I know the difference.
The reason the Alliance *doesn't* work is because it is written that way. It's written that it should always fail. But it doesn't *have* to be that way. If the Alliance is as ambiguous as you people keep saying, then it *could* work. There could be times when it does good things. But of course the almighty Joss would never let us see that, would he?
