    The best way to get info on Bilan is to ask the ICC. They've published the most from the group, and regard themselves as its political heirs. Go to http://en.internationalism.org/ and put 'bilan' into the search box in the top right - that should give you a wealth of material by, and about, Bilan.

    I got a distinctly more...post-apocalyptic view of what constituted as a great society to Armstrong. And it's kind of easy to support "only the fittest shall survive" when you yourself are capable of punching aircraft carrier sized mecha apart in one solid blow and casually ignore blades that cut like lightsabers. Reflective of how Social Darwinism is almost always supported by those who would be in a position to immediately climb to the top of the pyramid (or at least those who think they are), no?

    I also find Armstrong very interesting. His views are abhorrent, but he has a great deal of Charisma.

    Most of the game you're fighting standard Mercenaryism. A worthy cause to be sure given the PMC's profiteering of the worst of mankind's activities. Or are even just looking to get paid for warring.

    But Armstrong, he at first is just your standard fat cat CEO and Corrupt politician, but when you literally and metaphorically peel away the layer of the Metal Gear Excelsus he reveals his true nature as a foaming at the mouth social darwinist who would make even Ayn Rand blush.

    I think that, though Kojima may not have intended this, this can be seen as showing the brutal, nasty core of social darwinism at the heart of capitalism. Taking the mantra of "the best man dies with the most stuff in his estate, all else is secondary" to it's logical conclusion of "only the best man deserves to live, let the world burn."

    The Fedora was hijacked by a certain stereotype, a male, white, and *incredibly* smug athiest with odious anti-feminist viewpoints.

    Despite it's parodic intentions, this is surprisingly close to the truth.

    Needless to say they're a disgrace to the secularist community as a whole.

    I'm largely apatheistic. Religion isn't something that particularly concerns me and unless you're using your beliefs to cause harm I largely don't care what your beliefs are regarding the supernatural. If I had to commit to a side I'd probably go with non-militant atheist.

    I'd never be caught dead with a Fedora though.

    I suppose the correct term would be boy of science, but yes!

    Just a word of advice: threat this process as one of discovering what your ideas actually are, rather than just looking for a label to slap onto an existing state of ideas. Dipping your toe into the large pond of revolutionary politics should be a challenging and often unsettling process in which you should be prepared to grow, at least if you hope to get anything from it. Be patient, think critically, ask questions, and study hard.

    "The economic anarchy of capitalist society as it exists today is, in my opinion, the real source of the evil. We see before us a huge community of producers the members of which are unceasingly striving to deprive each other of the fruits of their collective labour...I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals." -Albert Einstein.

    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure." -Thomas Jefferson.
