A Matter of Tradition
After the death Carn`ilo` Sabosen the CAiE became even more attached the traditionalist philosophy Nilos had supported. After his death, the philosophy underwent a refinement, as some elements were changed(such as an anti-human bias), but the core premise of the philosophy remained.
The Traditionalist Philosophy held that it was the traditional Chiss institutions, as the natural embodiments of Chiss values, were to be held in high regard. It criticized what it felt were Progressive efforts at "poisoning it" with changes.
The Progressives accused them of being racists and argued that it was time for a more pluralistic strategy. This included recruiting nonchiss to high positions, allowing for both groups to exist in peace,and adapting. The Traditionalists rejected this. They argued that Flar had added the caveat about allowing nonchiss in high positions to reward his friends(such as FF Minister of State, Simon Eusnomis). The traditionalists also stated that it was impossible for two groups to exist who were opposed philophically, as the chiss society would be forever divided as a result. Finally, they derided Flar Gar's claim of the need for "adaptation" as "revisionism to legitimize himself".
On Year 12 Day 319, the CAIE announced that it had accepted the merger proposal of The Chiss Ascendancy. Eventually House Nakesh led efforts to reconcile dissatisfied Traditionalists with Progressives.The result of this was the Chiss Parliament.
The Chiss Ascendancy-in-Exile allowed the Tradionalists to truly define themselves. In the beginning, they had simply been opposed to the progressives, but having their own organisation gave them a chance to define their philosophy. It was this coalescing of ideas into the Traditionalist philosophy that allowed the Tradiitonalists to take the lead years later. This is evident in the fact that the CAiE's emblem became the logo for the Fifth Chiss Ascendancy.
