If these rulers were in a different time period, such as churchill being in the period of ww2 and not the period of the falklands war, they would be considered proud, thoughtful, for the people.
So to get re-elected they fail to combat the problem seriously and it just becomes worse.
If they fix the problem they will have dogma and programtism sticking to them whether they like it or not they wanted it. The eyes of the media may have done horrible things to them; destroyed reputations and honour.
Who would vote for a honourless fiend who commited such an such an act in this year?
