    • These days a warrior cannot be a poet because to be a poet means he has to have a conscious and know when he is being exploited for nefarious purposes, because that is the basis upon modern warfare

    • A politician should have to serve in a role that helps their country or community for 5+ years and be good at their job before being able to be elected. If they served in the military they should have to be at least an E5/6 or O3/4. What do y'all think?
