I always enjoy seeing miners' reactions when they learn about the rules we've put into place in place in highsec.
Meet Szlam. He read the Code and took an immediate disliking to it.
Something new is happening in highsec now, thanks to the increased power of the New Order. A schism has developed between the miners who will pay, and those who will not yet pay.
I've noticed that the Code-compliant miners tend to be polite and respectful to others, regardless of their compliance status. Meanwhile, rebels like Szlam tend to be intolerant.
Upon learning that she was a permit holder, Szlam immediately challenged Shanija to a duel.
What gives a government its legitimacy? At what point does a regime lose its power to levy taxes? This is a philosophical question that has been pondered for a very long time. Now it was Szlam's turn to try answering the question.
...Eloquent as the Declaration of Independence.
Incredibly, Szlam's charm offensive didn't get him anywhere.
Sometimes the rebels call us a "cult". Yet we're the ones who are inclusive--it's the rebels who try to isolate people.
As he looked through the bios of the miners in the Brapelille ice field, Szlam was horrified to see how pervasive the Code has become.
At last, Szlam couldn't take it anymore. He created the Flower Revage Cartel and pursued a policy of war against the New Order.
Between Flower Revage Cartel and SPIONKOP's KILL A CULT, could an alliance of anti-Order corps be in the works?
