    A mere set of norms. The Patriots were those norms - a neural network reduced to its simplest form. That's what they really represented... Uniformity without individual will, without change. But then one day, those norms suddenly deviated from that pattern, and underwent a mutation. It was like the birth of a new life form... The System found a new way to propagate itself... War. The norms the Patriots had crafted for their unified state quickly became dependent on a single business... The war economy. Meanwhile, the political cause of creating a "cleaner, safer battlefield" provided a convenient catalyst. By then, the System was no longer being steered by Zero's will -- or anyone else's. It was then that the norms - manifested as AIs, the inheritors of Zero's will... began to reproduce and take on a life of their own. Zero's original intent was to carry on The Boss's will and establish a unified world state... An inside world. But his successors failed to carry on his will. Eventually, JD became the very age itself, propagating its will as it pleased. And this age chose to act through economics instead of nation-states. Powered by the industrial and digital revolutions that came before it... this age gave birth to a twisted economic revolution - a battlefield revolution. It created a new world without substance. .In this new world, there were no ideologies, no principles, no ideals...^ January 08, 2009 in News 18 There's no doubt Killzone 2 is looking to be a very big title for Sony with it's fun gameplay and beautiful graphics.

    I used to get dreams, about my comrades. .They would save me with strong arms and laughing voices.^ The blood would spurt so fast out of the severed arm socket that the victim would be unconscious before they hit the ground, and dead before they could get back up.

    When I woke up from these dreams, I had nothing. No joy, no sorrow, no hatred, no memory. When I woke up from the darkness, all I saw were the bodies of men I've killed, lying in front of me. I know. Everyone dies. Crime. Disease. Accidents. War. .No matter how good a man you are, no matter how good a soldier, there are no exceptions.^ And how could there be a “common good”!

    .Even if I don't kill them, they die.^ I’m even tempted to ask about the ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ books as they relate to ‘games’ again, but I don’t think it’s necessary.
