You've got work more on that, as I don't feel guilty at all :P When I said "sorry", I was just being polite (something not everyone here seems to be accustomed to :P)


You expect courtesy on the internet?

Well, why, yes, I do. And sometimes the internet even meets my expectations.

I think the HM sexual enslavement was just supposed to represent the ultimate/evolved form of hydraulic despotism. Leto II forced the human 'prey' to evolve/wise-up but evidently some of the predators evolved too with even greater tyrannies.

In hydraulic despotism the tyrant controls a vital resource so everyone must do their bidding. The problem is this resource might be wrestled away from you or substitutes found. The HM essentially made their own selves (their bodies) the resource, meaning they had total exclusivity and also mobility where the 'resource' was concerned. Made them the most effective hydraulic despots of all time.

But with the unfortunate biproduct that their own organisation was seriously susceptible to in-fighting, as the power hierarchy had no intrinsic stability.
