Uh huh. If you supposedly knew that resources can be scarce in a post-scarcity society, then what was all that gibberish about the scarcity of TIME? And if you "just want to know why the GMS licenses are restricted," wouldn't it be more rational to ask the authors to go into more detail about that, instead of writing a lot of pseudointellectual stuff about alleged contradictions?
I personally don't see any need for more detail there. I would need a license to drive a heavy truck. It doesn't blow my mind that I might need one to drive a spider mech with a particle cannon. In fact, I am glad that they did not go into much detail, because I've been coming up with my own ideas about how Union keeps people from printing things they aren't allowed to have, how successful that effort is, and what implications it has for Union society. You could do that too. With a little creativity on your part, I'm sure you could be satisfied.
"My point is the author's stated that they want to depict a world that has escaped oppressive capitalism and empire"
I don't remember them saying that anywhere. I think you are misremembering something.
"Read my post, not my profile name."
Is this a complaint about something that I wrote, or is this just what you type when you are sad?
