You know you want to offer this position to someone who never wanted a part in that world to begin with. Take the power formally away and give it to the council.
You seem to think our existance is some major player in the political game. We are at best refugees, a ragtag group of misfits from a country that has had decades of unrest and if anything are pests. We are not a player on the international scene. Maybe in time. We can't even control the castle we live in. How much trust would you give us, looking in from the other side? We cant leave. We cant protect ourselves from what brought us here. We cant control what is done to us. You cant expect to open your door and invite someone into your house if it's on fire. The problems with sustainability are far more significant to me than the international community.
We are. I am. Focus doesn't negate the existance of other issues.
