Not that they were evil; they just insisted that we trade with them. By their rules, rules backed up by irresistible weapons. In terms of those rules, they would even play fair—but in the long run, if they didn't own something, it would be because they didn't want it.

Not the usual military SF. Real seeming personal conflict with sound background. Some of that background sounds familiar. Who or what did you vote for?

The author's political core slams the reader in the face. His lack of class or intelligent counter positioning is out done only by the exposure of his hate and desire for power and influence. This is, in no small part, the reason his imagination is so hit and miss.
