    Who is your favourite world leader?

    An 'idle curiosity' sort of question: the objective is that people will say (as concisely as possible) who & why.

    Very open-ended and free-form by intent, and very definitely public, so anyone can make what they will of anything anyone says.

    Ideally, this would be a perpetual project (so if anyone in academia can take this on, then so much the better), for it's greatest value would be as an on-going survey, over a very long period of time, of world-opinions/views of current world-leaders - social data for future generations, to help them try to figure out wtf we were thinking when we did whatever.

    Not a single bloody one of them.

    Nobody, and I mean NOBODY who is considered a "world leader[0]" deserves any respect whatsoever. They are all either bloody useless or shysters of the first water, or some combination of the two. I ave no idea why, but it seems to be in the job requirements.

    That said, as a voter I think I am my .fav "world leader[0]".

    [0] Whatever the fuck that means.

    ...because he's fictional, fights his own bloody wars instead of sending someone else to do it, would be a few hundred light years away on his own world of Qo'noS if he weren't fictional and he's got one eye rather than no eye, dear.
