HNN Senior Outer Rim Analyst Benn Gleck explains the nature of life on the Outer Rim.
Dear fellow civilized human beings,
Once again, I have more to say to you about Aliens.
I know that it's unpopular, because of the political correctness that was spoon-fed to us by the Republic, but something just has to be said about those aliens on the Outer Rim.
A recent ethnography about a typical alien species in the forsaken system of Endor demonstrates exactly what I'm talking about. While our old so-called "inclusive" way of thinking would have us believe that these are sympathetic creatures who have warm mammalian instincts like we do, nothing could be further from the truth. Like most aliens, they have a cold rapacious instinct that would tear a human apart as soon as it could dig its teeth and claws into our skin.
As recent evidence in the Arkanis sector shows us, when aliens are left to run things, they quickly descend into chaos and savagery. The rebel and criminal uprisings there have left the sector in such disarray that the only way to ever make something of that region of space is to send in the Imperial Navy to level the place with turbolasers. Clean slate.
I know that the alien sympathizers who once served in the Senate don't want you to believe it. They want you to believe that the aliens' problems come from the poverty that human beings have somehow imposed on them. That's what alien apologists always want to do when they want you - good and loyal fellow humans - to pick up the tab of their unhuman ways.
Let's face it: humans brought civilization to the galaxy. Before we came along to jump-start interstellar society, they were nothing but savage beasts. They were just like the Ewoks in the ethnography, living in their huts and cannibalizing each others bodies.
What I'm trying to tell you is that you shouldn't feel surprised when you see aliens like the Ewoks, or alien-majority parts of space like the Arkanis sectors being savage. That's their natural state of being. What I'm saying is that you should not feel guilty for your humanity, or doubt the benevolence of the Empire, when you do see it. The Empire and humanity remain the galaxy's only hope for a better life. We're what stands between the shining light of Core-world civilization and Outer-Rim barbarism.
