Not talking about Battletech, just talking about how it usually seems to go. Also, stuff like the people behind Starship Troopers IP wishing the IP would be used for something that promotes pacifism and peace and didn't have any kind of combat... right. We'd use our own money to make a game called Starship Troopers where you try to run an orbital ganja farm.




I've seen some lefty asshats refer to Starship Troopers as a Fascist-run future.

They completely miss the point of the story being about two different very different interstellar empires, who have no common understanding, being in a constant state of war with the loser likely to be completely exterminated.

It's about what the humans have to do in order to simply survive in that situation against an alien enemy bent on their total destruction. Getting tough when faced with genocide.


But some would have you think that everything would have been just fine had humanity simply turned the other cheek/empathized more with the "visitors" from outer space....

It is the primary mission of government and citizens to welcome these guests, who are in danger.

The primary task of police and security forces will be to protect them from racist native citizens. We are especially worried about the people who have lost relatives to individual attacks by extreme-Arachnids, that these people unjustly would blame all Arachnids for the actions of individual Arachnids with mental disorders and engage in homegrown terrorism. This homegrown terrorism is the greatest security threat we've ever faced.
