One of the things I love about this setting is how "for" it is on freedom of expression. Different factions may agree on the specifics, censoring "illicit" materials, IP rights, open source, etc., but overall, almost everyone agrees that people have the right to their opinions. However, there is one issue that doesn't seem to fall under such; and that is the freedom to practice organized religion. Yes the core rulebooks do state that there ARE religious communities in the system, both ones that survived the Fall and even new ones having emerged since, but they are either practiced and used as forms of control by insidious governments or seen as eccentricities among people. (All things considered, even the word "eccentric" should be loooooong extinct in the outer system.) It seems a little like how Andrew Ryan chose to ban Bibles from Rapture, after promising his people need not "fear the censor." It's like, "believe and say whatever you want! Wait, you didn't tell me you were religious, better keep that to yourself." My question is, why do we not see a Rabbi in Extropia? Or maybe a Native American shaman living in the outback of Mars? Why, in a future of ideologies and cosmic philosophical wonderings, is religious faith not seen as just another expression of the trans-human mind?
