“The Norrans speak so highly of Freedom for a people so thoroughly in the thrall of those who claim to act in the name of their god. It is a known fact that none of the common folk have ever heard that god speak to them, and they are instructed to mistrust any signs of his miracles if these signs are not beforehand inspected and approved by his most trusted clergymen (a title these men bestow upon themselves). Their god could well be long dead and buried - they would never catch wise! Were it not an offense to my own faith on every possible level of analysis, even I would be inclined to call this well-oiled, self-sufficient machine of subjugation, this “perpetomovile” (to use a term I have recently learned from a gentleman of Ombrian persuasion) downright fascinating!”
