The Praetor cannot help but be disgusted by your declarations, 'Chaka'.

You need only look at your own history. Genocide, state-sanctioned rape, the scapegoating of another race for all society's ills - a fantastical society of madmen and monsters.

Worse than the old world, your kind have degenerated into mindless barbarism. You cry 'imperialism', throw mindless accusations at nations across the planet, and for what?

You've declared your own history well enough. Conquering lands that you never had any right to, wiping out their former owners. Accused nations who have never so much as contemplated going to war in South America of planning a campaign of 'pillaging and raping', without the slightest bit of evidence besides a map that - for all we know - you could have drawn yourself.

I'm unsure about you, Chaka, but we civilised nations look down upon raping and pillaging. We do not condone committing genocide against ethnic minorities. And we do not permit lies to be told about us by genocidal, racist, rapist warlords!

Here, I shall quote among my greatest personal heroes. One of the men who, in the wake of the event, the memory of whom inspired me to stand against the horrors of the Old World, and build a better world for humanity.

"I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony with equal opportunities."

Tell me, Chaka - looking at this quote, the words of your greatest national hero, the words of the man whose struggle against apartheid was the greatest in history, the words of a man who fought to the bitter end for the ideal of equality -

Is your nation, this abomination of brutality and barbarism, what Mandela dreamed of? Or, rather, is it what he fought against?

Apartheid, as I'm sure you know, means 'apartness'. Is committing genocide against every other ethnic minority not 'apartheid', then? Have you not become what you so blame, and despise?

But, if you wish for a formal response from the Império - not merely to your lies and slander, but to your world - then here is what I shall say. We shall stand against you. We shall fight you to the bitter end, if need be, to ensure that our world - the world of the free, the world of the strong, where all men stand on their own merits, not the mere colour of their skin - is protected.

And, to conclude, Mandela's quote -

"It is an ideal which I hope to live for, and see realised. But, if necessary, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die."
