My dear friends and allies, and all the others (you know who you are),
It has been some time since I’ve commentated on the state of the Federal Union, and much to my regret I failed to issue my annual address around the time of Federation Day. Personal matters commanded my attention away from affairs of space, although I hope to resume a steady presence going forward now that they have concluded.
I would like to express that I find myself most concerned by the ascendance of the Gallentia Primacy, led by a cabal of Ultranationalist aspirants that count former Federal Senator Thibauld Tailler of the Labour-Populists amongst their number. This concern is not only raised because of the virulently anti-Caldari dogma espoused by the former Senator and the subsequent violence it has inflicted on our citizens proudly identifying as Caldari, including myself, but also of the potential for untold damage to the fabric of our Union amongst the stars of New Eden.
Make no mistake about it, the Gallentia Primacy will represent one of the greatest challenges to the integrity of the Federal Union that we have collectively faced in recent history. From the initial reports supplied, they are well-provisioned with a technologically sophisticated fleet and benefit from the presence of veteran members of the Federal services in their ranks with years of combat experience. It’s ranks proudly demonstrate their intolerance to the guiding principles of the Federation and will act with violence against it’s institutions as we have seen with the recent attacks that they have claimed responsibility for.
I can only express my sincerest gratitude to Federal Intelligence Office and Senate Oversight Committee for their vigilance and inexorable drive to pursue the truth, as distasteful as it might be to conceive an individual attaining high office through commanding the votes of their constituents, and yet express such disgraceful sentiments. I would also wish my success in their endeavour to bring the wayward Senator to justice, with my resources ready to assist if necessary to aid in his capture should they be required.
To those that have joined the ranks of the so-called Gallentia Primacy, I would ask this of all of you:
Have you forgotten the oaths that you swore to the Federation? That oath to uphold the Constitution and the rights of all citizens, not just those that you have identified as the chosen few that deserve to have paramountcy above all others? All those that are fortunate enough to reside in our Federation are considered Gallente by Federal law and afforded the same rights and equality in line with our sacred values, not solely those that have ancestry from Gallentia.
You look to the Guardians of Gallentia as an inspiration for a ‘better’ Federation, when the Guardians had no intentions of ever continuing the Union as it was intended to be. They built their power on a foundation of death and misery and exerted it to the detriment of all the people of our Union, comporting themselves ruthlessly and mercilessly. The very notion of the Federation that I call my home transforming into such ugliness is chilling, and I resolve to prevent it by whatever means I have at my disposal.
You have not only dishonoured yourselves on the altar of misguided, dangerous nationalism, you have forsaken that which you claim to strengthen through your actions. You commit acts which serve only to weaken the Federation and resurrect a shameful spectre of our past that has rightfully been condemned as morally bankrupt and beyond redemption as a legitimate ideology. In doing so, you spit on the labour and sacrifice of all those that came before that toiled to reconstitute the Union into a just cause once more, as well as those that have given their lives in defence of liberty and justice for all mankind since.
You will not be remembered kindly in history. Our descendants will look upon your deeds and witness the Gallentia Primacy to be exactly what it is. An aberration. A blight. An error that will be corrected and purged from relevance just as the Guardians of Gallentia were. The counterfeit varnish of patriotism camouflaging your bigotry and hatred will wash clean to reveal the rotten foundation of your deceit and treachery, and justice will be dealt swiftly, as assured as the morning sunrise to pierce the darkness with it’s light.
The only true aspect of Tailler’s virulence is that the future will belong to the Gallente, but not the vile concept that is envisioned in his dreams.
No, it shall belong to those that extol the virtues of our society, diverse that it is, for out of that diversity comes our strength and that strength provides the foundation of our unity. Where everyone can rise into greatness, to be respected for who they are and their deeds reflecting their character.
Gallentia Primacy will inevitably fail, I have no doubt. Against the trillions of us that value liberty, justice, and freedom for ALL in the Union, it shall never prevail.
