The closest analogy I can think of for PCEG is something like the League of Nations (as an attempt at world government) that fails. So, just as the League of Nations led to the UN, PCEG becomes the UEN. Would that be a fair assumption? With the PCEG Investigations post-Occupation (2065-2080), would that be something similar to the Nuremberg trials and CROWCASS in tone? Or is it more like the McCarthy era show trials ('Reds under the bed'), rooting out quislings? After its dissolution in 2070, how pervasive are PCEG ideas? Does PCEG become an historical artifact or do PCEG ideals remain a cultural identifier, long after PCEG is 'gone'? As an example, Guangdong was an enthusiastic part of PCEG (but not the UEN) (core 209). What would that mean for Venus colony laws and customs? Would they be 'draconian and unjust' like PCEG (core 208), versus the probably more liberal, individualist, or non-existent laws in Redland, run by criminal cartels?
Are the later Orion War protests on Venus (core 175) because Venus opposes any war with aliens? Or is it because the war with aliens is primarily a UEN initiative (a possible cultural hangover from Guangdong pro-PCEG/UEN antipathy, passed down as a cultural bias)? That could also lead to a distinction between the tone of protests during the period. Mass popular uprising based on a firmly held conviction (war with aliens is bad), similar to Vietnam era protests versus state-sponsored protests based on political and economic ideals (UEN bad, trade good- therefore, war bad). Or some combination of both?
