      Or at least they were educated until the Gaians ripped their minds out, Yang's 're-education' programs, Sparta's punishment spheres, Morganís nerve stapling, Lal's mind-numbing dogma, Zakís creative research hospitals, and Miriam's complete denial of reality in favor of 3000-year-old horror stories.

        ...any primitive tribesman of old Earth could hollow out a tree and make a canoe, but your faction canít build sea-going units until it acquires Doctrine: Flexibility. This isnít because water works differently on Planet, itís because it takes a great deal of work, planning and inspiration to set up a self-sustaining shipbuilding industry of the sort required
        to produce high-tech, ocean-going vessels on command.
