This is the first in what may be a series of Whats ifs for the 40k fluff.
Had the emepror lived and was not weakened by horus in the fight. How would the imperium be different today, and would he have forgiven the traitor legions, tell the loyalists to be nice and act like this never happened.
Also If the emperor was alive now (this also includes if he was revived), and any traitor legions for some unknown reasons wanted to return to the imperium, would the emperor forgive them?
i think your missing the big picture... if he was alive now, would every Wednesday be free ice scream day?
No sig required.

You're basically asking "What would the world be like today if the single event which has had the most impact on history didn't happen 10,000 years ago?"
You might as well ask "What would the world be like today if the Iron Men had never rebelled?"
I think that the other gentlemen are trying to say that wej ust don't know. That's part of the amazing gothic feel of 40k - we don't really know much about the Emperor - from what we do know he seemed like quite a compassionate man - so your version of the future might not be far from the truth. Of course, if that was true then that means that the Emperor really isn't in control and it's all down to the High Lords and the Inquisition - in which case, how do we explain the SoB's acts of faith, the astronomican, etc. If the Emperor is powerful enough to project a light across the whole galaxy and he really was a compassionate man, I think we can assume that he wouldn't let the xenophobia and oppression continue.
So in answer to your question, I don't think he would forgive and forget - but I really don't know!
My take on it has always been that the Emperor doesn't have much choice. If he stood up for what he truly believes, humanity would soon go extinct. So, he aids the Imperium because he wants mankind to survive.
That is my opinion, however, and is not really supported in fluff.
