Hmmm... there is enough political turmoil in the Alliance. The thing is that we keep it under wraps and you don't see it that much in-game.The Horde has some interesting things coming up, but the Alliance is as complex in it's relationships and this shows only part of it.Great article, I'm eager to read the 2nd part. :)

There's an interesting subtext to the human end of Alliance politics where there's been at least two major peasent revolutions in the past thirty years.The Defias Brotherhood was formed because skilled labour was screwed over by the self-entitlement of the Stormwind nobility and their whole scheme was about putting together a force capable of overthrowing an inherently unfair government.The cult of the damned was able to recruit sucessfully because it offered a view of the world where the peasentry was able to advance based on merit. It's even in the books on the Cult. Which suggests that everything isn't all wine and roses for the underclass over there.

@ MurdertimeYou just sprung my inner revolutionary. Communism and peasant uprisings are the bestest.

To be fair, the Delfias were underpaid/not paid due to influence/dark magic by Lady Prestor - AKA Onyxia. She convinced Varian not to pay the stonemasons if I recall correctly, and continued the influence over Bolvar. By the time WoW starts, they're a fully-functioning terrorist organization.
