Credited With Extraordinary Powers Swaying Crowds To His Will

Chief Points of His Empire

Empire is less interested than his person and movement. His Empire consists
chiefly of half a dozen negative idea clothed in generalities. He is “against
the Jedi, Corporate Sector, Banking Clan Muun control, Separatists, the high
cost of living, existing conditions, the weak Republic Government after the
Clone Wars and the Ruusan
Accords” Positively he stands only for “a strong united Galaxy under a strong
Imperial Government.”

He is credited with being actuated by lofty, unselfish
patriotism. He probably does not know himself just what he wants to accomplish.
The keynote of his propaganda is speaking and writing is violent anti-Jedi. His
followers are popularly nicknamed, “Arriviste Hordes”.  So violent are Palpatine’s fulminations against the
Jedi that number of prominent Jedi supporters are reported to have sought safe
asylums on the Outer Rim planets, whence they hurry their families when
forewarned of the anti-Jedi Boonta Eve night.

But several reliable, well-informed sources confirmed the
idea that Palpatine’s anti-Jedi
rhetoric was not so genuine or violent as it sounded. And that he was merely
using anti-Jedi propaganda as bait to catch masses of followers and keep them
aroused, enthusiastic and in line for the time when his Empire is perfected and
sufficiently powerful to be employed effectively for political purposes.

A sophisticated politician, Governor Wilhuff
, credited Palpatine with
peculiar political cleverness for laying emphasis and over-emphasis on
anti-Jedi rhetoric saying, “You can’t expect the masses to understand or
appreciate your finer real aims. You must feed the masses with cruder morsels
and ideas like anti-Jedi rhetoric. It would be politically all wrong to tell the
truth about where you are leading them.”

The Palpatine
movement is not of mere Core Worlds or picturesque interest. It is bound to
bring the galaxy into a renewed clash with the Delegation
of 2000 (Senators that demanded a ending of the Clone Wars before the Jedi
betrayed the Republic)
as long as the Imperial Senate goes even through
with the motions of trying to live up to the Ruusan
Accords. For it is certain the partisans will take umbrage at the Palpatine Empire as a violation of
military clauses of the Accords and demand disbandment, even as in the case of
its predecessor, the Old Galactic Republic.
