Some PP 20 spoiler (Click to show)
You could argue that the hyperoats thing is one such thing but if you look back at ep. 2 when Akane was taking a shower, the AI jellyfish asked her what to eat for breakfast and she asked for Chinese-flavoured breakfast. Then in the next scene :3 the show showed how the Chinese-flavoured breakfast looks like processed space food of the future. It's been alluded/foreshadowed that the food they used is processed, and then they explained that it's HYPAHOATZU.
Now on to the juicier part (Click to show)
I agree. The Japanese society doesn't need it to protect itself from within; that's what Sibyl is for; but to protect themselves from without; i.e. from the other foreign nations. The drones are used as border controls. In the episode with the riots, Division 1 said that it needed to reprogram the border drones to control the riots.
I think I understand what you hate about it actually: Makishima himself. I mean like you said, if Makishima didn't come you wouldn't know all this things about Sibyl and would've just be as happy as most people in PP-Japan. I think in the next 2 episodes Gen will tell the story of why Makishima is doing all this, but for now it looks like the typical anarchist. He said so himself actually why he's dong all this: in this world of sugar-coated tyranny, he want to see what will people on the edge do when they are given a real choice to make. He does it for that hikikomori dude that plays around in anarchists' forums things. He gave that female student artist the freedom to express herself more fully. The biggest one, I think, was he gave Akane real power to judge someone by giving her a shotgun to stop him from killing Yuki. He is, for all intents and purposes, Chaos; just want to see the world burn. He said that too when Sibyl offered him to join them.

Now on to Sibyl's flaws. I would like to think that I know how Gen thinks with this. Since I am assuming that Makishima, for now, it just Chaos, and as you said that Sibyl is Order; a perfect one to all eyes; he just want to see how the populace will react. And in all that effort, we know that Sibyl is as flawed as humans are, since they are essentially still human. In a sense, this is like "bring down the Big Brother" thing, only the populace is actually happy for once, and the rebel is just some psychopath.

I feel like the show, looking relatively in its universe/timeline, is showing how Sibyl usually deals with psychopaths that it can't judge through cymatic scan, and failing. Usually all those psychopaths agree on Sibyl's offer, but this one time it's someone like Makishima, a, so far and dare I say, chaotic neutral. He is the MacGuffin to show how flawed is Sibyl is.

That's what I think at least. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

For the record, I'm not conveniently ignoring your long post on the world of Psycho-Pass; I agree with it too.

So much win!

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Yep yep. I find Makishima to be very interesting. Most anime will just give the antagonist a silly anti normal logic that explains and satisfies the viewer in why he does it. For Makishima, he doesn't have the silly anti normal logic. He has a human one. It's because he has his own views and would like to test the world.

 

Sibyl was built on people who wanted to test the edge of humanity. What would people do when human morality was displayed publically. That the peace can be corrupted. What would people do, in times of extreme pressure.

 

Makishima encompases Sibyl system and their brain pattern of trial. The difference is that he doesn't want to join the collective body because he wants a different type of system. Similar but different.

 

So yeah, so much win. Makishima is a layer deeper than what you typically find. He doesnt' have that silly anti normal logic(for example, I will blow up the world because control is wrong blah blah) but his logic as of right now is one of testing the edge of humanity through his own ideologies.

 

The world of PP is interesting. It has to be, its an anime.

 

But that is the reason why I in a way still support Sibyl Systems

Finished Portal 2. Lots of fun.

Bleh. Titan Quest is no fun without someone else to play with. Dishonored is too much effort since sneaking gets tiresome after a while and I'm a perfectionist. Siggggggggggh.

I spent 10 hours to finish the game barely killing anyone. I like the sneaking around as well

I thought Portal was more memorable than Portal 2, but Portal 2 was pretty fun. The speed up/jump/portal slimes added some pretty tricky puzzles in some areas.

So, update on the speaker situation.  My friend told me he has a pair of KRK RP6 G2s with broken tweeters (blew out) that he's willing to sell me for $150.  I already checked online, and tweeters are at ~$30.  Unfortunately, I have no soldering experience, but I heard that the wires are plugged in on the tweeter side, so I'm wondering if this holds true.  Also, would it be worth it if I decided to resell online to make net profit?  Any advice will be useful.

 

EDIT: Make that $14 on FullCompass.

Unless the Japanese writing was significant, I didn't find anything too weird about it. It's a really cool song, if anything. :p

Nope, just some really old animation. I like the occasional non sequitur in a forum.
