nice one for Arwes :)
Also please note that Blueprint might be problematic as it belongs to palantir:


The firm, founded in 2014, is also controversial because its co-founder, PayPal billionaire Peter Thiel, was an adviser and financial backer of Donald Trump during his 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. In 2009, Thiel wrote that he “no longer believe[s] that freedom and democracy are compatible.” He also condemns “confiscatory taxes” that support government programs. The company also had a hand in building the intrusive global surveillance capabilities of the U.S. National Security Agency.

and From:

But Palantir polarised opinion in the US before the backlash against big tech. Its critics do not focus on the fortune its founder Thiel made with PayPal or as an early investor in Facebook but on his support for Trump. Palantir has faced protests in the US over its role in facilitating the Trump administration’s mass deportation of undocumented migrants through its contract with US immigration enforcement agency ICE.
Palantir was also reported to have been involved in discussions over a campaign of disinformation and cyberattacks directed against WikiLeaks and journalists such as Glenn Greenwald. It later insisted that the project was never put into effect and said its association with smear tactics had “served as a teachable moment”.
And Palantir was willing to step in at the Pentagon after Google employees rebelled over its involvement in Project Maven, which seeks to use AI in battlefield targeting.
