It was also a very devastating war, and one of their mistakes
was that their were those who were entrusted to keep the past, sort of
a more advanced version of storytellers, who put all their data in one
basket, as it were...very possessive and jurisdictional. When they and
that center of data were taken out, a lot was lost. One drawback of a
very rigid and structued society.
