Moff Election in Bastion

April 27, 2012

Galactic Reporters went in Bastion where election for a Moff will be organised.

Elections will be held in Bastion to name a Moff which will be charged to put the system back on its feet. According to the candidate Sucellos, elections are critical since “the current mental health facilities and hospitals are not able to cope with acting as prisons for persons committing violence on planet.” The planet was recently the target of raids. Even though they did not succeed this showed Bastion needs better relationship with outsiders. Joining a larger entity was envisaged, but it’s still matter to discussion.


Sucellos’ politic party, the communist party, campaigns for the basic need of the people, water and power, are satisfied first. To deal with other power would need Universal demands will be fulfilled, such as the Pardon of all criminality, Full Citizenship, and Home Rule to negate discriminatory laws. The Party “support Labour throughout the Galaxy particularly on rights to strike, improved working conditions, rights of sentients being expanded to mechanicals, freedom of conscience and the reduction of slavery in the work place as slaves are not paid for their labour and cannot form labour unions.

They support the labour in the Galaxy and claim that, once organised, they would be able to win over most crisis, explaining how it was done or could have been done in Bespin under siege and Uvena Prime’s virus outbreak. In a military level, the collective bargaining from soldier would improve not only their condition but the efficiency of the army. He address to the audience proclaiming “Working Sentients of the Galaxy Unite you have nothing to loose but the chains of your exploiters!”

They have no affinity with the Tython Liberation Force which also claim to free the people. Sucellos failed to see a positive agenda of government in their striking actions.

The elections are open to most of the people. Any outsiders might come and is welcome to debate with the candidates and the people, in the hope to present a wide range of possibilities. Hopefully we’ll be able to interview other candidates before the votes.

    Everybody is able to make slogans such as “The Light Side of the Force is the spice of the People” or “Sith equal Jedi plus Electricity”. When the people are exploited by a power monger clique, they have to take an action to free themselves!

    I foresee legally giving “mechanicals” the same liberties as organic sentients to be difficult, especially considering they’re simply machines whose personalities are merely programs.

    For the most part, only those with evolved AIs or mechanical civilizations themselves deserve the same rights as us. For the majority of droids, they’re simply automated tools and machines that happen to be programmed to banter and SIMULATE a personality.
    That means not all droids and AIs are capable of developing personalities or having personalities of their own, and are often times are merely programmed to behave like they have one; a lot of the personalities droids have are default stock programs and preset behavior software.
    A -normal- droid is only as sentient as the factory that made it.

    Also. In Bastion, Moff elect you!
