    Tyrants are ubiquitous in history. Under their oppressive rule, creativity is stifled, not to mention liberty. Excising them has always proved a difficult and divisive task. There are those who, preferring the safety of conformity and predictability, little mind the loss of freedom. And yet, there are those, of whose number I am proudly one, who say "no!" to dictators and totalitarianism. Having thrown off the yoke of King George, why do we now settle under one just as awful as he? Why do we now forget the noble prinicples of America? I do not pretend to know. All that I know is this: "chaos" as he is known on the internet must be deposed. Not simply for the sake of freedom, but also puppies, which he eats.

    Some, the less informed or at least the less intelligent among my comrades, may ask what evil deeds chaos has committed to earn the moniker of tyrant. I have assembled a list of grievances that I hope will assuage not only the doubts of the stupid, but also reenforce the beliefs of the wise.

    1. He has refused to recognize the artistic merits of teh, liek, and 1337 speak. Potentially hilarious posts have been pre-empted by the strict and all-too-discerning "tastes" of chaos.

    2. He has refused to grant ggfan a fair hearing. It may be difficult to hear, my friends, but he is right! Smogon's current incarnation is the devil. Or, more accurately, it is the hell by which and through which the devil (chaos, aka Satan) acts! Be not deaf to the sweet prescience of the prophet, ggfan. He will dispel your illusions.

    3. He has established a constant state of trolling. Innocent Christian sites, exciting Dragonball Z sites, and others have felt the poison of chaos's tongue. Serebii.net most notably has endured, time and again, the supposedly light-hearted, but actually malicious, rantings of a lunatic bent on power and probably PCP.

    4. He has seen fit to lie about his true nature, that is, his whiteness. Perhaps "Our Dear Leader" thought that he could evoke some pity or affirmative action. And what did we do? We proved him right. No longer! Lies are lies. Why do we allow the scoundrel to benefit?

    5. Mentioned before, but really, he has ignored ggfan. That is just evil.

    And so on. Fascist policies, more reminiscent of Mussolini than the kind rule of the now scorned and mocked (what, because of a penchant for Pokemon sex? How is that in the least strange?) FlareonAtma, run rampant. Are we to sit and take this, because we think that we must? We have seen the Messiah! We have seen ggfan. All of the geniuses were laughed at, and so has he. But now it is time we pay attention. Otherwise, perhaps chaos will be allowed to eat more puppies. Act now, Pokemon compatriots! Let the beautiful maiden of my signature guide you to revolution!

    An essay I wrote on Tyranny:

    To delve deeply into tyranny is an exciting adventure. In depth analysis of tyranny can be an enriching experience. While much has been written on its influence on contemporary living, its influence on western cinema has not been given proper recognition. The juxtapositioning of tyranny with fundamental economic, social and political strategic conflict draws criticism from the aristocracy, who are likely to form a major stronghold in the inevitable battle for hearts and minds. Complex though it is I shall now attempt to provide an exaustive report on tyranny and its numerous 'industries'.

    Social Factors

    There is cultural and institutional interdependence between members of any community. When The Tygers of Pan Tang sang 'It's lonely at the top. Everybody's trying to do you in' [1] , they was clearly refering to the impact of tyranny on today's society. While the western world use a knife and fork, the Chinese use chopsticks. Of course tyranny raises the question 'why?'. Recent thought on tyranny has been a real eye-opener for society from young to old. It is intrinsically linked to adolescent inner acclimatisation.

    Political Factors

    Posturing as concerned patriarchs, many politicians guide the electorate herd to the inevitable cattle shed of 'equal opportunity.' Comparing tyranny and much of what has been written of it can be like comparing tyranny and former Wolves striker Steve Bull. Take a moment to consider the words of award winning journalist Francis Shandy 'consciousness complicates a myriad of progressions.' [2] One cannot help but agree when faced with tyranny, that this highlights an important issue. Both spectacular failure and unequaled political accomplishment may be accredited to tyranny. Is tyranny politically correct, in every sense? Each man, woman and to a lesser extent, child, must make up their own mind.

    Conclusion

    In my opinion tyranny has a special place in the heart of mankind. It inspires, influences the influencers, and never hides. As a parting shot here are the words of super-star Beyonce Beckham: 'My Daddy loved tyranny and his Daddy loved tyranny.' [3]

    This essay was written by me and only by me.

    I must step up and do something about this... this fiend. But do I have the necessary courage, strength, or... heart... to counter such a foe?

    I cannot do it alone. Stand by me, friends. I will lead us all to freedom!

    It's sad to hear that chaos is addicted to PCP after spending countless days in detox and rehabilitation camp for his love of PHP. I just hope that he beats that like he beat his addiction to PHP.

    Also, this thread needs more :tumbleweed:

    Soon, the zionist empire will rise, and ALL gentiles will be crushed, including chaos and excluding darck charley, because I know that one day he will be somebody and make Firebot.

    I'm going to be weird and say that there was something like this about N-man on Marble Palace at least a hundred years ago and it was significantly better in the sense of having more references to Adolf Hitler.
