This looks to be the final post of the Primer proper; two other posts are in the works to round things off.
Punth! Aristocratic republic of former astronauts. Long roads dividing a howling desert. Scribe schools engaged in mass call-and-repeat lessons in the baking sun. Gendarme patrols, regular as clockwork. Polychrome pillars and glazed bricks. Long-necked herbivores pulling carts; six-legged steeds for the Sky Princes.
The Primer thus far has talked about professions, conditions and tactics: now we talk about Goals. Some of this will doubtless repeat earlier parts of the Primer, but it this Chapter still seems necessary.
Security By the might of the Sky Princes are these lands secured.
Safety Shelter, plenty and benevolence: these sustain a sheltering, plenteous, benevolent populace.
Find a Community The longing for a home is the longing for Correct Thought and those who speak it.
Find a work-team To be idle is to decay.
Prestige To be known as a vessel of Correct Thought allows transmission of Correct Thought.
Accomplishment The application of might and wit is properly praised.
Perpetuate Culture To the offspring of the Codes, let there be taught the Codes.
Expand Culture Where Correct Thought is not, there is only fruitless toil. This is no proper state for the populace.
Expand Territory Correct Thought has no borders.
Find a new home Neither men nor land should be idle, but idle men and idle land may be set together and transformed.
Reform By the refiner's fire, both gold and the populace may be remade.
Re-invigrate/Repair Water refreshes the spirit; water with earth makes mud; from mud are shaped bricks; bricks restore the house.
Destroy Might joined with righteousness surpassed all other things.
Defeat Cast folly into the dust.
To Die Well To die for the populace can be as worthy as to live.
Punish Malice is thwarted in the Servants of the People.
Harmony, Coordination From the scribe, instruction. From the labourer, action. For the populace, joy.
Prosperity Where bellies are empty, let them be filled. Where granaries are empty, let them be filled. Where granaries are ruined, restore them.
Strength Might is won be devotion and wisdom. These come from the Codes.
Good of the Qryth The might of the Sky Princes is wondrous and perfusive!
Good of Punth The lands and teachers of correct thought must be sustained.
Justice Who must rise first? The mighty. Who shall be raised up? The just.
Learning Correct thought is the pathway to all abilities that may be considered natural.
