I do not particulary like Kes but nevertheless i find your last post... hmm,i can't seem to find a right word.
Kes stood up for your city countless times even before i was born. Many will say he is insane but it doesn't change the fact that this man willingly put his life on the line time after time for what he believes in,his home and its citizens.
Seems to me it is you who treat him like dirt.
You - another one in long line of either protected or pacifists rulers of Mercinae,who think their hard mining work and occasional resurrection is all city needs.
Unless you and your kind start to show due respect to true mercinaen fighters,who are so rare these days,your pacifist city is going to continue its pathetic existance,slowly breaking down into pieces of mediocricy.
