But Horus' mind was corrupted. He saw an unreal future because of the Chaos Gods. And about the Tau perspective: every race sees his own as good and the others as evil. But the Tau at least try to incorporate them instead of just killing them like most races do.

in the greater good you can worship who ever you want. actually any one who doesnt join the greater good IS hostile. have you ever seen this happen tau: do you want to join the greater good. gaurdsman*GM*: nah i worship the emperor tau: you can still worship him its just you will serve the greater good. GM: o rlly?? nah ill pass. tau: okay see you later GM: have a nice day you usually see either this tau: you want to join the greater good? GM: DIEEE FOUL XENO *pew pew pew zzzzzap* or this tau: join the greater good? GM: can i still worship the emperor tau: yep GM: im in

It not so black in white. During war against other races, Tau Commanders often urge their enemy leaders to stop resisting the Tau Empire and that they would be allowed to retain their faith as long as it worked in accordance to the Greater Good, but if they refuse the tau deem them hostile and kill them.

With the other races it's just 'die!'. At least the Tau try friendly ways. And at least they have an idea of where they are going: - Imperium: kill every xeno, mutant and heretic you see. - tau try and form a galaxy spanning empire where all races work together for the greater good

This has nothing to do with our current discussion but would you say that the tau government is set up like a communist regime?? I think so....

First of all zeke, i've got all the codexes v4 and v3, + the rule books, and LOADS of novels, and i can tell you that to become a space marine u have to be a hell of a more courageos than to become a IG, space marines suffer the most atroecous stuff, and yes maybe after they have their super genetics to help them, but a IG, in real, flees( obviously in the books they are the mega men), i know what im talking about, i love the guard, Karshkins are like the 3rd coolest moddels after Ravenwing bikes and Sammael. ^^ . But they do attack, and loose alot of men each time, an example of that is in the V5 rulebook. As for the Space they attack the commander on critical locations, thats it, so how do you expect an army attacking just 1 spot to win without the big "mob" marchin behind, without IG the galaxie would fall, true. As for the tau, im not saying they are not good, im just saying i find it a LITTLE bit fishy how they want utopia and well the rise of the ethereal caste.
