    In these dark times the free world needs a Sheridan!

    With the fall of Russia, the rise of China, and growing authoritarianism in the Western world we need a person preferably of a military and diplomatic background who is willing to band together freedom loving people worldwide to fight this darkness!


    Or would viewing things as an epic battle of good vs evil make things even more problematic?

    Do we need freedom loving people everywhere to work together?

    I mean you're right, but good luck getting numbskulls to realize that and actually work together.

    I don't know who or what Sheridan is?

    Is it perhaps too much to ask that we not get our guidance on politics from say, Sci-Fi novels or TV shows?

    Well, considering the sad fact that the GOP's dumbing down of America has been fully realized with our current idot-in-chief...fantasy and sci-fi examples does come across as "reasonable" options these days.

    It's worth noting that while well-intentioned, many of these sorts of people function under an explicitly authoritarian system. "Do what I say because if you don't then the bad guys win and things will be worse." The military-command structure that Americans enjoy jacking off to as "freedom saving" is not a system of freedom preservation. The trick is always getting the military leaders who enjoy a position of power and prestige to give up that power to people who may not understand or even be capable of wielding it, but trusting that they will eventually get the hang of making decisions for themselves.

    I'd argue that a Lelouche would be more useful than a Sheridan.

    Its more helpful to society to have a singular person to hate, than it is to have someone to obey.

    Without the Shadows, there would be no Sheridan.

    I really can't figure OP out. He writes like an autistic teenager, seems mostly obsessed with Scifi, seems to have generally good intentions, but sometimes references media that nobody under the age of 30 would realistically know.

    I mean in the real world, the sort of people who acquire absolute power are neither idealists nor nice people. It would be great if they were, but struggles for power are not a "Nice guy wins" scenario. Typically the person who is willing to kill, cheat, steal, and lie his way to the top has a massive advantage over people that play nice.

    Same reason why drone striking a corrupt head of state isn't going to lead to some enlightened leader rising up from the masses to lead the nation into a golden age. It is going to be another vicious petty tyrant, who happens to be the most ruthless of the contenders.

    Just because Lorgar was an idiot, and got, despite immense numerical advantage, by his own legion and by his allies, and backstabbing the Ravenguard, himself almost killed by Corax and Curze had to save his sorry ass. He is such a failure of a primarch.

    What, you mean I shouldn't watch some anime, find it extremely profound and deep, and then make connections between the bad guys and liberals?

    This is actually some pretty profound advice for a large number of people on this forum!
