Army's Heaven


A paradise for soldiers that Gene attempted to establish in 1970 on the San Hieronymo Peninsula. A nation of mercenaries consisting only of those of superior talent. It was intended to act as an intangible, shadowy organization hidden deep underground that would intervene in all disputes throughout the world. The aim was to break free from the rule of the Philosophers, which had lost much political strength. At the root was Gene's idea that superior military force should be used to achieve superior will, instead of being at the mercy of national interests or the tactics of worthless governments. Gene asserted that "The individual wills of individual soldiers are meaningless. Those who have no calling must be given one by those who do. They must follow the teachings of those with a greater will."
