Chapter 16

Post by Freakzilla »

Production growth and income growth must not get out of step in my Empire. That
is the substance of my command. There are to be no balance-of-payment
difficulties between the different spheres of influence. And the reason for this
is simply because I command it. I want to emphasize my authority in this area. I
am the supreme energy-eater of this domain, and will remain so, alive or dead.
My Government is the economy.

-Order in Council The Emperor Paul Muad'dib

Paul's old Fremen guide leaves him on the street to Otheym's house and Paul hesitates before continuing in order to keep pace with his vision. A dwarf answers the door, this troubles Paul because there is no dwarf in his visions. He meets with Otheym, who has contracted some dissease on the Jihad. Paul offers to help him but he had allready spent all his money on the finest doctors. Otheym tells Paul of the conspiracy and the dwarf is a human distrans containing the names of all the traitors. Paul deduces that the dwarf is prescient, this is why he isn't in the visions. Paul takes the dwarf and leaves.
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
