I think that was Lumen's point; that Therm can't just round up a couple of his drinking buddies and launch a coup.


Ironically enough, many coups in history were launched by the political equivalent of "a couple of drinking buddies" (Carnation Revolution and the overthrow of the Brazilian Empire come to mind) and succeeded, so I really wouldn't be too dismissive of its power as a tool of national rebirth.

It's all fun and games until a group of drunk German guys get arrested, and one of them writes a crummy book while stuck in prison.
Catholic, pro-life, and proud of it. I prefer my debates on religion, politics, and sports with some coffee and a little Aquinas and G.K. CHESTERTON here and there. Not that I need the coffee, but you know... :3

So apparently I am an ENFP!

faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us...
and the greatest is love."

We're close enough to 500, and this thread has long since stopped being about the midterms', that I will make use of the change of year to declare that a thread talking about an election in 2018 has been completed in 2019. It's closing time. You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here.
To those who feel, life is a tragedy. To those who think, it's a comedy.
