Default Emperor is kind of a hypocrit

Ok after Reading descent of Angels there is one thing I don't understand

The Emperor ( beloved by all ) forbids Magnus from using warp-powers
But the Dark Angels have Librarians and training programms for new recruits.....

Doesnt'seem right to me somehow.............

im guessing it has something to do with the fact that the warp magic magnus used requires incantations and stuff, so it seems more "witchcraft" like. that and even the librarians are all that trusted by their battle-brothers. theres only a few of them in each legion, but magnus' bunch were all pretty much psykers.

The Emperor does not forbid Magnus, he forbids all.

The only Psyker powerful enough to fully utilise the warp is the Emperor himself, and he has seen what he the warp, or rather what is in it can do. Instead of risking it, he forbids its use.

I've not read the book, but from the Wiki page about it, it seems as if the tampering that the Dark Angels Librarians did (always been on the sly, has Lion El'Johnson), utilising the warp ultimately had some sway over their actions during the closing stages of the Heresy (i.e, the Assault on Caliban).

The Emperor decreed the usage of psykers in the so called Edicts of Nikaea.
He banned unrestricted sorcery and magic (the kind of stuff Magnus was into) and restricted the use of psykers to those that would be trained in ways that would benefit Mankind as a whole.

The whole of the Imperium is hypocritical. They fight to preserve humanity, yet they are the biggest destroyers of humanity. Purges, repression, brainwashing/indoctrination, slavery just to name a few of the practices directed towards their own. Sound familiar?

I have to say that the Imperium are the biggest bad-guys of them all. Chaos wants the freedom to do as they choose, Eldar want to survive, Orks want to fight, Tyranids eat, Necrons harvest and so on. Only the Imperium mass-murders it's own people so freely and unthinkingly. They praise ignorance and damn the enlightened/intellectual souls. Humanity's greatest strengths are repressed in favor of blind obedience and servitude. Individuality is a crime punishable by the death of worlds. Ruthless dictators control the populace of planets with an iron fist in the name of a dead magician who sits on a golden throne uncaring for the billions of lives ended in suffering every day. The same corpse-god feeds on the souls of thousands of his own subjects every day to slow the coming of the inevitable oblivion that he is surely and steadily slipping into.

I may play Space Marines, but that's only because I like to play the bad guy.

Descent of Angels is set a couple of centuries before the Council of Nikea (spelling?) so the Dark Angels would have been allowed Librarians then.

Who said anything about the Dark Eldar? Bunch of sadistic space-homos that they are.
