Your/YL's Reaction to AL's Quote - Act 2

Postby The Great-German Empire » Wed Aug 15, 2018 10:55 am

Long ago in a distant land, there was an F7 game thread that would allow for nations to post their leaders' quotes and to react to other national leaders' quotes. Sadly, it lost momentum and is now dead.

I believe that the thread was a quality one, as evidenced by the many pages it went through before inactivity, therefore I'm going to try and bring it back.

Nation A: "Politicking's a good job, mate. It's indoors, challenging work - I'll guarantee you'll not go hungry Because at the end of the day, 'long as there's two people left on the planet, someone is gonna want someone to lie to them."
-Leader A

Nation B: "That is a shocking display of cynicism and I won't stand for it!"
-Leader B
"I have nothing against the nanny state - just actual nannies"
-Leader B

I'll start.


"Politics is an art, and there is irrefutable proof. Like in writing and painting, the most important thing is to make the masses like what you're giving them - changing masses, at that - and so, hard as you may try, you will never find absolute formulae in politics that won't be supplanted in half a century by some hotshot who wants to try out something new. In fact, that's how I got my office. In politics, there is no law of gravity, no DNA structure, no atomic masses - just the crowd, your rivals and yourself."

Yeah...same.

I remember of a past life where I started a nuclear war. A fellow survivor walked barely 5 meters out of an evac shelter and got attacked by a wild moose, and which he somehow managed to kill by thrashing its skull with his Nintendo brick. It broke both of his legs so he couldn’t walk, so he played Game Boy instead to avoid depression and distract from the pain. He was getting ravenously hungry so he dragged his crippled body to a sharp rock and used it to rip out raw chunks of moose flesh and intestines playing Game Boy in between bouts of regurgitating the disgusting flesh and entrails while dying of thirst....Then a pack of coyotes ate him alive. The lesson here is, don’t start nuclear war.

"Comrade Doctor, do you think that the free healthcare program is actually worth it? Do you think that our people use it too much or too little in comparison to the tax they pay every year?"
- Dr. Ivan Feodorovich Belinsky, Minister of Science, Technology and Education

"I can't tell exactly in numbers. But think it this way. Zitravgradians are stronger than they look and they don't come to hospitals for petty cold or fever. But when they do come to the hospital, they might or might not have a life-threatening condition or chronic diseases. Also, much of the money spent in healthcare would go to treating radiation, maternity ward and curing alcoholism. In short run, it is not profitable. But in long run, it is at least sustainable. Remember that the state actually has profits from cosmetic and sex change surgeries, as well as some dentistry programs -- not to mention a growing pharmaceutical industry. We even have enough funds to launch Blue Cross operations abroad. The Workers' Party strictly believes that healthcare is the right of the people and the state must provide it."

As my factbooks are limited right now, imagine an occult version of iceland that was isolated for about a thousand years until it was invaded by the UK in WWII and released in the 60s. Imagine that for the entirety of history until WWII, paganism was still dominant in the country and it was ruled by Prophets. Today the country is locking itself down and halting attempts to alter their way of life- as the British did to them- by any means necessary.
