In short, the Synthworld’s success rests on two things: the strength of our conviction and the Empire’s commitment to paying for the project. Changing its budgetary status from mandatory to discretionary jeopardizes the second part of that equation, and I fear, will eventually eat away at our resolve to accomplish this remarkable feat of engineering. That’s why I’m asking you to reject this amendment. Stand with me in honoring Imperator Salehi’s original, fearless vision for the Synthworld.
