Default Re: A revisit to politics

One alien race in fiction is completely loyal to their leaders.

They still play games of Intel, because:
A) They can fake loyalty to another leader out of loyalty to theirs.
B) It is possible (Although very difficult) for them to switch loyalties.
C) Leaders. Multiple. Only one of which they are loyal to.
D) They have multiple-clan organizations - Such as a judicary Assasins' Guild.
If I only could remember half the things I'd forgot, that would be a lot of stuff, I think - I don't know; I forgot!

SO far as I can tell...intel really doesn't do much but cosmetic damage. I mean, sure, you can taint worlds, maybe blow up a ship or two. But against a competent opponent, all you accomplish is depriving your enemy of real estate on which he must build Intel installations for self defense.

While I agree with your overall assessment (that intel sucks)...

Humans are probably one of the few races that would stoop so low as to use Intel.
Making this assumption is as bad as making the assumption that all races would be corruptable (which you refuted).
Fist hand experience!!!
