Chapter 21

Post by Freakzilla »

Liberty and Freedom are complex concepts. They go back to religious ideas of
Free Will and are related to the Ruler Mystique implicit in absolute monarchs.
Without absolute monarchs patterned after the Old Gods and ruling by the grace
of a belief in religious indulgence, Liberty and Freedom would never have gained
their present meaning. These ideals owe their very existence to past examples
of oppression. And the forces that maintain such ideas will erode unless
renewed by dramatic teaching or new oppressions. This is the most basic key to
my life.

-Leto II, God Emperor of Dune: Dar-es-Balat Records

After three nights following Teg's mentat memorized path through the forrest laid out by Patrin, Teg announces that they will change direction. Unexpectedly, they are still near the keep and on foot. Teg can't figure out Schwanyu's violent disobedience and is saddened at Patrin's death. Patrin had lead the searchers as a decoy to a no-ship, the expected. Their destination is an ancient Harkonnen no-globe that Patrin had found in his youth on Gammu.
They were destroyed because they lied pretentiously. Have no fear that my wrath
will fall upon you because of your innocent mistakes.

~Leto II, God Emperor
