Non-Member ArtistTo "apotheosize" something is to deify or glorify it. I think what you actually wanted to say in that second paragarph was "proselytizing" which is to preach to a crowd. Also, if I understood this story correctly, what it most closely reminds me of is people in China who are hired to place pro-China remarks in chatrooms and blogs (oh yes, they exist). I must admit that one of the most fundamental problems with the Empire in torn world is that the basic premise is faulty; you assume that a government which has significant economic and political control over its people will not use that control in non-benevolent ways and that few-to-none will eventually end up being repressed or abused under their incredibly pervasive licensing system. While I might let you get away with that premise if the Empire and Torn World were populated by aliens, considering that the race in question is human, I consider this to be an incredibly unlikely premise that is not born out by the historical evidence.
Toni SturtevantI love this! It says so much about the complexity of the South. Both about the complexity of the empire and it's denigrators.
Valerie Joanne HigginsLove this for the really urban feel, and the gadget. Want one of those.
