The Big Flaw of the horde isn't that they give their people more freedom, it's a chronic lack of control displayed by their "Warchief", who as far as absolute despots go, is kind of terrible at his job. He couldn't keep Grom from going off and attacking everything that wasn't an orc in the third war. Thrall's inability to reign in Grom cost the Night Elves their God, and their Sacred Forests. It cost the trolls their original home when Grom attacked the Humans who were suppressing the Murloc population. From the murder of Cenarius to Broken Front, the horde has been plagued with a lack of control. The Alliance, who doesn't have centralized leadership, doesn't make mistakes of that magnitude. Sure, there are some people in the Alliance who are a little off putting, but you don't see them Butchering the Horde when the Horde is on the offensive against the undead.

No, They just save the indigenous races that the alliance would otherwise leave by the way side. The Alliance just butcher the Horde everywhere else. I take it you only play as alliance? Otherwise you would know that Blizzard write the quests in such a way to paint the opposing faction as the bad guys. The real truth is somewhere in between.And Varian is so blinded by hate that he is going to send is own kingdom up the spout in order to get revenge (despite the fact that it was the Defias - a problem of his own making - who really betrayed him).

This is a little delayed but in response to Anyurisem's comment:"And Varian is so blinded by hate that he is going to send is own kingdom up the spout in order to get revenge (despite the fact that it was the Defias - a problem of his own making - who really betrayed him)."The Defias were, in fact, not Varian's fault at all. The House of Nobles overruled him in attempting to pay the Stonemasons what the deserved. The House of Nobles that were, in fact, being influenced by none other than Lady Katrana Prestor - Onyxia herself.Not to mention that the Stonemasons in question would not have been required at all had the Horde never razed Stormwind.
