Hello good people of the IGS, capsuleers, curious average citizens. One of the greatest things about being a capsuleer is that I can say what I want, because I’m not dependant upon my clan’s support anymore. I do understand what I’m about to say might have some… Consequences, but I would like to stress that following message is just my opinion and mine alone. And maybe somewhat satirical.
I’ve not hidden the fact that I don’t really like the esteemed Sanmatar. He has done everything he criticized Karin Midular for, and worse. He bleats on about how we come for our people - the same rhetoric he was elected for (even though, he was the only candidate in the sham of an election) - yet he does nothing for the Tribes, and he gets praised for doing nothing. Well, he did visit the Imperial Coronation - something he himself would have had the mobs retrieve the Ray’s head for, I’m sure.
He is a hypocrite of the highest order, and has troublesome and frankly concerning emergency powers. Of course, he should step down after this emergency is over. However, I have my doubts as to when this emergency that has accorded him his newfound powers will be over - when the Triglavians and Drifters are gone? Never? Previously he was mostly just a rubber stamp and a figurehead, now, he is an active threat to his own people.
I was impressionable youth … well, youthish, when he came to power, and thankfully, the solution to this problem comes from the man himself and the “Elder Network” that supports him. I learned that if you don’t like someone, and they have the potential to be politically, militarily or culturally a problem, you should kill them. I think we should kill Maleatu Shakor. Leaving evidence of his corruption on his body is optional. After that, we should have a sham Tribal Council session to name a new Sanmatar.
And if we don’t like whom they choose, we should kill them too. Oh, do you think that is a bit harsh? Well, maybe. But to be honest, none of them had scrotal or ovarial fortitude to actually say no to the current regime and their shady powergrabs, even with an entire Tribe behind them. No, instead they chose to continue the descent into dictatorship. The Tribal Council is a joke, a puppet.
The birth cry of the Tribal Republic from the ashes of the gallentean styled democracy was shameful in the extreme and the constitution of the new Republic was written in blood. It was for the Greater Good, I’m sure, but I feel that it shames us all to this day and it will do so for perpetuity.
Thanks a lot, assholes.
