh i’ve been grinning over this message since you sent it. thank you so much!! i really appreciate it!!!!
i cant tell if youre referencing the insurrectionist faction in the halo series or belly buttons
