They seem to be collectively suffering from the malaise of doubt; they appear to have the nature of duality, the Id and the Ego. That is quite likely at odds with the Imperial Creed according to most orthodox interpretations.On the other hand, they seem comfortable with ennui and despair, so perhaps all is well after all.........
A very thoughtful analysis, and as our historical record indicates, on the mark.
Embraced - "They appear to have embraced the nature of duality".
Leave me a note.
