Innocence

In the stone age, man unraveled the secrets of sowing seeds and harvesting rudimentary crops. There were many hit and miss techniques and the process was not well understood. Sometimes hunger claimed the lives who had misjudged or planted too little and their Guardian angels werent able to save him.

Countless hundreds of generations later the science of farming was well known. An industrialized world now was able to squeeze in some cases, 20 times more crops per acre than the farmers of old. Larger companies realized that buying farms from the smaller independent farmers and running vast corporate farms could be quite profitable. As the corporate interests competed against the smaller farming communities, they brought more expensive industrial machines that could outwork 100 men.

There were a few leaders that represented these corporate farms, one of which stood out from the rest. He was the Organized man. He ran the collectively very smart men who realized the need for cooperation to maximize profits. These were ruthless men who would stop at nothing to reap the maximum profit imaginable without regard to the damage they did to the land. They formed an exclusive club and would try to out-compete the smaller, more independent men of the soil. Any who voiced the slightest even the slightest disagreement were cut out of the collectives benefits.

The Organized man was able to make broad agreements with the important men, and they were able to keep prices high and most of the crops harvested were by their underlings who knew how to keep their mouths shut to have continued access to the megafarm's resources.

The residents of the communities around the large corporate farms complained of the bad practices but the important men that organized the corporate farms turned a deaf ear. The land suffered under the abuse and it's richness was showing signs of nutrient depletion. The corporate farms did not even practice crop rotation so intent were they to maximize their profits at any cost to the environment.

Betrayal

One of the big important men began to grow tired of the elitist mentality among the senior staff on an executive level. Deep down, he knew that what was happening to the land was wrong. One day he decided to set matters right. He enlisted his brother to have a mold made of his face, not many people knew his brother and he as donned his disguise, he wondered if it would ever be found out?

Disguised now, he set forth a plan of action. Because of his high rank position within the corporation, he knew it's secret inner workings, down to the last filthy detail. He knew it's strengths lied in coercion and total control and also he knew the weaknesses of the operation.

He set about executing his nefarious scheme by recruiting those who had rallied against the cold impersonal corporate farms and their destructive tendencies. Those who had spoken publicly against the corporation were contacted and they pledged to support the destruction of the pastures and even the expensive combines employed thereon. He managed to gather a local politician for his cause and asked him to try to the the Government to apply standards to the farms, and protect the land. The bureaucracy turned a deaf ear and nothing was done.

The disguised man rallied those not working for the collective, effectively free citizens to his cause. He called for an all out attack on the corporate farms, and the citizens showed up in force to shut down the destructive practices that they felt were ruining their community. They succeeded wildly at first, destroying fully two thirds of the land, and many of the fancy pieces of industrial hardware.When the megafarms started anew-they returned and razed the land.

Glee

Those who burned the land celebrated their great victories and knew that they had done something and had made a difference. Never before had so many people from such diverse groups, banded together and achieved results with so little effort. The public egged them on and sang their praises.

The public outcry was immense both for, and against the Disguised man and his followers. Even the government noticed and called for talks. It was obvious something needed to be done.The attacks on the corporate farms became less frequent, and less successful as the corporations hired security, and the citizens had to return to their normal jobs.

Woe

The Important men began to fret and cast suspicions upon the true identity of the Disguised man. How had someone been able to precisely hit them at the right time in the most damaging way possible? Surely only an insider they thought could be so capable of such wonton destruction.

The thought of all their hard work and their power over their fellow man slipping from their grasp was unthinkable. If the farming collective fell apart, they would no longer shape a mans destiny by restricting his access to the their resources at their slightest whim. Even as the fields burned, they searched for answers. They tried burning the fields themselves and assisting the malcontents other times to no avail. They even attacked the good citizens who tried to save the land at one point!

Eventually the Important men gathered evidence that proved the Disguised man was really the Organized man. In their hearts and minds, the deception cut to the bone. Many were left dazed and full of sorrow when they had discovered Krissada's deception.

The masses realized that Krissada had turned against his own community, not for profits nor fame or any wealth, tangable or otherwise. No, he had betrayed his own for something much more worthwhile, his principles. He has organized two communities, and brought them together like a wrecking-ball and an abandoned building.

Krissada you are a hero to all informed players knowledgeable enough to tell that this is an abomination,and all who hold dear our hopes for New Eden.

Thank you.

Strange how it took the organized man over 12months to find his 'concience' eh? Maybe their is an upper limit to waller size huh.

And griefer praise means nothing in the bigger picture, the guy betrayed hundreds if not thousands to satisfy his own agenda with no thought what so ever to those who he was about to turn on. Explain it how you will, the fact remains ammzi has tarnished his very good reputation, and for what, to 69 with a self important CSM?

Wouldnt say it was worth it really, but time will tell if people can forgive and forget in certain circles, worst comes to the worst, he can always join you guys griefing other in null sec right? Seems he prefers that path over building friendships within the communities he helped create.

Just sayin'

People have long memories, especially when its them thats been betrayed.

EVE IS REAL!!!
