Just a thought about "what's wrong with Dulinor"...

His entire plan is top-down. It seems as though Dulinor and some of his fellow zealots have come up with a Master Plan, which they have proceeded to attempt to impose upon reality regardless of the cost.

They don't seem to have actually asked the people it is supposed to benefit what they think about it all...

Just a thought.

My biggest problem with Dulinor is that his plan was crap. The right of assassination only works if you keep Capital. If you don't have the fleets needed to hold Capital, you shouldn't be killing the Emperor.

So, as smart as Dulinor might have been, as reasonable as his justifications may have been, his plan was flat out stupid, and doomed to catastrophe.

He should have taken his Coronation Fleet to Capital in 1116, not in 1130.

Death to all Nobles; they've never been anything but spoiled maniacs who destory billions in their personal feuds, and have never been anything but protection racketeers. Good riddance to the scum.

Just as the Hohenzollerns fled Germany with a bunch of loot, after destroying the economy and killing millions, and leaving thier 'people' to the mercies of the 'FreiKorps', so did Strephon and the rest of the 'Dukes', after there was nothing left to steal. Who in their right minds would consider 'restoring' any of these psychopaths and their 'Imperium' ?????

Death to Dulinor and all traitorous enemies of the Imperium! (Or at least Incarceration at Hard Labor.) SSSSSSS! boo!

So you prefer to have the very fate and flower of humanity's destiny controlled by what then? Sector Warlords? How about regional or even star system governors making laws as they see fit or mismanaging trade to the point of starvation? Perhaps we could go back to no jump drives, commerce, stability, or other such "psychopathic" notions.

Most nobles have to work for a living, like all loyal Citizens should. Many may not like that because they feel like perhaps THEY could make better "nobles", if one could call it that.

While it may be in vogue or perhaps "cool" to talk anarchy, few find it palatable once it comes, what. This only really hits home when you need the Imperial Navy (or the infrastructure that supports it) because some renegade traitor's ambition has outgrown his brain...

You cite many examples that I agree with, personally, but I must ask: are the "commoners" any better? Are they as a genralized group totally free of corruption?

Please pardon an old "psychopath's" ravings, what?
