Not that I can contribute much for the topic because although my birthday traces me back to 2010 I’m kinda new here but just decided to give you my high sec solo player perspective.
I have been reading lots of null sec’ posts in different places almost advocating the end of high sec’ players and pvers, let me tell you that there are place for everyone and that EVE is not really a only-pvp-game, as a sandbox you can do whatever you want, whenever you want and with whom you want.
Back in 2010 I thought that it could be cool to do pvp and joined almost the first corp that contacted me (lol) but that is not really my core-game-mindset, so now that I return I decided to go solo. You null secs might just start to say that this not a game for me but let me remind you that any ecosystem needs symbiotic relations and I bet that all null sec players send their loots to Jita or Dodixie and eventually one of my alts already bought/sale any of it. So stating that solo players that don’t go for pvp don’t have a role on EVE is completely wrong, we all need everyone.
I remember that one of the first things that bring me to EVE was the fact that we could have a new universe that replicates most of the aspects of RL, and I assure you that war is not the only aspect of Human life, so why are we assuming that EVE universe needs to have only war aspects, especially if we can go to exploration missions, planetary interaction, trading, courier, researching, industrial… all these RPG paths – and some others – are part of EVE, and all can also direct or indirect contribute to pvp and/or to pve players life.
As for high sec resident the major issue that I encounter is the lack of possible pacific interaction with null corps, having create a corp for business purposes I don’t have direct interest on pvp but I would like to pursuit an economic path and wouldn’t mind to establish some joint ventures (just for the sake of RPG because we can do almost everything, not only with a couple of alts as me but also with hundreds of them as some players have).
Overall I agree with @Drago_Shouna, @Jeremiah_Saken @Jeremiah_Saken, @Yiole_Gionglao, @Buoytender_Bob and @DeMichael_Crimson
As for CSM, I would agree that at least one of the members should be clearly committed with high sec concerns and not for null sec corps interests - at least even for that member would be easier in order to manage personal interests and not being obliged to defend something that is not really his/her reality
