The world of EVE is filled with propaganda, lies, spin, etc. All of that stuff takes effort. My job is a lot simpler: I just tell people the truth about highsec.
MinerBumping reader Ronaldous Stern wasn't sure what to make of all the posts I write. Is this an honest blog, or is it another outlet for EVE propaganda? Many "neutral" players wonder the same thing. Ronaldous took his curiosity a step further than most: He actually contacted a rebel leader to hear their side of the story.
The rebel leader in question? liberty.
Yes, that liberty. We've featured her literary works in previous posts. The MinerBumping posts made liberty sound like... How do I put this politely? They made liberty sound not very credible. Ronaldous went directly to the source to find out the truth about liberty.
MinerBumping didn't exaggerate. liberty is liberty. Her reply to Ronaldous was another of her trademark paragraphless blocks of run-on sentences. She began by decrying Agent Bing Bangboom's "effective and dirty trick": declaring war. In the same breath that she admitted its effectiveness in keeping her alliance's numbers down, she claimed it "has in no way slowed us down".
I'm not sure what liberty was driving at in this next section, but she admitted I have a lot of influence in highsec--so much so that her alliance doesn't seem worthy of my attention. Don't be so surprised, liberty. I'm the Father of the New Order. I'm a multitasker and I love all of my highsec children.
Then liberty blames the New Order for causing "market prices" to "go up in price dramatically". liberty also claims the New Order is "reluctant to knuckle down and do the hard labour industry players do". Yes, because clicking the mouse a couple times an hour is so difficult.
liberty concludes her attempt to win over Ronaldous by saying that the New Order is a dictatorship that only benefits one player: James 315. Is it true? No. Nearly 200 billion isk in New Order shares have been sold. Yet I am poor. Why? Because I am a river to my people!
Needless to say, liberty unintentionally drove Ronaldous into the New Order camp. But if you want to hear things from the rebels' point of view, you can join the channel liberty advertised, USATO Prime and friends, to get it straight from the horse's mouth.
