A little more on the God Emperor

He destroyed all the spice so that humans would invent a way to navigate fold-space without needing the Spacing Guild’s monopoly with it’s prescient navigators. Also to remove people’s dependence on spice in general and not be able to be ruled by its necessity.

The Fish Speakers (Leto’s all woman police force) are all Atreides descendents. It’s not explicitly stated, just that they are faster and stronger than people used to be. Well the only other people that way are those on the core Atreides breeding line. It’s confirmed int eh first chapter of Heretics of Dune though when the Bene Gesserit say that the remaining Fish Speakers don’t have exclusivity on those genes.
