    Supremacy: "Look at you, hacker: a pathetic creature of meat and bone, panting and sweating as you run through my corridors. How can you challenge a perfect, immortal machine?"

    Harmony: "What is a drop of rain, compared to the storm? What is a thought, compared to the mind? Our unity is full of wonder which your tiny individualism cannot even conceive."

    Purity: "Nah."

    I'd go with literary quotes for the propaganda:

    Supremacy 1: "Where, O Death, Is Thy Victory?"
    (John Donne)
    Supremacy 2: "This perishable body must put on the imperishable"
    (Saint Paul)
    Supremacy 3: "O, that this too too sullied flesh should melt."
    (Shakespeare, Hamlet)

    Purity 1: "O brave new world that hath such people in it"
    (Shakespeare, The Tempest)

    Purity 2: "What a piece of work is man!"
    (Shakespeare, Hamlet)

    Purity 3: "A pure hand needs no glove."
    (Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter)

    Purity 4: "Whatever is, is RIGHT"
    (Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man)

    Harmony: "A sea-change
    into something rich
    and strange"
    (Shakespeare, The Tempest)

    "O Harmonicus Mundi!"
    (Johannis Kelpler)

    There are some solid propaganda lines here, but I'll take a shot at it:

    Supremacy: Ingenuity. Immortality. Supremacy.

    Purity: Earth's memory lives on.

    (OP's Harmony line is perfect - can't think of anything nearly as good.)

    You put it better by using one word.
    But for Supremacy I would still say: Improve (instead of Evolve)

    I agree with Purity and Harmony.

    I agree. Adapt and Evolve mean more or less the same thing.

    About adapt and evolve, I guess it's just a matter of nuance, it depends on how people use the words. Evolve also has the connotation of moving on to the "next phase", and the Supremacy ideal fits the logical progression of humanity better (progress and technology), that's why I would put it with Supremacy rather than Harmony; while adapt is always strictly used in relationship with a change in the external conditions.

    Basically, you can evolve in a static environment, while you adapt to a changing one.

    Improve does have the advantage of leaving all environment issues aside, and fits better to the robotical context of Supremacy. I actually like improve a lot!

    Supremacy - There is no limit.

    a bit more serious than my last post (though the first two in that post could actually work, even if i was kidding):
    Purity: "Humanity is beautiful. Keep it that way."
    Supremacy: "Technology has revolutionized our lives, so now we're taking it a step further."
    Harmony: "One small step for man; one even smaller footprint!"

    Purity - Robots don't have reproductive bits and mutants are too hideous to ever want to use them

    I think this would convince almost everyone. I would have made it raunchier, but... rules.

    Stealing liberally from the tabletop game Eclipse Phase, I'd have Supremacy as:

    Your body is hardware; upgrade it.
    Your mind is software; program it.
    Death is a disease; cure it.

    Purity - If it ain't broke don't fix it!
    Purity - Never forget.

    Supremacy - All your base are belong to us, end of line.
    Supremacy - No Fear, only Eternity.

    Harmony - I am he, as your are he, as you are me, and we are all together.
    Harmony - One is All.

    A 'sinful' take faction mottos:

    Supremacy: "The only sin is limitation." - R.W. Emerson 'Circles' (1841)

    Harmony: "This is our sin, exploiting the Earth and not allowing her to give us what she has within her" - Pope Francis (2014)

    Purity: "There is only one major sin: impatience. Because of impatience they were expelled, because of impatience they do not return." - F. Kafka 'Aphorisms' (1917)

    Harmony:

    Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better (Albert Einstein)

    There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more (Lord Byron)

    One touch of nature makes the whole world kin (William Shakespeare) <- really like this one!

    The good man is the friend of all living things (The man with the nukes, AKA Gandhi)

    For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver (Martin Luther)

    Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature's inexorable imperative (H. G. Wells)

    The ground we walk on, the plants and creatures, the clouds above constantly dissolving into new formations - each gift of nature possessing its own radiant energy, bound together by cosmic harmony (Ruth Bernhard)
