The amusing thing about reading Infinite Worlds is finding all the ways it steers around simply saying that Homeline are a bunch of self-indulgent parasites, and the places where it just gives up and admits the fact.

One amusing idea; imagine Homeline discovered a world much like Centrum, but without parachronics, before they met Centrum. Letís face it, every social and political scientist on Homeline would go nuts trying to work out how someone preserved a global technocratic bureaucracy without slumping into gross inefficiency or corruption, and getting quite lost in admiration for the architects of that system.
