Re: Would a black slaver or a concentration camp chief be controversia

She could have been the princess of the entire star system, so the destruction of one measly planet shouldn't effect her legal standing...

Just talking out loud, but after you blow a planet up, shouldn't that make it easy to strip mine, since it would be insane if the "Empire" didn't already have the tech to efficiently mine an asteroid field....

Leasing mining rights would earn Leia a mint she could funnel straight back into the Rebellion and then underpin the New Republic.

Although, it's pretty clear that the Emperor would have absorbed Alderan's resources into the imperial treasury, just like how America seizes houses of the extended relatives of drug dealers.
