thats what i assumed, i just thought OSC would have worded the sentence a little differently if that was his intention. What about this... Considering that we know how all of the Formics are extentions of the hive queen and act as they are told by her, does that mean that none of the Formics are con...

that may be true, but you shouldnt call it a stupid plot. especially after you yourself called it an important sequence in the story of Ender Wiggin. I agree that more time should have been spent on the chapters concerning Arkanian Delphiki and Ender's time spent on Ganges. However, you have to take...

EG - Shadow series contradiction

After finishing Ender in Exile today i decided to glance back through chapters 14 and 15 of Ender's Game and noticed this little contradiction in the conversation between Mazer and Ender just before the battle over the Formic home world: "Does the Little Doctor work against a planet?" Mazer's face w...

Im not sure when Card said this in the books, or even if he actually said it, but i thought the IF used the ansible they created to track the Formics train of thought back to a "home" world. I could be wrong, so somebody please correct me if possible. As for the Formics' colonization, from a militar...

Actions ignorant of information are definitely more excusable than the actions of those with information. Knowing all the consequences and all the information makes you responsible. However, if you knew nothing and didnt know what you were doing or even why you were doing it how can you be reponsibl...

The way current internet forums are run, it probably wont happen too soon. I would imagine a large, very controlled forum. All the politicians would use their names and not an alias. Possibly a 3-dimention interface or video chatting. Of course any registered voter could watch, but not interact unle...

Im not sure if im 100% right on this, so correct me. Actual politicians do not use internet forums because they interact in-person with other decision makers in the White House, Capital building or Mayors office. They have no need to discuss things over the internet. In EG the world government is mo...

Tcashon is right, anybody can make a religion legitiment as long as it is something people can believe in. Look at human history... we used to worship Cats, land, people, celestial bodies, one God, multiple Gods and no Gods. It's all in how much a group of people believe. Some nutjob convinced peopl...

The religion was not started in the murder of a race. It was started in the understanding of a race. The Hive Queen was written so that the human race could understand the Formics because Ender found that we misinterpreted their intentions. We destroyed them without knowing exactly why they were fig...
