Oh, I’m sure the Empire will make its attempt at subjugation just as the Federation did its own. All I can say is I can only hope to be alive on the day it does, so just as with the Gallente I can have the opportunity to crush their children’s skulls beneath my boot and put their parents in an oven where they belong.
However, that the Empire of today is left only with its withered laurels of past glories and halcyon days in an era of consistent and continued failures which leaves its citizens with nothing more than recourse to a life of clinging to, “No one can convince us we are wrong, so therefore we are still right,” is not my concern. Faith, just as with hope springs eternal after all.
To put my views in context though: There is a reason why the Caldari in their history have never resorted to slavery, even if it is a regular occurrence throughout human history during periods of war and conquest. Fundamentally, there is a humiliation and indignity to be permitted in life after defeat – death is preferable than living with shame. There is a disrespect inherent in defeating a foe and permitting them to live.
As such, when I look at the Empire and its subjugated people’s who were permitted to live, then as far as I can see they are the products of shame and humiliation whether they are Khanid, Udorian, Ni-Kunni, Ealur, Matari or whoever else the Amarr have conquered. If you are a conquered person, then in my eyes you are worthy of very little respect or dignity. In the State, such shame is reserved for the un-persons, and I look at yourself Mr. Shutaq, or Ms. Vea, or Kernher and Aria with the same measure of contempt. You are all defeated peoples whose personal or ancestor’s shame of submission you must live with, unworthy of either respect or dignity.
At least the Minmatar redeemed themselves with blood to defend who they are as a people.
So no, I have very little fear of the Empire, but a great deal of personal disgust. Least of all because it permits that very same kind of racial admixture that dilutes cultural purity of the blood. A Caldari serving Amarr? Hah. Why they’d be just like yourself Aldrith, a pig the Amarr the dress up in golden robes and try to tell others is a man.
