for theatrical_muse: Talk about politics

Politics are just games, if you think about it. Twisting one's words to suit one situation or another. Saying things without saying them. Not saying things by saying things. It's a complicated world of correct forks and spoons and dress codes and language. But, really, in the end it's still a game.

There are winners. There are losers. And then there are the ones who are forced to watch it all, and they're the losingest losers of them all.

I have taken seventy-two classes on political systems. Now when I say "taken", I mean I may or may not have actually attended those classes, though I did receive high marks in all of them. And when I say "receive", I mean Professor Borusa really should've put a different administrative code on his matrix downloads.

All the same, I think I'm fully qualified to say that politics are boring. They're not just boring, they're destructively boring. There's nothing less interesting in the universe than listening to people talk about things that people already know about. And then, in the end? All the talks end up leading to arguing, then fighting, then wars.

And if there's one thing I do know about, it's War.

Yes, yes, I know. Political systems can help keep the universe from sliding into chaos, they keep people happy, and in the end no party is complete without its own share of politics and gossip. There are people who play political games and then there are people like me. People who would rather run from a political debate rather than listen to it. People who would rather run in general, come to think about it.

So! There's only one political game I play:

My favorite bit is that if I destroy the buildings with enough natural disasters, the people start building churches. Oh, I love humans! Even packing the coding in their video games with superstition!
