Heh, you're asking this on a forum predominantly filled with Tau players? If so.. most of us have already joined the Greater Good...

Nonetheless, welcome to the forums =)

I think he's talking in a first person context. As in, "If you were an Imperial living on a planet bordering the Tau Empire and you had a way to immigrate to a Tau world (Legal or Illegal) would you?"
If thats not what your asking I'm starting a topic asking that one.

Let's see If I were an Imperial I'd endure:

Harsh labor with little hope for advancement in horrid living conditions, unless I was a guardsman, in which case I'd be treated to budget equipment(compared to other races) and regularly placed in life or death situations facing horrid monsters and flying tanks and other unspeakable things.* And by the way if I ever fail in the slightest or am captured and subsequently rescued, I'll likely face penal servitude for the rest of my life for said failure.

Let me think a second....

Ummm... Yes, I would join the Tau Empire.

I'd join the Tau. They're cleaner, they have better tech, and when I come up with something new (which I often do) I won't get killed. They're more open-minded.

If the Tau came to Earth, right now, I'd probably go. Anything to get my hands on a Broadside.

No.

If I was an Imperail citizen then their is a good chance I would be doing what I'm doing now, and I quite like my life as it is. If not of course I would try and get into the Imperail Navy, see the Galaxy and be safe in a massive massive massive starship.

(of course their are a large number of high order postions in the Imperium as well) To be honest I kind of like my greediness, but then I do support socialism in most forms.

I would miss my freedom I believe, conforming to one belief, structure and role in life would be slightly...dull

I would give myself wholey to the Tau'Va if it ensured two things:

1. The safety of my family and fellow humans.

2. If I had the chance to EARN the same level of respect as a Tau.

I'm with Genmotty. If I was an Imperial Citizen (which is somewhat of an oxymoron), I'd probably be doing what I'm doing now. If the Tau came and tried to get me to follow their Greater Good, I'd tell them where to shove it.
