Well, on the plus side, it appears that Dizzee is confident in impro surgery’s ability to enhance his performance. On the downside, he seems a little more… insistent than he used to be.
All the best,
Stims -and- a gun to the doctor’s? Dizzee’s taking this hard. And seriously.
In camp near to action, carrying a firearm at all time makes some sense. Discipline also seems a bit touch and go in the Free Markets, where money talks.
Somebody’s got a stim addiction going on…
Dizzee’s in a pretty rough place mentally right now. He has no control over his life. He can’t quit, he’s under contract. He can’t run, they will track him down. He can’t buy his way out, he owes too much. He can’t fight his own company, they have an army of thugs and lawyers for that. For all we know they might have recourse against his family too.
About the only thing he does have control of is what goes into his body and a strong desire not to be just another spent asset on his company’s balance sheet. He is wound up so tight he’s likely to burst or burn out before finding his way through this mess.
Makes me wonder how “hostile take-over” works in the Free Markets. There might be recourse for the sufficiently armed.
There might but it seems like their society holds together just a little too well for that to be common. The Free Market doesn’t seem to operate in a way where you can just walk in and steal something by virtue of firepower. Their society values law (and the manipulation of it) and people keeping their word. Not the spirit of their words, sometimes not even the literal words, but rather the legal obligations the words put you on the hook for.
So using armed guards to walk into a factory and declare it yours, not acceptable and the rest of the Free Market will probably not do business with the new owners thus dooming the venture. Using those same armed guards to stop a shipment of goods that forces the factory owner to have to sell the factory to you at a low price, acceptable. The factory owner should have hired his own guards to make sure the shipment made it to its destination and its their own fault.
Hmm. is that just his flak jacket on his leg???
