There was to be no retribution against the ordinary populace of the planet, as reprehensible as they may have been – though, it was decided that for the next twenty years, until the ingrained culture of lawlessness had been dislodged and Terran re-education had taken root in the present and future generation, none of its citizens were to be allowed to leave the planet or to resettle anywhere else.
