I'll sell you that jacket for 10 billion ISK.

A little trust goes a long way. The less you use, the further you'll go.

They don't. Can you not see for yourself that CONCORD is the government in the space of the old Empires? Even the Matari, as they rebuild their society to bring the Tribes back to the position of primacy they ought to enjoy, bend the knee to CONCORD's orders. That is not a reduction of sovereignty, it is a denial of it.

Yet you expect people to bend the knee to a self-proclaimed Emperor and render themselves to his will. I wonder what's worse: your hypocrisy or Concord's rightly silence on sensitive matters.
An interesting fact to this "Emperor": Pope is not used as designation in the Amarr Empire. Instead, a very distinctly different faction uses it. Following them is even more interesting when it comes to getting this individual on the throne. From what I am aware of, they employ an even more radical interpretation of scriptures and slavery.

My ridicule, heavy criticism and general pale outlook about your or CCP's ideas is nothing but an encouragement to prove me wrong. Give it a try.

I expect only that people will take charge of their own lives. Yes, I put my faith in leaders who have thrown in with the Emperor's cause: to remove the False Empress from power. Have I done so because I am personally beholden to him? Or have I done so because I trust those who have not led me poorly in the past?

Or, as a proud member of the Sebiestor Tribe, have I done so because of the chaos and destruction a civil war would render within the Amarr Empire?

I expect people to take responsibility for their own lives, to own their actions, acknowledge motivations, and not simply hand over their self-determination to the thugs with the biggest guns. CONCORD's 'silence' on sensitive matters is no silence at all: they opposed the proliferation of new station-shielding systems, the distribution of Entosis technology, and now this. This is not silence, this is 'shut up and stop asking questions'.

As you yourself can attest, out beyond the Empires' reach, beyond CONCORD's thralldom, we are not all unified, and we are not all rallying to any cause... save one: each of us to our own. That is what those capsuleers still allowing themselves to be shackled and yoked by CONCORD's authority should hearken to.
