I refer, of course, to that philosophy that includes three of the four things (genocide being the fourth) that defines the Empire: Xenophobia, racism and (to a somewhat lesser extent) sexism. So far in the Clone Wars EU, we've seen no sign that HHC has come into existence or is even on the way. Indeed, the Senate is chock full of aliens and women, and Palpatine still has Mas Amedda, Sly Moore, Dar Wac and Uv Gizen on his staff. While the mostly alien makeup of the Confederacy could make up a partial excuse, Palpy's gonna need a REALLY good reason to (all of a sudden) vilify all who are not white human males. Simply declaring himself Emperor's not gonna cut it, since he then needs about 20 years to dismantle the Senate and all other "remnants of the Old Republic." (Plus he'll then have to explain his 180 to the people of his homeworld, Naboo) So what's your thoughts on the matter?
