aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively in the
interests of the ruling class -- whether that class be hereditary royalty,
oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy.
-Politics as Repeat Phenomenon: Bene Gesserit Training Manual
Farad'n, Tyekanik and Wensicia are contemplating The Preacher's offer to deliver Duncan Idaho and Lady Jessica to them for assylum. This may confirm the rumors of trouble in House Atreides. There's also rumors of Alia and Javid, who is obviously double agent but a valuable source of information. It could also be a ruse. They take into account that Idaho was a ghola but can't see any Tleilaxu motive. Jessica, a Bene Gesserit who'd trained Muad'dib, would be a dangerous but extremely valuable captive. They decide to make further inquiries into the offer.
