I love the books, don’t get me wrong. My post wasn’t meant to be seen as critical. Just an observation that they’re more military sci-fi than space opera, and because they were good and well received, the majority of future EU books continued this trend.

Gotcha.

Warb is spot on.

He is. Sorry I posted anything 😦

Also, I’m sorry for some of the language I used. I had just seen some really nasty posts and was posting emotionally myself. I don’t swear irl but sometimes when you get emotional you say stuff you didn’t mean.

I thought the thread might actually be a discussion, but it’s mostly people getting mad and repeating meme talking points. And its also quite one-sided–it’s the side I agree with so that’s nice for me but not much of a discussion lol.

You’ve obviously not read the entire thread yet.

I’d like to know what expectations you have.

I desparately hoped there would be:
-no namecalling
-no projecting
-no generalizations
But I expected to find all of this, and I did. So I won’t be participating in this thread. Hate and vitriol gives me negative energy.

Most political discourse isn’t discourse at all, it’s kabuki theatre. For example, getting mad at what some California state legislature said is not relevant to politics at all (the science of passing policy). It’s just theatre.

There is often wisdom in not saying something with no real purpose. cough cough Actually, stay, you will fit in well 😉

I agree about hate and vitriol being draining. One purpose of the thread is simply to vent. Another is to bring issues to others’ attention. And in between there are some interesting discussions/“socializing”. I try to keep it light and frothy much as I can. I’m here at the OT for the Star Wars primarily. You can always post in the potato thread. That’s a good one. I adore potatoes in a way that some may find unnatural. The self-control I exercise by staying out of there is tremendous.

Haha!

And sorry if anyone took my post as being too angry at people, I was probably dumb to expect anything less for a politics thread.

All are welcome to ignore my idiotic and nonsensical posts. Though if you like posters who end up saying nothing at all, please read every word of each of my posts. Study my ways, and let me train you.

Your posts aren’t idiotic and nonsensical, they’re more like YA posts.

More like middle-grade. Or maybe the children’s section?

Yeah, as much as everyone loves the Thrawn Trilogy, those were military sci-fi, not space opera. You can thank Zahn for Star Wars books since then continuing this trend.

I’m reading the Thrawn trilogy right now.
