I'm on my own side.

Politics, is just a game. I usually sit right in center court where no one can see me. Right on the line. Once they become aware, and realize iv deflected the ball a couple of time, or some other unspecified number, they get very mad.

Politics is a game that typically takes what is relatively decent, and manages to screw it up so completely for as many people as possible till they are forced to rebel. (The leaders make a great profit, become very famous, then they, and their families typically die horrible deaths.)

They might go in good, they change.

Where before people were ignorant, that is changing.

i already have power, so the whole "politics" is one of those things that you simply have to endure.

How would you prevent an anthropologist?

...who also happened to do intelligence operations, and would rather be doing engineering?
