Is Turn A Gundam the closest mecha has to offer as an art? The avant garde styling of both the characters and Syd Mead's Mobile Suits seems to be something that the mechanical designers and character designers of today seem to avoid entirely.
I wouldn't be surprised if this is just a case of it being something of a pinnacle in both Japanese art and Japanese story telling. The themes of post-humanism as well as strength through vanity seem so common and reoccurrent that I can't help but see it as a, not only a classic piece of mecha history, but as a piece of art to the world.
Why is it that NOTHING has come close to matching the quality of Turn A's art and story telling? Is the mediocrity of today's Japanese artist because of their blatant lack of skill, or is Tomino just among the greatest storytellers of the world?
What are you thoughts on a current generation of gateway anime?
7-8 years ago it would be something like Toradora, Geass, Haruhi, Death Note, Rozen Maiden, K-on, DtB, etc., but now it seems the people who are getting into anime start with something like KLK, Anohana, Sakurasou, Shigatsu, SnK, etc.

what makes his preferred system more justified
what makes his preferred system less arbitrary
what makes his preferred system less utilitarian
His preferred system will lead to him simply becoming domesticated by the system he openly opposes by becoming another cog in the machine. Even when he thinks he can reach his goals, it will be of no consequence to the greater empire if he took Area 11 because they would just milk his ass for sakuradite.
Tl;dr: without lelouch he would just get swallowed and used by the system he hates
