Zhodani Governments

Considering the notion that Zhodani government is fairly structured and detailed wouldn’t you agree that the System governments are either a: 3) self perpetuating oligarchy (i am more inclined to agree with this form tan any other) 4) representative democracy, 6) captive government for colonies and captures systems, C) charismatic oligarchy (everybody is on prozac). Any comments?


Does anybody have any opinion on proles developing their Psion abilities later in life (but also keeping with book three a reduced psi strength and ability). With ambition being quoted in many of the texts about the zhodani.. what would you say if a hard working zhodani prole with a PSi of 5 decides to save his money and have after hours classes on psionic development.. he manages over the years to achieve a limited break through in telepathy ( the easy one and clairvoyance ) {example Telepath 3 and clairvoyant -4) is he still a prole since he wasn’t trained at youth? … does it create a class struggle issue with in canon about the zhodani? I am just musing about it… besides I never agreed with the proles being completely non-psionic … Fresh fruit? Rotten produce?
