Do you accept your responsibility to stop the use of torches and promote equality?

  1. The Anti-Torch Movement

    Since its creation, Empire Minecraft has suffered from a plight of unfairness and lack of empathy.
    The culprit is none other than:

    The Torch

    Torches have provided the dark light of insecurity among the people of the Empire for over three years.
    This ignorance should not be allowed to roam free, feasting on the flesh of the innocent!

    Here you all are, your eyes soaking in the light of the Torch.
    You are privileged to have such luxuries.
    Not everyone has the same opportunities as you do.
    The poor, the new, the returning; all are coated in the tar of darkness and depression.

    In order to reach the equality the Empire deserves, we must all throw away our privileges and our titles!
    Your Rank or Time does not affect what you could do for your fellow players,
    for if one player cannot have light, then nobody can!

    I call upon the People of the Empire to throw away the light, and embrace the darkness!
    Fight the Monsters, do not prevent their spawns.
    Establish a foundation of Fairness to build the future generations of Empirians!

    The light does not always guide us to righteousness.
    I call upon the People of the Empire to stand with me, and to stop this foolishness!
    As a torch extinguishes, a new light--of equality, of happiness--rises from the ashes.

    As the Empire descends into darkness, a life of egalitarianism awaits.

    Extinguish a torch: Make EMC fair!

    There is a dark side to all this (obviously). Torches light up areas, lit areas stop light updates, light updates add to lag.

    So you're basically asking us to sabotage the Empire, exactly something I'd expect from a Miner :D

    Oh well, since I'm on a roll....

    Why I say all this? For my ally is the redstone, and a powerful ally it is. Automation creates it, makes it work. It's energy surrounds us and binds us.. Reddish beings are we! Not this blocky matter... You must feel the redstone!
