Just realized I should of put this in Story and Lore....
In the hope he won't devour them.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

Most peole never ever saw him in person.. as Political figure he is the empire savior not the end of it.
No one knows about the emperor plans save for Lord scourge and Revan. The other sith and the Imperial guard close to him are under his control. His influence, brainwhased if you will.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.

Yeah. Because Emperor told that to everyone.

Wait, he did not! Only Emperor's Wrath and Revan knows it.

He's "the most powerful " sith in the world, would you want to defy him when he can just consume you? It's basically because he is so powerful, and because just a handful of people know of it.

It's explained a bit in the JK story on Belsavis.

As the Emperor himself says, "there is no death, there is only the Force, and I am its master." He wants to finish the ritual he started a millenium ago and turn himself into a god. His followers believe that after he destroys this tainted world, he will create a new, perfect world, and raise those who were loyal (or their souls, it's rather metaphysical) from the dead to live again.

Of course he might just be lying, but there you go.

Actually, as far as I can tell, the sith that do know and support him are not actually insane.

They are deluded and evil, but neither of those makes a person insane.

The few people in game we meet who know of his plans are pretty brainwashed.

It's also written about in the book "Revan":

Eh, it's been a while since I've read the book, so the above is just from memory. Feel free to correct any mistakes I've made.

Emperor is not here to be questioned. You obey and don't question him. That's how it is supposed to be. Everything else is a treason. We are his servants, that's why.

Because he plays a mean jazz solo every time somebody comes to question him.

People come in all angry, flustered and like "ooh, don't devour the galaxy, brozef, we need it on Tuesday for Sarah's Sith graduation" and he just whips out his saxophone and jams until you totally mellow out and are, like, down with the galaxy dying to serve his immortal hunger or whatever, man, like, why must we always fight, dude? Peace.

But that's just a theory. Play the Sith Alternative Rock Musician's or the J(edi)-Pop Star's campaign till the end and you'll see this for yourself.

Sorry, spoilers .
