This post has a two-fold purpose:
The first being the posting of a link, to a website, my site.
It's an incipient political movement of which I've been assigned the duty of writing the content for.
As I was considering my position on this task, I was struggling to assign an official name to the job position:
Other names came to mind:
(what do you think?)
The movement or group is called ULA - Unified Liberty Alliance.
Here are the links:
The Myth of Progress
Dissolution of Eternity
The DA party debunked
Any case, more importantly.. I want any friends or people in the audience to hopefully take a look.
Tell me if the content is applicable. If it applies to our planet, and the people of its age.. as we enter the incipient 21st century.
Remember, my audience are all the people of South Africa, in all their shades and flavours. And any unknown entity seen by the reader, can either be found through cursory research, or simply read in the assumed context.
PS : All the above content was produced within the mid region of the year 2020,
before and entering May.
THE SECOND PURPOSE OF THIS POST:
Many a notion surrounding the timeline and history of Starcraft:
I wish to draw attention to all the political entities that feature:
The United Earth Directorate, the Dominion, The Confederacy, the United Power League..
In the future I will use their concepts to draw upon worthy discussion.
But first.. what do people think of the methods of Arcturus Mengsk?
Regarding what he envisioned..
Was Mengsk a skilled politician, or an accomplished tactician?
Were his methods unforgivable, or worthy to be recognised as the greater good?
He used the Zerg infestation, and steered them like a pervasive plague, to weaken and cause confusion midst the confederate Koprulu sector,
and then used the Zerg as an excuse to unite the people, promising 'victory' afterwards under the new banner he forged, crowning himself Emperor.
And so.. we would have to see if the Terran Dominion was stronger than the Confederacy.
One true thought we could gather from Mengsk, is he apparently did unite people under his banner.. his new rule:
according to him he said:
"Already many of the dissident factions of joined us..."
From the Inauguration speech
Finally.. This might seem stupidly materialistic and blithely devoid of sensible consideration.
technically, the Dominion was healthy before Jim Raynor started dealing his strategic
blows upon it: Viz. Wings of Liberty Starcraft 2.
Whatever the case shows to be, Arcturus Mengsk was not a libertarian.
He did not hate government or promise a flattened equalized world of bountiful dreams and ideas of freedom. Arcturus Mengsk wasn't really left-wing. (If there is such a thing)
And, his methods were actually somewhat covert, and were aimed to subvert key elements of the confederacy.. rather than bulldozing forward in an aggressive fashion, screaming and shouting many a key-phrase of so-called Liberty and Freedom.
In essence, what I'm trying to say here is Arcturus Mengsk was not a liberal.
