Laxian Key (page 5)

Squaring the Circle...

The sampling process then re-engages and, assuming the violence continues unabated, a further parcel of land is thereby delineated and assigned to whoever. The area this covers would then be some 2 sq. km. Subsequent infractions might trigger another penalty; 4 sq. km. After that, it's 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 sq. km. . . . . . . . . A natural progression; it soon ramps up to some very serious real estate indeed.

"very serious real estate "

Flaw!

Real estate is not 'territory'. Territory must be legally annexed to an already existing state.

I stand corrected, Talknic. But the term 'real estate' is only a literary device here; any interpretation as to its legal meaning is best left to a later date.

Those might be major bones of contention, Jordan. But if the process as a whole can bring an end to all such conflicts, I see very few objections being raised.

New actions are most definitely required here, Jenoye, certainly if 2019 is not to play out much as has 2018 and all the years back until 1948 and way beyond.

The loss of the Laxian Key created a most unwelcome situation for ALL the aliens, one they would have done ANYTHING to avoid. Might the same hold true for H S ?
