Or, per Robert Heinlein channeling James Branch Cabell, “In the kingdom of the blind the one-eyed man is in for one hell of a rough ride.” Muzhik February 21, 2019 at 9:37 pm 3 years ago Now Red-9 needs to give Devyat two different colored headscarfs, and when she wears one Red-9 can look at her and say, “Nu?

When Red-9 and her people gave their lives for slavery they were ruthlessly and thoughtlessly used for. The new generation has no idea what the previous generation has experienced.
