A different kind of return it might be

I would be willing to bet, were it provable one way or another, that those non-burnt "offerings" didn't help drought-starved people of Khem any more than modern welfare schemes help Americans. The propaganda, on the other hand, is likely to be very similar ("Those ungrateful dirtbags would be as good as dead if it wasn't for us wise bureaucrats").

The other stuff is just me remaining ignorant. I was under the impression that the so-called Word was being claimed as the fountainhead of all liberty that mankind has ever known.
