You see a fence blocking your way to the base with a sign on it that says "MESSAGES ->," and follow it to a small hill. On the hill there is a small, run down shack that has a mailbox in front of the door. Through a window you can see what looks like a large machine gun. Better hope your not delivering spam.
If I had a nickel for every time... No, wait, **** nickels... If I had a HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL every time I heard that...
Circumstances prevent me from responding in person, but let me tell you this: my men know quite well their duties as soldiers of liberty. None of them cower in my presence, but they respect me. Rightly so. I give them what they desire and deserve: Liberty. LIBERTY LIBERTY LIBERTY! You say that pikmin are superior to all; nothing could be further from the truth. I will prove it to you. You will be made to know the sound of liberty.
Invasion? Unlike you, I would not sacrifice the lives of my men for something as silly as an argument, and certainly not for material gain. No, you will know liberty not by the force of my sword, but by the force of the world in revolt. You think yourself the rightful ruler of this world? That is your first mistake. The world is its own ruler. The Grand and Glorious Dweevil Federation devotes itself to this fact. You accept my challenge? What about your men? Did you ask them? My soldiers of liberty know I would not sacrifice a single one out of my own desire. What about you?
From the contents of your last letter, it does not surprise me that the idea of liberty is perplexing to you. You say that pikmin are the greatest, that Dweevils are weak, and that this is why we were oppressed. Then you go on to say that your job is to free the world of people like me. If we are so weak, then why are we still here? Why was I, the Grand and Glorious leader of the Dweevil Federation, able to slay Plaxicor at the Battle of Blood Stained Snow? I tell you, we Dweevils are reaching our moment of triumph, where the world will indeed be free! And in the process, you aristocrats who think so highly of yourselves, who think you are better than the rest, will be terminated. A new world order is emerging, one of liberty! LIBERTY LIBERTY LIBERTY! You say your men are on your side. Brilliant! That just makes more disgusting, odious fools who believe themselves to be the dominant race. I assure you, when liberty sees itself spread across the globe, you will either change your mind, or you will die.
Liberty is not the liberty to oppress others. Plaxicor attacked my ally and murdered his men simply for a economic reasons. He was a threat to liberty, and he needed to be eliminated. Otherwise, many more may have suffered the same fate. Killing is not always wrong; not when it is to save others from the killing sword of reactionaries like you. You would kill us all to suppress our liberties, just like you did to our Titan and many of his followers. You will die, not because you lack the freedom to live, but because you are a threat to those who desire it for themselves.
You say that I cannot judge you for the actions of your ancestors; this would be true, had you not demonstrated your desire to follow in their path. Your attack on Atrum Abyss; you tell me that this was unselfish? No, your men were lost for the sake of a few petals. More than that; the lives of your enemies were also lost, just because they refused to provide you funds. You accuse me of threatening? I only threaten those who threaten my goal at liberty. You say there will be no peace. Of course there won't! I never said anything to the contrary. But I firmly believe that war for ones own freedom is better than war for the will of the elite. You appeal to my moral code and then act according to your own selfish goals. Further bickering will only lead us to war, and for the sake of my men, I cannot allow it.
