A Hairline Crack

It is both fortunate and unfortunate that the empire has a high degree of political control over its citizens. Fortunate, in that intelligence services have identified a computer contractor as a likely whistleblower of highly-classified government surveillance programs. Unfortunate, in that the leaking of such programs will prove highly embarassing. Currently overseas, sources suggest he will meet sympathetic journalists within the next twenty-four hours. What should you do?

Choices :
Discredit

Though still damaging, through bribes and dirty tricks, we can cause uncertainty as to the leak's veracity.

  • Modifies the Geopolitical axis towards Homeland
  • Defiant on AllMyCities for -1
Confess

The surveillance program was an error which we must admit to. Conspiracy theories will be rife.

  • Modifies the Geopolitical axis towards World
  • Superstitious on AllMyCities for -1
Intercept

It is not without risks, but using the secret police to detain the whistleblower might ensure their silence.

  • Modifies the Order axis towards Authority
  • Low chance of bad consequences
