Would you be an Autobot or a Decepticon? I think a lot of you who automatically say "Autobot" might be surprised if confronted with the reality of that choice. Let's say both Megatron and Optimus Prime are out vying for your alliegence. Both give speeches, make promises, state their ideals... Megatron promises you power, expansion of the Cybertronian race to other planets, vast unknown resources to be harvested from subject-worlds. You could bring peace to the galaxy through iron-fisted enforcement of the rule of law. You could stop wars between skirmishing races, nations, whole planets across the universe by putting them all under one banner - the decepticon cause. Sound familiar? Doesn't sound so bad, does it? Optimus Prime comes and tells you that Megatron's ideas are merely disguised terms for empire, subjugation, genocide, and mass-scale robbery of planetary wealth. He tells you that as Cybertronians you have a duty to protect sentient life and to reject Megatron's expansionist meddling for what it is - an empire of cruel domination and exploitation. Even at the expense of your own prosperity, you must help stop the Decepticons from destroying innocent worlds. You have heard how the Decepticons "deal" with dissent on Cybertron and a part of you believes Megatron may not be completely on the level, but who's to say that isn't all just Autobot propoganda? Optimus Prime is an inspiring figure, but you have your planet, your race, your friends - to consider in the equation. I like to think I'd still choose to side with Optimus, but really I don't think any of us can be sure since we'll never have to make that decision. Am I wrong here?
