"Eradicating your people?" Logan frowned: "I have no intention of eradicating your people. In war, it is very important to underline the difference between a country's Government and its People.
I have no quarrel with the Equestrian people. My quarrel is with the Equestrian government, specifically Princess Celestia, Luna and Cadence.
They started this war when they sent a Shadowbolt unit to attack me, in this very office. Their attack failed and they plunged both of our countries into a needless war, that could have easily been avoided.
Your government leaders started this war, miss Sparkle. They ordered your military to attack...
If I remember correctly, you were forced to sink an Equestrian battleship, because they refused to listen to reason and almost killed you and your friends.
Since then, I have been making every effort to end this war. And we have indeed, ended this war.
Celestia was removed from your government. You took control of your country and you signed a peace treaty with the Union.
And I'd like to keep that peace treaty alive. The Equestrian people have done nothing wrong and I don't want them to suffer any more conflicts."
Logan deeply inhaled, the passion of his words vividly reflected in his eyes:
"You wish to know, why the world was so quickly United? The simple answer is - The Architects. The Uroburos. And every other lunatic that sought to burn down our world.
Our people want peace. They want safety and security, for themselves and their families. They want their children to grow without fear. They want to sleep at night, without thinking, what if the world ends tomorrow?
The Architects almost extinguished all life on the planet, and our people were too divided to effectively combat this threat. Alone, we are weak. But together, we can achieve everything.
That is why the world united so quickly. Because together, we can build safer world for our families.
You wish to know the basis for the Union? The basis is this - the total eradication of all borders, and the Unification of our world.
Equal rights, freedom of speech and freedom of religion for all.
In a world where everyone is united, there will be no more wars, no more discrimination or racism. Who will you fight, if there are no countries? Who will you invade, if there are no borders?"
Logan sighed. His eyes became a little sad:
"Why do wars happen... do you know?
Territories, resources or interests that you are determined to own. Ideology, religion, pride. Wars are fought over these objectives all the time. Meaning that when those objectives are met, the war will end. That, or when the cost of lives, outweighs the gain"
Logan slowly looked at you. A deep sadness began lingering inside of his eyes:
"I want to create a world where our interests are shared. Where borders or territories have no meaning, where all resources are shared.
This is my legacy to the world. My gift for you and your children. A world where your descendants will not know the meaning of war. Where families can live together, in peace."
He looked down: " I.... my family.. was lost to the Architects. My wife and daughter, died... because the world was too divided, to fight the common threat. Perhaps if we united sooner, they would have still be alive.
And through my suffering, I will make sure that what happened to me, will never happen to anyone else"
Logan closed his eyes and turned away. For a split second, you thought you saw his hands slightly shaking. He nervously inhaled and looked at you again:
"...I'm not a petty dictator, that only seeks power. Once the world is united, I will pass a new law, demanding each region to elect a representative and the world will be ruled by a council of people. Because a single man should never have power, to rule the entire world.
Once the world will unite, I will step down, because there will be no more need.. for a Director"
