Yup. That was the right choice. Note that dirigibles were and are
still safer than heavier-than-air aircraft. Nor was the _Hindenburg_
fire that big of a disaster, really, it just got a lot of press.

Of course I understand your point, but the example is not apropos.

God Learning worked. That's what "right" means, in the sense I was
using. Note that the big disasters came after the GLs were corrupted,
and most of their former empire had no actual GLs in them any more.
(Six Leggers and False Dragon Ring had forgotten the secret.)
